Yeah, that's good advice. TeamLiquid has a lot of good streams up, been watching them a lot lately.

I actually did a kinda crazy sling build for 1v1s against toss, it works against Diamond league players easily.

Watch and weep for him:


I might start a TL discussion on this build because it's pretty sweet.

@doom You said I didn't listen to you guys and diamond players. My point of that was to show that I'm infact listening, storing and try different strats in my games, although, sometimes I will do odd ones or mess up my timings horribly for whatever reason. I never said day9 is bad, lol, I just said I'll rather play games instead of wait to be able to watch a video. To me, play >> watch
Yeah, but like you've said yourself numerous times you can only play for 1-2 hours a day. Why not watch videos during the downtime? I dunno, I can play 24/7 with my connection but I actually tend to watch more streams/day9dailies/husky/hd/youtube videos than I actually play. I think I'm a better player because of it in fact.

Fine, play games then... but watching Day9 certainly would be better time spent than posting in this thread for you. Watch day9 in the day when you cannot play SCII.

You mean a bane bust? I can't recall trying it before. I'm the non-conventional player in the sense that I rarely cheese and play the game straightforward. Do you exp because as I recall, you shouldn't when you try it?

There were 2 pylons, one of which had another behind it. You choose the pylon with the second pylon behind it, instead of the single one that would have got you into his base. Huge fundamental mistake. I could spend all day watching your replays and find 100000 mistakes.
Yep, macro/scouting are my best issues. My macro has improved since we last played, scouting, not sure, lol, since, I haven't been playing 1vs1 for 3 days now BTW, I never said that I'm an awesome player that can be beat IMNestea, Boxer, FD, etc.... with one arm, never did I ever say that I make no mistakes, lol, I make a lot. I'm someone who loves the game a lot and loves to experiment with odd strats, etc.... As for that pylon, I can't for the life of me recall that game. I haven't gotten my early harass down tight either, since, I've been focusing on my macro with Z/T/P

If you need to watch a zerg stream, watch Destiny aka Steven Bonnell II. He's funny as hell, BMs, rages, and all of that in a hilarious way. He recently got banned for trolling a fellow streamer though (so just search Steven bonnell on Ustream).

Seriously this guy makes me laugh every night. Commentates what he does too.

My net issue doesn't affect normal internet usage, but can cause issues with watching videos, playing SC2(random), etc.... I tried watching that crysis 2 video(1-2min) couple of nights back, it never got past the first 7sec or so at 480p as well XD

If it means that much to you, I'll try to watch it, but, will have to wait a bit later on. I'll favourite it so that I don't forget

You know what...I dunno if this has been suggested before but we should get some voice talk over SC2...like ventrillo or something like that so we can all improve on our gameplay...like coaching, team games, strats etc. etc. etc. i'd be willing to pay for a server if that's what it takes to be a better gamer...but coaching/replay analysis that's another story...i play to have fun and connect with friends and new friends...

I dunno how to set -up one but hey i'm down for taht kinda stuff...

They use vent for SC2 team games, works well, although no mic on my end, at least it wasn't working last I checked

Teamliquid has an open ventrilo server and a Teamspeak 3 server for the community, 200-300 slots each I think.

I believe you can even make your own private channel in the TS3 server.
