this appears to be similarly true for demotion, I just went back down to plat, not playing for a couple of weeks screws me over so hard in this game >< lost my placement and then dropped 4 more games in a row to cheese that if i was playing properly I should have easily spotted and crushed :'( meh that what you get for playing like a bronze leaguer in diamond ><

may be time to decide on a race and stick with is random doesn't really help me I guess. torn between P and Z simply so i never ever have to play a tvt again dislike all the mirrors but i find tvt by far the worst seems to be the only MU i cant win largely through just having better macro than them, alternatively I could learn how to micro a bit better

If someone has the time to type /dance during a fight, they deserve to disable your Thor for an extra few seconds imo.

So I was watching gom yesterday and saw thorzain vs yugioh. This thorzain dood is soo good. Today's teammatches he's doing good, but you can just see mistakes in his game that makes him still a while off from top gamers.

His TvP is top-tier IMO. His other match-ups need a little work, but that TvP is so good.

Edit: He does use Ghosts like a boss in TvZ though now that I think about it.

my tvz and tvp are both alright i just macro hard and push out on a 2-3 base timing based on what i scout/scan but tvt I suck so hard at positioning so I end up having to do 1 base fast pushes and lots of all ins, works ok at the level i play but I know that wont last forever and i'd rather not be reliant on a strat that basically consists of I hope my opponent kind of sucks

Is it just me, or since the Starter Editing got out, terran is terribly underpowered? Zerg and Protoss own me on regular basis, and although I'm far from pro, I was never that bad..

The cheese is strong in lower leageus, and the "play one game to get your placement" is utter crap.

Played my placement 1v1 game, guy instantly left the game. Got a score of like 0.01 :I
Bronze league rank 100... yep thanks Blizzard :I
Up to top 8 silver in about 8 games, but MY GOD THE CHEESE.

TvsT isn't really that bad, although I'll admit that ZvsZ can be more fun, PvsP I'm a bit more even about, hate less units in fights I guess it really depends on what you enjoy, macro or micro. Z is obviously the macro race, making 30 drones at once is enjoyable but P is pretty awesome with storms, blink, phoenixes, etc.... and does have more micro than Zerg Terran is still the micro king IMO though

haha, my T was bad and worse than my P/Z but its quickly becoming my best XD I would say my T is probably goldish now at least, since, I can play on even footing with a decent portion of my Z opponents and starting to find P/T games a bit nicer

hmm, they got nerfed a bit but nothing extreme IMO. Late game Terran can still be pretty scary with good positioning but late game P is just T_T Late game Z is pretty powerful as well, infestors+BLs are even worse than the colossi deathball
