Group F of the round of 32 delivered the biggest upset of the season, as INnoVation was eliminated in last place without managing to win a single map. Incidentally, the two players to advance were the ones that dealt INnoVation his losses: KeeN, who took first place after one of his best showings in nearly a year, and Classic, who advanced in second place after recovering from an early loss to Creator
The group began with a pair of upsets, with Keen taking out INnoVation 2-0 and Creator defeating Classic by the same scoreline. The underdogs didn't need cheese to take their victories, defeating their far more illustrious opponents in essentially straight-up games (KeeN's rout of INnoVation in a sky-Terran on Thunderbird was particularly impressive). Unfortunately for Creator, he couldn't quite put together the composition to overpower KeeN's bio in the winners' match. Meanwhile, Classic took two decisive victories against INnoVation in the losers' match, busting through the front door before INnoVation's mech composition could get set in game one, and proxy-gating in game two. Classic then took revenge on Creator in the final match of the night, securing his return to the Ro16.
The Code S Ro32 will conclude on July 17th and 20th, with GuMiho, Armani, FanTaSy, and Dear in Group G, followed by Trap, TaeJa, Solar, and Patience in Group H (check out Liquipedia for more information).
