Not saying that a cold soda is horrible, mostly saying that you should drink it in moderation otherwise you can get really sick if you drink it on a daily basis and I'm sure you would rather not end up in the hospital

Nice work, haven't seen it yet, but, make sure to space dts if you attack their base so that one scan doesn't cause all your dts to be killed with their MMM. Also, adding them with your army will increase dps and opponent is less likely to scan for them since they are too busy with the engagement, although, once they find out you are using them, then they'll likely scan or use ravens in the next encounter

lol, kinda surprised that you guys(P) haven't ever wanted to use mass recall to attack a turtling terran, it would be really awesome, because, next thing he knows, he has 30+stalkers in his base, lol

Edit: I do think you left yourself open to an early roach bust. That's become my standard play when I see P players quickly build multiple gateways without a wall-off. It works really well. If P invests in a fast expo that's even better. Zerg can easily pump wave after wave of roaches off one base fast enough to overwhelm 4 warp gates. If I had seen your gateways and your expo I guarantee you I would have rammed roaches down your throat until one of us was dead.

Edit: Just watched a little more closely. You didn't even start your 2nd gateway until the 7 minute mark and the only combat units you had at that point were 3 zealots and 3 stalkers. And no wall-off and no cannons. A roach bust would have steamrollered you. I ALWAYS send roaches when the P base is that weakly defended in the early going.
This is what I'm talking about. You should ALWAYS wall up against Z because if you don't, it'll be very easy for them to slip 30 slings into your base to take out your probes, then while you rebuild your macro, they'll be sending waves of units until all your army is gone and its GG.

Interesting, so the storm has a diameter of 3 and ht's range is 9(6 from the outer edge)

You'd have to drink quite a lot of Soda to get Diabetes or something. Not saying its good for you but I have never put a drop of alcohol or any other major drug in my body so I figure a little soda won't hurt .

but whatever not THAT big of an issue so I thought "whatever he's playing against a zerg, lemme make a sandwhich, its just gonna be a macro game"

come back and I see Ret doing an all-in Roach push @ HuK's nat. to get the win

day9 and jp going crazy. day9, "And for the first time ever, WE WILL NOT SEE HuK in the upper bracket finalssssssss. THIS IS AN INSANE TOURNAMENT. this is only the 4th round!!"

which i agree. so many big names going head to head in the early rounds.

lol, all-in Roach Push is pretty strong as it and expanding on steppes as P early on is a bad idea, especially due to the short distances and since you are sacrificing units to make your nexus, bad timing really

Do you have a link to the replay? I've become a real devotee of timing roach busts against P. I thought I had figured out something original, or at least semi-original. I've never seen it in a pro game, but I would like to.

Check out the zerg forums. 7RR, 5RR and recently 3RR are very popular and fast roach attacks and they've been talked about a lot

Really funny how the best 4 players(Huk, select, idra, kiwikaki) are all now in the losers bracket and that last game by TLO was great with how he was spreading creep as well as the timing for that spore and how he took that exp far from his base. Maybe it's where I should've tried expanding on that map when I used to get it.

Impressive micro by Select, I think Idra took a little too many risks, he would've went for the marines instead of that tech lab. My opinion of course or at least take down the reactors, since it was those reactors that were helping with pumping out marines
