    My American friend got Stephano to write a personal greeting to me backstage at Lone Star Clash. I am pretty psyched.

    Also, I love the SCII community.
    English is a second language etc etc.

    Yes, I have. I was just telling you that there was no flying involved, so the joke didn't quite fit.

    Well, I'm fighting silver opponents constantly with the occational gold. Anyways, since I'm beating most of them, I'm not that worried for a placement demotion. So, I decided to try out my FFE DT style. I think I'm starting to do better at it, especially since this was the first time I FFE on this map. Critique is still asked for. Also, it was nice fighting a PvP and not falling apart at the seems for once.

    So, just going to post on my continuation of being awesome. I think I'm getting better at holding off Terran as Protoss. Because what Day 9 said, if you barely hold off a push, then that is the best feeling ever, because you got away with everything you wanted to and still lived.

    You can thank Korea. They made it their national pass-time, they made being a professional gamer an actual option.
    Okay, I'm exaggerating slightly, the whole community did this, but Korea and their fanatacism towards the original Starcraft are what pushed the game in this direction.

    Blizzard has actually said, they're going to support the eSport side of SCII much more when Heart of the Swarm goes live. Though they have not stated exactly how they plan on supporting it.
    Totally speculating a bit, but if it means I can purchase/watch the livestream for a given Starcraft tournament through Blizzard or as part of the game client, that would be kind of cool.

    So everyone, this person roles up random, so I do a fast scout to see whats happening. Now, here are all my cheese check list for the probability of a person cheesing:

    Are they Random? Check! Did they respond to my "gl hf" with "Hi" or some other friendly chat? Check! Do they send their scout worker after yours instead of continuing to scout? Check! Do they have no gas when any terran player needs to have gas? Check! Do they have 2 supply depos before gas or barracks? Check! If they try to wall off, did they fail to do so properly, knowing that they will not need it? Check! Do you see the SCV down below your base building a bunker? Check! Do you see Barracks in your natural expansion? Check!

    But it was okay, because he's better than me.



    Edit: Also, I had the most fun with the games I played today. I almost won all of them, but a 10 pool + pulling half of drones cheese defeated my FFE. I almost defended it, but I accidently sent all my probes back when their were only 3 drones left behind my wall. Didn't realize he was trying to pick off my pylon for lings until it was too late. And yes, I used a pylon in my wall. I panicked when I saw the drones leaving his base, alright!

    Winning is a biproduct of being better than your opponent. Take that however you want.

    I was bad. I was messing everything up. I didn't have any smoothness in my gameplay at all. If I was fighting against myself in a PvZ, I would lose. That was my entire thought process that the zerg was way far ahead of me since I pictured where I would be at in those certain periods of time.

    Anyways, is there a way to FFE on metalopolis? I know there is a weird and precise way to do it, but I don't know it.

    I think there is, but it's definitely more risky than with other maps. You incorporate the nexus into walling off the part near the ramp, and put a cannon in the mineral line to defend the other side. Not sure how safe it is, though.

    It still means that, despite being off your game that match and/or being out of your element, you performed better overall than the other guy. The fact you are asking about it also means you will learn from it and grow from it. I'm of the mind that most failures in most endevours are not something to be ashamed of in all cases. This is one such case, especially since you didn't really fail. Even failure teaches us something. It's those who don't grow from failure, or even recognize failure (or in your case, recognizing less than peak performace), that are of concern. You will grow from it. Feel proud.

    Wow. Zerg around my league suck. They fast expand without using and overlord to scout for pylons, so natural cannon rush, and then they rage when I send in my DTs to harass. Whiners.

    Edit: So, I encountered a sitation in this game. But I remembered the words of Day 9 that, if they rush to warp prism DTs in your base, you just go effing kill them.

    I finally have a useable strat as Terran. I go Fast Banshees. One racks, popping out marines one at a time behind my wall, one siege tank, sieged, a couple of missile turrets for detection and AA, two starports. Go when you have 6 and are researching cloak. If they push early, it's going to be zealots, ling/roach, or Marine/Marauder, and having high ground and better firing vantage setup is going to win you any but the most determined All-in. Your Banshees in his mineral line wins you the rest.

    Only silver/Gold, but out of 12 matches, I won 11 of them this way.

    (The one I failed was due to just SO MANY MARINES. 4Racks>1)

    Oddly, this actually puts protoss as my worst race, despite them being my favorite.
    OK, so that's not true. I can adapt with Protoss, and I have at least three strats (Early Air, Stalker/Immortals, and Dark Templar Harass), two of which work on an FFE. But Win/Loss wise I'm rocking Terran now, and they're usually my worst race. o.0

    If you wait for six banshees, what time are your banshees getting to their base? I can have mutas or infestors out fairly fast vs terran.

    lol. At the end, I couldn't help but think "Yeah, how's that working out for you?"

    Well played, though. I actually thought he was going to win for most of the first 15 minutes.
