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.

Replay: Win vs Nooblet (Z) – Xel’Naga Caverns

Well…  That actually ended up working out pretty well.  Nooblet was a Silver player, but that’s about the level I’m playing right now anyway.  🙂

Replay: Loss vs CptLaxSauce (P) – Xel’Naga Caverns

As much as I’d love to just identify the reason I lost this match as “I played poorly because I’m out of practice”, I’d be doing myself a disservice to not look more closely.

  • Scout
  • Pump
  • Control
  • Protect

Loss vs Truesteel (P)

Mass hydras is obviously not the unit of choice to counter mass stalkers and high templars.  🙂

Lessons learned:

  • Get something other than hydras and speedlings to counter stalkers and high templars!  😛
  • Keep upgrading.

Loss vs Mark (T)

Loss due to a marine drop.  Vikings did a good job closing down my vision of the map, so I didn’t see the drop coming.

Lessons learned:

  • Hmm, I’m not sure how I can deal with overlord hunting.  Zerglings on the watchtowers would have helped…
  • SCOUT!!!!!
  • Counter marines with roaches.

Win vs Stanley (P)

Scouting and map control prevail!  Denied multiple expansions with speedlings and hydras, caught a switch to air and robo, countered accordingly.  Nydus drop sealed the deal!  High point of the match was a mothership, which was rendered ineffective due to my overseers nearby.

Lessons learned:

  • Keep resources low!
  • Keep pumping drones and overlords.
  • Continue spawning creep.
