I think Blizzard did a great job with the match making system. I'll go through periods of just destroying everyone I am playing against, then move up a one or two hundred points in the diamond division and everyone has a counter for my go-to strategies. Then I get owned for a while until I can figure out how to step my game up and once I do I'll start destroying everyone again and so on.

It does suck though to go from those high periods of "yeah I'm the bomb, no one can beat me" to "goddamn I just lost 8 games in a row". However, that is what forces me to get better so I can't really complain.

On another note, it is absurd how much difference there is in skill level in the diamond league. I'll own a 600 point diamond player, go 50-50 against 800 point players, and just get dominated by 900+.

I'd really like to see them revamp the ranking system somehow (just for vanity and competition). I'd have no problem with 10+ leagues that really break everyone down based on skill. It is not right that I'm in the same "league" as people like trump and idra when I'm still getting supply blocked every game and making other macro mistakes all the time. It isn't really that exciting when I have to look forward to breaking 900 points as my next goal. It would be way cooler if there were many leagues working all the way up to "pro" level.

I think everyone knows that the ranking system is flawed. It's just a loose grouping system. That's why Blizzard has been releasing top 200 lists.

The ranking system isn't terrible but certainly flawed.

The whole "division system" where people are grouped into 100's is completely ******ed

Yessss... Finally got massive new insight into the PvZ dynamic.

Figured out some key time windows to decide when to "counter tech" when I figure out zergs plan.

Wheter it be a zealot push, blink stalker push, fast expand or quick collosi..

Never realized the effectiveness of blink stalkers + early gateway push vs zerg.. man.

warp prisms are the most under utilized unit in the game imo

i would be surprised if 50% of bronze/silver/gold players know how they work/use them

I find them really hard to use because they are so fragile..
I always get them sniped and lose more than I succesfully harass

man blink stalkers, i have no chance against them as zerg if protoss micros them good.

I mean hydras are supposed to counter but they don't , zerg needs to counter them by making zerglings with 2 different sets of hotkeys and infestors, i'm only a silver player i can't handle that kind of play

I miss being able to play against noobs.

Nowadays I go like 1:1 in W/L and it's frustrating

Not really sure where this should go, but I just thought of it.

Does anyone know of any replays (Youtube) where people replay their own replays and talk about what they did?

For example, Machinima Respawn you see people replay their matches of MW2 and then add their commentary about why they did what they did, or they just generally talk about stuff.

Is there anything like this for SC2? I'm kind of tired of just watching matches commentated by a third-party. I'd like to watch videos of people replaying their own replays and talking about why they did what they did, etc.

I knew this was going to get suggested, but I'd like to see something that gets uploaded.

Do you know of something like that or not?

If Trump played Protoss I'd probably watch more.

Very useful in the early game and makes rushing much more effective.

I would have probably left that in it's own thread if it were me.

The patch notes thread is a repost of a post made in the imba thread.

Regardless, I've been doing it when I have nothing to do early on. 7% can have a pretty huge snowballing effect, and it's relatively easy to do.

It wouldn't surprise me if Blizz stopped it though.

I play random.... TvZ is completely broken. THe other match ups are ok.

When I get T vs. Z I almost always completely roll them with ease.

When I get Z vs. T it's an epic uphill struggle even if they are terrible.

is there a trick to make the screen zoom out farther? 200/200 battles would be much easier to deal with if i could actually see all my units imo

i am so tilted right now. i totally wiped out this guy's main base w/ banelings and speedlings. he managed to lift off a few buildings which apparently included a command center and he ran to the island expansions and threw up infinite missile turrets and somehow built up a massive army of vikings and beat me. grrrrrrrrrr i'm so ****ing bad at this game its so TILTINGGGGGGGG.
