Lost my first match against a zerg. I was talking to my girlfriend, who was playing a 1v1 next to me and our dog jumped in my lap when I started. The game started horribly. I cancelled my drone on 8 on accident, and then i cancelled my overlord on 9. So panicking, i threw down a fast expo for some reason and started trying to get banelings. He went speedling -_- i was so stupid. going fast expo, even on cross spawns does not give me time…
Second game was much better, I played against a terran and recently watched Day9’s thing on playing like IMNestea and so I played like that and it worked beautifully. I find it hard to get maxed though, like I have my 70 or so dones… but does he really make like 130 zerglings? or even 100 of them? that was the only thing that got me. But I killed him pretty easily.
Third game was good too, against another terran. i played nestea style again and fast expoed. He did a good job killing off my spotting overlords and then i saw hellions and he pressed with 4 of them before my roach warren went up. he killed 5-8 drones, but since all I was doing was droning up it didnt affect me too much. Then i saw he was taking his second, so i took my third and fourth and i defended with lings and mutas. It went kind of back and forth between us. At some point he took down my natural using that stupid cliff and i just expo-ed two more times after that. i definatley need to be more on with my larvae spits though because I ran out of larvae to make lings. he dropped and i kept cleaning it up until i was maxed. got to a point where i used ultras and broodlords to bring him down, followed by a wave of muta, followed by another wave of ultras and banes. Terran on 4 bases is hard to bring to its knees.
The last terran was a diamond. Im finally moving up
Rank 27-> Rank 17(I think)
