Patch 1.4.0 announced in PTR

only because its an easy build, the best terrans iv seen are capable of rushing thors/battleships by 5-10 mins
Please show me a replay of at least 1 pro-level player who rushes to thors + battlecruisers without playing a bronze opponent. . .

TvZ == Marine + Siege Tank + Few Thors against mass mutalisks + Ghosts against infestors
TvP == (MMM) Marine Marauder Medivac + Ghosts for emps + Viking against collosi + Raven for pdd or banshees
TvT == Siege Tank + Marine + Vikings for air control

I didnt slap you, i high 5'd your face.
i was only meaning siege type, not specifically thors and battle cruisers, and i usually play zerg, and the only terran that beat me are the ones that go advanced tech not spam

suga suga how'd you get so fly?
just curious GFreak but what league are you?

and burrowing infestors to mind control the units on the other side is just useless as by the time your infestors get to the other side the battle wouldve finished and the terran probably wouldve won if your missing just that few infestors.

Avoid, if at all possible.
Sieged tanks have a range of 13, neural parasite has a range of 7. I don't see how keeping burrowed roaches would protect them though.

It could potentially work since terran don't usually have permanent detection but instead focus on scans mostly.
The problem is that the moment the Infestors unburrow, they will be shelled to death instantly by the siege tanks.

I only really play custom
and if i use infestors, usually i dont, i keep them ahead of my army, so they dont have to spend time getting in place, and if i can get some type of higher ground and neural every tank before they kill my infestors i win the fight almost every single time im successfull, usually there is some type of higher ground nearby

it requires a lot of good microing but generally if you can get gold on all the challenges its more than possible

I disagree. The tanks aren't waiting for the infestors to unburrow before they shoot. Move in with roaches, tanks shoot, unborrow and mind control. The cooldown of the attack is enough to do it. (I play zerg as well)


Just as a general notice, the infestors are mainly used for their infested terrans, then comes fungal and on last place is the neural parasite.

Why do you insist on nerualparasiting anyway ? There are tons of unused units in the current methagame. It is not a flaw by far. In every strategy game there is a number of builds which are just simply better than the rest, and they are used the most because people want to win.
Blizzard can't make every unit viable without limiting the player's options (for example you choose MMM in the beginning of the game and you can't transition out of it, you can make vikings but no tanks, thors and the likes) Why is generally mixing every unit in the game bad for balance ? Look at the 1-1-1 and it's efficiency against the protoss.

Having units who are not used as often is the price for not having heroes. In warcraft III your hero had a BIG impact on the unit composition you will have (for example Mountain king meant footman-rifle, Arch, meant the priest,sorc,spellbreaker + upgrade combo [I have played a bit of wc3, but enough to get to a decent position in the ladder and abuse the human race])

Actually most of my comment was to cornface ^_^

I am pretty sure that after legacy of the void SCII will be in it's full glory- with more units, builds and possibilities than ever. Still, this is some years from now ^_^

    You would probably have to take a loan to get the Rice cert it is like 14l
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I was hoping you were going to say you wanted to be a cook and wished to open up a Food Truck there are so many opportunities for that here
  • The Helper The Helper:
    you can only open the bar if you sell food and a food truck in the parking lot counts
  • The Helper The Helper:
    here in houston
  • The Helper The Helper:
    most bars are struggling to build food prep and even some I know are doing there own food trucks
  • The Helper The Helper:
    but yeah man you should come to Houston there is so much more opportunity here than San Antonio. Just look at all the homeless people on the Riverwalk and downtown there you cannot even walk down the street without getting mobbed them
  • The Helper The Helper:
    check out this place apparently it is the best roommate site out there roommates.com lol
  • Varine Varine:
    The homeless people reminded me of New York
  • Varine Varine:
    I'll check it out, my lease expires in like a few months so I need to figure something out.
  • Varine Varine:
    I tried to open a food truck in Sandpoint a few years ago but the city said no, then like two years later they passed new laws to encourage it and gave them all fucking tax breaks and shit. And at that point I didn't have enough money to go buy one so I was way too late to the game once other cities realized they could just bring their existing truck there, or sell their brick and mortar.
  • Varine Varine:
    I do like food trucks though, they're way more fun than restaurants and usually I also get some of that tip money there.
  • Varine Varine:
    Restaurants are really hard if you don't have a back up source of income to fund them sometimes, in my experience most owners either got really really lucky, had existing money that allowed them to buy an already successful one, or they have family money to fall back on for loans. It's few and far between to see very inspiring success stories where the person actually got it through hard work and perseverance. I thought about opening one lots and I always just end up not thinking it'll work. I would much rather just find someone that has that money and go work for them
  • The Helper The Helper:
    i am not talking about opening a brick and mortar I am talking about food trucks though I have seen some brick and mortar mexican places open up during covid that are doing good because there food is awesome!
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Food trucks are killing out here because Bars cannot open unless they sell food and the governor ok'd the use of a food truck in front as serving food
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Just not enough food trucks
  • The Helper The Helper:
    a buddy of mine just opened up a food truck and he is killing it but he is a great cook and has awesome food right in the middle of the pandemic too food trucks are immune to pandemic because they are take out in Texas you will always be able to get take out or delivery
  • The Helper The Helper:
    He is in the different food facebook groups in houston and posts videos of him making his food
  • The Helper The Helper:
    he is killing it
  • jonas jonas:
    @Varine with the restaurants, there surely is a lot of luck and hard work but most restaurants fail because they suck. Flair isn't right, economics not well thought through, food is mediocre or sucks, location is bad, etc. If you're thinking about opening one, make sure you're looking at the stories of those that would be playing at your level, don't let your hopes be dragged down by all the subpar restaurants out there.
  • jonas jonas:
    I'm a bit worried about the future of data science, there's an influx of incompetent people hired by incompetent managers, that can't last. But I'm sure smart data scientists will always be useful and hireable. Same as smart security people.
  • jonas jonas:
    My sister in law worked in a vegan food truck, the owners were also making a killing, added several trucks and opened two restaurants over 5 years
  • Ghan Ghan:
    The CompTIA stuff is pretty much crap unfortunately. The places that ask for those low-level certs aren't likely places you want to work. For IT you really want a degree, but in the meantime you need to figure out some way to learn the skills. Cybersecurity is really hot right now so competition is fierce.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I realized I don't have anything much to say, other than "Good luck!". Compared to other places, I'm just very lucky we didn't have a lot of surges of cases coming in.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    My daughter just got back from school at Georgetown TX, outside of Austin and said there were 100 cases in the last week but she also said nobody was wearing a mask anywhere so people mask up and stay safe!
