hmm, interesting you mention this because I thought that I messed up my droning bigtime at one point. Didn't realize that it was that long either, I mean the whole match was what, 25-30min or so? That's about if not more than half of the match. I made terrible mistakes, should've gotten hydralisk den, got infestors then FG+hydras+queen, his mutas would've been toast, then I would've moved from there A lesson to be learned for next time

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?
1. I have a similar issue with spending. I get close to saturation then I have thousands of minerals/gas that I'm not spending. Whenever that happens, I've started just laying down more hatcheries, more rax, gateways, etc.... basically anything that requires minerals. You'll be surprised how powerful marines can be when stimmed and upgraded, so, keep pumping and pressuring with them
2. Well, you want to see their tech path, so, that you can get a counter for it. If you see me massing roaches, marauders or stalker/immortals are the best counters. If I see you going MM, I'll be going slings+blings, etc.... Basically, see what they are doing and react accordingly. If they go for an exp, they are down 300 or 400(depending on race), so, this is the perfect time to strike. Do you play T? I'm assuming that you have an idea of other enemies' units, as in their hp/damage/abilities, etc.... so just learn the different counters. You can also use scan to scout which is nice, gotta sack an OL or hope that I can get a changeling into their base to scout

ID: Bigfan 707 Hope to see you one sometime

If you guys are going to play some games right now, let me know, so I can obs/stream!

The problem with scouting for me is, if we're more than two minutes into the game, my worker will get attacked by their basic unit as soon as he gets up the ramp, often before then. The next time I get a good scouting unit is...

Ghosts are good, banshees are good, oh hold the phone... SCAN.

And what you do is you go attack their unit with one of your SCVs when they do that. They'll either leave or die.

Katana,

You don't have to get all the way into the base to get good scouting info. When I play as zerg, just sending one ling to die at the ramp gives me good info on army composition and size.

T has scan which is amazing for revealing the area without losing an units(mules doesn't count). Likewise, ghosts and banshees work well to scout provided you don't start attacking them. As for your worker getting attacked with theirs right away, hold down shift, press M and then click around their base in a circle until you can't queue up anymore. Make sure to put to a group as well, I put 9. Then when its done the circles XD, you can just click 9 move around base again and then go back to your own
