Yesterday was held one of the first Starcraft II: Heart Of The Swarm Beta tournaments - SC2TV.ru HOTS Beta Invitational # 1 with a prize pool of $600. The tournament become even more interesting because of patch that brought a few changes to the game balance.
Then Aleksey in the losers bracket defeat mouz.HeroMarine and again proved his superiority over Acer.Bly, but unfortunately lost in the losers final to mTw.DIMAGA.
However, it was enough for White-Ra to take third place and won $100. Aleksey had technical issues all the day that was associated with packet loss to the HOTS Beta server and it is significantly affected to results of matches. White-Ra is very well used Mothership Core changes that was brought by the new patch and looked very confident but unfortunately White-Ra couldn't show good micro in the crucial moments and hadn't able to take better place.
Also we want to remember about succesfull games of White-Ra on eXtensive WD Challenge #1 where Aleksey was able to make all-kill 4:0 and won 150 euros and Western Digital hardware. You can download full replay pack with a little bonus - few close ladder PvT games.
