More like whine. Not all the time, but I haven't felt like streaming unless I feel at least mostly confident.

all about the resolution would be my guess

I know my 5850 I game on sheds tears in 4v4s on ultra at 1920x1080 (or maybe that's just the tubing leaking...)

I could really use a help with someone analyzing this game..

http://www.sc2replayed.com/replays/1...rg-metalopolis

I am very unsure what I did wrong, I did okay in macro but my unit composition and micro were (IMO) far better than his and when we had our game-decision engagement he stomped me even though I had hard counters to his army composition, and a almost perfect concave. I was 2-2, I think he was 2-1, or 2-0 on upgrades too. His colossi did near no damage either.

It could be they are experiencing lag from bnet or stream program.

I mean, he must've known that P have the immortal, a unit that is a monster at breaking down defenses+roaches. It was funny because the commentators were calling the attack an execution. All I saw was MC ffing a bit to clean up the roaches then moving into the crawlers and wiping them out almost instantly!
Second match, MC goes 2 gate and machine just keeps throwing lings at him in pairs. What good would that do? I can understand wanting to save the exp but 2 zealots > 2 lings at any time. Better to get that warren faster for faster roaches or at least get more lings then get a surround and exp afterwards but that's just IMO.


Funny thing I found out. That ZvsT game I posted about 2 pages back, looking at the replay, it seems that my T opponent accidentally misclicked and fired at one of his own tanks taking it out. I was wondering why the tank just blew up when my units weren't close enough to it XD
Z33K keeps track of your win/loss record for all of the tournaments you play on the site. If you check out the brackets you can see .

At the beginning I don't like how you pulled 3 drones to try to get the probe. When you get 100 gas for ling speed stop mining gas. You were over 200 gas before your roach warren was done. Your getting your expo really late. Also, your roach warren was really early. I noticed you built it and then didn't build any units. It's better to get it after your natural is up. Once you scout the 4wg then roach warren/ spine.

My job blocked the teamliquid website again... *sigh*

Why can't I study Starcraft 2 strategies and build orders at work
_______

In ZvP when do you start pumping out hydralisks over roaches? They're pretty much useless against colossi and only seems like I put down a hydralisk den if I see mass phoenix/void ray army composition. If no stargate I just keep pumping roaches/zerglings is that viable?

I'm currently only random Silver... haha sad I know *face palm* I need to find more excuses to tell my GF that I need to play more SC2.

Let's start with the big stuff:

- you were out droned the whole game
- you were out based in the majority of the game
- you didn't scout or respond to the four gate properly
- you didn't respond to loosing a base and still out droned, instead you single expanded while producing units instead of drones
- you invested in items and evo chamber but don't use or produce out of it b/c of your poor economy

Small stuff:

- you didn't scout before when the earliest warpgate research was done with sac overlord
- you should have been trying to snipe the pylon and probe
- once you see he is not warping units to kill your lings at his base, you should know he's producing units elsewhere
- you could have ran a few more lings inside his mineral lines
- more creep
- better attacks like sniping his third, or nydus his main as harass
- final engagement was at your natural, cutting your expos and main tech buildings/reinforcements, leaving you no time for reinforcement while he can warp right away

Basically he outplayed you the entire game. There are just fundamentals that wasn't done and because of it he got ahead and then got further ahead. For example, most zergs facing two base protoss would have two evo and start third base at 8-10min mark. Most would then single or double expand when protoss expand to a third. They also built another macro hatch. Their creep around the 8 min mark is around what you have late game. Overall just need to work on the core mechanics.

I won a game got promoted to Silver... then lost a game and demoted back to Bronze... then promoted back to Silver after winning a game lolz.

I'm disappointed in my playing.

I was a D+ Terran player on Iccup for Brood War and now I'm only a silver random player in SC2. I need to mass game, but I don't really have the time nowadays. Should I "GG quit" my girlfriend? I almost beat a platinum level zerg in ZvZ during a ladder match. (I was his placement match) I was winning until I decided to try and finish his main and ran into a 1000 spine crawlers like a tard. I also lost another ZvZ that I was winning by not building a hydralisk den and losing mutas one by one to his 1 base gigantic stack of mutas. I had like 10 expos and lost all of them because I didn't have spore crawlers or any hydralisks in time. Just a small amount of mutas and a destroyed spire. FAIL
________
PS: Lolz anyone ever played any Grand Master league players? I lost a ladder match to a guy that is currently Rank 1 in his Master League bracket. I think he has the potential to grab one of the top 200 NA grandmaster slots. I don't remember his character code, but his name is Iloveoov (obviously a fan of the Korean retired Terran player)

I was his placement match opponent. I've been tracking him down since he destroyed me in our match.
