GSL 5 BREAKING NEWS

MVP is an insanely good player, so of course he won't be "awful" in TvP but it is definitely his weakest match up by far, and I would say that relative to his TvT and TvZ, his TvP does almost seem "awful"

Disagree on the point that in comparison to his TvT and TvZ his TvP seems awful. As I stated he has lost to some of the best PvT Protoss in the world. If you want to look at specific things in SC2 like unit composition and decisions he has to make towards coming out on top in an engagement, then yes it's awful compared to his unit composition/decision making in TvT and TvZ. But when you look at someone against a certain matchup you look at the player in general. He plays wayyy above average in TvP when it comes to macro, being creative, etc. Psure you couldn't get many terrans that could beat Alicia.
I just think he isn't confident enough in TvP. Probably because it doesn't go well for him in ladder? A possibility I guess.

But that's exactly the point I'm trying to make. Sure his TvP is better than a lot of other terrans TvP, however that is because MVP is just in general so much better than most other terrans, not because his TvP is fantastic or anything. As I said, compared to how he does in the other match ups, his TvP seems awful relative to his TvT and TvZ.

I mean, when he's 20-2 against mirrors and is 6-1 against nestea in tournaments it's not hard to rule that P is his most difficult matchup
but when he was at his best during around GSL 4 I don't think anyone could've stopped him including protosses
if it seems like he's weak against P now it's because the new maps have been really good for protoss against terran

MVP ended up losing so many early units because he couldn't micro quick enough in both games including getting a REAPER surrounded by probes, and when someone has 300 sc2 apm that shouldn't happen under normal circumstances
and also his late game bio army micro was so awfully slow for someone who I believe has the best bio micro in the game
also, lol at adelscott having like 1.4k minerals and 800 gas when he's not even maxed out

He's easily the second best Protoss right now and he plays like MC but he can also actually do things other than strong attack timings
also mvp isn't the mvp he was in season4 for some reason, it wasn't really a surprise he lost

sen shows us (and idra) that the obvious answer to 5 gate/4gate is build a fuckton of spine crawlers because rallying roaches from your main against sentries is retarded
i now look smart in front of my friends for saying this shit for months
