This weekend, the Grand Finals of Ownage #3 are to be played between Milton
, the item-timer from Finland, and LocKtar
, the crazy bjuder from Sweden.
LocKtar will try hard to end the duelling era of
Milton, but will he be able to beat the Finn 2x best of 5?
Saturday, May 15th at 20:00 CEST: Milton vs LocKtar, Ownage #3, Grand Finals
LocKtar in the Winner Bracket Finals
LocKtar down into the Looser Bracket Finals
BuLaT in which game
LocKtar won 3-2 after a thriller decider on aerowalk
, bringing him into the Grand Finals.
Milton has performed almost flawlessly so far in the tournament, only losing 2 maps
bps (aerowalk) and
LocKtar on the other hand has lost a total of 7 maps.
Milton is still in the Winners Bracket,
LocKtar needs to win two
best of 5 rounds in order to become the Ownage#3 champion whilst
Milton needs to win only 1 round of best of 5.
I asked around to a few players what their expectations of the coming final were, they answered: adde
I think that the machine from Finland will take this in a 3-2 game.
The only problem I can see right now is that Milton was inactive for
two weeks due to his trip to Spain and we don't know how that will effect him.
But he is a solid player and has the routine so I don't think that it will effect him to
much as long as he gets plenty of warm-up. LocKtar lost in the WB-final vs Milton.
And I would have wanted to see what would have happend if there wasn't the "drama".
I expect an incredible game of course! In my opinion we couldn't have asked for a more epic final in this epic duel tournament. These guys even met in the WB-final, and it was a lot of fuzzzzz about that timeout thing. Time for LocKtar to prove that he's the better DM4 player, and only lost because of the timeout, and for Milton to prove that he would have won the match regardless of the timeout incident. That aside, I think Milton will win this. It is probably gonna be tight on all maps, but Milton does less mistakes and punishes opponents mistakes harder which I think will the deciding factor in this match. We saw LocKtar actually beat the ztn-master Bulat in the LB-final, so gonna be interesting to see what he can do vs an even better ztn player. I hope and think LocKtar will be able to take one, perhaps even two maps so we get some drama, but Milton sure looks strong and I won't give LocKtar that high odds. He even has to win 2xbo5 to win this, afaik? Expect the game to end 3-1 to Milton, but I think all the maps are gonna be tight and nervous games. And of course LocKtar is perhaps the only who could actually pull off a win vs Milton in a BO5 on a good day.
I'm excited and look forward to high quality qw, hopefully LocKtar will win his beloved dm4 this time and we get to see a decider.
then, if now LocKtar wins, another BO5 must be fought as he comes from Losers bracket.
Well I think Milton made a mistake pushing head on to LocKtar's lg last time around and played quite nervously. I expect that we don't see him doing the same mistake again. Also I hope he can play a bit more relaxed knowing that LocKtar would have to beat him twice to win. Also now we know that antilag is enabled and that shaft really bites even with 25ms so he can probably play accordingly.
I'm sure Milton is trying to place himself as an underdog as tVS'ers always do. Especially now that he has been away on vacation (read: qw duel training camp), but clearly he is the favourite in this game. My expectation is to see one of the best duel games we have ever seen in the scene. About the maps I think we will see Milton winning dm6 and ztndm3. Ztndm3 however might be a lot more close than last time. Seems like LocKtar has shaped himself up on that map, which he proved against Bulat. I do expect LocKtar to take down aero like last time, and there should be nothing stopping him on dm4 this time. It will all come down to dm2 and it can go in any direction. Somehow I fear we will see another title going to tVS this season, but LocKtar should feel free to prove me wrong
...but in the end of the day, we all know that whoever Hagge
allows to win will be the winner of Ownage #3.
