[QUOTE=Big Ben;34813776]I'm so fucking bad at this game, I'm 0 and 4 on placement matches. /wrists[/QUOTE] I won none of my placement matches and then lost 15 games after that. Your MMR (hidden MatchMaking Rating) does not start from 0, it starts from an intermediate level so that it's harder for pro players to smurf (instead of just making a new account and starting from 0). One month later (I have played 130 matches now) I am in high silver league believe me you're fine.
[QUOTE=HoliestCow;34817656]So day9 was cancelled yesterday night, does anyone know why? I was deeply upset about it.[/QUOTE] Deeply upset? I never get to watch him live, unless he does a european week :suicide:
I'd recommend getting one aggressive opening to memorize and one standard eco opening depending on if you scout an early aggression on the enemy, and [b]working on your macro[/b] most of all for a while. Once you feel confident with that you can start learning builds how to counter strange uncommon builds like fast banshee, fast tech to mutalisk etc. Right now when you scout you probably don't know what you're looking for but do it anyway, and if you get stomped by a build that you see quite a bit (4GATE FUCK PROTOSS) watch videos on how to counter that build as your race, or watch that replay to see when they're most vulnerable on their build, what gives that build away early on (for 4gate it's 1 gas, lots of energy on the nexus, chronoboost on gateway, early gateway, proxy pylon and later on 3 more gateways). and what that build would be most vulnerable to. But for now look at a standard favourite opening (speedling expand for zerg is something that players will opt for like 80% of the time for example). Forget builds, you need to learn openings and macro and there is no reason to learn strategy if you cannot even manage your larvae injects / chrono boosts. I'm not saying this from a pro player point of view, I only just got to silver after playing for a month, but this is how I learned.
Screw 4gate, all about that 6gate +1 timing.
The more gates a protoss has the gayer he is fact
[QUOTE=Kondor58;34819385]The more gates a protoss has the gayer he is fact[/QUOTE] Mana must be pretty gay with his 43 gates I'd have thought that a proxy 2gate is more gay than a 4gate but I have been proven wrong
[QUOTE=HoliestCow;34817656]So day9 was cancelled yesterday night, does anyone know why? I was deeply upset about it.[/QUOTE] According to his twitter there was a 'scheduling mishap', but you probably already saw that.
[QUOTE=Amsay;34819646]According to his twitter there was a 'scheduling mishap', but you probably already saw that.[/QUOTE] Yeah, I was going to watch day9 last night until cry of fear came out, but nope CoF didnt come out(still isn't out) and Day9 cancelled. Oh well, at least there is tonight.
I can't wait for tvz lategame now that the best patch has been released!!! I guess i better practice mid/lategame mech transitions.

Hahaha I am in the z33k finals again. I beat a master protoss in a bo3 in the semifinals by just 4gating him twice. 4gate takes ~skill~ yo
[QUOTE=Miigga;34821942]Hahaha I am in the z33k finals again. I beat a master protoss in a bo3 in the semifinals by just 4gating him twice. 4gate takes ~skill~ yo[/QUOTE] Is there any way I can spectate?
[QUOTE=iSnubWaitWhat;34822059]Is there any way I can spectate?[/QUOTE] If you're on EU, add me. Brutwarst.838 You can spectate if the opponent is fine with it.
[QUOTE=Miigga;34821942]Hahaha I am in the z33k finals again.[/QUOTE] Good luck!
[b]The z33k EU daily finals (where I am playing) will be streamed by some guy![/b] [url]http://www.twitch.tv/morat1[/url] Games will begin at some point within the following hour I guess He streamed semifinals and then decided not to stream the finals :(
Caster left as soon as he had to cast your game. :suicide: Rawsteel doesn't look so good. Just 6 gate him with a +1 and you will win lol.
[QUOTE=zombojoe;34823362]Caster left as soon as he had to cast your game. :suicide: Rawsteel doesn't look so good. Just 6 gate him with a +1 and you will win lol.[/QUOTE] I hate when casters do that. I wanted to watch Miigga :(
i am 1-1 btw 7gate in game 1 didnt work at all more solid play in game 2 did work, especially because he did some crappy baneling shit
From what I've noticed, Miigga complains about every other race cheesing(or even not cheesing), and now he's cheesing every game in the zeek thing. This seems pretty hypocritical to me.
