Plus it is way more fun this way. Really enjoying Protoss at the moment.
You backstabber!!!!!
jk of course. Personally, I wanna go random as well, but, there is no point ATM without getting zerg down well. I would love to try a zealot+stalker+sentry or zealot+stalker+colossi combo or even an MMM ball microing to take out zealots or roaches, etc.... but I also love roaches, slings and mutalisks and I feel if I am to play T or P, I will be overwhelmed by any zerg opponent that I might be paired against

[QUOTE=BigFan;11100282 I feel if I am to play T or P, I will be overwhelmed by any zerg opponent that I might be paired against [/QUOTE]

I lose every game I play as T or P, but learning fast and its really given me an insight into what my opponent is going to do.
The games that I get Zerg as random I find myself playing a little differently than I did.
I dont know that it has made any major improvement yet, but I honestly think it will in the long run.

I'm pretty confident that it will help me in the long run in terms of improvements in reading my opponent and playing the game overall, but, I just love zerg so much. The fact that it's APM intensive is kind of why I'm drawn to the race as well as the units such as slings, roaches, mutalisks, etc.... I always wanted to play random when I started playing some practice games and I did play two games as protoss(lost both to P and T I think), but, it just feels like I'm betraying zerg

A funday monday we played with Jediwin (queens) Nevaziah (hydras) and myself (zealots) against noobs (first placement match lol).

It's pretty funny. Mass queens means you expand 10 times faster than everyone else and gather resources so fast it's not even funny.
And the whole frigging map was covered in creep

Hydras are just so expansive to produce. Remember that one game where I decided to go hydras and started taking gas and almost saturated my base and yet I wasn't able to keep production. Queens are a good idea on the other hand. They do 8(4x2 hits), can transfuse so you can constantly heal your army as well as spreed creep to prevent exp which is pretty nice I'll try to take a look since it sounds interesting

The queen rush never gets old.

I just did a 4v4 where I queen rushed one of the other teams, epic. Spine crawlers + Queens

I'm very surprised the other team lost. Queens have a dps of almost nothing, as evidenced by just dozens of them killing hardly anything.
furthermore, it's very difficult to correctly time transfuse when 8-10 queens are getting owned at any one point.
Basically, if the other team had gotten maybe five-six tanks along with their mnm ball, they wuld have trampled that hydra/queen/chargelot army.

Still a fun game. Wish I got to play people that bad : (

They were really bad. It was our first placement match or something like that so they probably were bronze level (if you look at the blue protoss he builds like 6 warpgates on 1 base).

The only reason we won is that Jediwin expanded like 5 times and we starved them out of minerals

That Immortal drop on top of the siege tanks was pretty awesome by Nexgenius.
Terran has to go MMM vs Protoss ( or MMG ect ) or they get steam rolled.
