perhaps, it just reminded me of warcraft 3 where it was way too easy to defend yourself from early aggression imo
Well, that's how the direction of the game is headed anyways. Terran usually can't make any aggressive moves off a 1 rax FE until 9:30 anyways (2 medivac timing) and any aggressive protoss move has already been figured out for the most part, leading to the 1 gate FE. I greatly dislike the fact that terran has a plethora of builds to choose from, some hard to scout if executed well, while protoss often ends up on the back foot or having to risk a lot of money/supply in scouting that may end up unsuccesful/inconclusive, while the limitations on protoss end up with them on the defensive if the terran throws a curveball build.
Just played a ZvT where villain tried to 3 rax me AI, but I was already rushing zergling speed and I scouted him pulling his SCVs so I got some lings out and held pretty easily. After that I sent lings to his natural and didn't let him take it; however, he was walled off, so I figured it was time for MY FIRST EVER BANELING BUST.
Build the baneling nest, morph 8 banelings, send my lings and banelings up the ramp to his wall with a-move ANDDDDDDD
the blings are blocked from the wall by my zerglings trying to attack it, and start dying (shot by marines behind the wall) w/o doing any damage.
Attempt #2: send the banelings in alone and a-move them to the wall. They don't detonate. I was pretty sure I had enabled building explosion, but maybe I did it wrong, because they were just sitting there like ****ing tards and maybe doing damage if I was lucky enough for them to explode next to the wall. No buildings die.
I gave up on banelings after that.
I'm really good at playing down to the level of my opponents too. There was basically a 0% chance of him winning the game once I was denying his nat, but it still took me 25 minutes to win, cause I was just sitting back having a lemonade instead of really going for the throat. Plus that wall had me stymied. Eventually I was like "oh, I can build air units" and made like 20 mutas and that finally got him to quit.
u cant give up on banelings, the best unit in the game!!!!!
idk why but i cant win vs protoss. 44.88% winrate zvp whihc is pretty terrible.
the 3 games i lost today:
FFE, i accidently overdrone and lose. cant get enough raoches out vs an 8gate allin with mostly stalkers
FFE, i scout like 12 rax, and cant hold off a million zealots. was microing my roaches heart out but just too many zealots.
FFE, basically same as game 1, cept didnt overdrone as much, just couldnt hold the lotsa gateway allin
last game, the guy doesnt FFE, he 4gates but doesnt attack, i make a buncha spines and lings off 2 bases. all of a sudden 3 skill rays are at my base and kill my spawning pool and i cant hold. sent all my drones out, made 2 bases accross the map (antiga), and morph like 15 banes trying to base trade. he has like 4 sentrys at his main and i cant break it. geeg
its kinda annoying, in like gold and plat, FFE meant i won cuz stephanos roach max worked so well so often, but recently theyre attacking beofre i can get comfortable and start to roach max. sigh, need to find the right timing and practice more
