Naturally, Fruitdealer was also happy with his victory, putting himself into the last eight of Starcraft II's biggest tournament so far. On the other side of the coin, Gregory 'IdrA' Fields, who was eliminated earlier in the tournament, feels like patch 1.1.0 is already out of date. "Blizzard patched the state the game was in several weeks ago," he said in an article on Team EG's website. "ZvT and ZvP will remain largely unchanged while the balance issues in TvP will only be made worse."
The runner up from IEM Cologne did admit that ZvP will be improved from his perspective. "Zealot rushes were the only popular way for protoss to pressure zerg," he said. "As such nerfing zealots should give zerg the time they need." However, in the terran match up, he feels that the reaper nerf is only a minor setback. "All other terran aggression [...] remains mostly untouched." He was equally underwhelmed by the tank changes, claiming that they are "essentially irrelevant in ZvT."
