-Some Interesting Notes-
sAviOr's MSL dominance
sAviOr has played in the last 5 MSL finals winning 3 of them. The only player to have accomplished a finer record is none other than the player sAviOr beat in Shinhan 3 OSL, NaDa. NaDa has played in 6 MSL finals winning 3 and getting 2nd in the other 3. The difference one may argue is that sAviOr plays very consistently and plays in 5 finals IN A ROW. Could this be the MSL where sAviOr plays in his 6th MSL final?
The Protoss Savior, the anti-sAviOr, Bisu
Back in the Pringles 2 MSL Results and Standings, I said there may never be a Protoss dominance in the MSL. Traditionally Protoss have always struggled to have a heavy presence in any individual tournament. However, when Bisu trampled over sAviOr it no doubt gave hope to Protoss fans everywhere. Could this be the start of something new? Bruce Lee Toss, will you have an amazing career like Bruce Lee and have an early end? I hope not.
<font size = 3><center>The Players</center></font>
A big change in this MSL is that they have changed the format from a double elimination group 16 player to a giant 32 double elimination group. Pretty much the first stage of the game has just been doubled meaning twice the amount of players, and twice the amount of seeds.

<font size = 3><center>The Maps</center></font>
Last seasons maps were Longinus 2 and Blitz X which were remakes of the previous season's maps. Desert Fox and Reverse Temple were introductory maps for Gom TV 1 MSL. Traditionally MSL will keep a map or two with some changes and introduce some new maps. They also share 1 map with OSL. However, this season they've gone for a big change and gotten 4 new maps. This was done to help keep the gameplay fresh rather than have repetitive games from last season. Good or bad here they are.
Many thanks to SonuvBob for updating us on the maps.
Gom TV Loki (곰 TV 로키)
Symmetrical 2 player map that has a very easily securable gas natural but a really difficult to secure 3rd gas. This may help PvZ greatly and may encourage two base play rather than three base. There are also MANY routes to your enemy giving it a lovely and nostalgic Bifrost feel. I think this map is really brilliant and although it encourages two base macrofests, I feel it may also show some great tactical army management and flankings etc.
+ Show Spoiler +
Monty Hall (몬티홀)
This map many of us are already familiar because it was introduced at the Racewars Superfight. Very interesting map that has 3 gas naturals for the 2 players. However all 3 of them are behind mineral walls that players will have to cheat through in order to scout or proxy their opponents. There are no mineral onlys and the map is flooded with 14 gases.
+ Show Spoiler +
This 4 player map is taking a huge leap by having two gas geysers at the main. The natural however, lacks a gas. This may help encourage the Zerg to play less 3 gas and more 2 gas strategies. 3rd gases will be hard to secure. The center of the map has a Forte look to it. It was discussed on Fighter Forum that this map was supposed to be based off of Luna and will be essentially the macro map. You can see this clearly as the naturals are easily defended and the center of the map is large to encourage large army play.
+ Show Spoiler +
This 4 player map introduced with the 2007 Proleague Season 1 may also be another macrofest map. Gas natural is easily secure, 3rd gas is actually very difficult to obtain. So we're going to see a lot of two base macro play on this map I would think. It has a very Lost Temple feel to it, no? The 12-2-6-8 mains and the islands at 10 and 4. Except those islands are ramped and insanely hard to defend. As is the 1 and 7 islands.

<font size = 3><center>Results and Standings for the Group of 32</center></font>
This is the first stage of this season's MSL. Increased by twofold literally from last season. Rather than 4 double elimination groups of 4, we have 8 double elimination groups of 4. The players are selected into a group into a complicated process which is known as steal draft.
The Steal Draft
The steal draft basically works like this. There are 8 seeds and all ranked accordingly from A-H. They are all set in stone into their groups. The bottom 8 ranked players from 32-25 are put in reverse order from A-H. So 32 will be in Group A with #1 seed, 31 will be in Group B with #2 seed, etc. etc. So now we have 8 groups of 2.
The players then put themselves into a group from 9-24. But you can only put your name in a group that has a vacant spot. Who your opponent is first round matters a lot too. After that process is finished we now are finished with Part 1 of the Steal Draft. Confusing, yeah. So now we have 8 groups of 4. Aren't we done, you might ask?
No, the stealing hasn't started yet.
The players ranked 16th-1st now get make switches and adjust where people are. Eg. say Midas REALLY wanted to get revenge on sAviOr and he was ranked 12th, he could switch his name with whoever is playing sAviOr. Alas, there are 11 other players who could possibly switch him out foiling people's plans.
Finally, those with seeds get to make the final changes and then we can see the groups. This is a very complicated procedure but it allows for players to trash talk via picks or verbal trash talk and even spark rivalries with this kind of group pickings. The OSL has a more quick and straightforward process which it makes it difficult to select a rival if you are picked late.
MSL and Double Elimination
So what is double elimination? It's quite simple, really. You have to lose twice to be eliminated. In the Group of 32 play, if you lose twice in your group, you are eliminated from contention. If you win twice, that means you did NOT lose twice so you advance to the Round of 16 Single Elimination. So that means there will be one person with a 2-0 record, one person with a 2-1 record, one person with a 1-2 record, and a loser with an 0-2 record. Players with the 2-0 and 2-1 record advance.
Last season there was another double elimination round with the Group of 8 but not for this season. The second round will immediately begin as a single elimination tournament. Cool.
The games for each group will all be played in one day. That means each group on a certain day will complete all their games from Game 1, 2, Winner's, Loser's, and Tiebreak. The dates are actually very random, much thanks to SonuvBob for the link to the dates.
Note: sAviOr has anounced that he will play Terran against Zerg. No freaking joke. He will play Terran against GoRush in Group B.

