post #16111 of 25319
I usually follow a build order until around 21 food, depending on what build it is/what matchup. My longest one I have memorized stops at 44 food, but I usually don't play it all the way till the end, something happens that requires me to change it, or the game ends (it's a rush build).

And congrats I'm hoping to be plat in the next 2 weeks as well.

I have my opening, but I change based on what race i'm playing and what map i'm on and whats happening

GENERAL OPEN:

9 Pylon
13 Gate (sometimes 12)
14 Gas
15 pylon (or 16)
16 or 17 cybernetics (based on when gate finishes)
16 zealot
18 gas #2 if I'm going gas heavy build

Then I add gates/robos/starports as situation calls for

Even to 21 food is too long for me I usually just go either 2 rax if against Zerg or add an extra rax with every SCV up to a max of 3 if I'm planning to FE and want to block my entrance to prevent bane busts. I think my Terran standard is 10 depot, 12 rax, 13 refinery then OC @ 16 with a marine at the same time(should be around 200 minerals if done right as I recall) then I just add more rax/fact/starport, etc.... from there

Thanks, just keep working at it, it'll come. Once you start facing plats nonstop, it means your MMR has reached the plat league and you just need to maintain 50/50 win rate. Personally, I recommend as high as possible but meh

DAMN, I forgot to write that sorry.

It's just some advice. And I'm also in a bronze division where the #1 player has 881 points... yeah I know. I am also on a 15 game win streak.

yea bro, being in bronze doesn't prove a lot, the system is at its weakest separating real beginners and ppl who just got stuck there.

i was had more than 200 games in bronze, and only like 20 games in silver and i got to gold right after that. players being experienced in bronze are quite capable in beating low gold players.

I believe there are two types of bronze players.

1. Players who know what they are doing (70 APM players)
2. Players who have NO idea of what is going on (26 APM players)

I have roughly 98 apm

Throwing this out there


Happened after a TvsP on Altar where I went MMTV against a stalker+immortal+colossi+VR army. Won that but lost the next engagement due to his large immortal army then I rolled and his hts with marines, because, I had 12+ rax pumping XD I did have to dodge several storms and such but since dps of stalkers is rather horrible, my marines took the damage no sweat. That and I was 3/3 where he was 2/1/0

I also can't wait to get out of bronze. I've been beating high silver players left and right for about 3 days now...

I beat gold and plat players for 2 weeks before I got out of silver and into Gold (top 10 ATM)


They don't get in any hurry when it comes to advancement.


Last night me and my friend won 7/8 matches against plat (and a couple diamonds) 2's teams and we're still in gold

I have roughly 98 apm
i have roughly 40

and i was low plat in NA last season

I like to think of myself as a macro reactive player. My job didnt allow much play time so I studied how i should respond to my opponent's actions/army compositions. i do ok in making decisions and macroing up, but im terrible at handling harasses(even the scout worker harass...) and making units during battle(actually i think ive never done that, not even once )

thats some nice APM you got there man...im sure soon enough you will be in plat, as long as you figure that *something* out

I got straight to gold just by realizing banshees can do wonders when mixed in the army even without cloak.

Bigfan and quad do you guys play team games? I can be as good as plat with protoss/terran in teams. I dont play 1v1s anymore. hook me up with some team games if you guys are interested
