What you can do is just make a ton of stalkers and roaches and then practice blink using the editor. If you practice that scenario enough, you're blink micro will skyrocket. Of course, start with a small number of stalkers and roaches and make more of each as your ability to micro the stalkers increases, otherwise, if you are trying to micro 50 or so and don't have the required level, you'll get overwhelmed
Up for a game or two in 15-20min?

Okay, so a recap of the Qualifiers for those of you who weren't able to keep up.

GSL Season 3 will have:
27 Zergs (42%)
24 Terrans (38%)
12 Protoss (18%)
and 1 Random (2%)

Notable Players failing to qualify:
NaDa, probably the biggest upset.
Loner, probably the 2nd biggest upset.
Cella!, probably my saddest moment.

HuK, KiwiKaki, Incontrol, Artosis, Torch, Select

Thanks for this, +REP Bad question, but, I'm guessing all those other players didn't make it, since, someone mentioned HuK didn't?

@banded Sorry I wasn't able to respond to the message you sent me, I was planning to reply, but, I accidentally closed it Was watching a replay and planning to head to bed, so, I wouldn't have been able to play a game, but, we can probably get one going tommorrow I'll make sure to add you so that if this happens again, we can still communicate

@DoomDash Watched that base race game you uploaded. One thing that I loved about T is the ability to lift off and you used it well landing in that secluded area between the rocks. The one thing that came to mind though is when you had those 2 hellions, why not wait for a third then attack? You also didn't seem to micro them because his slings easily got a surround. Three hellions would've fried those lings regardless of them not having the blue flame upgrade. He would've keep on making slings while you massed MM and by the time he's taken down those hellions, your MM would've easily OP'd whatever he had. Other than this remark, I think you played well. It was interesting to see how he responded to your bunker early on and the fact that he built another hatchery in his exp and not main. Only guess is to use that to make a choke, but, who knows

Just had an interesting ZvsZ game on Scrap Station. The interesting part was that he went for 15 exp 14 pool which is my usual although I avoid it against Z and I went the opposite of that because I anticipated a zling attack like the usual one ZvsZ matches are. Well, I caught him right as he was building his pool and the rest was history. I find whenever you get the upper hand in ZvsZ, it can be easier to maintain if you keep tabs on what they are producing, their tech level, etc.... although I guess that's pretty much the same with all games and races.

Replay for anyone interested: http://www.sc2replayed.com/replays/1...-scrap-station
I didn't drone as hard as I wanted, but, I think droning was what hurt him early on and there was another reason for less drones, I'll keep that a secret

What exactly do you mean by "I went the opposite of that" - 10 pool? If he blindly went 15 hatch/14 pool without scouting against Z he's kind of an idiot. Scouting with the 8th or 9th drone is key in a ZvZ since early game boils down to a game of Pool Chicken. Keep tabs on when he drops his pool and you can pretty easily go for an economic opening - even hatch first depending on rush distances. With that being said, if you see an early pool with your scout, you better abort your plan in a hurry.

What's the timing on your initial OL getting to his base on SS? I think I have the map banned

How many I had didn't really matter because I ran into a problem. If you notice I tried to chase after his drones but the hellions were actually unable to fit between his two buildings at the bottom of the ramp! So I could not get through! Also, I'm not sure I recall what happened to them, but Hellions are actually pretty bad against speedlings with out blue flame and in small numbers. Unless they all line up, but speedlings never really line up.

omg, this week's State of the Game is probably my favorite.


hahaha, i'm listening to it while i type this.

painuser vs nony and incontrol. arguing about who has it worst. is the BEST PART.

the highlight was banshee vs DT.

pain user was like, "DT's are better than banshee's"
and incontrol was like, "WHAT THE ****!"
and nony was like, "How many games in tournaments were won becuase of Banshee's? Like 20. Now how many games were won because of DTs? Like 1"

and a lot lot more.
