I later played a Toss who did a gateway fast expand on Polar Night (like, he did pylon at natural wall, but put a gateway instead of forge and finished the wall with pylon/cyber core). He also pylon blocked my nat, which always tilts me, so I decided to do a speedling-baneling all in off 2 bases. When I attacked he was just finishing a 2nd gate and had a stargate out with like a phoenix or two or some ****. LOL protoss.
I did lose a game to Toss that went full base trade because I was a tard and was 1000% sure I put a proxy hatch down on his side of the map, only to see the "you will be revealed in x seconds "thing pop up" making me be like "wait wtf?" and then I lost my last building while trying to put down a hatch with one of the many drones I brought with me. So that's one way Zerg can lose.
lolol maybe. played a 2v2 tonight with my TPvPZ where it went basetrade. luckily hatches dont fly, and after ~2 mins of reveal they decide to not defend a single building across the map with ling/zealot against 15 blink stalkers and 4 medivacs of MMscv
Random note: one of my favorite things as Zerg is when Terran goes mech and floats a rax my way, because as a terrible scouter this is usually the first thing I see that tells me I should start making roaches and is really helpful advance warning of what's coming.
Corollary: making a scouting rax when you're going bio would be an excellent troll and possibly dupe bad Zergs like myself into making really bad compositions vs yours.
yeah i mean i guess you're not wrong, just seems that between the time it takes to die, having them just "hide" tech, and needing to rebuild when you want to add more factories, it seems a bit strange. can you set it to patrol to ignore damage?
also seems like it would help more to camp it above half the pathing as it'll basically have 10-12 minutes of vision to aid your slow army. and ive never seen it in a game so didn't occur to me as the way to use it
I wonder if we'll start seeing ESF players jumping ship to Kespa teams if they see an opportunity (like Parting, but en masse now that GSTL is dying and I'm confirmed the only person even watching it). Maybe Prime will try to poach some people from the deep teams like StarTale/Azubu? Or...
