The original disk is too scratched to install frown.gif

Even if your cd did work you would still need the cd key. :/

Snap i re read. Thats a blizz question i suppose. Did they email you a key with that new copy?

A) The supply block was IMO the reason you didn't win outright with your push. Watch the replay again it was a terrible supply block, about 3-5 marines less than you should have because of it, and a later second thor. This means your timing is gone since this build is all about the timing.
B) You had the money / gas to start your +1 armor for the thor at the very least earlier. I didn't check the timing of the weapons for infantry but I would start that asap too.
C) I feel like your bunker was late? You kind of gave away that you weren't expanding. I would actually clear the first probe before reactor as well I think, since Reactor to me looks like a 1-1-1 ( which can kinda be countered by immortals, so you may be forcing these which you don't want ). If your bunker went up faster you may not have revealed that you didn't actually have an expansion. Again a key to this build is to deceive the protoss into thinking you FE. If you do run into that situation where you are Zealot rushed you can try and force him to follow you the other way if need be, or run around in circles near your bunker. Also you can move the marine he is chasing and only that marine to take no hits.
D) This is personal preference, but I prefer marine shield over stim for this push. 10 extra HP can last you long enough to push up the nat, as well as when you need to push up the main ( which you don't have to btw ). That's just me I don't really like hurting my own units for this all in.
E) Make sure your marines are BEHIND the thors. You basically want to chew through the zealots with the marines and when they get close they will easily die. Stalkers just don't have the DPS to kill thors being repaired, and your marines can easily be picked off in front ( or even block your thors from breaking FF's ).
F) I think you could have used 2-4 more SCV's for repair.

Thanks for the feedback. It could definitely be tighter, but there are so many zergs on the ladder that I don't practice this as much as I'd like. Combat shields do make more sense; noticed that medivacs get out a little later than normal when doing this.

I'm only Plat though as random, so what do I know redface.gif
edit: here's the basic build idea pretending I spotted a 4 gate vs an ai, the 7th cannon is up by 6:15. If they have an extremely close proxy pylon then the fight may be a close call.

At 6m 20s you have 7 cannons online and are starting your first gateway. Other guy could start picking off those cannons with as few as 4 stalkers. Maybe it's working with plat level meta game, but I think a lot of games will result in build order losses (like warp prism as you mentioned).

Zerg is meant to max out faster than the other 2 races, when Protoss has 200/200 death ball against maxed Zerg=gg along with Terran.

Sorry, I should have clarified. What I meant was that a 200/200 Protoss "death ball" or Terran "death ball" will almost always kill a 200/200 Zerg (without remaxing). At least in my case that's how it always seems to happen to me.

A 200 food army that is primarily corruptor/brood lord/infestor has a chance at beating any protoss or terran army. When protoss or terran maxes at 200 it's usually with tier 2 or 3 units (colossus, mothership, void rays, medivacs, thors, vikings). Zerg often maxes quickly on tier 1.5 (roaches/zerglings) which is expected to die/remax to a tier-3 200 army.
