i also got promoted as well. i played my games at the end of last season, when the ladder was locked. i went 5-0 and placed into platinum. i was playing masters players probably by game 8 or so and finished the season 21-14. i placed into masters this season.

I don't think I've ever seen a Terran player lose 62k resources. Marines are basically free, medivacs are immortal, and it's not like you're going to spend 62k on tanks and mines.

I, on the other hand, haven't had time to play much and was demoted.

Hopefully me being in Diamond will be sufficient motivation for narwhal to get the **** out of Platinum.

Damn Ultra-Ling is really good, nearly lost against a total scrub

How does ultra-ling handle skytoss? Is the idea there that, like, ~13 minute ling-ultra attacks can't be held off with just skytoss and cannons and skytoss can't win a base race faster than lings and ultras?

13 minute skytoss is what? A few VRs?

I don't play Toss but I imagine it's a bit more than that, voids take a minute to warp in (without taking chrono into account) and if you aren't building gateway units you can prob go double stargate fairly easily on your economy by like 7 or 8 minutes.

even 2 stargates at 8 mins, voids start at 9, even if you chrono a full 50% of the time, which sounds like a ton on 2 base, you have like max 15 voids?

would only be 8 if zero chrono.

watched that replay goofy, i think you need to get more efficient at winning lol that coulda been a 20 min game. altho im pretty sure you should have lost several times, could not believe how that kid had zero micro. did he kite once in the entire game? lol

Promoted after two games gg. Went 7-2 last night, where the two losses were me ragequitting an ebay block and the first game of the night where I selected Terran by mistake and trolled around for a bit before losing to a roach/bane AI.

And join channel 'twoplustwo' on NA server Raz. I'll play you if you want and I'm on, which should be anytime tomorrow.

Went 8 games in a row in platin, got promoted and already Rank 4 in Diamond gogogo

Played against a low master Zerg and once again just outplayed him but then ultraling just came in and killed everything -.- Guess I need archons faster.

edit: were only 8 games not 10 in a row there was big brainfart in between that I deleted out of memory

Anyone here know DeMu cloaked banshee build? He goes gas first into pretty fast cloaked banshees and expos behind it. Do you know how this holds reapers in the beginning? He makes marines the whole time. He mentioned "this build only loses to mass reapers" on his stream. How do you hold off the 2, 3 or 4 reaper FE that terrans love doing now a days?

the build is

gas first
rax
marines
factory
supply depot (2nd)
gas
starport
supply depot (3rd)
tech lab on starport
CC


I didnt get timing of the orbital, but I'd assume its standard 16 or w/e

If he says that it loses to mass reapers, then that's that, you don't hold without your opponent making a mistake. By mass reapers, I'm assuming that means 2 rax reaper builds, since I would think the build could hold 1 rax reaper even if he went up to 3 or 4 (otherwise it wouldn't really be a good choice since that's fairly common, right?). You're making marines faster than he makes reapers and you have no travel time. Just off the top of my head, I would think you could have 2 marines out to meet his first reaper, and it would only snowball in your favor from there. I can't really recall Demuslim facing any 1 rax reaper builds, but I don't really pay that much attention.

Ya I mean I think hes talking 5 reaper + around 5 or 6 minute mark that just march into your base.

Granted, I lose to just 1 or 2 reapers in diamond because my micro is god awful vs those things.

I figure if reapers are such a hard counter to this build, DeMu wouldn't be doing it EVERY TvT

Damn some bastard used this swarmhost/viper/nydus build against me and abducted my observers all the time(He had a lot of spores in front of my base). That was so ****ing annoying to play against, I somehow won still don`t know how.

If a T commits to 5-6 reapers it's a pretty risky and uncommon I would imagine, especially when the T is playing blind. Most players will only build 1-3 because reapers are really only good for scouting and harass -- they're pretty bad at actual direct fighting. If you build more, most of the time they are going to be a waste of resources and you will set yourself behind significantly if you commit to that many early in the game.

Last edited by aK13; 05-04-2013 at 04:13 PM. Reason: I would also guess that DM has the micro to defend a reaper rush a nonzero percent of the time too
