Ive got 2 keys for "7 hours game time or 14 days from activation"
Check your PM's :)
I'M BACK BABY.
I'm honestly so bad at this game. Does anyone have any advice for getting better? I understand it takes time, but any advice would be great. I'm in bronze league and it's shameful.
I always fall behind because of the fucking ping...
There's a really useful video series by a guy called FilterSC, where he takes you from Bronze to Masters league by teaching fundamentals. It starts off nice and simple, and each lesson gives you benchmarks to hit before moving on to the next video. I strongly recommend you watch them. However, they are Terran focused, and I don't know what race you play.
TvT and ZvZ are both dead to me.
So predictable and boring at my level..I know most people hate PvP because its a coin flip or whatever but honestly its the most interesting mirror I play
unrelated my MMR seems to be on the mend I'm ranked mid bronze and getting matched verse top 8 silvers..
Told a guy I was going to DT rush... threw down a pylon in his base for whatever reason.. he just leaves.. :S
nah I take what I said about PvP. Its just as predictable as the other 2.
4gate fail into Stargate or robo into "when behind dark shrine"
If I have another fucking ZvZ with speedling roach into 2base muta I'm going to uninstall.
-snip read it wrong-
Going to Barcelona for 2 weeks, my nerd-on will be lost :( Farewell!
Wow, rank 1 masters is 350 points ahead of me, rank 2 masters.
I'LL NEVER GET RANK 1
Unleash your inner passion.
I am streaming!: www.twitch.tv/sirsoapyy
Come on by<3 Although a fair warning: I feel kinda sick tonight so I might be inconsistent with my play. sorry :\
I cant seem to focus today so I am just going to play raondom on my smurf, so I understand if this pulls you away from watching the stream
Playing Zerg in Broodwar increased my awareness substantially. Now I can deal with more than 1 army at a time and have learned to fear the Reaver.
Its so ridiculously important to have a good angle of attack. Its crazy, just couple AOE units can rape your entire army if you didn't position it correctly. If you do manage to attack in a good position you just own face.
Got a text from a friend saying to meet him in 5 minutes, just as I got into a game.
6pooled... as he tried a cannon rush. I of course won
Sometimes things just work out.
Stephano shall be streaming soon.
So any tips on how to get out of a massive slump, I am tilting really really hard right now, after facing low Masters players and finally feeling really good about my play I am suddenly losing to Platinum players (I lost to a guy who dropped thors in my base...)
Out of 24 games I have won 8.
Just played a game against Terran bio and won, I love ling bling ultra, such a good combo for people who don't split.
TIP for those who need practice / have ladder anxiety: You can join private games of official maps and get an immediate 1v1 partner. Just click "Custom games" and then in the dropdown choose "Open Games" and look at the 1v1 maps that have open lobbies. Gives you the chance to try new builds, face better/worse players, and just improve in general without hurting your league ranking. igamiwarr I feel like you should do a few of those games just to get back into the groove of things without letting your slump take you down.
Besides if I wanted completely carefree games I would just play on my smurf account.
Or tank your 1v1 ranking and then start practicing.
Uninstalling. I'll keep an eye on this thread because its got a nice little community to it.
But just not enjoying it anymore lol. either lose and rage at myself, as is my personality, or win and rage at them for being stupid... going back to FPS for a bit I suppose
You can always just play team games or FFA.
Yeah i've played team in the past. Dont mind 3v3's
I tried to get an FFA online a few times and after waiting for 10 or so minute I just gave up on it :V
Well I just make a ton of marines or generally do silly builds, I never play serious in team games.
Mostly its unbalanced as fuck due to the maps, a lot of them are still from the beta because Blizzard doesn't care.
tbh I've never been skilled enough to even consider maps.. Do they make that big of a difference in higher play?
Really the only map I've ever had any issue with is Entombed Valley because the rocks to the third shit me when playing Zerg, and its just a big derp map. I dunno
I generally enjoy Daybreak games though..
Maps are what really determine balance in this game, Blizzard doesn't understand that so they keep doing balance patches that try to balance the wrong things.
Can anyone tell me how to post a replay? igamiwarr wanted me to post a few to explain why I am so bad against infestor brood lord, but I have no idea how to do so.
My are already used, gave both to friends at a lan party so we could play together. It was pretty funny, we were so bad. During the first ffa we played, one of the free trial guys didn't know he could make more SCVs, I was still in silver so I naturally sucked and the only guy who actually could play (former decent BW player) just made a 200/200 army of voidrays on 2 base and won.
Then we decided we could play some ladder 4v4s, and did the only well-established build we all could at the time. 6pool. It went surprisingly bad, we lost most games. It was still fun though.
Man, I even had an observer floating over his army at one point, and when he got an observer he instantly killed it.
Then again, he also went blink stalker rush and didn't think to get an observer into my base before he attacked. He also didn't focus my only immortal when I was down like ~20 supply in his first attack.
why do all protoss resort to cheese against me? i went for a stim timing attack at around 70 supply, obviously when i attack i get a few kills and oh look a colossus, so i get ready to fight colossus and macro my way up to 4 base get ghosts blablabla, snipe 6 high templar from his army and oh look dark templars that cleave 3 -3 marines and then turn into archons when u scan -_-
