we were talking about apm, this tos was up to 410 apm while macro and mirco vs bane and speedlings. I gota learn from these ppl.
Don't worry about apm, it's overrated. Some of the players in the GSL were averaging ~400 apm and they didn't win (I believe the winner had around 150-200). You really only need to 60-100 to play decently in diamond. You can't really learn apm; it's just a lot of practice spamming accurately lol.

Well this is interesting. I have 2 versions of SC2 installed, and one alt-tabs in a few seconds and the other takes like 20 seconds

edit: got harrassed by mutas. Overreacted with phoenixes. He switched to hydras. Got owned. Damn that tech switch!

Phoenix's don't attack ground, so Voids would have survived the tech switch better. (By that I mean soft countering with voids and phoenix's instead of hard countering with just phoenix's)

I was going to ask if you need 2 clients. You can fix the alt-tab issue by changing video setting from Fullscreen to Fullscreen [windowed].

Do you know how keen Doomdash is to share his account with other fellow OCNers?

The problem is that mutas absolutely own void rays. Phoenixes are only good in smaller numbers and with a good micro. There's Phoenix vs muta micro trainer map on bnet to pracitice it.

Generally if zerg overcommits to mutas, you can just go and kill him if you have enough stalkers. At the same time it's hard to rely on one tech too long because of how easy it is for zerg to tech switch. The best late game unit composition I've found against zerg is a good mix of speed zealots, blink stalkers, immortals, HTs and archons

I just played some matches with thiru, lost some and the last two which I had the greatest chance of winning, the connection was dropped in one and the other one, the game just froze for whatever odd reason and just as I was able to attack as well Yes, mutalisks can be countered with stalkers however mutalisks are great for harassing an opponent and in numbers can be devastating due to their bounce attack
