I wonder if Seoul learned anything from Stage 1. I honestly feel like they got too comfortable/over confident and got a little too "experiment" happy with Gido on support, sitting certain core players against weaker opponents. I'm fairly sure had they just played their strongest hand the entire season there is no way Houston would have taken 3rd place from them.
Being the only Korean team not making the playoffs had to hurt the ego a bit there and hopefully this time around they don't fuck around and just win as many maps/matches as possible. SD 3-1
