Yeah you don't even need storm though . FF is stronger!

You could pick off my Zealots, I could pick of your roaches AND lings with my stalkers, with out taking any damage.

I would think some storms would eliminate a good # of marines in an MM especially if you stack them(cast more than one at a time, like 3-4 storms in same location ).
Forcefields do everything. Cover retreat, stop the kitting, divide forces, wall off, block workers in the mineral line. It's awesome. Just needs a calm hand and cooler head

Yes, but, my roaches were within range of your stalkers, however, you are correct, my zerglings just stood there waiting for the ff to end

They are definitely great to use especially with blocking and breaking up enemy forces

I need to practice using forcefields. Especially to cut off terran reinforcements or to split forces on a ramp.

HEre is a replay of an awesome game I just played on the new Jungle map. at first when the game started, I was liek ***! and froze for 3 seconds when I noticed a different map. I was gonna yell OMG***HAX! till I realized Massiv told me about new maps coming out.

I've just been called noob for using force fields against another 1000 toss. I'm really starting to wonder how all these guys got to diamond. Played PvP on jungle basin and he 4 gated against my 2 gate robo. Then he attacked with 4 gates worth of stalkers against my zss + 1 immortal. I managed to split his stalkers exactly in half on the ramp and killed all of them with some micro with barely any losses. He said: "noob" and left the game

lol, nice work. I also wonder how people get up so far in the ladder. 4 gating seems strong though. I mean unless I'm mistaken, when I played against thiru, he was 4 gating pretty much most of his matches and go stalkers+zealots was too much for my units, although, my games weren't the best I've played

@ Nevaziah Looking at game now

A few things I noticed...
Both teams scouted very poorly...
The zerg on top right did a quick expo but didn't even move his drones or build enough for it to be useful.
The two zergs below sent mass zerglings to attack a planetary fortress.
Poor microing with the late hellion attack...
I laughed at the spine crawlers at the entrance of the bottom left zerg's base.
The expos of the bottom two zergs had zero protection.
The topplayers AND the bottom players didn't group their units up with their teammates.

I think of the zergs on the bottom combined their mutas, they would've won.

Didn't really look like a macro game at first when I saw 4 gate against 1-basing zerg. You could've won it in first 10 minutes if you went through destructible rocks at the back instead of pushing his front. Nice game though, lots of back and forth action, must have been fun to play. I would get templar tech though rather then colossi if you had a chance.

^ re that:
1. you didn't 4 gate push when you could, and waited too long so he got hydras.
2. 4 gate push expand is a little too late.
3. you built extra gates before 2nd base was up, thats when you got hard countered. You didn't have enough to produce out of 4 gates and probes at the time, and the extra gates weren't being used.

Hence you see many like huk go 2 gate robo to expand and then build more gates and robo support. But he's constantly pumping stuff out off 2-3 gates and robo.

Funny game dood. Many things still to improve though. All nexus had full chronoboost. Your 2rd expo was in a great area. Hold that and you held all three bases. LOL at bad of a player that zerg was. He had less than 20 drones on minerals the entire game, as in he was on one base, with 19 drones the entire game and I was lmao.
