    The inability to close out a won game is something that is absolutely absurd in TvT.

    Its like the polar opposite of PvP, where a tiny lead means the game is basically over.

    that's a pretty weak line up for TL compared to the competition they'll be facing

    but it is fucking bad ass none the less.

    I think the answer is to take air control and use a Banshee or two to pick off Tanks or use Nukes to accomplish the same thing. I never remember to do it though, I always end up getting impatient and just trading over and over again.

    yeah we were wrestling for air control the whole time, me adding upgraded thors is what let me ultimately win.



    I have yet to lose to fast forge pvt with 3 oc. so...... ez........

    awesome, didn't know TLO was in/going to Korea.

    hero/taeja/zenio are high quality players although relying on just 3 is difficult... but then again prime got really far just because of mkp right? I barely remember gstl tbh.

    sick fucking news though, I'm excited I hope they can do well.

    Hero and Taeja are basically going to carry the team on their shoulders. TLO is a good sniper with his unorthodox strategies, Zenio could grab some wins if he decides to play well on that day. Haypro and Jinro are there to pad out the team.

  • DhalphirDhalphir don't you open that trapdoor you're a fool if you dareRegistered User regular
    I think it depends what they do from the fast forge. If they go for an upgrade heavy 2base all-in, it can be hard to hold that off a 3OC, but not impossible, and if they do literally anything else they'd have been better off with a gate expand.

    Especially Jinro.

    Haypro, at least, has had flashes of brilliance this year, taking out Nestea at IPL or MLG, I forget which, whereas Jinro has been consistently mediocre ever since January 2011.

    MKP won them the finals by winning 4 straight, BBoongBBoong and GhostKing got them past round of 4

    GhostKing put in a lot of work in the group stage too

  • DhalphirDhalphir don't you open that trapdoor you're a fool if you dareRegistered User regular
    Vari speaking of FFE PvT, did you know that its possible to hit a +3 armour 7gate timing off a forge fast expand that hits just before 10 mins? I saw a writeup about it on TL the other day.

    I don't want to meet the man who faced that and lived.

    yeah I haven't faced it yet... you still just have so many units.

    6gate +1 or +2 armor I guess would be really really good, just haven't seen it yet against 3OC.

    I think the key to 3OC is to not try to get medivacs until you're mining actively from your third, and to focus on just bulking up huge rax unit count until then.

    I do 5 rax, gas stim, double engi bay w/up, add 2 reactors, then start the fac. I take the third then if it's safe. at some point I go to 7 rax.

    the 3rd and 4th gas I get pretty fast but I couldn't say when specifically.

    I've been trying the 7rax before factory style that Artosis says the BW players have been doing, and its really good too.

    people generally underestimate the cost of actually operating an event, and overestimate the amount of money received from sponsors and advertisers

    ayup

    it got kinda bad when the koreans started to buy into it, in a ton of interviews people (i think fxoboss may have written a blog post about this) said that the koreans thought the big players like huk, idra, stephano were making way more in salary than they actually were

    which i guess is why so many koreans have left for foreign teams recently

    and why some of them still haven't found one T.T

    Sponsors, advertisers, and tickets.

    Except there's no products to sell vidjagame nerds that they don't already aware of, people use Adblock, and refuse to pay for MLG.
