Proleague Round 1 - Week 3 Preview
Games in Proleague will start 30 minutes earlier this coming week at 18:30 KST.
There are some incredible matchups in this round.
Here are the top 3!
- PartinG (SKT1) versus Flash (KT)
- Maru (Jin Air) versus DongRaeGu (MVP)
- PartinG (SKT1) versus herO (CJ)
PartinG versus Flash
PartinG's best matchup is versus Protoss, but he is no slouch against Terran. That said, he recently went down 0-2 to ByuN and 0-1 to Maru.
Flash has never regained his former glory, but he is always a formidable opponent and entertaining to watch. He plays equally well in any matchup, but his last three Protoss matches saw him taking out eMotion 1-0, while going down to defeat 0-1 to both Sora and Rain.
PartinG should win this, but the beauty of Flash's style is that he can win any match on any day.
Aligulac.com sees it like this.
Maru versus DongRaeGu
Maru gets better every week and frankly, it's hard not to root for him in every matchup. He does things as a Terran that seem to transcend what others (even Taeja) can accomplish.
DongRaeGu has had his ups and downs, but his best matchup by far is versus Terran.
I don't think DRG has much of a hope versus Maru, but that's why we play the games. Upsets happen.
It's no surprise that I take Maru in this match.
PartinG versus herO
PartinG is in his wheelhouse versus another Protoss player. herO has been getting better with every tournament. This is a great match that could go either way, but I'm taking herO.
