I seem to be losing a LOT to protoss as well lately. But I also play protoss.

What I'm saying is that if you lose in a certain matchup, it doesn't mean said race is overpowered, there's probably holes in your game.

I've only EVER been beat by gay proxy 2 gate cannon rush if I do a 15/14. Basically, they use the Z lot to protect cannon while they warp in... However, I've been playing P toss and the death ball, and the only way I win ever. is if I multi prong attack and or base trade.

I don't get why voids have so much life, since toss still have carriers and motherships.
Seems like you're getting canon rushed late. An earlier variation (not sure if this is done at pro levels) is to hide a scouting probe behind the mineral line, out of sight. Make the probe peek in to scout for a hatchery every 10 seconds (hatcheries don't have a long sight range when building) and build a pylon behind the mineral line if a hatch is going up. Then a canon and another pylon to block everything in. Done correctly your canon won't be spotted until it's up. Of course tons of things can go wrong but I've done this successfully many times.

Why should vray health be nerfed simply because carriers/motherships have high HP as well? By this logic marine health should be nerfed - terrans already have ghosts. Roaches also, since hydras are the same size with similar HP.

You should probably update your sig as 2260 Diamond is really low these days lol... well for S1 anyway.

Protoss players NOW are 1000x better / have better builds / are better on big maps than ever before. Protoss is actually terrifying atm.

Experienced Protoss players are scary now because every single one of them has gotten good with forcefield micro and mass sentry is standard play now. Protoss already had a big edge in PvZ in early and late game, and now they own the mid game too because of FF. The game is titled from start to finish.

Can anyone confirm this is his NA account? Evidence to support this being him :

http://twitter.com/#!/artosis

Sounds like he is playing NA, according to moonglade.

CONFIRM?

**EDIT** everyone is telling me its the real one .

DOOM > Artosis ( with new keyboard playing from korea hitting g accidentally ). DAMN IM GOOD .

Either way, it's great you beat him, but, umm what did you get in return?

You lack faith in yourself and are pretty negative. I suggest thinking about positive games and being confident in your abilities to beat said P player

So full of win!

Maybe it was just me, but, yesterday, terran players were out in full force. 5 games all against Terran, 1-4 record. Funny, seems I stand a better chance against Z as P XD

hey doom i think it's the real Artosis. I can tell from the way he assigned his hotkeys and the frequency he checks on his scouting probe.
try to check this out a replay of Artosis vs Nemato http://replayfu.com/r/B7L88r

Just had a crazy 38min game on pits. Took it but let's just say I see much more battlecrusiers now than I did before in my Terran games, wonder if the new speed buff played a role I also find that speedlots with upgrades are pretty good, thinking of starting to use them much more

I've always wondered why they aren't used more. They chew threw a bio army z/t with upgrades like nothing.
