    I used to be a widow mine supporter, but god damn are they OP vs zerg. They allow a terran to turtle up and use the speedvacs to be aggressive. When a 200/200 army of Roach/hydra/ultra vanished from one hit of widow mines, there is something wrong. They seriously need to take up more supply room.

    They are useless against protoss or terran. Too many detection options and long range options. Zerg has only one visible detector that is easy to snipe.

    they're tough vs zerg, but they also cant hit a lot of things. the problem is that a large zerg bioball can rush in, get slapped, and then terran can just move them up. with vikings to cover for overseer, zerg simply cant see them without getting destroyed (vs terrans using scan, and toss using obs)

    Fun isn't it? Two nights ago I had an epic 1v1. It was a 40 minute back and forth between my protoss and his zerg. He would make headway, then have to retreat and I would do the same. I finally shut down his ultra/roach/hydra with chargelot, colossus, stalker, and void ray.

    So just won a 4v4 where something fishy happened at the end, my whole team was forcibly disconnected and it is now registering as a loss in our match history. Sent in a ticket to blizzard about it because I have the screenshot of the main victory screen as well as a replay showing my team as victorious. Any thoughts on whether this is a server issue or something done by the other team? Battle.net has been working fine so I don't believe it would be a server problem that only affected my match.

    By far atm my worst match up is TvP. So I always get super giddy when I win vs toss.

    actually i moved to an area where theres only two wifi connections - ones secured beyond my means to crack, and the other gets turned off at least 12 hours a day.


    i got a steal on some 3G dongles w/ 1GB data packs that work funtastic for gaming, but they're not much use for youtube.

    me, JC and deathmore have been playing an arcade map called warships.


    its freaking hilarious when the three of us go the same ship and coordinate, we can do some crazy OP stuff (like literally winning from our home base)

    Yeah, it's dirty as hell. Taking a starbase down to 1/4 health from an entire map away is just not fair.

    in the last game we played today, someone finally found a counter - although it required parking their ship on top of it with anti missile (which meant we knocked one of them out of combat)

    Yeah and I wonder how many hours I have in that game. Mussels and I have played pretty much every night since early 2011. Average it out at 2 hours a night.... A whole damned lot of SC2.
