Loss vs Merovingian (T), Desert Oasis

This was a frustrating loss, because I was really fumbling around, and didn’t end up making anything.  Hurrr!

Lessons learned:

  • Have a plan!

Loss vs DangerClose (Z)

I hate to say it, but I’m happy to have lost a game.  I was on a winning streak, and wasn’t really learning a lot.  This game was cute, because it was a low-league version of the way ZvZ plays in Asia.  🙂

Lessons learned:

  • Don’t bother going sling/bling if you can’t micro. 😛
  • At the very least, put banelings in their own control group.

Win vs Aquafresh (P)

Looks like I’m not the only one not really familiar with Delta Quadrant.  This poor Protoss was covering the wrong ramp into his base — the one that led to the blocked expansion!

Lessons learned:

  • Macro units! Tick track ftw, and remembering to get more units is great.
  • Watch supply.

Win vs Matvei (P)

I used a timer track playing in the background for this match, basically set up to tick audibly every 35 seconds or so, which coincides to the cooldown of spawn larva plus a bit of extra time because I never get to it right away.  Really long match, so I won’t go into great detail.

Lessons learned:

  • Tick track for the win!
  • Scout!! Specifically, determine the need for detectors.

Win vs malo (Z)

Highlight of the game: a billion tons of creep!!!  😀

Lessons learned:

  • One extra queen spawning a bunch of creep tumors makes for a helluva lot of creep.  ❤
  • I need a metronome/timer for spawn larva.
  • A roach plan transitions well into hydras, with zerglings filling in the mineral gap.

Win vs tranquility (P)

I think my opponent would have won this game if he had pushed.  I wonder, though, since the stats at the end of the game showed us almost dead-even in resource collection, if I would have won this game sooner if I had pushed?  The fog of war makes one want to play it safe.

Lessons learned:

  • Focus on macro. (ie: spawn larva!)
  • The opponent doesn’t necessarily have more than you do.

Loss vs Cole (P), Placement Match 5

Placed in Bronze league, Norad Alamo divison!  This was an especially strange game because I’d never seen the map before.

Lessons learned:

  • Spawn larva.
  • Counter units with units, not tech.
  • Defend proactively.
