Nice game, it was very ... different.
But the zerg player was playing pretty poor in the mid-game. His attack with roaches and zerglings was incredibly ineffective and he continued to throw his units into it.

I feel like he could have easily run a bunch of his lings into your main while your army was at your third. Split it up, sent some into second some into main.
Then you would have been forced to either move your main army, split, or hope that your next warp in could deal with both forces of lings (which it probably wouldnt).

But nevertheless, nice game with a very very close end.

Played this very interesting match against a terran player yesterday. He went for a quick expand, i scouted it and wanted to punish him with a strong one base push.
He saw what i wanted to do and threw down a bunch of bunkers.
Watch the replay to see what i did against it.

First of all, your drone count was really low the entire game. Watch the replay, keep in mind you should have about 25 drones per base for a good saturation, you expansion had barely any drones.

Next thing is, you took your third over your natural which was really hard to defend for you. You couldnt protect both main and third when he attacked and that became a major problem.

Another note: You need better scouting. You should have some overlords ready to suicide into his base to get a hold of what he is producing. The cloaked banshees for example could have been easily spotted beforehand.
And when you see him go for cloaked banshees. Get the overseer, its only 50/50 and it would have helped you keep your hydra den.

But on the other hand, i dont think hydra ling was a good choice here.
The infestors were pretty effective after all, he seemed not to be a skilled enough player to deal with that, but, you saw he is going hellion heavy. He didnt have any tanks. Go roaches. Roaches would have stomped his army, although he had a few marauders (for no apparent reason?) you could have easily defended your bases with some roaches and harrassed with those infestors at the same time.
And you already had burrow, you can burrow your workers if you are getting harrassed by hellions or banshees. Or if the banshees are cloaked and you have no detection there, burrow your queens, safe their hp.
At least force him to scan and waste a mule.

Some replays of me again. Of course only me winning, you know, i am too good to lose any games. Or if i lose, i pretend it never happened.

Anyways, i think those are some solid games, a standard TvP, a fairly standard TvT (that opponent was crazy, wtf was his plan?) and a really really exiting PvP.
That pvp was amazing, i went, now, listen, one gateway into expansion! And he went 4 gate.
Guess who won. oh, wait, you already know! So watch the replay for some SICK micromanagement.

I wouldnt say most players but there really are quite a few.
It actually was a nice game, i enjoyed it alot and i gave him a gg after it was over. I sometimes dont understand how people can make themself look so bad by returning a gg with bad manners.

    My grandmother just passed away, she was 95. I might be going to Florida for a week.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I have a buddy in Florida who has an extra office space for me with a computer so I can do anything so likely I will be going up there wednesday or thursday
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Let me know if there's anything I can do to help.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    thank you Ghan
  • jonas jonas:
    Sorry for your loss

    I'm sorry to hear that bro
  • Varine Varine:
    Not to distract but is anyone aware of any software to help visually impaired people interact with their PC?
  • Varine Varine:
    Also what's the best way to ship a PC? Should I just wrap the fuck out of it in the case or put the components in static bags and wrapped up individually?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    The GPU is the biggest danger typically.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Some of the pre-built vendors use expanding foam to fill in the case and secure the GPU. Otherwise it might be best to remove it and ship it separately.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Similar if the machine has a large tower CPU cooler installed. Those can experience huge forces and destroy the socket during shipment if they are heavy.
  • Varine Varine:
    So mainly just the heavier things that jut out? I'm planning on pulling out the SSD's too and anything that I don't have well secured. I'll probably be good leaving the motherboard and PSU screwed in there though if I bundle it up?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Yeah, I'd expect those to be fine. It's mainly the heavy stuff that is also long/tall where dropping the case would cause it to exert a ton of force on the mount. The motherboard will be fine screwed into the board unless the case itself is somehow severely damaged.
  • Varine Varine:
    I have the original packaging for it, so I was going to just put it back in there
  • Varine Varine:
    I don't think I have the boxes for the components though and so I don't want to have a bunch of loose shit bouncing around
  • The Helper The Helper:
    damn I just read that lol
  • The Helper The Helper:
    when i read up and saw spray in foam I was like oh shit
  • The Helper The Helper:
    going to do the last controller giveaway in the NUON Dome forum because I just cannot sell them since I got them for free from a deceased NUON Legend. It is my last one from that.
