That is indeed true my fellow Zerg

Merry Christmas everyone!

Unless you're a Zerg player. Or named BigFan.

Anyways, happy xmas everyone. Finally got a new build to set up, going from a 1.8ghz single core to a 3.0ghz dual core AM3 and 4gigs of DDR3.
Congrats on the new build, should be a keeper As to mass marines, I see your point. I think it's very powerful as well especially with upgrades, stim and large numbers

Those players are pretty pro in my opinion.
That was a retarded game IMO.

Let's see you try it vs some sick Zergs and see how you feel. Pure MMM even with Ravens will get raped by a good Z. Banes, Infestors, slings... so good. Aren't you plat? There is a huge difference between play and high Diamond Zergs, HUGE. Most Zergs in high Platinum still don't even remotely how to play Zerg ( cough NorthKorea ), and they play cute / fancy.

You NEED tanks / Thors. But you did mention tanks and thors... so yes I do that build. Still it's damn near impossibly hard where I'm @ in Ladder. I win TvZ 25% probably in ladder and I consider myself a very solid TvZ player.


Have you tried playing vdek yet? Also got another for you to play.

Does North really play that badly? Curious, what kind of cute/fancy plays does he try because in your game against him, there wasn't any of that. It also was a good idea to lay down those crawlers, although, I also lay down 2 in exp and 1 in base incase of early harass. Curious to this new TvsZ strat you have. I'll be on later tonight, care for some practice? I also know your current strat so it won't work as easily

Just got the new computer set up, feels MUCH faster than my old 1.8ghz single core. Hopefully I can finally play SC2 while listening to music LOL.

I dunno, I mean, true a dual core is no slouch, lol, but, with sc2, higher clocks means better fps, so, listening to music would use technically slow down the game. If you had a tri+, then you could probably set affinity of music player to the last so that sc2 runs on the first two cores(you can set affinity or leave it)

Listening to music shouldn't use a full 3GHz core though. Maybe an eighth of a core at most.

I got my friend a 4650 for when SCII came out, it runs the game reasonably well at medium settings.

For sure, I've had this card for a little over a year now. It's definitely a good card but I was severely bottle necked by my processor. Raising the video settings would still net me the same fps no matter what games that I played. Tell tale sign of a cpu bottleneck there.
Edit: I'm surprised at how far that onboard sound has come. The onboard on this motherboard blows away my Audigy 2zs.

Yah, my friends running on a 1.8ghz core2duo I believe. It gets very laggy during intense games...
