Notable Games[edit]

Overwatch (ASL Map) South Korea Terran Last Last opens with a bunker rush. The game gets even more interesting from there. This match highlights the notable features of the map very well: The vulnerable 3rd base, the cliffs next to the natural, and the wide open center all play a part in deciding the outcome.
