Yeah, that's what has been happening. But it's still impossible to win if one teammate is teching straight to carriers while the other one is solo baneling busting the shared wall. But I just got promoted to platinum from silver didn't know that was possible. Was afraid I'd have to play like 100 games to get there.
I think having observers in money matches opens up angles. It's probably better to just post the replay afterwards, and also to escrow in advance (and maybe have the one acting as escrow observe just so the loser can't pretend like he didn't know it wasn't a practice pre-round or something fishy).
blistering sands recently got put on my block list because of getting matched against zerg every ****ing time i played on that map and they rape via the backdoor rocks.
I like to go FE with forge on Blistering Sands, if he goes roaches and tries to bust your backdoor make sure that you just make like 6 canons there. Also I like to put up stargates and cb out 2-3 VRs.
I like that map because the gold is blocked by rocks and the third is not that easy to take for the zerg.