<font size = 3><center>Results and Standings for the Round of 16 Draw</center></font>
The second stage of the MSL. Last season the first stage was a 16 player group stage. Now we see that the 16 player group stage gone and we see a 16 player single elimination draw as the second stage of the MSL now.
Gone. It no longer exists after the first stage. Last season they had double elimination for Group of 16 and Group of 8. Well the second stage is no longer a group stage and since it is a single elimination draw. They will be played as best of 3's. Yup. 8 best of 3's.
How is it determined who plays who?
Good question. The players will all be ranked as their Group of 32 group and their place coming out of it. (B1, F2, H2, G1, etc etc.) The matchups are all predetermined by MSL and should be released once the Group of 32 is finished. If you finish second in your group, you will be playing someone who finished first in your group.
The Good, the Bad, and the Pretty
The winners of this stage not only advance to the quarterfinals, they get a seed for next season's MSL! The bad news is for the losers. Since Survivor has been completely scrapped. There's only one place for them to fall and it is a bigger fall now. They go back to MSL Qualifiers.
+ Show Spoiler +
She's SOOO pretty~~
Similar to the Warcraft III ladder system of thumbing down maps. The players who got first in their groups get to thumbs down one map each for the best of 3 single elimination draw. That means they don't have to play the map in their best of three. There are 4 maps and one of them doesn't get picked to play.
Note: July has switched teams. For the Group of 32, he was a part of MBC, so for the record I will keep him as a MBC Zerg, but starting from the round of 16 he will be an SKT Zerg.
Another Note involving a gosu Zerg: Somebody who lives to win informed us in sexy manner that OversKy and DaezanG have been drafted into the Korean Army. This problem is occurring more and more because every Korean male must serve in the Korean Army. The time for OversKy and DaezanG has come and they will enter basic training on June 25th but will later enroll in the Air Force and enter the services of the Air Force Progaming Team, Ace.

Because OverSky won his Round of 16 match but cannot advance to the quarterfinals. That leaves us with 7 players who advanced. Now a wildcard round will be held like the one they held when BoxeR left Pringles MSL. The 8 losers in the Round of 16 will play each other to see who will take that last spot. This will be a single elimination best of 1 play so one loss means no advancing.
A Scheduling Note: MSL will no longer play on Saturdays. They have moved the games to Sunday but will be played at the same time.

<font size = 3><center>Results and Standings for the Quarterfinals</center></font>
This is the third stage of the MSL. The players have been whittled down to naught but eight players. The round of 16 single elimination was a best of three. As we move to the quarterfinals, there is more at stake here, the games are a best of five.
Who Plays Who?
Just follow your nose... I mean KiZzBG's bracket! It's so sexy that it shows the progression of the single elimination, so you can just follow the tree and see who the next opponent of your favorite, or not so favorite players will play!
Good News, Bad News
The losers will no longer be able to play for the title MSL Champion, but they fortunately remain as a seed for the next coming MSL, I am not quite sure how they will be ranked but perhaps by performance or KeSPA ranking. The winners advance to the Semifinals and are two steps away from an MSL title.
Thumbs Down in the Best of Five
You'll notice that the players thumbed down a map but the map still gets played. Because it is a best of five and there are 4 playable maps, this means at least 1 map must be played twice. When the players thumb down a map, this ensures that a map that they may feel is particularly imbalance or not to their favor will not be played twice.

The fourth stage of the MSL. This is the penultimate stage before the finals. This is the where men are separated from the boys. Only 4 players remain but only two get to advance, the other two will remain as the 3rd and 4th seed. Just like the quarterfinals were, the semifinals will be played as a best of five with two maps thumbs downed. The thumbs downed maps will assure they will not be played twice in the best of five.

This is it guys. The fifth and final stage of the MSL. We've gone from a whopping 32 play orgy to 2 players duking it out for a huge place in e-Sports history. Talk about a cockfight. Like the previous two stages, the finals will be a best of five with two maps thumbed down by the players. The thumbed down maps will guarantee that that particular map will not be played twice in the 5 games.
