What's pro TvP going to be like in the new season? Short, if Group B was anything to go by. Trap, Cure, TY, and herO all looked to seize the initiative early on in their Ro16 group, bringing with them a slew of proxies, timings, and early-game tricks (the losers match did offer some room for new EMP shenanigans, with both Cure liberally coating herO's army with EMPs in a couple of lengthier games).
Last season's runner-up Trap proved to be the most proficient on both the offensive and defensive end, and was the first to escape the melee with victories over Cure and TY.
TY came through in second place, surviving his initial match against an aggressive-minded herO, losing the winners match to Trap, and then taking out Cure in the sole mirror-match of the night. Advancing to the quarterfinals keeps TY's WCS Global Finals campaign alive, as he now stands just outside the cutoff at #9 in the rankings.
With Group A and B complete, two quarterfinal matches are set on opposite sides of the bracket: Dark vs TY and KeeN vs Trap. The Code S Ro16 will resume on Wednesday, Sep 04 9:30am GMT (GMT+00:00) with Group C, which has been pegged as the group of death. Maru, Solar, Stats, and Rogue will fight for two quarterfinal spots.
