This is a historical article speculating on the potential for 10 great Quake duel finals that might have been, but ultimately weren't. Despite all the great match-ups we've seen in the series' history, here's a few where a quick rewind and a different finish to a semi-final could have made things interesting in an entirely different way.

7. The real cold war - uNkind vs. socrates (WCG 2002)
