|iMpulse eSports Recruitment Tournament - Results
With $100 on the line the players taking part in the recruitment tournament had to be at their very best to come out on top. 68 players started the tournament, but only one could walk away the winner.
Match after match took place and players were dropping left and right, until eventually there were four! Heading into the semi-finals were Arthur, ISGByRada, LaGTTBelieve and URVoice. Three of them would walk away with some of the prize pool and one would leave with nothing, they'd worked hard to get this far and all four players put on a great show in order to be crowned the winner.
The first semi-final would see Arthur (Formerly of SlayerS) the Korean Protoss, take on ISGByRada the Venezuelan Zerg. In a tightly contested series, Arthur took game one only to have his lead scrapped when Rada won the second map. Ultimately the experience of Arthur shone through as he kept his composure and went on to take the third map and the series, moving on to the finals to face the winner of the second semi-final.
The second semi-final would be between LaGTTBelieve, a Canadian Protoss and URVoice, also a Protoss player from Canada. Both players played well, but LaGTTBelieve proved too hot to handle for URVoice winning the series 2-0 with some excellent play. He would move on to the final and URVoice would go up against ISGByRada in the third place match.
With the chance to win $5 for a night of Starcraft, both players gave it their all in game one. ISGByRada won the first game and subsequently URVoice forfeited the series. Meaning that ISGByRada finished third in the tournament and pocketed himself $5 in the process. Congratulations to him on a top performance in the tournament.
Onto the final then, this would be a best of seven between Arthur and LaGTTBelieve. The first game went in favour of Arthur who was showing the kind of play that saw him be a part of a top pro gaming team. Not to be outdone though, Believe took the next two games; only to lose the next two making the score 3-2 to Arthur going into game six. Believe pulled out all the stops again, winning the next map taking us into a nail biting finish.
The finals had been brilliant, top Blink micro, good macro work and very impressive execution of plans from both players. Finally, after a grueling series, it was the Korean Arthur who took the final game and took the entire tournament! Believe would finish second, a valiant effort, winning himself $20. Arthur, now $75 richer, was victorious. Congratulations to both players on an incredible tournament and a big congratulations to Arthur for claiming the glory and finishing above all the rest.
Thank you to all the players who took part in the tournament.
