post #571 of 25319
I had a little 6-man LAN party this past weekend. I don't think I can ever play this game seriously again. We won 3 games in a row where the only attack unit I built was marines. Yes, exclusively marines for 3 games. On the last game 3 of us built only marines... and won versus a 4v4 AT team of diamond 1v1 players.

I was (literally) tired due to laughing from this game. I was crying during part of it. Absolutely funniest thing I've ever seen...

Lol team play is completely different than solo play, that's why you won with only rines. Also, people rarely play 4v4, it's probably the least played match up, so I don't know how you can judge a game by that.. Try to hit me up on SC, I doubt you will win with marines

I've been getting just crushed lately with 2on2's being teamed up on. Changed my build order a bit for rushes, and it's working quite well, except when they just constantly port in stalkers.

I do this:

- 10supply
- 11barracks
- 12refinery
- stick 2 additional svc's on refinery
- 13barracks

start pumping marines out on the 1st finished barracks, once the second one's done building I upgrade it (the c button upgrade, can't remember what it's called, just that it allows 2 marines at once)...while that's upgrading i have the 2nd barracks build marines so i constantly have a supply. Once the first is done I upgrade to tech lab and start pumping mauraders and usually upgrade to a command center. At this point I'm not quite sure if that's the best move...I think it may be a bit early for that? Anyways, after the cc update, I go factory > starport with dual building upgrade and push out two medivacs and ignore the starport for a while.

I've been see'ing other terran players go a second cc at 21...is that pretty early? Suggestions?

And yes - i've been using stimpacks and concussive shell (sp?); upgrading fairly early with those as well. BTW - when would you start upgrading at the engineer bay?

Doesn't matter how different it is. I don't care if you'd win vs. mass marines, that's not impressive - Frankly, It'd be sad if you didn't.

They used exactly what anyone would vs. mass marines. High templars, ultralisks, etc... all the correct units. They obviously knew how to play and we should not have won. We played like complete morons expecting nothing but a laugh...

Eh you've clearly made up your mind about the game, so I'm no going to even bother arguing.

Wall off with big buildings like barracks and factories, if you must use depots, hrow a bunker behind the depot; you can always salvage the bunker later. A good wall off should always hold off a zealot rush, always

Ultralisks are not even being close to countering marines. Maybe they were having a laugh as well. A handfull of banelings would make your army vanish in seconds.

I have. We played with the intention of laughing a lot and losing a game... IIRC They were a diamond 4v4 AT, as well as diamond 1v1 players. They know the mechanics of team games, and really should have won.

To be honest I'm terrible at Starcraft 2. I'm a diamond RT 3v3 player, plat 1v1. I don't know much about the game nor how to play well, I play to have a good time. Our win wasn't impressive, it was retarded. We didn't deserve it, but it certainly was fun.
