[QUOTE=Kondor58;34826634]wow i was getting 4gated but the guy was turtling like a bitch so I just attacked him and won, he was just about to get immortals out as well [editline]23rd February 2012[/editline] Anyone got any tips for improving other than just "play a lot"[/QUOTE] 4Gate with immortal? To get better, watch streams.
[QUOTE=Gravity Ponds;34828167]Bronze league is the biggest bunch of epic failures ever.. I drone rushed a guy (I'm bronze, I've got nothing to lose lol).. I failed... 6 drones dead.. I had 1.. it took me like 6 minutes just to get back to my starting point of 6 drones 50 minerals. 20 minutes later I won.[/QUOTE] Wouldn't he also be at a major disadvantage? Unless he actually had all of his drones after the engagement, and even if all of his drones survived, I'm sure he pissed his pants and couldn't concentrate that well.
Just finished playing against some gold protoss who had one pylon in his main not walling off so I thought he was cheesing, turns out he was walling off with 15 cannons. He was like "now try and attack ^_^" so I did, by putting my lings in overlords and dropping them in his base. Turns out he was turtling and going void ray so I built a bunch of hydralisks and dumped them in his base too, I didn't want to attack his 15 cannons so I just destroyed his nexus and BMed him until he left, in total he built 1 gateway, a forge and a shitload of cannons, and 6 stargates, half of which were destroyed by the ling push, he was basically trying to turtle while he teched to air in a really shitty way. He says he's working on the build.
Ranked bronze in 1v1 down from silver :( Anyone want to practice with me?

So after my attack is was like 4 / 5 to 1 his way.. idk My micro is shit Also just got BM'd for 20 minutes by some l33t one baser... He then QQ's because his Mass Void Ray was countered by Mass Muta and Spore Crawlers....... lol
[QUOTE=zombojoe;34825133]Cuz EMP is an awful spell that only works when your opponent clumps up 8 full energy HTs. :zoid:[/QUOTE] yeah or when your opponent is a race whose units all have shields good thing that doesn't exist
johnny i pm'd you back >:O also I won my first game, it was ZvZ, I went Roaches/Hydras, he went lings. Went from rank 83 to 43 :D [editline]23rd February 2012[/editline] also, I still don't know how to keep myself poor. [editline]23rd February 2012[/editline] Went up against Terran this time. Fuck Marines/Marauders. Even with Banelings I couldn't defeat his huge pushes and forces. :v:
Got 6pooled Pulled drones Won First 6pool and I think first ZvZ I've ever faced. Hope I can break out of Bronze this season. Wish me luck.

If your base is under attack and you're losing decisively, and you have over a thousand minerals and gas, just imagine how many units you could have with that cash. I've always been top 25 in Bronze, pretty sure it's because the people I play and beat just missed some huge key thing of the game. I've seen a guy with no tech on his units at the 25 minute mark lol
Played my first 1v1 in like 2 seasons and accidentally off-raced as Protoss. Thought I was doing unusually well and was wondering what the deal was when I watched the replay and noticed this Zerg player spammed nothing but drones which I assumed would have put him at an economy at least equal to mine. Somehow he managed to select all his drones at his main and tell them to stop for nearly a minute before telling them to mine again.

Floating 12k mins, that motherfucker had more money than God and he did nothing with it... he just sent this pussy little army in and then left?! One thing I noticed is that you didn't actually really do anything. You just sort of chilled until blue finally attacked you after like 20mins. And yeah as you said you had the robo and totally forgot about immortals, that shit would have pooped on his roach army so hard.

My friend told me he was doing some sort of 3 base before hatch play and I kinda don't want to watch the replay again to find out if that's true. The reason why I was sitting back waiting for him is because I saw he had 3 bases and figured that he was a decent zerg player (because I'm retarded and don't scout) so I wanted to expand as much as possible, get the econ advantage, and then wait for the opportunity to counter attack because I would have had the defending advantage. You know, play the macro game until I was sure my army could shit on him and then transition into molesting his entire fucking base. You could actually see where I was considering throwing up the GG until I glanced over to the right most expansions and figured I was in it for the long haul so I might as well try to expand. If I had lost that game and actually watched the replay I probably would have just died of an aneurysm. [editline]1[/editline] I feel that the only real saving grace of that game was my usage of my ramp to funnel in his roaches to die and just general late-game stalker usage (especially considering roaches fucking counter stalkers what drugs was I on man).
Yeah don't be afraid to play aggressively I guess, if he's expanding faster than you then don't wait for him to attack with a higher economy. Also at one stage you weren't harvesting gas, at all. Have to admit my last PvZ was probably just as miserable though.

Oh btw I really digged the sentry play, that was hot. I think that's what you were really going for most of the game.

My problem with early aggression is that I tend to overcommit and that fucks me over pretty badly, which is why I've been sticking to the macro until counterattack sort of play. That probably is a bad habit and I should stop it.

I love how sentries just take complete control of the battle particularly with splitting forces.
You don't have to attack early or anything, it's just that neither of you did anything until 180pop minimum which was just excruciatingly slow.

terran is such a fucking stupid race I got 2 rax expo bunker rushed and fought it off yet he still managed to macro up and win the game, there is no punishment at all for that
[QUOTE=Kondor58;34834196]terran is such a fucking stupid race I got 2 rax expo bunker rushed and fought it off yet he still managed to macro up and win the game, there is no punishment at all for that[/QUOTE] Terran has to do early damage or else he will loose (unless gsl level shut up). Terrans are playing with a bomb strapped to their face and if they don't win "early" they will loose.
Now that we're on the topic of Terrans; there's no terran finalist in the GSL v:v:v
Terran is underpowered. 'Tis a dark time, truly.
next patch: terran units now cost minerals
-snop-
Got into platinum, now everyone beats me. Well then.
