Topic 3 terrans 13 protoss16 zerg in Bnet finals ..
He'd be even more shocked to know that I'd say at least 1 of those Terrans has a good (if not really good) chance of advancing out of his group.

Edit: You beat me to it.
If you want my opinion (assuming 2 people advance per group, but knowing Blizzard's retardation, who knows...) here's who i think will advance (first player listed is 1st for group):
Group A: PartinG + Illusion
Group B: VortiX + Suppy
Group C: Sen + Grubby
Group D: Rain + Babyknight
Group E: Stephano + RorO (this one is kind of a tossup but Zerg OP :P)
Group F: Curious + MajOr (can't decide between MajOr and herO)
Group G: Lucifron and Lowely
Group H: Creator and Scarlett (again really tough to decide)
That makes 3 Terrans advancing. I could see Lucifron and MajOr actually making it to the top 8 if they get REALLY lucky.
That seems reasonable... But personally, I'd rather see equal representation :D
Though it is always cool to see the few rise above the many (when it does happen).
When your options are creator or a decent zerg (scarlett or nerchio) I have a hard time thinking a terran in group A can beat whoever makes it out of group H.
Lucifron might, I repeat MIGHT, have a prayer of making it out of the round of 16 if he doesn't get his brother as his Ro16 opponent.
Major has an outside shot of making the quarters.
This, the terrans that made it are not good enough. The korean nationals weeded out all the terrans who could have made a run at it.
also, I feel like this thread will be more productive if it gets turned into a prediction thread instead a qq thread so...
OP, let's try to keep the qq to a min

Your Stats don't matter when it's been very blatantly clear that non-Korean terrans don't win things and that a bunch of terrans got unlucky. MKP somehow can't win small tourneys. Taeja didn't even compete. MVP pulled out to go win IEM. Polt got to run into Seed's (the best player in the world in PvT at the time) fist, and then has to play HerO, who was just absolutely awesome at the time.
On the flip side, the terran's should have a relatively easy run since they will only have to practice two MU's as supposed to 3.
