The working week has come to a close but there’s still plenty of StarCraft II action to come over the weekend at Intel Extreme Masters gamescom. With the final places in tomorrow’s quarterfinals to be decided and one step closer to the US$25,000 prize pool and WCS point to take, groups C and D made for some exciting games.
Group C started off a day of StarCraft II with a mixture of decisive 2-0s and back-and-forth victories. After all the matches were concluded, it was ForGG and Lambo who were ultimately revealed to be the group’s quarterfinal tributes.
|State vs. uThermal||2-0|
|Lambo vs. ForGG||1-2|

Group D definitely looked to be the group of death from the outset. Its battles were fiercely fought, with most victories far from clear-cut, but in the end it was Nerchio and Patience who succeeded in advancing to the next stage.
|StarDust vs. Patience||1-2|
|Nerchio vs. TLO||2-1|
|Patience vs. Nerchio||1-2|
