Surprisingly I managed to play pretty well, only lost one game to a diamond P who went, like, colossus/void ray/storm with mass cannon? I guess I'm supposed to do something stupid like swarm host/spore against that but **** that ****, so I just threw a bunch of hydras and ultras at his bases and wound up losing. But I beat a random plat where I got way ahead early with lings in his base, he went to a quick 3 bases after stabilizing (so I went up to 4 or 5), I did some damage with mutas, he then went like 4-5 stargates (lol?), I got infestors and hydras and owned most engagements against void ray/carrier (lol!). Went into ultras to end it.
Come to think of it I think I built like 12 corruptors at one point and then completely forgot about them. That would explain why I kept having this nagging feeling like my army was smaller than it should have been despite being maxed.
He was no clown, he was good. And he was diamond each of the last 2 seasons.
Anyway I just played a gold guy too, rushed 4 tanks to my natural. goddammit getting destroyed isn't fun
Like I said there was a bug/mistake w/e that there were too much people in diamond the first HOTS-Season, these people shouldn`t have been in Diamond and they usually got placed way lower the next season(Friend of mine made it to diamond and was placed into gold the next season)
Like I said, it wasn't one season, it was 2 seasons, he only had 4 games this season, (all wins) looked like he didn't play at all this season until yesterday, and with the season lock they just stuck him in silver. Which makes a lot more sense to me than "Oh for two straight seasons Blizzard overplaced him by 60 percentile points"
he was good enough to where i was like whoa, wtf, and had to check out his profile
He is 100% one of the guys who didn`t deserve to get to diamond or he started throwing away matches to get a low MMR. Else there is no way he goes to silver from Diamond. I was masters a couple of seasons too, doesn`t mean I still play on masters level(Hint: I don`t )
Post the replay and I can tell you what level he plays on.
if you get placed in diamond to start a season then get demoted, does it count you as having a high of diamond? or does it only account for finishing league?
He saying that the season is locked means that it`s still Season 2 in HOTS and Season 1 was the buggy one.
Yeah well losing 25 games in a row explains it, just dropped his mmr on purpose. So he actually mightve been a "true" diamond.
looking at the replay idk if he was a "true diamond" though either. He wasn't good at all at keeping his money low (although his massive income secured behind harassing me probably made it hard to spend)
Probably his WOL gold/platinum level is about where he truly is
