starcraft 2

Post  narky on Wed Sep 01, 2010 11:26 am

ive been playing 2s with this guy on my frisbee team and we are currently 3-0.
also i need to watch the day 9 videos and finish this long game that will sent me.

andy seems to be the closest of us to diamond. good luck ramsus

1-0 in my placement matches.

my frisbee team is also going to challenge florida. 4 diamonds and one is rank 1, i think we got it.


p.s. i feel like i should play terran because its more noob friendly. but fuck terran because the protoss and zerg units are way cooler.

Zerg units are cool, but they're way bad at almost everything. I feel like their units are too specialized and phoenix rush from Protoss just destroys your observers.

Protoss is fun because their special allows you to pump out units super quickly.

Terran is just boring, but Reaper rush is so brutal on some maps. I have the most trouble countering them as Protoss just because I don't know their units.

I would recommend everyone play on random just so you know what everyone's buildings and units do/look like. It'll really help you get the fundamentals down.

I've been assigned to hype this...

Hayden Roche thinks it would be really cool to play qxc, so Markham, tell qxc that CitizenSnips wants a challenge.

I played a bunch of Zerg at first which was fun but I was so bad. Protoss are a lot more friendly so I'm trying to get good with them but still lack a bunch of micro fundamentals.

macro

Post  Ramsus88 on Thu Sep 02, 2010 11:20 am

Macro is the most important thing to learn, regardless of race. Ellis, are you really having trouble with reapers as protoss? Reapers are horrible vs stalkers, just do a basic gate core opening(9 pylon, 12/13 gate, 14 assimilator, 18 core) and get a stalker out, it will rock any reapers they send. I have never lost a game v terran if they go reaper. Reaper rush vs zerg is p strong though, watch morroW vs idra IEM finals to see awesome reaper use

I'm working on diamond but I'm not ready yet, macro skills still aren't natural enough for me yet

Yeah, make sure you save enough energy to chronoboost the stalker out, a quick reaver will come before a stalker. Also I saw a guy do a dirty trick where he used his scouting probe to block the barracks drop because when they need to add a tech lab they have to lift it up and then replace it, so if you can follow it around under it with your probe they cant start building on it which should give you enough time to get out your stalker. Just do this if you see them go early gas.

Also, I played one of markhams friends, but it was before i fixed my computer so it could run SC once i got past one or two bases (it couldnt handle that many units for some stupid reason). He powned me the first game, but the second game I went carriers to counter his stalkers and he moved in with a stalker/sentry/collossi army that freaked my shit out cause he had 4 hallucinated collossi, but as the battle started i got out my mothership for the win. Huge powns. I couldn't watch the battle cause my comp couldnt handle it so i had to see it on replay lol.

Anyways my computer died, but im wiping the harddrive once i get my recovery disks in the mail, it should be better by the end of next week and you and i can play a game andy.

WTF ARE YOU GUYS SAYING TERRAN IS BORING? Have you tried microing with fucking hellions dumbasses, or using siege tanks properly? so much fun. Plus yamamoto cannons are SiCk

I'm down, better be prepared for some 4gate pwnage. I've never used hallucinate before but thinking about it it could be really tight for tech feints. Drop a hallucinated colossus in your army and watch him mass vikings while you get a gigantic stalker army up

awesome pvz korean game

Post  Ramsus88 on Sun Sep 05, 2010 3:00 pm

Toss could've been better but the zerg player was fucking awesome. Seriously awesome nydus networking

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FVbXyZpsUYA
also the commentator isn't good enough to handle this game imo, too much shit going on for him.
Tech counter aren't as important as ppl make them out to be, as long as you're defending and pushing at good times and using the map well and macroing well it doesn't matter if you don't have the perfect counters. I think this game is a p good example of that as the toss player did damn well against units that the commentator thinks he should do badly against. HD is a good play by play commentator but just can't do any strategic analysis or get down to the finer points of the game.

I mean, he just doesn't talk about timings with buildings and units a lot, or looks at good resource management and sometimes misses some small skirmishes that i noticed on the minimap. I just never feel like he informs me of any tactical insights into why one player has the advantage or not. Things like that. He's not bad, just not great. I started watching the Korean tournament and the 2 english casters are just reeally knowledgeable about the game and even the players different playstyles so maybe i'm just spoiled

also, all of the school computers at harvey mudd have starcraft 2 secretly hidden on them so we played in one of their computer labs last night and the game runs like butter even in 4v4s. we went 4-2 in our 4v4s. reaper rushes are the only thing that killed us. they are so fucking good early game with that many players.

It's a point system, I don't know exactly how it works for team games but in 1v1 it's pure points except when it comes to moving in and out of leagues

anybody not using their account much that i could use to practice other races? I tried doing random 2v2 to practice zerg and terran but it's just so different from 1v1 and I just can't handle terran and zerg mid-late game atm so 1v1 plat is out of the question

Lame

Post  Elio on Mon Sep 20, 2010 6:06 pm

If anyone was wondering, MacRae still marine balls. He's gotten super efficient at it and it's easy to repel at the beginning, but he doesn't care because he gets sixty and then stims and wrecks. I lost to it three times but I'm determined to beat it. I didn't use infestors at all or banelings very effectively; I think those are my keys to success.

lol. Macrae needs to diversify his strat

and yea, a good baneling attack would rock his marine ball. Make sure lings are attacking first so they can take some blows for the banes. And you don't need to attack move the banes, just order them to move behind the marine ball
