I infact keep headphones on and zone into the game, maybe listen to music and Macro to the beat The song is of course speedcore haha.

For some reason my Macro is scarry good today. I've played 5 ladder matches against zerg and terran (I play terran) and I've won every single match. I usually get 2 rax (then fact on zerg) then expo asap. I've had 3 6pools taken care of with ease and wall offs. 2 of the 6poolers then mass roach. I mass marauder. Screw them. Take the game. I've gone up 30 ranks today. Its been awesome. BUT WHAT DO I DO FOR PROTOSS. Mega nervous.

hmm, I think a marauder stim push with stutterstepping and drops are the way but I've only had moderate luck in Gold

I'd seriously appreciate some tips on unit composition against speedling infestor with or without roaches and broodlords added late game.

I think it's just a matter of having a plan and building things on time. So I'd for example have something like: get robo asap after starting to push with gateway units (~6:45), get obs as soon as robo is done, after obs start 2 more gates (~8:30), drop robo bay after immortal, add 2x forge after starting 1st colossus(~11:00), take 3rd after range is done, etc.

I find it helpful to set myself some benchmarks based on pro replays like: I should have 75 food, 4 gates and a robo at 10 minutes, 100 food and colo started at 11:30, and then practice till I can meet them without even focusing on it.

At least that's theory My biggest problem is that I can't seem to stick to one build and I change my strategies after watching any new game or vod, which is not optimal for improvement. But whenever I focus on one build and have a solid plan I tend to play much better.

High templars + Blink stalker counters them, but u do need to practise ur feedback precision micro. If ur micro backs it up, ht hard counters heavy infestor builds. Going robo tech against infestor isn't too bad, but don't be a moron and walk ur colosi towards the infestors. Colo range and NP range is same.

When opponent gets broodlords, mix some voidrays. FGing voidrays from a zerg's perspective isn't efficient, and if ur at a stage when zerg is killing ur voidrays with infestors alone, ur obviously way behind in economy and should've lost.

Infestor heavy builds in PvZ is far from good in high level and can be countered quite easily. The best PvZers in the world hardly goes infestors in the matchup. It's just noobs who can't scout and adjust that complains about them.

This.

I'm only ranked Gold and play mostly 2v2, but when we have a game plan and focus on that strategy, we both play that much better.

I think that's how the pros train as well, keep doing this one strat vs their training partners who knows what they're going to do already. And vice versa: keep fighting their training partners who's only going one strat in order to learn how to defend against it.

Btw is this the right thread to talk about strategies? I can't access TL.net from work and I kinda don't want to get ripped to pieces by their strategy forum. Seems like it happens to 9/10 strategy threads over there

zt: 10p helion or proxy 4 rax, zzt: double 10p helion or proxy rauder, zztp or zztt: double 10p helion with dts or 4 gate or double 10p and double helion with one banshee.(used to snipe zztp with superior helion numbers)

The best team tactics, Period. Zerg is ridiculously good in team games.
