    Nah, girls can be jerks all the time.

    I've been either remarkably lucky these last few nights or I'm getting back into the swing of SC2. I just got my "5th consecutive win" achievement after two matches tonight that didn't feel especially close. Hopefully that means I'll be moving up to Silver soon... where I'll doubtlessly get my butt kicked over and over again.

    I think I'm starting to get a lot better at understanding my scouting data. For example, I scouted a Stargate in PvP and started massing some extra Stalkers, then later scouted a bunch of Gateways going down and knew it would be a great time to attack. Second game (PvZ) my Observer caught sight of a fast expo with a dozen lings at the bottom of a ramp and 10 Roaches on top. One force field cut the army in 2, and a second one held the Roaches off until I had managed to kill the expo and all its precious Drones.

    I think my next step will be integrating hotkeys, which I barely touch except for Probes, Pylons, and 1-10 for my assigned control groups. I like the idea a few pages back of adding one at a time and forcing myself to use it every time.

    In your defense, it's really hard to macro with Zerg while focusing on your units. The other races have their production buildings hotkeyed and don't need to switch focus to keep up macro, but with Zerg you need to stay on top of spawn larvae. If I were you I'd focus more on macro and just A-move your army. Even if you lose the battle, you should be able to respawn your army almost instantly.

    I literally cannot count the number of times I have been microing a battle and feeling all, as Day[9] would say, Suave and handsome, and then I look up at my mineral count and thing "holy fuck I've got 1k minerals". ANd then I make 7 mutas simultaneously.



    Stupid attention problem.

    I will throw you on the land and hurl you on the open field. I will let all the birds of the air settle on you and all the beasts of the earth gorge themselves on you. I will spread your flesh on the mountains and fill the valleys with your remains. I will drench the land with your flowing blood all the way to the mountains, and the ravines will be filled with your flesh. - Ezekiel 32: 4-6

    Like 70% of my games are TvT. Terran and Randoms who random T. On the plus side, I win most of them. On the other hand, TvT is BORING AS HELL and I can't practice v Z and P and so I do pretty poorly versus them. Anyone wanna help me practice BOs versus those two races?

    Same here McSnuggles, except that I suck at TvT and lose most of my games. In fact I went on tilt yesterday, and lost like 10 games in a row. Most of them TvTs. :(

    Man. An aimbot wouldn't even do that. I would have typed out things like: Aimbot Superh4x 2.1 enabled.

    I don't doubt that there are maphacks out there, but I haven't seen anything yet.

    The chances to get a beta key from just randomly signing up was pretty low. Most of us just preordered the game and got a key.

    Not me, because I'm one of the lucky ones. :smug.gif:

    My games today went in this order
    ZvZ, ZvZ, ZvZ, ZvZ, ZvT, ZvZ, ZvP.

    On the plus side it did help me learn a nice little trick in ZvZ early game.

    Trus did the same thing in some game someone posted a replay of. The guy was using almost nothing but zealot's and Colossus' and Trus builds a spire after forever of seeing this and I'm thinking "Hooray, 6 Muta's and he has this finally!". Then he builds roaches and not 1 muta. I was sad. :(

    Haha glad someone watched it! I was ready to pop stalkers the second he got mutas or corrupters. I was pretty shocked at how effective just zealots and collosus are against zerg ground forces, although Ultras didnt come into the mix.

    Heh, I watched it too and was also thinking "get those mutas up dammit!!!". I sort of half-sped through it though so I guess there was a good reason, like gas economy or that he was already devoted to ground units by upgrades.

    I've played a bunch of TvT recently, it every game has come down to air support. Either the other guy tries to Seige Tank me to death and I banshee/BC his ass (seriously, BCs vs Marines is hilariously one sided), or we both go air and have a white-knuckle harrassment game.

    Also, I tried auto-unburrow for the first time last night, on some Banelings with Roaches just behind. I completely missed a group of marines stim themselves and run up my ramp.. because they dissolved as soon as they reached the top of the cliff. Hilarious. I'm gonna do that every game I can now.
