[Official] Starcraft 2 Strategy & Discussion Thread - Page 726

post #7251 of 25319
I'm so tired of SC2.. none of my friends play, and the blizzard matchmaking is ridiculous. I always ask my teammates what league they're in. I've been holding down #6-8 in a 3v3 gold league for MONTHS now, and I always get paired with people from bronze. Literally 90% of the time at least one of the teammates is bronze. WHAT THE HELL?!?! I play this game because I'm competitive and I want to play with people on the same level as me, not be crippled by some idiot who has 3 F*&@^$ zealots at 7 minutes.

Due to this, I think I'm quitting. Need a new game to play that requires NO skill so at least it's fair. When the hell is Diablo 3 coming out?

But he mentions to work on one or two at a time, to practice with buddes etc.. (see Daily No 229 i think, on banelings)
I believe EVERY new player should watch the day9 newbie tuesday, heck i believe every player should. You can always take something from it.

If you really want to be competitive, 1vs1 is the way to go. 3vs3 just isn't as competitive because it ends up being mass tier x unit. Also, it comes down to who attacks first in that matchup and who your teammates are

After reinstalling? Quite bizzare, never heard of it before and the battle.net forums yielded no hints because I would assume someone has had a similar issue already?

I think you guys are misunderstanding what I'm saying. I already know all those mentioned and have stated them myself many times without ever watching a single day9 video. I've made up maps where I practiced microing units(marines, phenoixes, etc....) and have done some practice before.

I've carefully analyzed every single game I've ever played afterwards to see where I messed up, what I could've done better even though I won and what my opponent was doing during all that time. My point is, I'm enjoying sc2 as is and developing my own skills at my rate as time passes. Will I watch a day9episode sometime in the near future? Possibly, depending if I find one of his videos interesting, but, atm I'm fine as is

What rank are your opponents?

I started out in Silver 3v3 (2-3 placement because of bad teammates) but you just got to keep at it. I'm Diamond now after carrying my teams for around 60 games. And note, not everyone takes 3v3 seriously, a lot of people, like myself, either play random for fun or play to warm up for 1v1s.

If you're truly gold, it'll show in the long run. Keep at it.

He doesn't tell you what to do or what strat to use though. So I don't know where you're getting that from if you haven't watched an episode.

Day9 is just like a GSL game, only better, because he can pause and fast-forward AND* typically he watches the replay before hand and sifts through the good ones before showing us, saving us time in finding good replays.

Don't be bias, a source is a source, so why not pick up and piece info together from ALL sources. Other players, pro games, AND day9

If you were that good at analyzing your own games you'd be better.

Go watch Day9.
