Yeah but void rays generally suck and they're freaking slow, and against mutas they will get raped like no other air unit.

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
Well I still plan on laddering the EU account at my own pace (ie slowly), and I won't tarnish Doomdash's account by playing ladder on his

And you should ask Doomdash (by PM, don't want to advertise his second account in this thread )

Lol yeah, you have the crappiest luck especially the last game when I basically suicided my army with that silly move xD

Must have been that video issue. Is it overclocked?

They are slow, however, if used correctly, they are great. Phenoixs are better against mutas though. Void rays are for bc, carriers, etc... due to their charge up BTW, I just send you a message thiru.

I do recently, maybe a new gpu is in order, but, I wanna make sure that it's not the game but the gpu first. Well, it wasn't silly, had an opponent try that once and they succeeded, thus, the reason I tried to block the ramp in this case My gpu isn't oc'd, it's the same way I bought it, same with my cpu and everything else. As for that game, I was coming with about 17 mutas or so, so, unless you had stalkes massed, you were going down

Good luck on solving the issue.

Will do. Sadly I think we're the only two active OCN EU players.

That's very disappointing to hear. Maybe there is someone else on here who has another account similar to DoomDash? That would help if they are willing to allow you to use it once Blizzard allows you to play on the server you want
Very interesting to read: http://www.teamliquid.net/forum/view...opic_id=157292

PvP is still better than ZvZ though. Actually I think it's currently my best matchup as I had some success against protosses as high as 1000 diamond.

Don't you have a problem with running two clients? I remember when I installed US client it would be used as default and every time I wanted to open a replay or a map it would launch and make me use my guest account.
