I'm guessing soon the standard PvZ opening will include 4 queens. That's the only solution I can see right now.

I think the phoenix void ray rush isnt used enough. One phoenix, one voidray... phoenix lifts the queen and everything else is free kills.

I've already seen protoss build 3 or 4 fast gateways for deception. Z sees the gateways, Z thinks he better prepare for a ground battle. Turns out the hidden stargate was the immediate threat. Guy did this to me today. My overlord saw a bunch of gates so I immediately made some roaches and spinecrawlers. Instead of a ground attack 3 phoenixes showed up and killed my queens. The gateways only produced enough ground units to defend the P ramp. Very annoying.

11 game winning streak... really tried to work on my macro a bit more... first time I went up to having 3 bases... problem is I still ended the end with 4000plus minerals and gas... but as I denied my opponent his own expansions it was a war of attrition... I also have to focus on playing with tanks ... not doing that enough :/

Any comments... I know I have far to go... but I do learn (slowly )

Hey guys.

Will be joining in the chat channel likely tomorrow. Was hoping to find some help as a zerg player. I'm stuck in bronze in everything Me and a friend are 6th in our Bronze league and it keeps pitting us against higher tear players but we always fall at that hurdle.

I maybe need to start playing 1v1's more often, they are actually quite intimidating since you don't have another person to fight with and discuss plans etc... But yeah, if anyone can ever spend some time chatting to me to help me atleast try move up to silver in something I'd be happy

Of course. The overclock.net channel on battle.net will be the place to talk / play now, so join us.



Vdek uploading a TvZ replay of a Z who kinda does your style. Very close game and to be honest with you I've been playing pretty awful the last few days ( feel like my vision is blurry too lol ). My macro is off, and I was just playing very sloppy. Good news is I medivac in it . You may enjoy it.

Stop laddering for a while. Play only custom games against people in higher leagues. I stalled out in silver league and decided not to ladder until I got better. I played only diamond and some plats for a week. Those guys still kick my ass usually but I've learned a lot from playing them. The game is so much faster against diamond opponents and it makes you faster when you play them. Save the replays of good builds that your diamond opponets used against you and copy them. I just started laddering again this morning and silver and gold leaguers look so SLOW now. I beat a gold protoss an hour ago and it felt like the guy was moving in slow motion. All those games against diamonds have redefined my concepts of what's fast and what's slow.
