What he said. The hatchery is simply there for SPAWNING the larva and whatnot, the other buildings is what lets them turn into various things. Though you might not be able to turn them into drones without a hatchery, I'd have to check that...

Yes, you can turn them into drones if you dont have a hatchery


On another subject..

Was playing some 1v1 quickmatch today, and me (a crappy bronze player with less than 40 games under my belt) got paired up against a Platinum player that's played over 500 games and won 60% of them.. how the hell is that fair?

thats part of the matchup system. its not perfect, but its not terrible. i get a few players every now and then that slaughter me in gold and i look and see they are diamond. a trick to you sir is to take the replay and watch what he does in comparison to you. learn from it and grow as a player.

I don't think the matching system for 2v2 looks at 1v1 stats.

Oh sorry I read your post wrong.
He probably lost a lot of games in a row, and the system wanted to match him against someone lower... but could only find you

Just wondering if I would be able to select them individually and morph them into units as long as the other necessary building (Spawning Pool etc) remained or does not having the main structure remove the option to morph them.
Yes, you can...

The only things you can't do without lair/hive are some research/upgrades.

Luck of the draw?
Just try your best and if you lose, you know why Personally, i would look at the replay afterwards and notice the kind of moves he is making incase you encounter him again later on and to learn some new tricks, strategies, etc....

Im ranked 12 platinium player and every once in a while I get matched up with gold players. I did loose against a gold player once. It is probably a compliment, meaning either you have been doing very well recently or your oponnent was doing horribly (considering leagues and points).

When I started, I used to watch replays religiously. Now I can tell what i did wrong by their unit composition vs mine, their expansions(i always scout now), upgrades, the minerals I have sitting in the bank, my supply count vs units made etc..

- always keep your supply count up. (getting better at this)
- Always use the minerals in the bank for SOMETHING (still working on this). In the span of a micro, sometimes its hard to work it out but that is what hokeys are for
