    Because IdrA and Artosis are just arguing by saying "No you're wrong you haven't done it you can't possibly be right your arguments suck." And then saying that his arguments are invalid because he's not in Korea.

    Basically IdrA is arguing like a douche and Artosis is backing him up.

    It's frustrating to argue against that.

    You're mis-characterizing what IdrA and Artosis have said.

    That aside, Geoff didn't even try to understand their argument. Instead he just started shouting and swearing when they brought up relevant recent matches.

    He's not wrong though. His point was right.

    Nope.

    "If you want some evidence of what we're saying, look at the GuineaPig games. You need infestors to counter his build or mutas are totally non-viable. It happened in the GSL."

    And now they're complaining about Salvage.

    This is why they need a good, regular Terran. Bunker Salvage happens because a Bunker can be completely useless, whereas other defensive structures at least deal damage.

    I think bunker salvage is balanced and understandable, since each race's static defense has some kind of advantage.

    But it feels a bit too strong that it can be salvaged in a few seconds with 10 lings trying to focus it down.

    I wish that the salvage time was like 5 seconds longer so that you can't be totally reckless and get all your money back any ways, but eh, not a big deal.

    I can totally get behind that change. It should be something for, say, getting back the money for the Bunker at your Main ramp when you're on 3 bases, not getting free money when your rush fails.

    He doesn't always 14 hatch, but he claims that if a zerg doesn't 14 hatch (against T) you're going to lose for sure 15 minutes into the game rather than having a high probability of losing it in 5 minutes.

    Wow, I just got raged at big-time. Apparently 3rax with a timing push is a cheese build. Am I wrong in disagreeing?

    repimg-33-171757.jpg

    Chat from after the game (Yeah I was being a bit of a dick, but he sorta asked for it...):
    Straight after the game:

    Revector: seriuolsy you little !@#$in %^&*!

    Revector has reconnected.

    Revector: why you got to be a cheeser?

    You: how is that cheese?

    Revector: is learning to play this game clean to hyard for you

    You: it was just a one base play
    no proxies or anything

    Revector: maurders are the most OP unit in the game right now
    read any forum it's pretty much 100% agreed upon
    you build then and send them in
    you little btich

    You: lol

    Revector: no micro

    You: u mad bro

    Revector: no skill
    !@#$ you
    don't call me bro
    I wouldnt' take back talk from a little !@#$% like you in real life and I sure as ^&*! am not going to do it online

    You: I get beaten by plenty of protoss
    learn to forcefield

    Revector: ya well I guess they expect cheese play
    I was hopin gfor a fun game
    so !@#$ you

    You: <3

    Revector: you little !@#$%
    no skill
    no pride in your game
    pathetic

    You: u hurtin mah feelinz
    QQ

    Revector: ya you should cry
    if I played as badly as you I would

    You: I see victory on my screen
    gg

    Revector: nope...I clearly say...you cheesed and lost on mine

    You: 853 wins and still in gold
    temper is understandable I guess

    Revector: shut your mouth

    You: :D


    And then again a few minutes later:


    Revector: well what do you know same !@#$ as last game

    Revector has reconnected.

    Revector: except this time I was excpeting it and raped the cheeser
    all you losers play the same

    You: see, it's not hard when you try

    Revector: you a loser and you'll always be a loser. Just cuase you learned to exploit at a video game and won a few matches doesn't mean !@#$

    You: see, the funny thing I didn't take any pride in it
    I'm just playing a game
    you're the one getting all serious

    Revector: !@#$ you

    Idra is basically way better than anyone else in the podcast and actually knows to how to argue instead of getting all emotional and butthurt.

    InControl's a funny dude, but I hate him sometimes. He's the type of guy you couldn't actually have a debate with without it getting into a shouting match.

    I will say that IdrA was even more abrasive early in the discussion.

    "Your experiences don't matter at all because your opponents suck." was pretty O_o, even for him.

    I thought that Mutas worked fairly well against Voids. Is that not the case?

    My experience in Phantom says that if you have 250 pop of mutas vs 200 pop of void rays, you're going to have 100 pop of void rays left to worry about once they're done killing your mutas

    I guess, I just thought it was more like "You haven't experienced this build so much yet, because it came out like a week ago and Koreans copy like mad and there aren't a lot of good Zs on NA". As for that last part, what good Zs are there besides like, Machine?
    That's only partially rhetorical, as I haven't really been watching much other than some of the GSLs since summer ended.

    Dunno, probably not the best route to go in an argument but I meant Geoff in general from this podcast and others, just gets all butthurt and mad when he doesn't get the respect he automatically thinks he deserves.

    Hard to explain if you haven't actually met a person like this. Basically, people arguing from emotion are almost always worse than those arguing from logic.

    All attempts to micro apparently make things worse

    Since they upped the VR initial damage they are significantly better as a swarm against lighter units

    Mass corrupters seem capable of beating them, but zerg really could use some kind of AOE unit, really any kind.

    Here's my thought: Baneling catapult

    I did a few tests a while a ago. When corruptors and voids are even (in food), the voids win by a little, but when your corruptors even slightly out number the voids (by food) the voids get crushed.

    So if they're attacking with voids, make sure you do a quick food count before going in. If you have anything more than equal food, go for it, anything less than an advantage, wait it out.

    Ideally you would hit them with corruptors and hydralisks, unless I'm mistaken. Too many hydras means you cant get em all in position but a 50/50 split works well

    This is only for team games, in 1v1 there should be no way voids can beat hydras or even mutas in any realistic scenario
