    I have a question.

    Why am I still bronze? I've won maybe 60 games and 10 losses, was ranked number 3.

    Was beating bronze players nonstop.

    Then the placement match sets me up with a bronze player. Bah.

    You're exaggerating a lot, if you have a 6-1 ratio then you'd almost definitely be top of your division and would also almost certainly be promoted. Just keep plugging away and it'll come, trust me :)

    Jaedong, the best zerg in the world, had fucking abysmally bad macro in SC2 when he played in the MLG KeSPA Invitational. Like, silver-level macro.

    There is just a tiny quality difference:





    I could run sc2 if all the models were of the second images quality.

    If any of you were wondering it is not the super high polygon and super high resolution battlecruiser you see in the background of the menu.

    They are getting away with having low quality models on the highest graphics settings because every other strategy game looks like shit in comparison.

    The highest graphics settings could have looked like an overview of a cinematic without impact on performance.

    Ugh. Stop reminding me of how SC2 battlecruisers look so... Stupid.



    Look at that handsome motherfucker. Why can't they look like that :(

    The main problem with SC2 cruisers is their profile is WAYYYY too tall, BCs are long, fairly wide but with a tiny profile.

    huge 30 minute pvp game, all bases taken equally, maxed out armies with motherships, as tense as it could be leading up to the big battle

    opponent forgets to build an observer

    I remember when mech was common and I ran into it all the time in ladder

    I was good at pvt then
    Was generally before the BFH change, which allowed you to actually somewhat deal with zealots. After the change mech became nigh impossible save for one or two builds.

    You still have people advocating bio with a splash of mech for zoning but you rarely see that, since it defeats the core advantage of pure bio - mobility.

    I think mech is viable on certain maps. For example on entombed valley, if you bring siege tanks with your MMM and the protoss took a fast third, if you siege just out of sight with the choke between the third and natural in range of the tanks, you can push into the third, and when the protoss comes to defend he takes massive splash damage from the tanks before the battle even starts

    I like tanks a lot in the midgame because if the Protoss player goes for fast colossus double starport isn't going to come out quickly enough, but you will be able to make several tanks, which kill Colossi pretty damn fast when target fired. They are also great for zoning(as stated), and making aggressive plays. It doesn't really negate mobility either.

    4-5 tanks just helps with a ridiculous amount of situations. And yeah people always make the mistake of thinking that Blue Flame Hellions actually counter Zealots.

    Then he gets 5 Immortals and wrecks you so hard you can't even hope to defend his counter attack since bunkers are terrible against Immortals.

    I noticed that on NA all protosses seem to just turtle on one or two base and get like 5 immortals or colossus and then push. It's really bad o_o

    My brother's lending me his battle.net account, which means I can play SC2. I'm rubbish at it, I can't even beat the A.I with normal difficulty. I'll probably have to look up some videos and whatnot.

    Fun game though, might be buying it later this summer :D

    I beat two masters Protoss players in a tournament only to be knocked out by a random diamond player who got Zerg. I just played so badly I don't know what I was thinking...

    I knew it would be a bad game when I lifted both command centers instead of my barracks for reactor swapping...

    I have been trying this new build mengsk.

    It's called Early queen aggression. you get about 16 queens within 2 minutes of the beginning of the game and then win. Simple build

    terran is so fucking stupid >.> i was playing zerg on a bronze account, im at 5 base hes stuck to 3 , all mined out. he turtles for 30 minutes while im maxed out , i cant attack at all because of his siege line and the vikings - like 16 of them.

    i should have won that game but i didnt have enough anti air and but no after 1 hour of being on 3 base he wins because he isnt attackable and i didnt have enough gas -_- even on 6 gas i didnt have enough >.>

    Brood Lords and I suppose Corruptor / Hydra?
    Drops?

    Take more bases if he's turtling up that hard?

    Thats what I liked about Zerg in bronze lol.. they turtle.. you have like 10 hatch's with queens.. you send 5 waves of max army at them before they get to your door lol

    I'm no expert though so eh, maybe wait for advice from Zombo or someone good

    Brood lords with infestors for fungal on vikings, it's pretty fucking good and it's unlikely any bronze player will be able to hold it. Just babysit infestors so they don't suicide into tank fire :D
