[QUOTE=RichardCQ;34713631]Is that when a toss puts 3 pylons outside of his ramp to prevent a fast expand or something?[/QUOTE] Yes, it's not the hardest thing to stop, against zerg it can put them really far behind because they have to expand quickly
Some zergs seem to think 3 pylon block = instant lose, but that's not always the case, really. It just puts you behind.
The thing is if you went fast pool then this is an insta lose for the protoss since they wasted 300 or more minerals in just trying to block you off with pylons
You can just stay on 1 base and outright win with Nydused Hydras if he expanded.
Haha some protoss cannon rushed me and I thought I was fucked but I kept playing anyway. He built about 5 cannons around my main but suspiciously not blocking my ramp and I got some lings out to destroy a pylon at my natural before cannons got placed there and I expanded to my natural and built a spire. So now he has 3 pylons and 5 useless cannons sitting in my main which can't hit shit. I keep playing on and the guy is playing REALLY defensive, he has cannons literally everywhere in his base so my tech to mutalisk was pretty useless since he's now pumping out void rays as well. I tech to infestors and corruptors and expand in the mean time. Many long minutes later and I have expanded to 5 bases and he's sitting on 3 with the 3rd being harassed by infestors, I actually manage to crack some of his turtle on the 3rd and wipe out a lot of his void rays with infested terrans and clean up with corruptors. By now I have a brood lord and corruptor army and I'm fucking EVERYTHING up and basically ends in a bse race which I win because I'm floating 8k minerals and 4k gas so I just use leftover drones from my destroyed bases to spam hatcheries whicle I clean up his revealed buildings. I wanted to BM him so hard after the match
I've never lost in a cannon rush and I hope to stay that way. Well, I guess failed cannon rush, but I wasn't so far behind and won. so I've cannoned rushed at least 5~10 times in league
Cannon rushes aren't a big problem for you as much as zerg though because zerg have to expand and can't just 1 base a game unless they're cheesing
Not to mention you can't build on creep, the worst a cannon rush can do is keep you contained for a bit. [editline]15th February 2012[/editline] Maybe deny an expansion too.
Dragon is so amazing. Gotdamn. he beat NesTea (even though nestea 6 pool'd :v: ) he beat ST Bomber straight up. beat Destiny consistently beats Tarson, adel, and so many korean gm's it hurts. Plus, guy plays all 3 races on master league in korea, how insane is that? I hope he gets into a big foreign team, like Empire or Liquid

[editline]10th February 2012[/editline] Oh my god the next season is going to be awesome, Xel Naga Caverns is FINALLY going to be removed (and Arid Plateau but I don't consider that a real map), and we are getting Cloud Kingdom, and Korhal Compound!

A lot of people worship Destiny as like the best zerg player ever but he's far from it. He's definitely the most creative and entertaining zerg player but nowhere near the best, if you watch his videos his micro is often sloppy but his macro is top notch
Who the hell worships Destiny? Worship a real Zerg hero like DRG or Nestea. :v:

He used mass infestor instead of mutas, and that's pretty much it. TLO is much more experimental with zerg than he ever was.
[QUOTE=Amsay;34717994]Who said he's the most creative? He used mass infestor instead of mutas, and that's pretty much it. TLO is much more experimental with zerg than he ever was.[/QUOTE] This. People only worships Destiny because he used to be really entertaining to watch. These days he's always like "lol sc2 sux" "imma play LoL instead" and not being as entertaining as he used to be. These days he gets like 2.5k viewers, where he used to get like 4k.
Now hes losing a lot because Infestors are crappier. :v:
IMO Destiny relied on Infestors too much to win. [editline]15th February 2012[/editline] After the nerf he stopped playing SC2 most of the time and moved to LoL, which sucks because I like watching him play SC2, not LoL.
Oh man I remember when I was Zerg and just massed Infestors against Protoss... Those were the days.
I remember when I lost my entire army to chain fungals. Those days were great.
Destiny has lost a lot of popularity recently, mostly from moving to own3d from Twitch, and getting into that lawsuit because of Nujabes' music so now his stream is really quiet. Didn't he also have to stop being so BM because it gave own3d a bad image or something? Because now he can go a whole hour without saying a word. It's kind of sad to see how much he has changed.
We still got dragon :dance:
His loss. He can easily go back to JTV and get more viewers because he can be BM, but if he doesn't want to ok, it's his loss of revenue, not mine. [editline]15th February 2012[/editline] + he sucks anyways dragon is better
I just jizzed my pants, leagued up in SC2. THANK YOU DAY[9]
Grats bro, what league are you in now?

Started the game 3 weeks ago, finished season 5 in bronze 4th and now I'm silver 7th increasing eZ
Been playing a lot more this month, I didn't realize how much improvement was made until I looked at replays from a month ago. I am being far more aggressive, moving my army around the map more, doing drops, hiding pylons around the map, spreading pylons around the base for vision, expanding more, scouting all the time. (Hell even my micro and forcefields feel better) Overall it just feels amazing :v: I will join you FP members in Masters shortly! If only I could ladder on NA, I am held back by the stupid glitch where I can't download the new maps on NA but I can on EU for some reason.
How do you counter mass carrier/void/mothership as zerg?
