Maru is Out

General Discussion
After a (obvious) win versus Armani 2 -0
A (surprising) loss versus Patience 1 -2
And a final loss versus Innovation 1 - 2

Discuss
Hangover?
Just like serral,he can have a few off seasons/games
Innovation did really become a king slayer by now :D

Beeing the first player who defeats Serral after such a long time of undefeated games in a row and also winning against him in their next game in WESG, winning the tournament, and also winning against Maru the last 2 Times they have played, makes him the only player who defeated both of the kings of 2018.
He really is the kingslayer of 2019 ^^
He prepares for SC3
Maru seems to only do well in tournaments where he has a good amount of time to prepare for his opponent. For later rounds of the GSL it works out but not so much in group stages and it seems that's why he struggled for the last 2 seasons in groups.
I never liked Maru. Carried by proxy cyclones back when that was a thing.
Glad he's getting SMASHED by everyone in every single tournament, and sad he stole so many games from players that were far better than him then.
Not sure what there is to discuss. He just got outclassed.

If you step over a piece of soap in bathroom you risk bumping your head in the closet.
Precisely that happened to both terrans.
It's too soon to make forecasts but hope to see a Dark or Stats win this Code S.

Outclassed by Patience... proxy cheese every game? I knew you were just low league scrub with poor understanding of why someone loses, and claimed to be reasonable. Nah just another troll.

Patience neither has the macro superiority (except proxy and still be bases ahead by protoss design), nor his micro was superior, just the broken proxy builds that do too much, which is what I mentioned in my thread.

Lets see if he can beat Serral next time they meet. Serral has gone beast mode and is closing in around 7.6k mmr in EU.

He may have been good once. But it vanished.
So, he saw an opportunity to stay relevant with cyclones & spammed proxies every single game...and now that it's gone, he keeps losing to everyone.

To this l say : good.
It is almost like even the best SC2 players are human and have bad tournaments occasionally. Even Serral has been losing in 2019 so naturally you should expect Maru to lose too. We should stop holding SC2's best pros to impossible standards and expect them to lose from time to time. Instead of throwing them under the bus when they fumble.

This is just some generic bullcrap. Some players occasionally lose. Or win. Let's be nice. Boring.

Serral losing in the finals to Innovation is very different.

It's common sense and reality of life. It is ridiculous to expect people to perform perfectly every time in a 1v1 scenario like super humans. This is not a team game where your teammates can carry you when you are having an off day.

Uh oh, more inconsistency! When it supports terran, the sky IS blue!
