    Now you guys know why sensor towers are always an afterthought, assuming they are given a thought in the first place.


    They are pretty legit in TvT especially playing Mech.

    That's because once you're good enough to counter terran strats they literally have nothing else, and they're the hardest race to win by macro games

    That's because all the macro mechanics for terran are all horrible for late game purposes.

    While Zerg and Protoss macro mechanics are especially useful in the late game.

    I think Starcraft 2 has made me retarded. Somebody told me they won gold in something today, and I automatically asked who won Platinum and Diamond. I then went to go mentally shoot myself.

    I've almost used the words gosu and micro in real conversations too many times. It's frustrating.

    Do people really lose all their skill after not playing for a while?
    After I first bought and started playing starcraft in season two and ended up rank 3 diamond, I didn't play for 3-4 seasons.
    After I came back though, I was still high diamond level and made masters after a bit.

    I don't lose all of my skill, just most of it. The good thing is that it's a lot easier to get back to where I was. because I already know what I have to do to get better.

    People learn and retain things differently. What you can't forget, others can.

    The best example is forgetting how to ride a bike, which is entirely possible, despite the adage.

    That's not too long. I was high diamond before there was a masters league. Played for a little bit recently and my mechanics are off and I definitely don't have a feeling for the timings anymore.

    Oh man. Played a 4v4 and everyone's like, "so what's the plan guys? I'm gonna go ling/muta."
    I told them my devilishly cunning plan, "Gonna do a triple FE/carrier rush guys".
    "Wtf that's not even a strat"
    "Yeah it is man, fuckin' 100% winrate guaranteed."

    Admittedly I had to build a fuckton of cannons for defence while I got my fleet beacon up, but it worked guys! It actually worked!
    (That and the game was pretty much wrapping up before I got my first unit out anyway which kinda sucked)

    Just had a PvT game as protoss, the terran was hammering me the whole game til I got a warp prism right into their base and blink'd my stalkers in, done some damage and scared the shit outta him and saw he had an entire ball of marines and medivacs. Couldn't take em all down so left my immortal in the base to distract em and got everything away as well as my prism.

    Obvious course of action against a terran marine deathball?

    High Templars man, all dem storms all of the time

    He stim'd, I dropped a ton of storms on him and he immediately surrendered, without a GG, quite offended by that.

    Ghosts if you're Terran.
    Feedback if you're Protoss
    "GG" -> Surrender if you're Zerg.
