Loss - Zerg cheese chobo noob fucking MMR sucks
wow, i played on EU with my starters edition 2v2.
Because I was terran I decided to joke around and mass scv...
I ended up winning.
Is there anything that can beat mass carrier besides lv3 mass marine? I win using this Cheese a lot (and lose to it if I'm not doing it myself)
And I know a conventional timing destroys this build but in a straight up macro vs macro, what can beat 3-3-3 carriers with graviton catapult?
It's ridiculous that SCVs can take more hits than drones or probes, terrans can literally just rush with SCVs
BW SCVs had 60 hp, just like in the beta.
6 armor on the BC vs 8 dmg x 2 per interceptor. So each interceptor does 4 dmg every 3 seconds. So 138 attacks to kill a battlecruiser. 51.25 seconds to kill a battlecruiser.
3 shield and 5 armor on carrier vs 9 dmg from carrier. So 6 dmg vs shield and 4 vs hull. 25 hits for shield and 75 hits for hull. 22.5 seconds to kill a carrier.
These are 1v1 situation. In larger engagement you would have to deal with yamato cannon which takes 3 seconds to charge and outranges carriers.
How many are we talking for mass carrier? Like normal play quantities or 4v4 and you aren't attacked all game quantities?
If a battlecruiser is yamato'ing a carrier can only get off a single volley before getting hit by it. 18 carriers will one-volley a battlecruiser. But against 18 BCs you will get yamote'd enough to be at a massive disadvantage if you don't micro perfect.
BCs will win against carriers in pure armies of just capital ships. With a mother ship it might be different.
Bronze league is the biggest bunch of epic failures ever..
I drone rushed a guy (I'm bronze, I've got nothing to lose lol).. I failed... 6 drones dead.. I had 1.. it took me like 6 minutes just to get back to my starting point of 6 drones 50 minerals.
20 minutes later I won.
Just finished playing against some gold protoss who had one pylon in his main not walling off so I thought he was cheesing, turns out he was walling off with 15 cannons. He was like "now try and attack ^_^" so I did, by putting my lings in overlords and dropping them in his base. Turns out he was turtling and going void ray so I built a bunch of hydralisks and dumped them in his base too, I didn't want to attack his 15 cannons so I just destroyed his nexus and BMed him until he left, in total he built 1 gateway, a forge and a shitload of cannons, and 6 stargates, half of which were destroyed by the ling push, he was basically trying to turtle while he teched to air in a really shitty way. He says he's working on the build.
Ranked bronze in 1v1 down from silver :(
Anyone want to practice with me?
My micro is shit
Also just got BM'd for 20 minutes by some l33t one baser...
He then QQ's because his Mass Void Ray was countered by Mass Muta and Spore Crawlers.......
johnny i pm'd you back >:O
also I won my first game, it was ZvZ, I went Roaches/Hydras, he went lings. Went from rank 83 to 43 :D
also, I still don't know how to keep myself poor.
Went up against Terran this time. Fuck Marines/Marauders. Even with Banelings I couldn't defeat his huge pushes and forces.
First 6pool and I think first ZvZ I've ever faced.
Hope I can break out of Bronze this season. Wish me luck.
As Zerg you should try always have one more base than your opponent
Keep yourself poor by a mix of teching and massing units.
If your base is under attack and you're losing decisively, and you have over a thousand minerals and gas, just imagine how many units you could have with that cash.
I've always been top 25 in Bronze, pretty sure it's because the people I play and beat just missed some huge key thing of the game. I've seen a guy with no tech on his units at the 25 minute mark lol
Played my first 1v1 in like 2 seasons and accidentally off-raced as Protoss.
Thought I was doing unusually well and was wondering what the deal was when I watched the replay and noticed this Zerg player spammed nothing but drones which I assumed would have put him at an economy at least equal to mine. Somehow he managed to select all his drones at his main and tell them to stop for nearly a minute before telling them to mine again.
Can anyone give me a critique on this game? I feel like I played very shitty and really shouldn't have won that. I didn't even think to build immortals.
Imma check it out when I get home
fuck yeah DRG
One thing I noticed is that you didn't actually really do anything. You just sort of chilled until blue finally attacked you after like 20mins.
And yeah as you said you had the robo and totally forgot about immortals, that shit would have pooped on his roach army so hard.
You could actually see where I was considering throwing up the GG until I glanced over to the right most expansions and figured I was in it for the long haul so I might as well try to expand. If I had lost that game and actually watched the replay I probably would have just died of an aneurysm.
I feel that the only real saving grace of that game was my usage of my ramp to funnel in his roaches to die and just general late-game stalker usage (especially considering roaches fucking counter stalkers what drugs was I on man).
Yeah don't be afraid to play aggressively I guess, if he's expanding faster than you then don't wait for him to attack with a higher economy. Also at one stage you weren't harvesting gas, at all.
Have to admit my last PvZ was probably just as miserable though.
Oh btw I really digged the sentry play, that was hot. I think that's what you were really going for most of the game.
Sentries are my absolute favorite unit in the entire game forever and ever and ever. I love how sentries just take complete control of the battle particularly with splitting forces.
You don't have to attack early or anything, it's just that neither of you did anything until 180pop minimum which was just excruciatingly slow.
terran is such a fucking stupid race I got 2 rax expo bunker rushed and fought it off yet he still managed to macro up and win the game, there is no punishment at all for that
Now that we're on the topic of Terrans; there's no terran finalist in the GSL vv
Terran is underpowered. 'Tis a dark time, truly.
next patch: terran units now cost minerals
Got into platinum, now everyone beats me. Well then.
