Is there a website where I can learn new build orders and stuff?
What the fuck so many people in the bronze league were diamond/plat in last season and now they lost all placement matches just to stomp noobs. It's so fucking annoying.
At least the game is easier to play, right? vv
Just won against a terran that was containing and keeping me off making a 3rd while he had 3 bases, he went mass banshee which i held off with infestors not actually killing them, and got 30 corruptors which totally wiped out his battlecruisers and banshees, morphed 5 brood lords INSIDE his main (land army was non existant) and he ragequitted when they popped out
he was also gold so i might get promoted soon, usually i'm under the impression if zerg is on equal or less bases than their opponent for over a minute or so then they're fucked, but i did hardcore counter all his pride and joy with mass corruptors
As to tvs. With the ghost change you will have to piecemeal the zerg so that hehas to rebuild eco and will not have the same typical dominating hive army.
Both systems are fine, old system was a bit nicer but really the difference is marginal.
New system means you can name yourself ANYTHING YOU GOD DAMN WANT. ANYTHING. Doesn't matter if it's been taken by someone else. HOW IS THAT BAD?
Cross Region Play
Divisions and tiers make low level players and casuals feel better about their play, they see progress and make laddering more immediately rewarding for everyone. On the downside, not knowing your overall rank in the grand scheme of things does suck for people who care about that.
Pretty sure you play random 4v4s with at least semi-random enemy teams.
All of the customs are crap and remakes of War3 or Brood War customs anyway.
No support from Bnet sucks, but on the other hand there's so many community run tournaments (with prizes too!) and players from most skill levels can participate and have a decent chance of winning.
Profile also lists how much you've played this season (based on your wins) and what races you play. Both are things that 1.0 didn't support. Not sayin new profile is better or worse. Also the old win/loss counted every melee match in it's stats. Including against AI. That's retarded.
Since when does BW have portraits? Like seriously.
They're adding clan support soon aren't they?
Lack of lan support sucks, but BW's lan support is buggy at best too. Also that's a problem with SC2, not battle net.
Infinite name changes also meant infinite smurf accounts. You'd never ever get to play against people at your skill level unless you were damn good at the game.
DEAR GOD I MISS THIS.
Pretty sure this is still possible.
Welcome to the modern age, nobody does tech support like this any more because it's unfeasible.
List is flawed, some points are good, some are not, some are plain bullshit. Bnet 2 is good enough anyway.
"Oh I got stormed, better use my micro to select the units under storm and move them away."
"Okay move them again."
"My whole army is dead, even though I micro'd more than my opponent and my army was larger."
Portraits are crap, let me use my own avatar like in any Valve game since 2004.
I wanna use my avatar
Then again there is the potential of goatse avatars, but in all my time playing valve games, the most inappropriate avatar I have ever seen was a nice pair of boobies.
They would never introduce the feature of course, EA and Activision are dicks like that.
EA and Activision doesn't allow modification of anything at all. With Valve games, you can pretty much modify everything.
Fuck yeah, valve.
The only Protoss units storms actually kill are Sentries and Probes.
With one storm, true. But most of the time it's fucking new years eve when I fight Protoss.
Or go ghosts
So, I'm trying to learn zerg. How do I counter Dark Templars?
Spores and Spines on all your bases.
Overseers are too easy to lose track off, but you should get one asap if you see DTs.
Later I noticed that most 'Toss would just empty their HT's in 2 seconds and moving my entire army would do the trick.
It's just a matter of practice. In time you'll be moving those units without second thought.
That, or it's an headache from seeing your entire army get decimated by a bunch of HT's.
Problem with that means I never get to practice against them.
Which means when they do pop up I die.
Not that it matters, protoss is my worst matchup by far.
HTs versus lower level Terrans are already ridiculous. 2 storms are enough to lose your entire army if you go bio, so you have to bank on the fact that you will need EMP ready ghosts that manage to hit all his HTs MVP can do it, I don't know about everyone else
How do you counter 4gate as zerg if it looks like they're 4gating but then they just turtle up and make a deathball?
You get lots of spines and mass expo everywhere.
The deathball is the problem I have the name probs gives it away
Love that the starter edition exists, starting to get this girl into SC2
Guys I suck so I have these replays and can you please tell me what I shouldn't do.
but the thing is I would upload it somewhere, but where?
