Loss vs Bennywoods (P)

Replay: Loss vs Bennywoods (P) – Shakuras Plateau

Random player!  Don’t see many of those!

That was a LOT of colossi!  Fortunately for me, I was emphasizing getting hydras!  I’m starting to think that my opponents must just be scouting and countering what I do.  🙂  Also, I’m just not very good at the game, in the end.  Oh well!

Loss vs Yuncun (P)

Replay: Loss vs Yuncun (P) – Scrap Station

Lost to a 4-gate.  Lesson learned: don’t rush to mutas without:

  1. A second base.
  2. Units that can defend against a 4-gate in a pinch.

I think I ended up training drones as Yuncun was attacking…  Not the brightest move.  I do need to make sure I have an overlord closer to the entrance of my opponent’s base, instead of  off to the side.  That way, I can see my opponent’s units as early as possible, and respond quickly.

Actually, now that I think about it, I should probably just have a zergling or two out there, instead of overlords.  I already get supply blocked enough without sacrificing overlords…

Win vs Desh (T)

Replay: Win vs Desh (T) – Shakuras Plateau

Suffered some losses from some attacks, but kept a highly mobile force of mutas and lings to deal with it, while I tech’d to brood lords.

Did a decently good job at first with drone production, but didn’t really transfer them well into gas and into other expansions later in the game.

Win vs Steve (P)

Replay: Win vs Steve (P) – Xel’Naga Caverns

Held off early aggression and remembered to pump drones.  Fortunately, my opponent went immortals when he saw my roaches, and wasn’t prepared for my switch to mass mutas.  Added bonus — I actually remembered to upgrade to Hive and Greater Spire.

And yet, as I waatch the replay…  My drone level was always below my opponent’s.  I need to get a lot better at pumping drones when I can, even if it means losing games while I get used to it.

Loss vs Dan (P)

Replay: Loss vs Dan (P) – Lost Temple

Really, I was just outplayed.  Went a two-hatch opening that I really liked, though, so I reckon I’ll give that another shot.  Just have to be able to make a proper army, and be better able to bust through a fortified position.  I guess ultimately, if I had gone for map control instead of a direct confrontation, I could have eventually starved the Protoss out…  Hm!

Win vs Fsensor (T)

Replay: Win vs Fsensor (T) – Metalopolis

First game after another long-ish stretch.  I failed to be producing the drones I thought I was producing…  If it happens again, I’m going to have to take a closer look at what’s distracting me.
