    You survived with your tank line intact. He would have been screwed over again if he doesn't have broodlords.

    Even then, my teammate had voids/carriers. The terran would have needed vikings and marines. But like I said, they were very new, I could have beaten them both single handedly.

    Anyone think their system and internet can handle streaming? I've been wondering if my setup can handle it, doubt my internetz could handle massive upload streams though.

    Interesting thought though.

    I don't understand the fascination with constantly pressing keys. Don't get me wrong, my APM will spike up over 300 when I am in battle, but I have watched the pros and they just spam the holy shit out of keys, seemingly for no reason at all, even while just sitting idle. My match APM is usually right around 60, with spikes into the 300's.

    Put some crazy glue on that sumbich and have a few shots of whiskey. You'll do just fine.

    It's called uber-micro. That's the difference between the pros and guys who watch replays and streams.

    I guess. Still don't see the point of microing two control groups while nothing is happening. Seriously, I see them spamming from group 1-2 while the damned barracks is building or something. Anyone can do that doesn't take a pro. Now in combat, yeah, I know the point behind it.

    I don't spam my keys much either, my apm pre and post 1.4 are almost the same. Microing dropships, splitting marines, massing marines and all those eats game average of about 100, spiking to mid 200's in normal battles and above 300 in intense ones. Otherwise it idles at about 50 when I only macro. I play an extremely micro heavy style, not to the extent of MarineKing, but still pretty intense, ant this stupid cut on my finger slows me down to an extent banelings roll over my poor marines without even having a chance to split them properly :/

    Well, the idea behind that is to take a quick glance onproduction facilities, but some pros take it to the extreme. They should look after their hands, rather than wasting it away. IdrA's eAPM famously falled to average of 30 against Puma in the recent Guangzhou IEM competition. As a Terran I need mine to average over 100. Zerg is an imbalanced race :(

    season lock now in effect



    Beginning with Season 4, two changes are coming to future ladder seasons:



    • Seasons will now last for approximately two months.

    • Grandmaster league placement time will be reduced to one week (from two weeks) to account for the reduced season length.

    Good, I like shorter seasons, no need to dwell on my failure for longer than necessary. I have been losing to diamond level Protosses lately, while still steamrolling higher ranking Zerg and Terrans. Dont know what is wrong with my vP lately. :/

    Are you serious? I only played in like 10 or 15 season 3 matches. Wow That was fast.
    Guess I gotta stop trying to catch up on all the games in my steam folder and get back to SC2.

    lately i've been getting steamrolled in SCII, and not sure why. my army values just seem to be the suck, despite the fact i tend to rock at econ. i dont see how tech upgrades can do it, since they overall dont cost too much compared to low tech units.


    bleh, i think i need some 1v1 against players who can give me some feedback.

    It's just the production and type of units. Also, too much econ early and not enough units. What killed us last night was the 8 minute rush, that and cheese.

    Good econ generally means your lacking in spending.. Or your spending too much on drones/scv's/probes.. if your not poor then your not macro building enough
