Yeah, that kinda falls in the area of "stuff I know I should be doing but haven't yet done enough for it to be muscle memory". Like, I know that mid/late game I should have lings burrowed at just about every base, but researching burrow is often something that slips my mind for awhile and then I just forget to build the lings and send them out. Obviously that hurt in that ZvT on Condemned Ridge where he had a million bases I didn't know about.
It's important enough that it shouldn't be in your 'stuff I should be doing', but rather in the category of 'things I need to work on right now'
It's more than just having lings buried at his expos. In order to be able to drone properly and not die to timings, you need to actually know what your opponent is doing at all times.
I reached high platinum as zerg, high diamond as terran, and now I begin playing my most hated race.....the brotoss.
Early impressions: blink stalker OP, mothership OP.
What do you do to "reset" your ladder? Just play through the losses until you lower down to your skill level with the new race? And what kind of time frame are you using to define what you're reaching?
