Flash played several TvP games in recent tournaments. He won PartinG in Proleague Grand Final, Dear, Classic, herO and Pigbaby in the IEM Toronto qualifier. He made some interesting minor changes on top of the standard TvP play.
Taeja’s gas first TvP aggression build is so successful and celebrated that the build has been well studied and countered by Protoss. Despite this, Taeja continues to mix this unique build in his games, but with a twist.
IEM Cologne was packed with great games. Polt’s performance was astonishing, and really showed his intelligence. Specifically, his tactical reaction to
the literally most hated TvP build blink Stalkers build has the potential to shake the metagame.
There has been a slow shift in metagame for the TvZ match up. Perhaps, a more accurate way to express it is that Terran is trying to break the current metagame.
This is my collection of autograph from 2013 IEM Singapore. Proud of it.
