    I hate all mirror matchups, but I hate ZvZ the most, it's so annoying to play, it's always a cheesefest, or people do these rushes.
    late game zvz with infestors is worse
    If I think i can kill them early game I'll go for it, or kill them with mass roaches or something before infestors.
    And forget playing mutas vs mutas.

    Usually if my enemy goes mutas, I've already won, because I make plenty of Infestors, and I'm good at my fungal timings and burrow micro.

    Edited:

    But yeah, lategame ZvZ is so awful, because it comes down to who can land their fungals first/who has the better/more roaches.

    Why am I too much of a bitch to try 1v1 with Zerg/any race for that matter?
    I still have all 5 of my placement matches this season.

    Also when I first got the game (been long time since that) I went Zerg because they were cool n stuff and I remember reading about how awesome banelings were as offensive units. I had no idea when I first played they were little terrorists and thought they did awesome melee damage. I rage quit right after I sent them at destructible rocks.

    I don't think I should play when I'm sick. I can't pay attention and the medicine I took only made it worse.

    Pheonix is the only thing in starcraft that I'm good at microing with
    It's basically the only thing that can be micro'd for protoss.

    Normal game: 50 apm. Went phoenixes: 150 APM.

    Phoenix is just a great unit to fuck with workers and make them deploy anti air at their mineral lines when you plan to just walk up in the front door anyway, making them waste minerals/gas

    Warp prisms have the same effect, except they are essentially free.

    I usually use lots of phoenix.

    Except against Terran, where I make 3, hallucinate a lot and build collossi instead. This usually doesn't work though.

    Season 6 started out ridiculously good for me, I've won all my matches so far, I've even won all my TvZ where I was horrible before. Maybe I'll get to silver someday

    My nazi parents have epic timing in Season 6 (I'm never allowed to play Starcraft 2)
    I lose 4 games in a row (over the course of a week)
    1 - Dad comes up as soon as I find an opponent in matchmaking. I have to alt-tab out.
    2 - Dad comes up as soon as my Nydus explodes in an enemy Protoss' base, who has nothing to fend. I have to alt-tab out before I can even click to send my units out of my nydus.
    3 - Mom needs me to help her with trash (will only take 6 minutes) in the middle of a game, I pause, the guy unpauses and attacks.
    4 - I ten pool. The Protoss didn't wall for some reason. He's slightly favored. I will finally get a win, since I'm ten pooling and he didn't wall. My dad comes up, and he obviously unpauses because I'm all-inning and he's going to lose.

    Goddamn nazi parents. My record right now is 1 win 5 loss for Season 6.

    Just pause the game any decent player will keep it paused for like 5 minutes tops

    I sucked and never won a match for literally a week, 2 weeks later I am high silver, never played an RTS competitively in my life

    I've never seen anyone actually use the pause feature properly, outside of my friends when we're in person.

    The co-sponsor or Starcraft Club uses a "cheat pad" when playing sc2

    It recorded the micros for him... When the game starts, he presses B1 and all the workers get spread out and start mining.

    Terran's Tech build is fucking hard to beat.

    Baneling bust, roach bust, 4gate, 6gate, collosus rush, banshee rush, 2rax or mass marines. (I have no idea what race you play.) When you meet a teching terran you can exploit this by either expanding, teching or attacking because when he is teching he is weak and he wont be able to attack for a while.

    ling/bling/muta is a pretty easy and effective build to pull off against terran which counters a lot of air, mech and bio builds

    Depends on the map. My opener is usually speedling expand +banes or 7-roach rush into expand. Then I'll see if it's best to go mutas or roach.

    You've obviously never tried it then.

    Edited:

    Assuming you're intelligent enough to hold off early rushes with defensive banelings 15 hatch is a very valid opening vZ.
