I passed out after I said I had work to do Karak...just woke up now. Living in the real world is exhausting. I'm probably going to grind all day once I write this test, so...if you want to kick my ass later let me know.
BEAT: STILL TOOK ME 2 200 SUPPLY ARMIES EVEN THO I HAD A 2/2 UPGRADE ADVANTAGE
VARIANCE: THE WAY IS FIND A VILLAIN ******ED ENOUGH TO MAKE NOTHING BUT COLOSSI AND VOID RAYS AND LIKE 40 ZEALOTS.... SO THE DEATH BALL WAS ALMOST ENITRELY VOID RAYS AND COL
HERE IT IS:
MAKE 12 CORRUPTORS
MAKE SOME ROACHES
MAKE SOME HYDRAS
FIND HIS ARMY
REALIZE HE JUST HAS VOID RAYS AND COL LEFT WITH LIKE 20 ZEALOTS
HIT C FOR A REALLY LONG TIME
HIT R FOR A SOMEWHAT SHORTER TIME
FIND HIS ARMY
How likely do you think this build is going to get nerfed/buffed out of playability from a zerg perspective? Thats my absolutely fav build .
there is no better feeling that containing a terran to 2 bases, taking 5 yourself... making a 200 supply army of entirely 2/2 banelings and 2/1 mutas and then a moving the banelings in
i was typing "BOOM BOOM BOOM BRIGHTER THAN TEH MOON MOON MOON" as all his **** was exploding, but he rage quit before i could get it out
plan was to remax to a pure 200 ultra army. sad i didnt get to :-(.
Finally fixed my desktop after 3 months away from this game. OH god this is gonna be painful. Still somehow ranked 35th in my diamond division. Power creep seems immense from what I've gathered. B-net used to be party poker circa 2004 and now it's party poker 2010.
Well theres are pretty big thread on TL where Artosis and Idra say the build is definitely imbalanced and most people in the 800+ reply thread agree with them so far.
Yea, because they don't have an agenda at all. And none of those people are blindly following them. Zergs(read: zergs of blizz/tl forums) are notorious whiners.
Seriously it's viewed that way because people fail to adjust. Is it strong, yes? But look at the cost. You basically have to get a third base up to make it effective. Look at the replays of games you lose vs this build and look at army value when the fight happens. He's gonna be significantly ahead in spending, notably in gas.
There are other ways to play this game, just don't be so stubborn. You can go muta/ling. Just keep the mutas alive as long as you can. Do damage in and around his base. Force phoenix/stalker to keep the colo/vr numbers down. Then when you have macroed enough while keeping the toss on 2 bases, you can remax when he pushes out on a different unit comp. The toss will be left with units that he doesn't want. Yea muta/ling is bad whatever, but you can use it to macro up and force a unit comp that is not void ray/colo.
I've seen pvz go like that a huge percentage of the time on streams lately.

Everybody was. It used to be speed ray colossus with nothing else. Taking away flux vanes hurt that build a lot.
i've found lots of ppl who play custom games seem to be dicks.. like if it's the first time you play a mod and you don't know wtf you're doing, expect everyone on your team to call you a "noob", or call you "****"... then you check out their 1v1 ranks and they're all bronze leaguers :>
Last night I had a ladder game vs terran. Thought my computer was crapping out on me since my my group of 100 lings seemed a little slow that game. Didn't realize until this morning that I didn't research ling speed that entire game. I could of won that game much quicker if only had I researched it. sigh
