  • That comp in reply to Exactly by LordMatsu

    #
    That comp is only ever made in reaction to swarm hosts. Against any even remotely aggressive/harassy style that comp is almost impossible to get out.

  • 2 base? in reply to ZvZ +1 Roach Defence by BUNGHOLE

    #
    If they're on two base, don't drone your third, just use it for the larvae, pump roaches non stop, if they have more and you have an excess of minerals build spines not lings.All assuming you know it's a +1 ...

    Thanks, been looking back through emails that hasn't actually happened in a while. It used to happen a lot more :)
  • Notification emails

    #
    Did anyone else get 9 (NINE!) email notifications for redbull going live from manfred? Only realised the cool coincidence once I started typing this, but it is still a bit annoying.
  • Well in reply to And should I get lair+roach speed? by DeepShine

    #
    It depends on the all in tbh, it's something you have to judge. Safest is usually to delay lair and just make units until the first attack hits, stay on creep. If you're gonna hold it ok - start lair ...
  • Scouting in reply to Life ZvP in daily 660 by DeepShine

    #
    The key to stopping those 2 base all ins is scouting. The "correct" response varies massively depending on what you scout. I think I can give some answer for the ones you have mentioned,For the 1 or 2 gas immortal ...
  • Replays? in reply to Help with Swarm Host/Hydralisk by Wyrm

    #
    I've not actually experimented with swarmhosts very much, but i imagine the hardest thing to deal with will be drops. Some replays would help :P
  • Good Luck in reply to Help Developing a new Strat by Fivepath

    I wish you luck in this, I imagine i'll be quite hard to make work. Things I imagine will be of particular difficulty:Ling bane all ins on small maps and maps with hard to wall off naturalsTaking and keeping a ...
  • Not tried that in reply to Mutas still got it. by Fivepath

    #
    I can see that it could very likely work against a 2 base voidray all in but there are also two other very popular voidray styles:Early aggro (like gate expand into 3/4 gate) into mass turtling with voidrays1 gate 1 ...
  • Man in reply to Quasarprintf's stream by printf

    #
    You are on EU right (maybe not looking at your profile, I was pretty sure I'd seen you say that somewhere)? I'd absolutely LOVE to practice my cannon rush defence (and my vP in general) if you feel like it.
  • What if in reply to There's not just an perfect comp vs voidrays by Abathur

    #
    Queen swarmhost viper I'm sure is VERY effective. But it's also (at least the safe variants) incredibly boring. So what if we zergs want to beat protosses without playing the most boring style of anything in any game ever
  • It is true in reply to Forcing a longer gaem with roach Baneling by Fivepath

    #
    I agree, that you can definitely have a super safe build to open in ZvZ and can feel comfortable against early attacks, in fact I used to to go gasless with a really early wall off a little while ago ...
  • No in reply to failsafe? by DeltaLoc

    #
    Quite simply , your opponent could always go for a ling baneling all in and then the outcome of that all in will decided the game (most of the time at least). So no you can't force a longer game.
  • I was in a similar situation in reply to Does any one like ZvZ? by DeltaLoc

    #
    I really hated the fact in ZvZ that if you wanted to play a longer game it wasn't up to you at all, if one person decided to ling bane all in that's the entire game. More so than other ...
  • If you were to do that in reply to And then the one void ray wins the game by DaveSprite

    #
    You should skip shield upgrades on the immortals too, because nobody gets 3 forges :P

    What race are you playing?
  • Thanks :) in reply to I love this response by SteppeLively

    the trick is to do stupid stuff you'd not do before hand. Helps that I know I got demoted largely due to mmr decay too (with the help of a losing streak a while ago).
