Gotta say playing as Random is nice sometimes, it is a lot easier to know what your opponent is doing, how to counter it and the weakpoints in races.

The only problem with playing as Random means if someone does an orthodox build you probably will have never encountered it before, or if you have it's not likely to be as the race you're playing and thus makes it a lot harder to know what to do in that situation.

Same goes for me ronnin, TvT is my best matchup as well.

Not sure what League you are in, but I've been having a lot of success in Plat with going 1 rax expand into Mech in TvP. I use a build that LzGamer made and I think it is still good even with the blue flame nerf. Don't have the exact build memorized, but if you're interested PM me and I'll send you it when I get home tonight.

Hey peeps, just joined OCN awhile ago. If any lower level players want some help with their game feel free to PM, I'm high diamond in 1s (working on getting to masters TT) and masters everything else.

EDIT - should probably add that I play protoss.

When I'm protoss I do ok PVP and PvT but can't stop the macro zerg

Now that I've been doing zerg my worse matchup is midgame protoss :/

ya, it kinda works like that When most are playing a certain race and keep losing to another race, then they start to think that it has to be because of how OP or whatever term the other race is. Then it's only once they start to play the other race do they realize that it comes down to the other person's skills and not the race itself. i.e. I agree with you , macro Zergs can be hard to stop once they get to 3 bases but I dunno if my worst MU is PvsZ

Last game i played as protoss vs zerg, I canoned and FE then went charge zealots, colossus, mothership and won lol (I was on 4 bases and denied his third 4 times with carriers/voids)
post #16849 of 25319
late game protoss gets pretty hard to deal with vs other races imo since they could just warp in units to harrass expos so easily
