haha there's this one guy who watches my stream whenever im on. he's not from 2+2, says he has a daughter about to graduate from college (so i assume he's older, and he doesn't like my rap music) and likes to watch people play starcraft 2 because he enjoys the game but isnt good at it.

he has been watching my stream for literally YEARS (since well before i was masters back when i was super bad diamond) and makes good commentary during all my games. i gotta give him a prize or something.

like the first time i streamed after taking a 3 month break he showed back up within a week.

Beat: Been messing around trying to get FFsplit to work for hours
Brag: Finaly managed to get it to work. Can now stream in 1080p with good audio
Variance: Did it by just changing the video source which was a <1 second switch. I also probably won't use it very much in the next few days most likely.

im so unbelievably ****ing bad at this game

both these. back to back. my winrate vs terran is udner like 30%. and all the terran ****ing tears that come gushing at the beginning of every game just make me feel ******ed. is my multi-tasking just so bad that i cant win with all the "imba"

it's worth notign I HATE THE EVER LOVING ****ING **** out of cloud kingdom. i chose to unveto it last week cause of all the crying i was hearing about how zvt is imbalanced on it.

ZvZ

Karak is up a base, going ling infestor and his opponent clearly sucks.

Karak's opponent attacks with a bunch of 1/1 roaches, is turned away by walls of spines and has to go home and try to take a 3rd and catch up. Karak is on his way to 2/2, hive and lots of other fun things.

Karak just made a huge round of drones after his opponent went home.

Karak should:

A) Keep macroing, press his huge advantage and go on to certain victory.

B) Leave the game because he's bored.

C) Take his entire ling army, engage the roaches in the middle of the map while they are hugging a wall, throw the entire army away and not be able to make a new one because he just spent all his larva on drones. Then let villain come in, kill all his tech, 35 drones and massacre him on an attack that just 30 seconds earlier had no chance of working.

D) Kill himself.

Picked C. Prob shoulda picked D. Villain actually thanked me for letting him win the game.

i havent played in so long. at my vegas place there is literally no comfortable place to play.

theres 2 tables, and neither get internet reception
theres some coffee tables but it like lines up with my knees so i either have to sit hunched over which i can only do for so long, or sit cross-legged which i can also only do for so long.

need to be back home so i can play! going stir-crazy

also for my winrates, im at
52.17% ZvZ
47.44% ZvP
61.54% ZvT

thoughts? i think its kinda skewed cuz my friend plays terran and we 1v1 heaps which gives tons of practice.
feel like my ZvP is really weak. the immortal/stalker/sentry push is just so strong

i know this is heresy and i hesitate to post it but...

ive been using hydras to hold off the big 4+ immortal/sentry push. pretty good dps and more than enough time to get em out + range.

key to beating the immo/sentry pushes is to not cut drones too early. too many people just start making units at 830 and dont stop

you've got a few more rounds of drones in you then and, depending on the push they are doing, you could get up to 75ish on 3 base easy w/ macro hatch and an extra queen by time they hit. get up a few spines, some hydras, good mix of lings and a meat shield of roaches and EZ

other option is to go spire, defend under heavy spines and then take a 4th and harass with mutas when they inevitably turn home to take a 3rd. it's really hard to break an immortal/sentry 3rd on some maps even if you do have a big lead or max out much quicker.

i wouldnt recommend making any mutas until you hold off the attack unless you are interested in a base trade. that said, mutas are too far from their base (if they do the later big immo push your mutas are going to pop JUST as they get there) to do any serious damage and force a base trade where you have an advantage. just wait til they retreat, then grab a 4th (**** even a 5th if you defended efficiently) and start firing out mutas and slowly building up a big spine wall.

that said, i had a guy do a push on me on ohana last week that consisted of 6 immortals, 4 sentries and the rest pure chargelot.

i made like... 12 mutas and that was gg. lol.

And never really thought about hydras. Always just assumed they almost never were worth it. Also seen getting drop and dropping hydra/roach/ling on them of they get a ton of sentries. Never tried it but seems to counter a big sentry wall off, especially on a map like entombed
