You should send in suicidal overlords. The only reason you stayed alive for so long was because NK was so hesitant to attack. You actually could have beat him when you first had your mutas if you had sent them in along with your lings after to clean up.

Nice, modular is good for better air circulation, low temps and less mess If it makes you feel better, I missed the start as well. Was able to get on before they all started to leave, lol.

I did have fun though. I got wiped by Vdek in TvsP 3 times in a row. Went for gateways in my base, what a cheeser XD Then went for 4 gate on steepes and I didn't have a big enough army. Finally, on LT, due to not getting a 2nd exp and not scouting, I was attacked by 7 colossi or so I was able to get a drop into his main and take out all his probes plus some pylons but didn't matter because I was attacked right after and lost Had some good games with calm as well(got crushed in first similar to how you won in our game the first time as well).

What was the result of the second game between BigFan and Calm? I stopped watching after BC rush. The first game was epic though.
XD Maybe in your book it was, went down as horrible in mine
From what I've seen in the GSL, they just talk about the player or some random stuff at the start since most matches have generic starts then they start focusing on what each is building and what the possible strat from it is along with any engagements or harass, etc.... Like someone starts building 2-3 rax, then you can say he's powering or making of drones, power droning, etc....

I ended up taking the second one. The first is forbidden to be spoken of XD He attacked in the first and since I wasn't scouting, I wasn't able to make an attack force big enough to defend against his.

BigFan ended up getting like 9 BLs and 4 Ultras and won, but still almost lost.

You should've got on some NA account and played with us Blinker!
Well, the BO according to you guys is also important Still almost lost? I admit that bc at the start took me offguard and I hate thors especially since I love mutas and haven't practiced my magic box, so, it's almost a death statement, but, I had the spire before he attacked the first time and made corruptors which popped right after the bc killed my last queen and engaged my first muta, so, I didn't lose any workers or structures. Likewise, I was able to take out any other attacks afterwards and had 4 compared to his 1 then 2 bases

You're lucky you got see my BLs and ultras, because, those are rare in my games since I don't usually tech up to hive by the end of the game

Ghosts with cloak *can* be a bad idea. EMP+snipe is what makes them good against P(emp especially again immortals) and snipe is great to take out those larger/harder units. You expanded too late on that map, you should've went for 2 rax FE or so. The long distance would've meant you would have had an easy time defending the exp and it would've given you an advantage against me as well due to being on par base wise

I feel your pain XD I was up till 3-4 in the morning the last week at least because of that, lol, even then, if you don't have work the next day and don't mind waking up a bit late, it's not that bad

Glad everyone liked the stream though (except vdek who said it was crap-quality =P), high quality SC2/WOW streams have been pretty much my obsession lately.

I'll play some music next time, instead of just being on Skype with my friends, so you don't have to listen to them talk about WOW. But y'all prolly wont like my music.

And maybe if I'm fast enough, I'll get some VODs of funny BigFan-esque things, lol.

And Doom will be streaming soon, so you can watch him ladder and make fun of him.
lol, why not focus the stream to the game as in everything from the music to the sounds to obviously the gameplay, would make it more interesting to watch

lol @ BigFan-esque things, let's see you try that XD

I hate suiciding OLs, don't think I ever did actually, because, I used to tech to lair fast for mutas and then use overseers to look around, but, I should just get used to suiciding them, lol. My mistake for not attacking so soon, wasn't sure what he had planned, but, since he had an exp before me, it wasn't a good sign, at least that's how I saw it

Watch this:
It's all about fighting an early expand. Thing is, when they early expand, they are down 300minerals for zerg, 400 for terran/toss. You have a window were you can do a lot of damage if you take advantage of it. If you don't, you better expand as well.

yes, I'm well aware of the timing when an exp is going down because of that shortage, however, when I scouted it, it was a little too late. He already had it pop and got the larvae from it which meant that he would be able to support his troops as well as I would be able to especially when distances are taken into out. I think I tried to exp but his slings > slings which made it difficult to expand just yet :/

According to masterlaw, he said that my 2nd hatch inbase was a bad idea which makes me wonder how your supposed to defend against mass slings with only one hatchery. I guess crawlers are the answer then :/

You have to scout and check how many workers he has. You actually had 6-7 more workers and higher income than him for about 15 minutes...

Played a few games and am noticing my issues.
1. I suck at planning ahead with my resources. I never seem to have enough gas, and get an excess of minerals, then don't know what to build that just uses minerals. It's possible I've just been building too many workers in these games.
2. I try scouting often, but I never quite know what to look for or how to react to something. The only time I'd honestly be able to safely send a worker to the enemy base is right at the beginning, when I know they're going to have nothing. The worst part is that rookie league games prevent scouting with the rock-barriers.

BigFan, could you post your ID again so I could try playing with/against you sometime?

I may as well stop lurking this thread and post.

game id: roberT 759

You'll see from my profile that I'm mainly a team game player. I started in 1v1s as a gold toss. I then got into team games... tried all the different races. Enough team games as all 3 races got me comfortable to try my last few 1v1 matches in gold as a random player which has worked out well so far.

I'm up for some games anytime I'm on
