I should totally rage more and say such things... and yes that's what I implied by the comment tongue.gif.

Yeah I should have gone medivacs. I think that's my most under used unit and for no reason.

Yee, I mean nothing by it, just a similarity I've noticed.

Moar Medvas tho.

Just for fun and nostalgia of the old Starcraft 64 days, I just played an AI game with fun in mind. I went 1v2 on Easy, made 4 or 5 expansions and made a fleet of carriers to wipe everything out.
Hope I didn't make myself stupider in the process.

jedi showed me the good process of keeping all my rax in a hotkey to keep production upkeep, but that process seems more difficult for zerg when keeping larvae on multiple hatcheries. Is the solution just to have a hotkey for each queen by each hatchery so you can center on it? I'm looking for something I can just do really quickly, mostly by keyboard.

Have all hatcheries on 1 hotkey, then each queen in another.

4 would be all my hatches, then 5-8 would be each queen.

4 -> S, selects all larvae from all hatcheries. 4SDDDDDDDD or 4SZZZZZZZ

Medivacs are such awesome units as well, a transport AND a healer. I find that in my games against P, they are needed a lot mid game+

Personally, I do 1 for hatcheries, 2 for queens. Then click 1s(d for drone, z for zergling, etc....). For spawning larvae, click 2v(I think it's v, not c) and then click hatchery on minimap. Repeat depending on number of hatcheries. What will happen is that queens that are closest to the hatcheries you clicked with spawn larvae, so, if you keep at least one queen within a close distance of hatchery(far doesn't matter either though), they'll walk back to hatchery and spawn larvae on it

Don't forget 8 for extractor.. or was it 9?





For Zerg I do 1 melee + ranged, 2 fliers, 3 casters, 4 all hatcheries, 5 main hatch, 6 nat hatch, 7 3rd, ect ect.

For larva I just hit 55clickV ect.

XD
Reason for that was that my scouting drone was at 9, brought back to base and decided to go for an extractor, so, as a result, 9 became an extractor, lol.

So I started my own stream up: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/vdeku

Going to be playing as Zerg on the ladder, I'll probably post here when I start streaming.

Nice, although I do want to ask:
What is it with everyone and streaming? I mean once your games are done, then they'll have to wait for the next day. Much better idea to have a replay and then cast it and explain what was going on through your mind at that point, etc....
