The group stage of the VBSL 2 is virtually over, and we have ourselves 8 brave contestants, who battled for months, and are still alive and fighting!

 

Conference A:

 

Finishing in 1st place, with a record of 7-1 (1 match remaining) is the resident semi-pro VB_Bandit! The reigning champion took care of business with limited practice. He's still the favourite, but doesn't have the same feeling of invincibility he did when he stormed through the playoffs of VBSL 1, losing a whole set and dropping multiple maps over the group stage. Can he find form to stop the uprising, or will there be an upset?

 

In 2nd place, the man who likes to talk the talk, and backed it up by walking the walk to the record of 7-2, VB_JiNxXx! While many others on the SEA server were reaching GM, or rank 1 masters, Jinx often would languish in Platinum. But he dismissed this, saying how he was in Diamond and other stuff on other servers. Time has shown that maybe there was some truth to his claims as he put in a very solid and consistent performance. Unfortunately the people he lost to are still in the tournament, and his word is that he's not in as good a shape as he was a little while ago. Can Jinx make some magic happen and lift himself to the championship?

 

In 3rd place is the VB tournament staple with a record of 7-2, VB_Inter! As expected, Inter did what Inter does best. Causing problems to anyone he faced, but some small inconsistency meant he couldn't finish on top. At his best, he was the only person to win their series vs Bandit. Unfortunately 2 PvP series losses on the way meant he didn't capitalise fully. But having said that, he's still alive and able to beat anyone on his day. The darkhorse in this tournament, can he finally get over the hurdle?

 

Finishing off the groups finalists in 4th place with a record of 6-3, is VBSL newcomer VB_Enak! Starting off slowly, losing his first two rounds, put Enak in a tough spot. But as he practice and practiced, and improved over time, he fought back strong only losing Bandit from that point on. Even though he qualified last in his group, Enak is one of my picks to be the champion. He has improved the most since the start of the season, and in some ways, reminds me of Bandit from VBSL1. If that's anything to go by, watch out VB!

 

Conference B:

 

This group was dominated by the undefeated 1st place finisher, VB_Boony (9-0)! Boony only lost two maps in the entire group stage (one being to the unstoppable power of the proxy-hatch-master VB_Elbows). This wasn't so surprising as he did hit GM for the 2013 ladder season 3. But for Boony, the real test starts now. Can he continue on his dominating run, or will the harder competition prove his match?

 

Following in MKP's footsteps, finishing 2nd was VB's very own mini-MKP: VB_HpK (8-1)! I don't really have much to say about HpK's performance, he beat everyone but Boony, and that's about it. HpK has the potential to be great, and win the VBSL. With his main roadblock not in the VBSl, can he put together a great run, or will lack of practice end his chances?

 

(Note, GrayFox dropped out so he is not counted in the rankings, otherwise he would be 3rd.)

 

Coming in 3rd, is another VBSL newcomer VB_Bayak (5-3,1 to play)!  Bayak's first VBSL started off very rocky, losing his first 3 rounds (round 3 was then given as a win because of a dropout). From there he has progressed much better and made it to the playoffs. Ever the trash talker, this is what he had to say about playing Jinx in the first round: "EZ PZ".

 

Rounding out the playoffs, in 4th place, the high council member himself: VB_Whiplash! With no shitty proleague co-commentator pulling him down, Whippy grinded out a playoff spot, much like his namesake grinded out proleague casts. As you can see, I've run out stuff to say, let's just see if Whippy can pull out some magic?

No I don't, do they choke, or follow through?

 

Going by your answer I'm guess choke.
