ImageThe God Protoss "MC" adds another trophy to his collection after seizing the DreamHack throne, defeating "WhiteRa" 3:2 in a tense Protoss mirror.

KR is crowned DreamHack Stockholm champion. After winning his second GSL, the "Kratos Protoss" flew to Sweden to seize yet another tournament, adding a third gold medal to his collection.

MC's endeavour at the grand final was not a walk in the park, though. His opponent was none other than UA Oleksii 'White-Ra' Krupnyk. The Ukrainian has already proved that he can beat MC in a Protoss mirror even with the bizarre usage of Warp Prism so he was not an enemy to be taken lightly.

KR 3:2 UA Oleksii 'White-Ra' Krupnyk
-0:1 Tal'Darim Altar
-0:2 Metalopolis
-1:2 Crevasse
-2:2 Xel'Naga Caverns
-3:2 Shakuras Plateau

White-ra had an explosive start right from the first set. Choosing to put a flavour in his 4-gate, he sneaked a Probe in MC's base and warped in two Pylons while simultaneously pushing the front. Unable to deal both with the front door pressure and the Zealot harass to his probes, MC lost control of the game and GGed out.

White-ra went for even larger gamble at Metalopolis, opening with a quick Colossus into second Nexus. MC, who opened Blink, did not manage to abuse the window of opportunity and even though he blink-sniped Ra's robo facility, he had to deal with one Colossus already on the field and it was mission impossible. 2:0 for White-ra.

MC was not done, however, and continued with his 1-base aggression hoping that he can comeback. And that he did after a perfectly executed 4-Gate on Shakuras and then a nicely timed Blink Stalker play on Caverns, both catching White-ra off-guard and tying the score.

With 2:2 score we all expected to see a fifth set worthy of a grand final. Unfortunately, MC was not planning to give us this and proxied two Gateways straight into White-ra's main. The Ukrainian was completely blind due to his late scouting and when he eventually spotted the proxies there were already enough Zealots to win the game even without a fight.

Thus, MC will go home victorious and $15,000 richer. The God Protoss is now looking forward to the next GSL seasons that starts very soon.
