StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty

Roach/Hydra goes well against Stalkers and all gate units. Roaches are pretty on par with stalkers so you can just have a some zergling support and you're good if you have even numbers of roaches and stalkers duking it out.

what roach/hydra ratio do you roll with? i always seem to have too much of 1 and too little of the other. Then when i bring out the mutas and dont do enough eco damage its pretty much GG.

 

Oh, and if the templars are on the field its GG for me no matter what haha, i fail at infestors

Don''t worry about infestor play.

 

I usually have like 60% Roach 40% Hydra. If you go muta after Roach Hydra, that would make your minerals go haywire. Just stick with roach and hydra and fuck off their base. When you go raoch/hydra, just simply overthrow their army and finish their base. If you can get the order right. You don't have to do no harassing on their main if you can scout and plan ahead.

 

For DT. Just get an observer. Usually you would want to get one pretty fast. Not sure what supply though. 20-30? After then DTs will be redundant.

The old 7 roach rush, good times with that one

Does that still work? I'm sorry I haven't play in a while for god knows how many patches.

it does work but it doesnt GG very often, its good if you expand off the back of it and try to contain. these days attacking a tad earlier with 5 seems to be better

 

But nothing really works awesome anymore if they scout well enough

 

are you gonna get back into it when the they release the expansion ? i cant wait to play through a zerg campaign

Zerg is my main race so i am looking forward to the expansion but I have no idea when I'll get a chance to play it with the circumstances I have these days.

 

I'm not even sure when it's released.

I just started playing again actually (As Zerg). I qualified for Gold, got demoted to silver and now have smashed my way up into gold again with a win ratio of over 70%. It took me a while to get back into the game, but damn i'm playing well now. I think i'll be able to hit platinum soon if i keep playing a few games a night.

 

I had a great game against a Zerg that was in Masters league yesterday, i didn't do too badly actually for a guy just coming up from Silver lol. He just out macroed me, but it was a damn good fight.

All very welcoming features.

 

I can't wait to be able to watch replays with friends. Great fun and teaching to be had with it.

Im in full swing of getting back into sc2 now, i been practising fast expanding and a 29 drone all in vs protoss computer ai on very hard (difference between very hard and insane difficulty is on insane the computer gets "Cheat" minerals). took me 5 goes to beat the computer Ai but once you do it once its easy

 

I think i finaly found a way to stand a chance, i won 10 out of 14 games today verse players, still dont know how to stop the protoss forge/cannon fast expand tho

If you like to all in you can banelings bust protoss FFE at around 6:30 game time (without an expansion) or slightly later with an early expansion. The only requirement is that he has a canon or a pylon as part of his wall and he doesn't have a sentry ready to FF.

 

Here are 2 recent replays of me (LoGic) (From a few days ago) to show you what i mean.

You shouldn't be sending wave after wave. If the first one doesn't damage him enough that a 2nd wave won't kill him you should just save what units you have and macro up.

 

Here is one of my better games against a platinum protoss. He gets a nice big stalker ball, but i manage to pull off a win :).

But everything is easier said than done, i know that :).

I made a lot of mistakes that game, but that guy was Platinum and i'd just been promoted from Silver so it was good to kick his arse seeing as he was favoured.

 

Upload some replays if you want some tips. http://replayfu.com is a good place for that.

Getting banelings in a protoss build could potentially slow down your income and army early game given the fact you're getting gas pretty early. More banelings means less roaches which is kinda risky. The roach speed upgrade is essential.

 

The most satisfying thing you can do is wait until you know your enemy's protoss army is moving out and turn all your saved larvae into an army of roaches and zerglings in order to counter your oppponent while still farming a big resource advantage since you haven't built much of an army beforehand and was mining through and through. It needs practice but againt protoss bronze, silvers and occasional golds it works very well.

The protoss in the replays i've linked above were either Platinum or Gold and my banelings busts took them out. The reason it works is because they don't expect it. They see me trying to take my natural (which they try to block with pylons or cannons) so they FFE expecting me to just pump drones seeing as they are already ahead by a couple of minutes. Instead i get ling speed and banelings and win - But if you watch the replays you will see i've kept an eye on his wall at all times, so i know if it's possible to get in or not.

 

It all comes down to how the game is getting played out. An enemy can't build an army and an economy at the same time.

Sc2 really isn't a game you can play when your not 100% focussed. I was No. 4 Gold and i've been beating lots of platinum players lately so me MMR has gone up. Anyhow today i decided to play a few games to get over 500 points. I ended up getting placed against 6 opponents who were favoured and were in platinum. I lost them all.

 

Then i tried to get some wins back and i just wasn't playing properly. I lost so many games that i was getting opponents in Silver.

 

Obviously i'd lost interest after losing the first 6 games, but i kept playing and didn't win a single game. Lesson learned i think!

That's one strong truth about the game.

 

So many times I can relate to it.
