you dont think a 20% damage reduction is a nerf? thats pretty significant if you ask me.

the ultra buff is kind of well meh tbh dont see it increasing thier usefullness they will still only appear uber late game after you force too much anti air with broods.

I've played on Korea, it's a little slow but not that bad. I may getting an account but I'm already masters on NA. I went 3-0 in placements so far on KR.

Well you can still 2Fungal marines, although they can heal through it, but you should have more than just festors anyways. It is a nerf but i dont think its really signifcant. The bigest affect it will have IMO is in ZvP, where it'll be a little harder to kill zealots and other protoss air. But still not a huge deal as its mainly used for rooting anything other than marines...

Uploading the videos of me and my friend. So far we're at 6 games, I"m up 4-2

Be kind in the comments, I'm primarily a Protoss player and do some Zerg, I'm horrid with Terran (don't know any of their builds)

Here is game 2 (the shortest)

Few pointers:

- Be careful of the spamming in the early game. You don't have high APM so doing the pointless spamming is doing absolutely nothing - it's not even keeping on your toes.
- The location of your Pool in ZvZ is kinda important so that you don't get your Queen surrounded by lings. Try to do it next to a gas so that your Queen can kind of squeeze in between the geyser, the mineral line and the Pool, which forms kind of an 'U' shape around your queen, reducing the amount of surround they can get with their lings.
- Click the mineral patches instead of just right clicking their base location when scouting. Doing so allows you to run through blockades and get a clearer view of their base faster. Or if you _know_ you're doing ZvZ (you didn't here, admittedly), you don't need to go that far in, just check if they have creep - move around and see if they have gas (if they don't have gas ZvZ is pretty limited in terms of cheese), so you don't need to know more (although knowing the timing of their pool is beneficial). Just assume that if they haven't expanded by the 5 minute mark ingame, they're more than likely going to rush you of some sort (or they're in bronze/silver league and don't have a strat)
- Use waypoints more often. For example when you pull off drones at around 3:25 video time you should hold down shift and right click your mineral patches so that they can get back to mining once they finish holding off the attack. Also, two drones should be enough to take down a spine crawler unless you're late on spotting it. It also doesn't hurt to pull off drones that have minerals on them as long as you're not building anything with them - they're going to be returning them anyway.
- Don't put a spine crawler in his base once you have drone(s) following you. You're going to cancel it anyway.
- You probably already know this, but you want a Queen on 16 food, almost always. Don't Drone up when you're around that food mark - queue an Overlord first before getting your larva.
- If you're not getting an early Hatch, 14 pool is pointless.
- Same as with your Pool - try to minimize the surface area. Place the Spine Crawler next to your Hatchery instead of having it one block away. It reduces the amount of surround his Zerglings can get on it.
- Good call on getting the Evo Chamber once you saw double gas. He could have gone for Mutas.
- Hotkey your Queen. I didn't for quite a while and I ended up missing a lot of injects because of it.
- You saw he went for an Evo Chamber, move your Overlord away if you see a building under your Overlord (you looked at it so I'm sure you noticed) - your Overlord can't get away if it finishes while it's on top of it.
- I don't know if you noticed, but your Lings were overpopulated when surrounding his Spine Crawler at the 6:35 video mark. Use the extra lings to get his Queen instead.
