I had a terrible day yesterday..I went 3-16. I almost broke some..stuff lol. I had 1400 points at two different times, but losses hurt .

My 2v2 R right now says I'm 4th in North America(1640 points), but it will drop in a day or so. I was up to 1670 before the losses started.

I've having a pretty easy time in ladder recently. IDK what it is.... but I've gone up like 2% on my w/l ratio. Also beating players way higher than me.

Nice, 1400, I'm still sitting at 200, but, again 19 games in a day!!!!! I'm lucky to get in 5 or so and depending on who I'm up against, losing a couple takes me down a notch, however, I have >800 bonus pool saved up, so, if I win some games, I can move up rather quickly especially if my opponent is favored(haven't had this in sometime now). Nice record as well, 4 in NA and 13 in the World for 2vs2, although, 1vs1 is usually the one taken into account for tournes and such

Well, personally, I just hate those especially when you forget to build a spore colony while teching up and get taken down by a banshee

Maybe players are getting worse? You could also just be improving

Everybody is just playing which makes the entire communities points go higher. I don't know why but I've always had much less points than my skill level I think.

In fact Cory said it best. After we played some games he pretty much said "How the he'll are you only 800 points?" in disbelief . That was a long time ago but he was way higher than me at the time and I don't think I lost any of our games.

Anyway, I'm still waiting on Cory to challenge me and avenge himself ( Let's do this! ).

Also lately I've been getting an itch to play some Z vs high rated Protoss to see how I do.


*EDIT*

Also, I've never used Reapers since release, never proxied, or anything like that. I've always played incredibly focused around a strong economy and less gimmicks. Maybe that's why I think I'm pretty well rounded for my point #. I also make up my own builds and just run what I think works best for me over stealing from pros.

That's true, I just find it odd that people are fitting in 19 games or so while I can barely get in 5. It's probably partially due to my net. Also, I started MP end of Sept, most started since the game came out skipping SP or quickly playing through it, but, I took my time, so, it only makes sense that they would have 1000 while I'm still 200 or so with an 800+ bonus pool As for the skill level, well, you definitely play well, especially with Terran since they are your main, but, TBH, I can't exactly comment on how well. I've only ever played a couple of 1vs1 against you and while you were creaming me in the first couple of matches, I've improved upon my strategy and everytime we played afterwards, I was able to get some surprises in like how I took down your main lair in our last ZvsZ game using a nydus worm. I'm pretty confident that you weren't expecting that even though it was right next to your drones I also believe that my skill level is higher than where I am but it's because I make bad mistakes like forget spore colonies and get taken out by a single banshee

I'm also interested in challenging you again and avenging my losses, so, prepare yourself

hehehe, sounds just like me. I've always wanted to try a 6 pool but never did and doubt I ever will, just sounds too easy of a win and a risky move as well. I try to get a strong economy early on and end up gimping my army which is probably the reason that I lose to MMM balls and zealot+stalker+sentry combo, but, I'm working on the balance. I don't have a specific build that I follow, infact, I haven't read up on any builds other than what was written in this thread, so, I've developed my own way of building up my base and I vary it up between game such as maybe gas at 15 or gas at 17, maybe some roaches or hydras, but, I might pressure my opponent with zerglings early on especially if my scouting reveals that I'll have some zerglings by the time they are building their first zealot. I also haven't watched many replays, since, for one, on my net they take forever to load in even 720p. I think I watched one or two because someone mentioned that they were interesting but I wasn't paying much attention to the build, more for the action and the interesting commentary. I do have to admit that I did see the overload+baneling drop from Fruitdealer in the highlights video that TL did so I might try that especially against siege tanks

I'm gonna be honest that you probably have quite a ways before you'll beat me, at least with Terran. The game you took out my hatch you weren't even remotely close to beating me.. I was taking out everything you had and saving my base at the same time ( lost hatch or not ). The difference between leagues is a lot more than I think you understand at the moment.

Did we play a PvZ recently though? Because if we did ( on Blistering ), that was actually your closest to beating me. I have literally 10 Protoss 1v1's in all of SCII though.

Did we play a PvZ recently though? Because if we did ( on Blistering ), that was actually your closest to beating me. I have literally 10 Protoss 1v1's in all of SCII though.
I never did say I beat you in that game, but, prior to that game, I haven't been able to lay as much as a single hit on any components of your base regardless of whether you were T, P or Z. Remember that one game(ZvsZ) where you just massed roaches+hydras till 200 while my base didn't have much units and completely wiped me out, well, compare that game to our last Z game and you'll see what I mean. I was able to at least destroy a lair in the last game we played, so, I'm making progress. I probably won't beat you anytime soon, since, I am taking my time playing the game unlike you guys who are flying through, but, I will eventually down the road I also enjoy the challenge As for the difference in leagues, well, it all comes down to practice in the end. As the level increases, you need to macro and micro better to win the game and that comes with experience. I've only played so many games(50 now I think) in comparison to some people's hundreds of games, not including beta or SC games. Obviously, there are other factors, such as scouting, knowing counters, etc.... but, I believe that practice makes perfect and learning from your mistakes also helps. There is a reason that pros play 10 hours a day, although TBH, I would rather not play that long
