I went roaches so I could actually kill those rocks
post #3562 of 25319
Just watched the replay, nice. I once had a probe slip into my base, *hide* behind a tree and then build a pylon later on in the game to wrap in dts. I ended up losing since I checked at the start of the game and didn't see any pylons. Warping using pylons is pretty interesting, definitely makes games more intense especially if your opponent wraps in a large number to reinforce his army

That would've been interesting with the spine crawlers, but, I do see his point about roaches. Also, with spine crawlers, it would've been a headache trying to move them across the map, so, either way you would've need roaches later on and that might have given him enough time to recover

Proxy pylons are very interesting. Sometimes they work, and sometimes they don't though. When they do, it's really cool. Warp prisms are better in some ways, because they can move.

Unfortunately, I missed that game, but, I'm watching the GSL 2. More intense games than some of the MLG ones

There are a lot of greener players in the RO64 right now so I disagree. A lot of the MLG games were awesome.

edit: greener than other GSL players, not greener than MLG, which had its share of green players of course (I wouldn't know how many, didn't watch the first games)

I'm totally going to have to agree that a lot of not so great players also made it into the Ro64. That 16 year old Zerg player who didn't spread his creep this morning comes to mind.

The MLG games were all high level from the ones I saw. I really recommend that game vs idrA. It was kiwikaki vs idra I think.

I think idrA plays in GSL2 tonight in 2 hours.


I just want boxer ( slayers_boxer / manofoneway ) to win.

I really need to work on my SC2 game more, but I've just been swamped with homework recently... I'm still in bronze.

I actually did proxy spine cralwers in one game a few weeks back. I had just watched the no queen day9 vids and saw someone do it, so I tried the same. It didn't actually work, but it kept him inside his base for the longest time and I eventually managed to beat him. I even posted a replay which no one ever watched/commented on
