The greatest BO5 comeback ever
Losing the first two games to the rising Protoss star Pusan, Boxer decided to do a proxy double barracks opening
in the 3rd game right in the middle of the map Ride of the Valkyries, but was
spotted right away. At such a huge disadvantage, almost no one could see any slightest chance
for the Emperor to make it. However Boxer somehow managed to defend all the attacks and about one
hour later he claimed it the greatest BO5 comeback in the history of Starleagues.
VOD & Subtitles...
It is the forth game of the Finals on Neo Forte and Boxer is being led 2 to 1 by Anytime.
Boxer begins to build a hidden factory at the far right edge of the map, as five dragoons
advance and hold his choke at 7 o'clock. As soon as the vultures' upgrades
are completed, Boxer sends three vultures and plants mines evenly along the path
of 7 to 11 o'clock. Boxer then sends five tanks, four marines and three SCVs to
attack the five dragoons that are holding his choke. As the dragoons are forced to
back up towards their 11 o'clock home base, they fall straight into Boxer's mine-trap,
instantly melting. This Boxeresque move has earned Boxer a spot in
2005 Pimpest Plays
Full match report...
With only a group of marines and medics, Boxer easily killed 3 lurkers at the ramp
to get into YellOw's base and managed to stay there like forever.
SCV rush against YellOw
Among countless SCV rushes Boxer has done in his career, this is undisputedly one of the most famous.
Perfectly timed and executed, the way Boxer did it makes TvZ look so easy. The rush has been selected as one of the
top 10 Pimpest Plays in 2003 by SCLegacy.com.
Ghost's lockdown power
This game is considered by many to be one of the very best TvT,
if not overall, replay ever. The game is very long, but the play in question
occurs at 22:30 at 12 main. Boxer's opponent has seven battlecruisers, while Boxer
has eleven wraiths ...and seven ghosts. Boxer drops off the ghosts on the edge
and proceeds to lockdown all seven battlecruisers in the span of one second.
He then cleans up the helpless battlecruisers with his wraiths. Boxer's losses:
one or two ghosts. Chunsang's losses: 2800 minerals and 2100 gas within twenty
Consider how hard it is to differentiate and
click on each battlecruiser within a second.
Not just being seleteted as one of the top Pimpest Plays 2002
this move will be remembered by every Starcraft player in the world forever.
Boxer's brilliant base move
"..Boxer's original plan is to proxy rax at the center of map, which he does from the
very beginning. Yellow sends out a drone, first scouting to see if Boxer is at 2.
Seeing that he isn't, Yell0w sends his Drone towards 11, where Boxer's base is of
course. Moments later, Boxer, in a spontaneous moment of pure genius (or craziness
depending on how you look at it), lifts his command center (the only structure in
his base, the barracks being at the center) and floats it toward his mineral only
expansion. He sends all of his SCVs there to anticipate the landing. That very
moment, Yellow's Drone enters Boxer's former base, stops, and turns around. "
As the name implies, this is a nuke rush,
but it is not so much the strategy itself that is so amazing, it is the
perfect execution of the strategy on Boxer's part.
You can tell that Boxer has the plan in mind from
the beginning of the game from his lack of a comsat. He wants to hide his
plan of course, so he lifts his ebay and hovers it over the nuke silo as it
starts to build because he knows there is an observer nearby. The first nuking
starts at 11:00 at 6 main. Boxer drops a couple of accompanying infantry/metal
to keep the enemy busy while his ghost cloaks and aims the nuke at the nexus.
Boxer then EMPs the nexus and goes the extra step by getting a medic and blinding
a nearby observer. This is all executed perfectly. Boxer does this one more time
at his opponent expansion at 12:15 at 3 main and once again his performance is
flawless. GG in the aftermath of two well placed nukes.
This famous game is one of the top Pimpest Plays 2002,
selected by SCLegacy.com.
Multi-barrack float rush
..Boxer (at 6) scouts and discovers his Zerg opponent right next door at 9. He builds
one barracks in the middle of his base without walling, and erects three
additional barracks along the cliff near 9. He then floats the four completed
barracks over to 9 main where he builds four firebats and goes on to pump additional
marines and medics, following up with a complete raping of the main base at 9. GG.
This incredibly daring and creative strategy is one of the top Pimpest Plays 2002,
selected by SCLegacy.com.
Tanks & m'n'm perfectly timed push against ForU
Boxer once again showed his godly micro and timing.
Out of the blue his tanks and rines army broke through ForU's containment and steamrolled the Protoss
straight to its base.
As the Emperor's tanks wreaked havoc the poor bewildered Toss, Ongamenet's commentators couldn't say anything else but keep screaming "boom boom boom boom".
In a famous 2001 game between Boxer and IntoTheRain, Boxer used an incredible
strategy that had many people shaking their heads in awe. After this, Boxer did
it again after that versus Grrrr... in the Gembc Race Masters series. Most
recently, Boxer did it one more time against didi in a WCG warmup game. The game
was fairly long, but this is what happened. didi in a final plan goes mass
carriers and starts razing Boxer's bases to nothing. Seeing this, Boxer starts
pumping an unexpected unit: medic. didi's fleet of destruction consists of
eighteen Carriers and six observers. As this force passes through his base,
Boxer ingeniously drops seven medics behind where the fleet had been. The medics
catch up to the fleet and one by one each tags a different observer with an
optical flare, blinding them all. Then Boxer comes in with his own fleet of
cloaked wraiths and starts cleaning up the helpless carriers!
This Boxer-branded strategy is one of the top Pimpest Plays 2002,
