Felt bored today, waiting to go to a party. Felt the nostalgia from all the other BW battle reports. I decided to pop into iCCup again to feel that rush. First game i find, D/D+ FS. Hop in, see a zerg and pick my protoss.
me top right in yellow
my split was terrible. but expected. i still managed to separate the last probe.
my zerg opponent at the bottom right, with his pretty good split.
he scouts the wrong way luckily for me. however, sadly i dont know shit about forge feing on fighting spirit and leave a hole in my wall...
i saw lings running down his ramp with my probe so i pull 3 probes in prep for a runby...
he runs by anyways. oops. HINT: top right natural... your gateway part isnt a ling-tight wall -.-
luckily he doesnt run past my defenses and kills both cannons while losing all his lings. i lose no probes
the usual stalemate occurs where zerg is building up and protoss is teching. he wastes money on defenses though without even scouting me... (HMM)
my macro is still shit from before, and im floating 2k. preparing to go super gateway mode and try to roll him while taking bases.
when floating 2k minerals, make more gateways... too bad im still floating 2k xD
I try taking my 3rd at the 12oclock but a sneaky ling discovers it and he sends hydras and forces a cancel.
but then he decides to randomly walk his small hydra force into my zealots...
notice the money float xD im supply blocked
i remake my 3rd, still floating money because i didnt realize what 2 fully saturated bases could do for you... plus im still supply blocked xD he tries to take his 4th base but ive had a pylon there the entire game xD
NOPE. Chuck Testa.
i forget to move my troops for a good 30 seconds. he takes this opportunity to send his pure hydra army to snipe my 3rd again...
i hate zerg.
guess who's supply blocked again? :D
but because he used his ENTIRE army to snipe the nexus, i realize his crucial mistake. his army is now trapped on my side of the map and there are only 2 ways to get out. the path to the top left, or down the ramp into the middle of the map. i move my army to about the inside 11 to make sure he doesnt get away without paying a heavy price.
btw look at my minerals xD
SUPRIZE MOTHA FUKA
caught between his tail between his legs, and realizing his costly error, he retreats up the ramp.
zealots are pretty strong against hydras, especially when the zerg doesnt have lurker support
after retreating, i just go back to the middle to intercept his army.
at least his macro is good >< take a look at the minimap to see army positionings. also note that my army is placed so that he cant reinforce his bulk army too.
he tries to go down the same path. but my dt sees his army movements before it dies.
SUPRIZE MOTHA FUKA #2
seeing as how my army has whittled down his force after those two surprise attacks, i just charge up the ramp with upgraded zealots, once again because he has no lurker support with his army.
pure zealot is pretty good vs pure hydra
finally secure my 3rd... but look at the minimap, two giant ass congo lines running straight for it -.-
o my god im fucked.
my army is only half its strength because while moving my army back to the middle, it splits from retarded AI pathing into two groups. the first congo line smashes into small squad of forces. im feeling overwhelmed.
luckily, storms are OP
its a good thing he didnt attack with both forces at once or id be completely screwed. its also a good thing that he doesnt storm dodge or id be dead xD my army has finally met each other, but right as that happens, his second congo line smashes into my right flank.
battle of the bulge, starcraft edition
clutch storms by my templars (2 temps with 6 kills each not pictured) manage to kill the initial frontal assault.
thank god for storms
my right flank, however, is getting raped. but....
when hydras get clumped like this....
*cue screaming fan girls*
i went from a strong 3 control group army to a half beaten up 1 control group army. but while this happens, he sets up his 4th in a sneaky spot...
im really bad at scouting, so this base lives from here on out...
so i keep forgetting to macro and im floating 7k at this point. the fact that he has been macroing his heart out but still not beating me boggles my mind.
dat macro O.o
meanwhile, i take the 12 and top left natural because fuck it when you have 7k, you do w.e. the fuck you want. he attempts to launch a big attack to my top left, but my army positioning has been somehow spot on this game and i easily deflect it.
SUPRIZE MOTHA FUKA #3
sadly, 3 hero zealots (including a 9 kill one decide to suicide into the army)
at this point, he knows he cant beat my army... because he forgot he had 3 evo chambers but only +1 ranged and +1 carapace. remember zergs, dont forget your upgrades... he decides to go for a doom drop.
the doom drop. minus defilers, ultras, lurkers, upgrades, etc xD
i figured i had to do something with my money... so i made a semi-cannon+pylon penis to defend my top left xD
yet still floating 3.5k -.- i should have just built a pylon heart in the middle.
doom drop moves out...
while this is moving out, he launches a small diversion group of some hydras and basically pure lings to the top right...
wait for it....
and this, ladies and gentlemen, is why you never run pure ling into zealots + storm.
while cleaning that up, i notice a blob of blue near the 9oclock. my proxy base blocking pylon scout spies on a doom drop...
pylo the pylon
my army sprints to the top left. but will they be in time...
The Maginot Line - Southeast France, 1941.
zerg gets to the base before me...
the standard "box everything and right click the nexus with crack lings" tactic. will it pay off?
after seeing some zerglings running to the bottom left area of the map, i suspect he's taken this base while dropping. so i send my entire army there.
he tries to set up for a final doom drop, but im pushing my maxed army to his natural to end the game.
too little, too late.
SUPRIZE MOTHA FUKA #4
storms, storms, and yet more storms. btw one temp with 21 kills, that archon has 38 kills.
he types out gg (not shown) and leaves. VICTORY IS MINE!
ugh that took a surprising amount of time to make >< so much screen caping and copy pasting everywhere. hope you guys enjoyed, if you'd like to see more of these, id be happy to keep making them. ofc... when im not too busy xD
Burrowed was a D- user last ssn (explains the poor micro) though this ssn he managed to get D+ (but was 1900 when he played me).
Plz dont bash for my shit tier play xD I'm not that good i should stick to map making
