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.

  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    Lmao thats somethin right there.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    How far back were you looking at?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    But yes, that was me.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Do you think I am looking back in the forums for this stuff? LOL, no, I find these posts in the Members Online section or the stats - all these old posts I am bumping and moving around are what people are actually looking at on the website
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Interesting.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    hey Tom your Burrito news is going viral by TheHelper.net standards LOL

  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am going to do one more News Forum like the Weird News but this one is Science News for all the cool science and technology articles in the Archive
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Hmm, do I need to start posting some of the Science and Technology news to this new section in the future?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Or do we need to move the news to their respective sections once the threads are old enough, read to be put into the News Archive?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    The 2nd thing
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I have been moving stuff from the current Headline news like a year old and stuff over when I see it in the logs or members online but mostly I have been moving stuff from the Archives
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It is possible to automate it so that instead of moving to Archive if it has the Science, technology or sci tech tag that it gets archived there instead. I am considering a new Weird News Tag
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Please do. I'll try to tag the news appropriately when I get the chance.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    The new Discourse forum software we are moving to next does alot with the tags and also hashtags
  • The Helper The Helper:
    OK I found the source of your burrito post stuff it is from Reddit and possibly a facebook post too but definitely reddit
