It's obviously possible...I was making a point that it is much easier, and doesn't put you that far behind. Holding off a stim/seige push is just as tough as holding off a well done 2 rax push. If you are more comfortable going hatch first than by all means do that, but I have pretty decent success with my style of going 14gas/13pool.
played some pvt just now, after i fended off about the fourth round of him sending in marine/marauder/thor, he types "you're immortal?" in chat. i don't know whether he was saying that i just won't die (having twice the bases as him and 20 gateways will give that impression) or that i should get immortals. he only leaves when i send out about a dozen void rays that i've been secretly massing and afaik were never scouted by him
thanks AK i had no idea that was an option. it's not like i said im playing when i can now before i start my summer clerkship/job/thing. staggering. (the truth is i actually enjoy the game and while i wont be playing much once i start work, i do want to learn what i can now so i can do casts and work on some other SC2 themed side projects i have going on)
either way, i made some special casts for 2+2 this morning. im uploading them overnight you guys better love them :-P.
Play the game when you aren't at your jerb. That's what I do. It's not like you have to be playing the game on hardcore hours every day to be good (note: I'm not saying I'm close to good). Maybe you need to work on your life build order.
Also, my advice comes free of charge, no need to thank me. Macro better.
now lost 2 zvzs tonight due to move commanding my army away
lol in the last one ia ctually move commanded my army for a solid 1/3 of the battle (i was seriously mashing A move A move A move A move A move A move but my comp hung ldo and it never registered until well afteer it needed to) and still crushed him but then my rallies broke (obv) and he got the privilege of engaging my army 1/2 at a time when mine was 2x bigger!
but at least im using hotkeys amirite?
think im going back to the bigass box now...
lol i love watching these replays. one before this i was up 40 supply when i attacked and move commanded my army away. this one im up 52 to 31 (!!!) harvesters at the 10 min mark
up over 50 supply at the 13 min mark
up 70 supply at the 14 min mark
then i max and decide to wait just long enough for him to max to attack. but it's ok because i instantly remax up SIXTY supply.
a toss just failed a cannon rush agaisnt me, failed the cancel teh cannons and lost 1200 resources. i droned hard the entire time and lost absolutely nothing. i then went to his base and killed 2 more probes + a couple pylons outside his base + a cannon taht was morphing that he didnt cancel. i sacrificed an overlord into his base at the 8 minute mark and saw basically the entire thing.
he expo'd (and didnt cancel it) and won the game at the 11 minute mark. the battle wasnt even remotely close. i had 3 queens, 3 spores, 3 spines, roaches, lings with speed + a 15 harvester advantage.
now i ask, who believes the above is true? did karak make it up/exaggerate it, or is it factually accurate?
set a line?
it's true of course

Reason: and it wasnt DTs either. can anyone even imagine a scenario where the zerg loses?
