    Hrm I'd play but I don't have LotV and consistently place in the Discarded Foam Cup League. I would however love to watch, will anyone be streaming some matches?

    I will say that hearing about a new Curvy Star-league Tourny fills me with nostalgic joy. :D

    Protoss went 3-base all-in with adepts

    My army could kill them, but there were so many of them that I couldn't get a good angle, and so they killed drones much faster than they died, and my army could barely keep up

    I guess I needed to mix in speed banes

    No one remembered me :(

    I'll have to pass signing up, unfortunately. That's slightly too close to my wife's due date, and I feel like I'd get in trouble if I ditched her at the hospital to play Starcraft :P. I'll try and observe the games if I have the opportunity though!

    Probably it would help if I looked up any reasonable opening builds, but

    So far I am winning my ladder ZvZs; I'm pretty good at being reactive and aggressive and keeping up my macro during ling/bane wars

    In the other match-ups, I usually die after about 5 minutes to some refined cheese I'm not familiar with

    That's how I'm finding PvT, there's some really awful early cheese builds, but the essentials of PvP and PvZ have remained solid enough that I can almost always carry it to a macro game. PvZ in particular, the few times Zerg have tried to cheese me is like they forgot sentries exist.

    Ravagers can destroy them, which made sentries way less powerful in the matchup. But it seems that a lot of ladder Zergs have forgotten that that only applies if you actually make ravagers. If you dont, sentries are as great as ever.

    Sorry guys, I'd gotten LotV and signed up and everything but to be honest I'm getting married soon and I've just got too much shit to sort out to get back into this game, so I'm withdrawing.

    Will definitely check out the replays when they happen though!

    I made it into a macro game with a protoss and didn't know what to do

    such a rare situation for me -_-

    I guess hydra ling bane is the new hotness?

    To show how out of touch am, I'm going to ask - why don't you really see colossi on the Protoss side anymore?

  • YiliasYilias Registered User regular
    Iirc they got gutted by a nerf. It was something huge like -4 range.

    Their range got cut by one, and their damage by 20%.

    It was pretty savage, but it was mostly to encourage Disruptor play.

    They recently got a 10% attack speed buff, I don't know if that makes up for the damage nerf but I've been using them in both PvZ and PvT to good effect.

    In preparation for the tournament next week, with diligence and practice, I have TRIPLED my APM to a MIGHTY 60+ a minute. Nothing can stop me now!

    Oh man... yeah practice.

    I need to install and see what all the new units do.

    Sadly, I'm overseas naked in a turkish bath right now and won't be home until the 12th.

    Zerg is still just a-move mass roaches, right?

    couple of zergs letting the games get too sloppy. I beat a masters because when things get gross marines will eventually beat ling/muta. and they're spending all their gas on mutas so the bane count is something even I can control against.

    still am terrible against disruptors and have only just today written down some builds to hopefully smooth on the early game, at least in tvz. just basics that I never really ironed out when lotv came out... there are times when even depot/gas timings are off and I just cant' accept that from myself.

    edit - I don't mean missing depots, I of course still do that plenty! :D I mean not dropping an early depot and it throwing things off dramatically.

    I don't really mind cheese but protoss building in my base makes me want to scream. pylon overcharge as offense is enraging.

    only other thing that tilts me like that are terrans that go mass raven in tvt. when I see more than 2 in an opening I just leave. I have no interest in getting good against it and the game itself is the most tedious horse shit that exists in the game oh my god it makes me so fucking mad. top it off with it requiring no ability to control or really do much of anything but sit home and make turrets and LOkerngkldjnfgksdnjfgksnjdfg there's just no getting around it. I have to pretend the given game never happened.

    Isn't mass Ravens the norm now?

    I wouldn't say so, one or two for harass and as part of an air fleet is common, mass raven is just some annoying stuff you see sometimes on ladder.

    i'm only going by chatter ive seen in a few place so it is likely it was just simply people exaggerating about how common it is

    It might be very popular on ladder, I've seen it in something like three out of seven tvts. It's smart, it's hard to beat and it's very easy to make mistakes into it. I don't really know how to beat it and usually tilt or leave pretty much immediately

    How exactly is it supposed to work? I haven't seen it in action yet, and Ravens always seemed to get kind of ignored despite how useful a harass turret and detection could be.

  • VariableVariable Mouth Congress Stroke Me Lady FameRegistered User regular
    Make a lot of Ravens, a few tanks, and basically just don't die. Harass with either Ravens or hellions, make lots of turrets so they can't easily make vikings and snipe your ravens... It basically functions like mech but the core of the army is a shit load of ravens dropping auto turrets and where applicable point defense drones. But unlike mech if you attack over and over trying to wear them down you're more likely just losing your army to energy rather than trading say marine marauder for tanks. That's why I have trouble approaching how to beat it.
