    i dislike day9 less these days

    but i haven't watched anything with him in a while, so it might come back fresh hatred if i watched him do something

    I still don't understand how people can dislike/hate day9. Not find him interesting or enjoy his stuff, sure, but outright dislike or hate seems really random. I would expect that sort of intensity to be saved for people like Naniwa or destiny.

    or it's hyperbole in which case screw you

    Are you all allergic to on-topic discussion? Do relevant posts cause hives and irritation? I have an EpiPen should the need arise.

    Obviously esports is very pertinent to Starcraft, as are the leagues, players, and so forth. The MUSIC these leagues play is the kind of tertiary relevance that shouldn't be composing a decent chunk of the last two pages.

    @jaziek

    http://drop.sc/256642

    This is an immortal all-in.

    What I want to help you with this replay, to differentiate it from your own replays, is for you to note my scouting, and my mindset.

    @1:29 - I'm thinking that I don't know if its a 6pool yet, so I'm getting ready to shoot a probe down to the nat to build a forge if I think its coming.

    @1:40 - I check my probe and its not a 6pool. sweet. commence more chrono on nexus and get ready to go nexus first @17 supply.

    @3:20 - I know that, given his gasless opening, any allin will either be late or (more likely) not come at all, so I'm going to go pylon before gate because I want more probes.

    @4:00 - I'm going to try to loop my probe around and re-scout his third afterwards, to confirm its existence.

    @4:30 - I can tell the probe isn't going to make it, so I send out another one. You really have to do this, because if he doesn't take the third you immediately have to chrono at least two sentries and make at least one more cannon.

    @5:42 - On this map, Zergs can see your top natural gas for free, so to compensate I get only the third gas at an earlier time. This is something I came up with/decided just in this game, but i think it makes sense.

    @7:35 - losing this stalker was worth it - I confirmed an important piece of info - he hasn't made any spines blindly. This tells me he is going roaches. Any other opener would want spines to defend. I got a drone into the bargain, so not the end of the world.

    @8:30 - I make an obs first because I want to be absolutely sure that he went roaches before I commit to too many sentries and immortals. I can still defend a mutalisk attack if he decides to be sneaky and get them late. I have a forge, I will have +1/+1, and I'll be able to turtle on 2base for a bit while I get storm to counterpush with my immortals + templar as I take a third

    @9:30 - Obs confirms its not mutalisks, he only has 5 gas and his fifth only just finished. Probably infestor followup to his roaches.

    @9:45 - Send out a few of my units to clear the tower, I don't want him to see more than a couple sentries and i definitely don't want him to see my immortals.

    @11:20 - His third is dead. Right now, I can pull back and take my own third to move on with the game. I've done enough damage. He invested a lot in protecting that third and it didn't pay off. This would especially be a good choice if you didn't have much sentry energy left. But, I have plenty of forcefields left and decide to just finish it.

    @12:32 - A noob rages.

    So, there you have it. A bit of a different replay analysis than I normally provide - more focused around my thought process, to give you an idea of what you should be thinking while you're playing this game.

    hopefully nightend can surprise here

    taeja only really seems to lose to aggressive toss though so not optimistic T.T

  • Options
    FrozenzenFrozenzen Registered User regular
    Nightend beating Taeja would be a pretty huge upset. I can't recall him ever playing super brilliantly, which is the least I'd expect of someone beating taeja.

    And on a different note with risk of being somewhat offtopic. Any of you americans here available to have a package shipped to you from amazon? Nothing special, just a few games and stuff of which some are annoying to find, and amazon refuses to ship to sweden. I'll send it to you, and then paypal/other money transfer the costs for you to ship it to me.

    VariableVariable Mouth Congress Stroke Me Lady FameRegistered User regular
    I always forget siege in tvz now. adding tanks pretty late and it messes me up :P

    taeja unreal spotting observers. he looks to be playing fairly safe this game. I wonder if that's a stylistic adjustment or him expecting aggression from a player he probably considers not as good as he is.

    they are both out of the group already though, this is just placement. which really I don't think should matter much considering the next round is also groups.

    Thanks for this.

    I've actually gotten a bit better about sending out another probe if the first one dies, and generally not losing the first probe at all.

    I just need to get better with my macro more than anything else with this build, half the time it fails because I get a couple of probes behind or a late pylon early on, and then that just causes a chain reaction that throws the whole thing off by a minute or so.

    Of all the bizarre choices they've made this beta, this choice is by far the bizzarest.

    Like at a certain point you have to go "Even in a game where a battlecruiser can be taken out by 12 derpheads with rifles, this makes no narrative sense. A bike does not turn into a person."

    That and the healing (can they be double-headled? Like, by an SCV and medivac at the same time?) and the going in the bunker... just what?
