I went to change my portrait, but my router disconnects from the web every time I try to load the change portrait window, or look at anyone's profile. I'm not sure if it is my router, or battle.net
I am stuck on reaper, even though I want to go to roach ( Well, as I was writing this I was spamming change portrait, and eventually it worked.
Wait, should I stick with ghost even though I'm playing zerg? Oh the decisions...
Anybody know the cause? Although I just got it to work after 8 tries, this is somewhat ridiculous.
ALSO HOLY COW I AM SOOO HAPPY MOLETRAP AND DIGGITY DUAL COMMENTATING NASL THIS IS MY DREAM OH YEAH EVER SINCE SC2 CAME OUT I WANTED THIS TO HAPPEN AND IT HAPPENED THANK YOU NASL YOU MADE MY WEEK
Meh, sort of :D
So today I started bright and early with a couple ladder games. Feeling invigorated, I proceed to get absolutely roflstomped in 3 straight zvzs. Feeling not invigorated I do some summer assignments.
Returning, I get four gated, after forgetting I had cued a game and coming in 45 seconds late.
At this point I finally get a zvt. I die to hellions. I'm so dumb to stack all my drones when transferring them.
I get another zvt. Thank god I said, finally a matchup I understand (although am not comfortable with)
So I get on three base. Drone like mad. Pump lings like mad... He's still on two base.
I get worried, tech to greater spire. I'm skipping infestors, because it looks like he's trying to mass ravens or something. I"m not sure. All I know is I want to get to broods. And then it turns out he's been hiding marines on two base, pushes out against the map. I'm maxed on roach ling muta baneling. I absolutely crush it, and deny his third. I have 2-2 upgrades, and note he only has 1-0. Of pure marine thor o.o
So alright, I say. I've got this in a bag. Creep at all expansions, 75 drones on four bases with a huge bank. And then I get my spire sniped. Oops. And then like a 6*8 marine drop comes into my main. I Clean up but lose my baneling nest, spire, roach warren, and lair. I counterpush, and yet again deny his third. He kills my fourth. I take the gold. I'm down to like 40 drones at ths point. I have a huge bank but think I"mscrewed. He sweeps in with more marines. I barely hold it off with 1-2 roaches and transfuse. I hold off marines with roach ling baneling, and I realize I"m at like 180 food, and I don't have an army...
Wait. I left my army at his third. I have like another 15 roaches, 30 lings, and 15 banelings sitting there. I deny the gold, again. He taps out with the nogg.
he then asks why he didn't win.
I then got on Cambam's stream. Although the stream quality isn't great, he's a great guy, and it's a pretty reasonable level of play. He kindly explains 15 hatch 15 pool zvz. I win a game, I lose because i misread roach infestor as muta, because he got so many spines
I get ling all ined like 3 times, and am like poo. This sucks. I hate zvz. Then some guy tries to 7 pool me and I defend, which made me feel good.
Then I get a protoss who expos behind like 3 sentries and a cannon. I pick off all the sentries, and half his probes. I expand, drone to like 50, and then kill him.
Then a ZvP on Xel'Naga caverns. The guy goes into sharkmode with his three gate expand stuff, and I foolishly overreact. However, I'm able to trade some lings for sentries. After realizing I"ve been juked out I take a third. Then I scout with an overlord he's trying to take a third. At this point I have four bases. I think I have a ton of drones. I think I'm saturated. I think I'm macroing like shit (only true part) I get drop and ovie speed.
I do a 32 ling drop in his base just as he pushes (lucky lucky lucky me) My 2-2 lings rip through his entire infrastructure. But shit, he has 5 colossi, and I haven't even thought about making a spire. I manage to sneak up and flank his army before he gets up ff, but he retreats behind some mroe. He's low on FF, and only stalkers and some colossi remain. I get overzealous and get owned. I think I"m on like 70 drones. I'm on 45. Nonetheless, I pump our 22 roaches, again get overzealous and fail. At this point I know I"m still in it: I am on three bases, and he is on two because I cleared out his entire main o.o
With one less round I get out another bunch of roaches, and flank with lings. Finally some good decision making. I pick off another two colossi. I put out a round of drones. Finally at 56 (I think I"m at as many as I should have) I pump out roach corrupter. I just flank his army from three sides, take down the colossi, attack and win.
I play my second to last game of the night against a protoss who was quite overzealous. He went nexus first on lost temple against speedling expan d. I just put like 20 lings at him, kill both cannons, clean up the probes, and win.
Then he offers to rematch me. This time, yet again, I think I"ve droned really high. He goes for dts, and I luckily say "hey, I ought to have detection"blindly before it came. THe overseer finished right when the dts got to my natural :D
On 3 bases (one of them being a gold) I again think I have 70 drones. I have 50. I just pump 1-1 roaches and win after clearing out his third, and again getting a good flank.
Summary. I suck at drones. Even though I gained some spots in my division, I just don't know how to count drones. I probably ought to start highlighting drones to actually know how many I have, and take some more risks while droning. ALso, I think I ought to start getting my lair out sooner. I keep on forgetting ,and getting it at like 9 minutes or 8 minutes, with like 300 gas from one drone in the bank.
DRONE MOAR and I will be MOAR successful :D
