Day[9] Daily #737 - Life vs MMA


We conclude the 4 part series detailing Life's road to win Blizzcon with his final match against MMA!  Though this series might be considered relatively "cheesy" and "banelingish," the match showcases how Life is one of the few Zergs to identify consistent timing windows against Terran and exploit them to the fullest.

Q&A With Day[9]

  • If you were MMA wouldn't you try to prepare to play against life and anticipate the consistant 3 hatch and 6 queen build that life performs? You would think that MMA would be able to think of ways to counter that by pressuring the expansions with something
  • The first game from both part 1 and part 2. I didn't feel much difference between them. What would the ling offensive and 6 queens defensive be weak against? And what scouting information should make you change strategy?
  • From what I have seen Life relies on his zerglings and banelings for almost every game. why wouldn't MMA know this and play heavy air unites?
  • With life's style winning blizzcon do you think that it would be a style that zerg players will be inclined to adapt or would it be more of a one off style that just worked.
