sufu starcraft threak

Recommended Posts

I woke up about noon today and played campaign until right now. Anyone know of any good sites / guides, etc... before I jump online? Because I can't do the like 'basic' challenges and I was even pretty good at the original (in relation to human beings I knew in real life / could win about 1 of every 3 online games or so).

yea huskystarcraft, HDstarcraft and day[9] are what i've been watching. on one hand it's cool, because i literally have no experience with SC1 and RTS in general, so i'm soaking in a ton of information, but at the same time, i'm almost afraid to go online because i think everyone will be that good lol.

the ranking thing is pretty good so fear not.

b.net should be able to place you against opponents of similar skill levels more or less after you play some league games.

In addition to the HD starcraft / Husky starcraft commentaries, which contain a lot of good information, check out the forums at teamliquid.net as well as their wiki, liquipedia. Also they're a bit longer but if you google Day9 he's got some pretty good in depth commentary. He has a couple episodes dedicated to Whitera analysis which I found useful.

there's alot of discussion about how these patch notes are fake because of some of the grammar and pure pointlessness in some of the changes so I'll wait until thursday before i start bitching about my imbalanced terran race getting nerfed

people are still adjusting the metagame.. already you see alot of unique strategies and styles emerging from korean GSL that no one has used before and blizzard usually understands that so they won't do anything super drastic until you see everyone in GSL winning using one strategy (ex: mass druids of the talon in wc3 for elf)

well patch is out.. just some subtle changes (good for blizzard to not fuck up the metagame yet)

that TLO vs. dimaga game is nuts.. but im disappointed he didn't switch to mech or put up more expos.. TLO had a lot of map control with his air and dimaga wouldn't have ran his mass queens for an attack if he expanded.. then a switch to mech and he would've been good

idra vs. lotzeprime.. **SPOILERS** (sry for quality too) idra went through lotze's match history and checked build orders on LT.. he saw fast robo colossus all in and made a mass roach expo build to counter it.. so lotze fakes the build (fake robos and everything) and proxies a stargate with 3 void rays.. smart ass play

zstf0TTIVBQ

oh and here's a good site to watch GSL with brackets/schedules

http://www.youplayoff.com/playoff/234/2010+TG+Sambo+Intel+Starcraft+II+Open+Season+1

next matches aren't until the end of this week cause of the patch.. looking forward to check vs. rainbow the most

edit: cause of chuseok actually... coincidence that it gives them time to adjust i guess

when i was first starting to look around for SC2 videos, whenever i'd find one with idra, he'd always lose and talk shit. then i saw him on that hilariously awkward german prematch stuff for the games against marrow and it all kinda made sense.

i watch em during work too, but without sound

TvT oGsTheSTC vs. Jordan

DMahUCOf7_U

***SPOILERS***

fast expo -> BC rush while dropping mules to repair them.. pretty dirty

TvP oGsTheSTC vs. oGsIron

Y9nyyoMTJ-4

***SPOILERS***

factory drop is such a good move against toss, really hinders them as you pump hellions to harass while attacking with MM.. then the transition into banshees puts you so ahead

ravens vid

yeah that other terran was straight tarded though... derp let's make siege tank against ravens

anyway GSL is in Quarterfinals now.. gonna make some preds

NEXLiveForever (T) vs. MakaPrime (T)

Maka hasn't dropped a map yet and he looks really strong. Check this proxy Ghost Academy play..

k3kHeW84RrU

CoolTSL (Z) vs. oGsInca (P)

Cool is definitely the best current Zerg player.. his Overlord Drop -> 10 Ultralisk explosion is fuckin insane. Already beat the best oGs player so I don't think Inca will be able to win.

wO296AqO8yk

sSKS (P) vs. HopeTorture (T)

Tester vs. Rainbow for those who don't know.. This is probably my favourite set to look forward to, it's gonna go to 3 maps for sure. Tester just seems to be in amazing shape - just watch his micro in this last battle against Hyperdub..

Zs-_K_nXyf0

oGsEnsnare (T) vs. HongUnPrime

More oGs vs. Prime action.. Ensnare's been playing pretty perfectly but this is one of the weaker matchups IMO.

alot of people talked about floating to gold on a couple maps but that's the first time i've seen someone use it so efficiently. i skimmed through it but i'll watch it again when i go home.. the bunker play with the extra minerals is dope

Fuuuck I wanna play this but don't have a pc that runs it... Loved playing bw in the 90s, cost me a year of college too. Should I buy ToJ or build a pc to play sc2? Swag or swarm???
