After a short break from the tournament last weekend we were extremely excited to kick this week's NSL off. Lots of players signed up and we managed to carry a lot of that over to check-ins with a whopping 27 players total participating. It was encouraging to see our Protoss brethren showing up in great numbers as their presence has been somewhat quiet over the last couple weeks. When the dust settled it was Pinecone and Psionic Aftermath's striFe squaring off in the finals, the series was ZvZ and incredibly back and forth but eventually Pinecone pulled ahead and took the series 3-1. A huge shoutout to Railgan and Dutchy for the viewer hosts, and to Shyrshadi and SwagSyndrome for being admins, you guys are awesome! We'll see you next week for Week #18!
