Ha, that too.

So, in the last couple days I've learned my infestor control is really bad. What's the proper way to execute a fungal? Like, what I'm currently doing is having my infestors on their own hotkey, and when I want to fungal a group of marines, I'll hold down F and click a couple times on where I want the fungals to go. This is great if my infestors are already in position, but if they're not then that means an infestor has to walk to the point where the fungal location is in range, then do it, and then they just sit there and probably die. If the marines are on the move, then this will fail miserably because the marines will leave the area I wanted to fungal by the time the infestor gets there, so my infestor is now a.) fungaling empty space, and b.) probably walking into the group of marines and dying in order to do it.

What's the proper way to do this stuff?

I think I Amove the whole army, then select my infestors, hit F and shift-click the fungals on whatever i want, then burrow them and move command them back.

I just select them, click F, and click where I want it. Really simple

You guys don't struggle with the same stuff if your infestors are out of range of the location you're trying to fungal?

If my infestors are out of range I'm just careful to make sure I still want them to fungle that area and if I don't and notice then I will just right click move them to cancel the fungal command

Brag: Finally got around to completing the Lost Viking achievements to complete all the Campaign achievements.
Beat: Pretty sure I have carpal in my left wrist from mashing spacebar. I can't even type with it right now because it hurts.
Variance: Got in on my first try.

Is there anything more tilting than losing to a Terran in a 20+ minute game where they forget to get combat shields?

Xaston: opponent is a platinum zerg. The load screen told me he was "Favored" - not "Slightly favored", but "Favored." I knew my chances were low. The game appeared and I saw a hatchery.

I hope you are proud of what happened next.

Nice. He was super late on putting down his spawning pool and pulling his drones, had no chance. Next time try to engage the drones a little earlier, like 3:46 instead of 3:50, you could have bit the drones that were already attacking the front spine once or twice and still got to run left after and safely not get surrounded by the attacking and incoming drones. And then from 2:50-2:54 you're again just running with the lings when they could be either getting free damage/kills on the drones or pulling damage off the spines.

When he starts making a spine on the end of his mineral line you should be poking that with your 2 lings to make it weaker or make him pull drones and lose mining. Or you could run behind the minerals and try and finish off the orange/red drones.

Overall good though and I'm glad to see no extractor trickery.

It is dangerous to keep your infestors in the same control group as your army and Amove because they will be in the front lines and get picked off. I keep them in a seperate group behind my army. I also keep them burrowed unless I need to use fungal.

What is your guys favorite replay sites?

Goofyballer the gold league random presents: matchup power rankings

9. TvT - siege tank lines are the worst, stupidest, most boring way to play this game and I hate them
8. PvZ - forge fast expand? **** that ****
7. PvT - because toss sucks
6. PvP - because toss sucks
5. TvZ - because banelings are ridiculously OP, but at least you can build marauders
4. ZvT - because it's harder to control banelings and infestors well than it is to get owned by them when it's the other guy using them
3. TvP - actually kind of balanced and fun
2. ZvP - cackle with glee as 12 minute roach max stomps your enemy
1. ZvZ - XASTON 7POOL SPINE RUSH FTW
