The finals constitute one of the most epic and most influential series in the history of Brood War. Bisu single-handedly revolutionized the PvZ match-up, developing what would be known as the PvZ "Bisu Build". It is based on a Forge Fast Expand, followed up by Stargate play. Using the Corsairs to take down Overlords, Bisu was frequently able to slip in Dark Templar undetected, causing significant damage. Ever since that series, fast-expand Stargate-first builds have become a staple in this match-up.

The Steal Draft[edit]

The steal draft works like this. The players are ranked 1-16. Seeds obviously are 1-4 and are sent to Groups A-D, respectively. The bottom 4, 13-16 are reversely put into Groups A-D. Then the remaining 8 players, 12-5 get put into a spot. But here's the catch, ah yes the catch: those who are 12-5 get to switch themselves with anyone who already has a spot (except the seeds), so it's like picking who you're gonna play first. After that complicated procedure is done, the seeds can switch around anybody they want to be their first opponent. It's a rather entertaining method though confusing at first. Players can diss each other or spark rivalries with this type of drafting system.


Double elimination means that you have to lose twice to be eliminated. In the Group of 16 play, if you lose twice in your group, you are eliminated from contention. If you win twice, that means you did NOT lose twice so you advance to the Group of 8. The order is played in Game 1, Game 2, Loser's, Winner's, and Tiebreak (Winner of Loser's plays the loser of Winner's).

Group of 8 double-elimination is slightly more complicated. It's played in exactly the same way as the Group of 16 play except that after games 1 and 2, the loser's, winner's, and tiebreaks are played as best of three sets.


The MSLs comprise of sixteen players in all. The top four finishers in the 2006 Pringles MSL Season_2 are seeded into this MSL automatically. The remaining twelve players qualified through Survivor League (formerly called Minor League).
