Maru continued to make GSL history as he swept Jin Air teammate Trap 4-0 to reach his fourth consecutive Code S finals. Maru tied soO's record for four straight finals appearances (set in 2013-2014), and has a chance to break his own record of three consecutive Code S championships with an incredible fourth title in a row.
Although Trap had proven his PvT prowess with prior victories against INnoVation and TY, he was unable to summon the same form in his first ever Code S semifinal match. Maru's harassment and subsequent attacks steamrolled Trap in the first two sets, and Trap's later attempts at all-ins and aggression could only seem desperate in comparison.
After the games, Maru made the surprising admission that he had been taking things relatively easy compared to 2018, and that he considered Classic an easier opponent than Trap (a common compliment Maru paid his teammates during his 2018 run).Maru will face Classic in the grand final match, set for Sunday, Apr 14 8:00am GMT (GMT+00:00)
