So ghey ladder locked at midnight. I was just getting ready to play about 10 games on the spin to spend my bonus pool. Shoulda had me top 5 Diamond or close to it unless I went on a losing streak . I guess its not a big deal but I would have played them earlier if I had known!

Oh man, I just played perhaps my favorite game of all time. Featuring two base Protoss all-ins that should have killed me (down to one base LOL), #goofymacro, and more hilariously terrible play on all sides, I present to you:

I'm not sure I've ever seen five extractors building at once.

I think my favorite part is ~26:30 when he's like "I will NOT let this pylon fall. I WILL warp in eight 1/1 zealots against 3/3 cracklings to make sure this pylon in the middle of nowhere does not die. I WILL NOT BE DENIED!"

He lost 950 minerals for a ****ty ****ing pylon that he could have just canceled after the probe got killed. Brilliant.

I don't really have/know gas timings, there's basically "the period of the game where you maybe want ling speed" and then "the period of the game where you take all of the gas"

it essentially costs you 20 mineral drones to do this, so you should really really really need gas. i generally go 1-4-6-8. you should be taking additional gases before your third is finished unless you're doing the very rare mass queen build (and even with this i think you take them earlier) because otherwise you just don't have enough tech quickly enough- and if you do happen to randomly have enough gas from that one extractor to delay your other gases that much, it still means you didn't tech fast enough.

Anyone around for a game on NA? Still annoyed that the season ended in the middle of my session earlier. 180 bonus pool unused! I got like 1k points, by far the most I have ever got in one season and was like 25th in my league lol.

Well it depends on your build, or if you don't really use builds strategy.

For example vs Terran I get ling speed, double ups, lair, baneling nest, spire in roughly that order.

So I go into 1 gas, get ling speed, then I take my other 3 gas, then I build two evos so that I will spend the gas that I am collecting...

Think about what you need the gas for and when, this will help you take your gas at a sensible time. If you need fast lair and spire in ZvZ you take an early one gas, then take all 4 as soon as you go lair to collect gas for Spire. So basically you will collect like 250 gas from 1 extractor (or 300 if make 2 banes or whatever) then take the other 3.

played really horribly in the matches i played today, partially because i was horribly distracted and partially because i ****ed up slash totally winged a couple builds and partially because knowing what I see and reacting to it is still a problem.

so when the season starts tomorrow I'm going to do more build practicing and a lot more actual study and practice instead of just, **** it, imma ladder yoloswag.

I also don't know when to get upgrades, and when to get my 3rd. I always get stim/combatshield totally ASAP, and 1-1 fairly quickly, but i think i may be trying to force out upgrades way to early when i could be making extra marines or tanks or w/e. And sometimes I take a 3rd early and I'm like, ****, I have nowhere near enough SCVs for that, and sometimes I'm like, ****, 2 bases oversaturated and no 3rd started, ****!

Man I need to stop drinking too. Too bad football season starts in just a few days.

Knowing when to take more bases was something I never understood as Terran. I'm still not great at it as Zerg (though I think I'm improving at it, in that replay I posted today I went up to 6 I think). I think a lot of it is just having game sense, i.e.
- having enough map control to know that it's safe
- knowing if you're ahead enough that you can invest into another CC without dying to an attack, or if you're behind enough that you have to expand faster than you'd like to catch up
- scouting and knowing when your opponent takes extra bases so you can know if you should take one yourself

seems like a lot of maps these days you should have your army out enough that you'll always know if you can take a 3rd. timing wise, mostly what goofy said. if you have extra mins, ccs are good. if you arent seeing a lot of allins at silver (or are getting to where you can hold them easily), doing a quick 3cc build isnt a bad idea even. pretty sure allins are gonna be slower/weaker/worse, so having less army isnt an auto loss.

scouting kinda takes practice, but early aggression is big to know how to spot and how to adjust

After you play a game you get that helpful screen that shows your build order and those graphs. If you exit and later load and watch a replay, is there a way to bring up that data again?

But think of if you take those gases even SOONER and have even MOAR GAS to make MOAR MUTAS!!!

(I'm only half kidding - moar gas = moar mutas!!)
