[Official] Starcraft 2 Strategy & Discussion Thread - Page 668

post #6671 of 25319
Man, as much as I think banelings are a little too good right now, TvZ is probably the most brilliant match up in the game to me. I think that I do like banelings being in SCII after all, but I just think they need a slight radius, damage, or other reduction.

Still, I really like how Terran has to fall back to his siege lines with stim ect. It's pretty cool. I feel like eventually if banelings are not adjusted Z's will figure out how to properly include infestors to FG any retreating units, and the match up will be completely broken. I know some try it, but not nearly enough.

My upgrading recently is so improved! I really like my TvZ build now, and I have a pretty good FE vs Protoss ( so far ) on some maps.

I have some questions about the newegg tournament.

I'm in B, and I'm listed before my opponent is. Does this mean I'm seeded higher? That's who picks the first map?

Second, I can't find his code number anywhere.

NVM found his code.


Can't find his SN on sc2ranks though.

His SN says "lilgamer1337" but I looked that up on sc2 ranks and it wasn't there.

I thought you may be interested in a game I saw today. I was watching Antimage's stream and he played against terran on xelnaga. Protoss went for standard 2 gate robo after seeing what looked like banshees opening, while terran got a bunch of marines and some tanks before expanding. Once on two bases he got couple of ghosts and then went pure mech. He literally didn't make any bio units after early mid game and his late game composition was consisted mainly of thors, some tanks and a lot of hellions.

He made it work by constantly harassing with hellions, using a lot of scans to follow protoss army and moving into his mineral line with like 10 hellions as soon as there were no units around. At some point he killed pretty much all probes at 3 expansions and soon after won the game.

Arrrrgh, I tried playing as Xelnaga once and it was just so annoying. Takes so many damn resources to get a Collosulisk, though it is nice to see it plow through their massed units. So many of their abilities I still don't understand. PLUS you have to enter that stupid 50-digit code every time you want to play as them, and it doesn't even tell you whether you got it right.

Yes, I'm trolling. =p I know you mean the map, and I just felt like making a joke.

Same here, although I am in group C. I hope my opponent shows up tomorrow night.

@Doomdash: I'm sure you would've won against that guy anyways .

This is the first tourney I'm playing in a very long time.
