I know, it was a shock but considering I had no clue what he had planned at that gold, maybe it was for the better XD Having said that, I did have another exp taken and there were another 3 more than I could've easily taken(one behind my base, 2 others adjacent to my base(left)), so, I could've taken that had I moved all my drones and destroyed those rocks in the back of my base smile.gif My disconnects are all net related and I experience crazy lag when there are many units on screen even with this 570(might tone down settings to reduce that :/). I should mention though that if we compare our disconnects to our number of games played, might are a much greater value(%) than yours tongue.gif

You know, I'm fine with disconnects, they come and go, but, the game alt-tabbing out RIGHT as I engage my Z opponet is ridiculous. PvsZ on meta, he gets a large hydras force, so, I decide to try hts with storm and made the chargelots+stalker with some sentries. Idea was to storm and try to push back using sentries. Right as the battle is about to start, because, he was on the move, game alt-tabs out, not once but twice, I got back in less than 10sec later, only 4 zealots+3 stalkers left mad.gif

Imagine if you were trying to keep marines alive vs banes when the game alt tabs tongue.gif. Never happened but I would just imagine it being bad.

SP is fun to play, wish the story had more depth to it though. I don't mind happy ending if you can even call it that, but, the more complex, the more interesting the story smile.gif

Man, I wonder if this tilt will ever go away, 0-2 again tonight :/ First game, I get the alt tabbing and can't let any storms off as a result. Second game, TvsT on scrap, I decide to do a hellion drop but my timing was really off, although I did kill some of his units. He eventually tried to attack with MMM and some bc. Made a lot of vikings in anticipation and placed my tanks near a choke between my main and exp, so, he lost all his bcs, backed off and I got his exp on that little island, so, I was optimistic.

Everything from there went downhill. Due to lacking of scouting, I didn't see him massing thors until a bit too late to make more tanks. He ended up getting like 7-8 thors with some MMM so even though I caught him at a choke between our 2 bases(through those 2 rocks), I still needed a couple more units(mostly tanks), so, I lost my main and my 2 exps. Funny enough, I take refuge on that island and nuke his main 3-4 times taking out a lot of depots and some army units before he's finally able to take it out. Total time > 1hr XD

Edit: Look at that, 2222 thumb.gif

I feel your pain tongue.gif

I only got two hours sleep between an annoying cat and Day[9] in my head going "...build a probe, build a pylon... build a probe, build a pylon..."

I should not have watched those clips of him right before bed buttkick.gif

My TvP matchups have become a joke ever since I got decent at 2 rax expanding. It used to be my hardest matchup, its funny how much of a difference a build order can make. Now my hardest matchup is TvZ. I feel your pain DoomDash. Its so hard to keep zerg from expanding and getting map control once he gets his third down or your first big push fails.

It will only become harder. I think Zerg is the most rewarding race for a macro player, and a good macro player is probably in pretty high Diamond. The difference in skill between even a 2300~ Zerg and a 3000 Zerg is like worlds apart.
