Frustrated that I just early expanded, held off a counter attack, was so far ahead, and then lost to mass marines. So frustrating.

Looking back on it I probably should have just teched up to Colossi or storm. Instead I went with zealots/stalkers/sentries/immortals.

I was trying to put early pressure on because scouting is my #1 problem, imo, but all it really did was caused me to lose a few units. I guess I did see a few times that all he had was marines so that should have helped me, but I suck at turning information into something I can use.

Yeah I'm bad. Good thing I can't see my losses. haha 1-2 today, with that win being my placement match.

It's not even worth it. I didn't even watch the replay myself, yet. Too frustrated to go back and see it all over again.

I think I just put too much pressure on, I was too aggressive. I didn't counter his marines correctly. I was thinking mass stalkers would be good, but it wasn't. I always have it in the back of my mind that I'm going to see one thing and then on my next move I'm going to see something different. I don't quite understand what keeps someone on a certain tech path and how to trust that.

Really I should have just teched up more, at least to Colossi and then went and attacked him. He kept scanning my base. Unless he expanded to a different spot, I don't know how he kept up with me.

It's not a big deal. It's just a game. I'm over it already.

EDIT: Damn, so much fail by me. I was right. As soon as he killed off my scout probe he immediately put down 3 more barracks and just went mass marines. Never had upgrades. I even told myself when I was scouting that I wasn't seeing any gas, but I never really let my brain process that. I could have slaughtered this scrub so easily if I would have just went to Colossi. I can't believe I lost an easy game like that. It's like I gave up the opportunity for a free win. ...... And he never expanded.

A truly well done mass marines almost always kills a toss expo IME. You basically must 1 base colossi and just FF your ramp until your ready to move out and win.

Just had a satisfying win on the bounce back. Took a breather and came back.

PvZ on Xelnaga.

Tries poking in my base with a bunch of lings but I had a zealot blocking. He tried again and I just missed the FF. Then I knew he was getting hydras so I went to Colossi. He poked in again with lings and I got the FF money shot off on my ramp so he couldn't retreat and I killed all of his lings.

Had an observer over top of his hydras the entire game. He rallied his units in one of the chokes to the entrance of the expo so I attacked him and he quit immediately. I didn't even get the opportunity to fully attack him.

I like when I see hydras because it makes me immediately think of colossi.

Build marines. When you think you should transition, get stim then build more marines.

I'll help you with zerg if you want, do you have vent or skype? I have extensive knowledge of control groupings and hotkeying.

I heard the actual outcome of your "placement" match doesn't really matter, & that you get placed based on mmr/hidden rating.
