L: Hotkey problem into late hatch and late pool when Terran goes for bunker behind my mineral line vs hatch, I leave cause it's a stupid game at that point
L: Protoss goes gateway expand into 4gate aggression, I hold first wave and then insta-leave when I see the blur of DTs that I'm not ready for
W: 2 base roach vs terran
W: hold ******ed speedling into expansion aggression from random Z and out-macro into roach-hydra
W: 2 base roach vs cc first terran, kinda base trade-ish when he tries to double drop as my army moves out but I clean up his drops and he has nothing at home, typical terran
L: Protoss does mass zealot all in when I'm just starting roach production while supply blocked
W: swarm host-muta vs LOLmech, started making mutas after I realized he was inexplicably putting all his thors into explosive payload mode...thanks?
L: gold protoss goes for 2 base all in with some gateway stuff and a couple immortals, I hold it, he tries to take a 3rd and I kill it, he comes back with a bunch more immortals and I lose, protoss such a stupid race
W: 2 base roach vs pathetic terran who opens hellion drop, kills like 8 workers, does fast 3 CC too, and despite me ****ing up my roach build so late he still has way not enough at home and loses
1) mehh, reapers or proxy rax marine? bunker behind is far worse (where is your 2nd overlord?)
3)2 base roach soooo strong
4) lol zvz
5)2 base roach soooo strong
8)where yo hydras
9)2 base roach s0000 strong
It looks like I've been doing it slightly wrong - the idea is this, which has you starting a 3rd at 8:30 and pushing out with ~30 +1/+1 roaches at 10:00. You can drone behind it and be well ahead if your attack does significant econ damage at the natural but doesn't end the game.
i wonder how long it would take me to get back to masters (my MMR has completely reset by now)
i made what is probably equivalent to sc2's low diamond in league in like 6 months of play
Depends how many games you are willing to play, but I'd say a weekend if you include Friday, just to be conservative.
I have brought a couple accounts from fresh elo to masters in a single day way back when. I really don't think it would be that hard at all. You could do it with 2 or 3 builds and rely purely on mechanics/timing.
Took me 5 days to go from reset MMR to Masters(80 games with 60% winrate I think). Guess it will take longer now as the avg skilllvl is much higher and it will take a while to get used to the Metagame and new builds.
You guys have to consider that
a.) He never played much HotS so he's not at all used to current meta/new units
b.) It's gonna take him awhile to figure out how the hell to play vs lolprotoss now that the matchup is totally different
c.) Karak blows
I'd say 150 games as a conservative estimate. Personally, I think my mechanics hardly degraded at all over my break, and the only reason I would say I'm weaker right now is because I'm learning a new inject scheme. But Karak always complained about how ****ty his mechanics were after even a short break, so I'm assuming he degrades faster than me.
Strategy doesn't even matter. Mutas are so good in every matchup he can just do that if he wanted to. He could probably even go pwncakery style and just go mass ling/bane and do fine. The game isn't really that different from WoL.
I'd be very impressed if he got back to masters in a week. Masters is pretty tough atm. I have been masters for the past several seasons and I got demoted to diamond at the start of the this season. It took me well over 100 games of super tryhard mode to get back to masters.
