That was a lot of fun... just caught up on some GSL... some nice Terran matches but Protoss seem so powerful once they get going...

k I was just in a FFA game with a couple friends and two of them raged when I was telling the rest what unit they were massing. What's so wrong with that?

poroboszcz - Thanks for the game and the tips, will definitely work on all the points you have shown me... (I am supposed to be sleeping now but the freaking night shifts have scrambled my internal clock ... lets see if a spot of tea does the trick...)

OMG GUYS. How do you make bunkers fly? I can't believe that they can fly, I never knew. I can't seem to find the upgrade to get bunkers to fly though. Can someone please help me?

Hehe xD

That's something Doom and I have talked about a few times on AIM. We were talking about mechanics and mid/end game macro.

The Protoss Warp-Gate mechanics are sooo hard to master (since you can't que when things are @ ~90%). If you miss it by a few seconds every time, its almost suicidal.

I think this is why Nony said his mechanics in BW was sooo much better than in SC2, even though SC2 has MBS (Multiple Building Selection)

I did some math and if you're consistently missing a warp-gate cycle by even 10 seconds, the food skews hard. Assuming you have 6gates, missing it @ 10s, you're down 12 food every 3 cycles (1.5 minutes) which is 48food in 6minutes. 100food army vs 148 food army is no-bueno. (10seconds is being lenient)

After I saw Nony being straight ruthless and criticize the **** out of HuK's macro and other fellow Toss' on the TL Featured Stream. I went to my replay packs of pros and just watched the WG-Cycles. I realized how much smoother stuff could be cause they be missing it by a lot too.

Even though I hate Zerg, I'll be rooting for you vdek. I think you can hit 3k, I mean you are zerg after all.. =P <33

Forget ratio, as long as you're staying 52%+ you're fine. Look @ top200 sc2 ranks.

I guess as long as you are at equal or higher food than your opponent, that's all that matters in the game
