One of my teammates in a 4v4 I just played rushed for carriers, getting a quick gold and safely getting a bunch of carriers. When the enemy ball finally hit, though, his carriers sit idly by in front of his base. He had the perfect opportunity to flank the enemy colossus line and help us win the fight, but his carriers just sat there unused. I frequently see this **** in team games and tried explaining that he needs to use his army to help the team and how it's important to combine forces in team games, especially 4s. He tells me to stfu, and when I persist he begins attacking my base and I his, lol. The game was over at that point though.
I would play random if not for zerg. I am just too unfamiliar with the race and bad at larva injecting/spawning units from hatcheries, and don't really want to sit down and practice it.
when i played random in team games this was the biggest problem for me too. terran just making marinesLOL (plus it was my main race at the time) and toss just 4gate LOL then make colossi LOL or VRs LOL, but zerg is HARD BRO
but now i play zerg so it's ok
in all seriousness if you aer going for an early rush strat, just overpool + in base hatch and make speedlings and/or banes. if the game gets longer, just take expos, beg your teammates for gas, and mass mutalisks. also get +1 attack and +2 attack ASAP, unless you are involved in a lot of muta v. muta wars, then get carapace first.
As in 1v1s, blink into storm = pretty decent against mutas.
Yeah I can manage alright if I mass blink stalkers, (and I'm forced to if I want to live, unless someone competent on the team opened with phoenix/muta) but even with them I'm kinda confined to defending my main and nat and can't offer much help to allies. So it really forces everyone on your team to go into defensive mode and make lots of stationary defenses and AA units.
BRAG: IT IS KARAK BUILD A NEW DESKTOP THAT DOESNT SUCK AND CAN PLAY SC2 SO I DONT HAVE TO PLAY ON MY ****TY 12 INCH LAPTOP ANYMORE DAY
BEAT: I RUN WORSE THAN ANYONE EVER AT MAKING THINGS WORK WITH PEECEES EVEN THO IM ABOUT AS PC-LITERATE AS ONE CAN GET WITHOUT AN IT DEGREE
VARIANCE: THERE'S JUTS NO ****ING WAY THIS THING WORKS FIRST, SECOND OR THIRD TRY CAUSE MLIH
PC's are easy to assemble. Just make sure you buy components that play nice with each other.
I've built 3 top-end PCs in the past year for myself and fellow nerds. All of them went off without a hitch(no RMAs), and any "OMG IT DOESN'T WORK!" problems were solved by plugging in things that we forgot to plug in.
Beat: on the first one, an hour of google, component swapping, etc etc etc was solved by the LEAST computer savvy of us saying, "Isn't that supposed to be plugged in?" (as he points to the CPU power cable.
I built my current desktop that I'm on. Took me 6 hours. Put the heatsink on the CPU on the motherboard, screwed down the motherboard, hooked up all the wires, etc. etc. Turned my computer on for the first time and found out the heatsink was facing the wrong way. There was no way to know which way the fan would spin.
Took another half hour to unplug everything, unscrew everything, unscrew the motherboard, etc. etc. Then about another hour putting everything back together and trying to figure out where everything went again.
Turned the computer on again and it said my key code for my OS was already used. I was like...FFFFFFFFFFFFFFF!!! Luckily I was able to get around it and fix it over the phone without any trouble.
For the most part you're going to be where you were before.
I played my placement match and won. I checked the guy's stats and he was in Gold last season. He was now in Platinum after like 3 games.
I am 2-3ish in the new season (lolkeepingtrackoflossesaments) and I'm still in Gold. I played ~12 games during the ladder lock and I was something like 9-3 and towards the end I started playing Platinum players. My point is that I'm still in Gold.
Just have to keep playing and you'll move up when the system thinks you should move up.
