It's probably the top 5% of diamond players. There are currently 52,000 diamond players in NA, so the top 5% is about 2600 players. Sounds good to me.

Couldn't get the concussive shells icon exactly but for my POV it looks like it...or simmilar. In one of the Day9 casts I saw his shirt and I kinda said *** that's cool. So I just hacked up some images from the web and this is the result.

Anyway I hope y'all like it.
Nice and so true

lol. I disagree, Z late game is strong because if your macro is spot on, you can recreate your unit pretty fast. My only complaint against our late game is that BLs and ultras only attack ground units, we have no ground to air or air to air units unlike the carriers and BCs. However, this just means that the corruptors will be used instead against them

Hey all, just had to post here because If you are on default settings, THIS IS POST PAGE 666 !!! mwahahahaha

Anyways, on a more serious note, I finaly hit 2000 Platinium. I know it doesnt mean much since I dont play a lot but hey, it was a goal for me.
Next step: Diamond!

- EDIT: and yes, Zerg late game is insane. Ever try to base trade as protoss or terran against a zerg? A protoss tried that against me once, I had 5 bases on shakuras plateau (whole left side so main at the north, its natural, 3rd next to natural, bottom base and its natural)

He took out the bottom base and its natural. I had enough time to take down ALL the bases on the right side AND come back to decimate his army before he could move back out of my south western base and into my north western starting base. The funny part is he killed almost ALL my drones on the bottom cause I had transfered most of em, and I didnt rebuild them, I just made more units to meet up with my main force coming back...

late game, I usually have something like 10 larvae on each hatchery cause i never stop dropping larvae even when I get maxed and whenever I get maxed and I have at least 750 to 1000 minerals&gaz, I just attack. I dont wait for my protoss/Terran buddy to get maxed, I dont question myselft I just attack, and rebuild my force. he may take down my whole army but If I kill at least 75% his force at a good enough distance from my hatcheries, I can rebuild it all in less than a few seconds and have it ready for when he thinks of counter attacking....

lol, nice notice. Congrats on 2k, but, not enough! Practice, practice, practice to diamond!

As for late game, one problem is that you seem to be forgetting the distance. I mean long maps such as Shakuras are fine but if you are playing on something like steppes, good luck rebuilding all your army before he arrives at your base. Nonetheless, with many hatcheries+stockpiled resources, rebuilding your army can be a snap

Oh, trudat. But even on steppes, think about it. If you have your main, your natural and the base on the high ground, and you engage the terran either at HIS high ground or at his natural. Ever time ONE of your units die, you make another (say 3 roaches die, you make an ultra, 3 more die, you make 3 hydras, 10 lings die, you make 5 roaches etc.. By the time the fight is over AND he moves out, you should have a `better` army (or even an upgraded army).

It all depends on where you decide to engage too, but you`re right, usually once the terran or protoss is maxed on steppes, it gets a lot harder cause there really arent many ground routes you can take to their base. The terran can just leapfrog forever till they get to your expos. Good terran(and protoss) players will attack expos while defending theirs, so the attack route becomes slow but meticulous.

Thank god I play random, I get to learn from ANYTHING that is said about starcraft anywhere and I can see everything from all perspectives

So when does the real patch hit, and when it does, is the ladder going to reset, or will ther be a reset further down the road?

Sounds funny from you. Why don't you move your lazy ass out of silver already?

Btw, you guys should watch one of the last daylies with Sen vs Incontrol, where day 9 talks exactly about this. 300 food zerg army and replacing units as they die into better army comp etc.

Which is why I always try to end the game early on against Zerg. When they get that third secured its pretty much GG.
