Haha, thanks for the compliment, but that's nothing compared to the Strategy forum over at TL. That's where I'm drawing most of my experiences from.

And if you want to check out good commentary, sc2gg is basically the hub for English-commentated Starcraft. They're actually doing a live broadcast of the MSL finals coming up in half an hour.

Some commentators to check out on YouTube:

Moletrap
Diggity
Klazart
PsyonicReaver
Cholera
Rise
Vaul

There are others as well (all in the left column on sc2gg's homepage), but these guys are the most well-known. Well, excluding Tasteless, but he's commentating professionally over in Korea for the Averatec-Intel Classic, so he doesn't count.

Anyway, I'll be tuning into the stream. You guys should, too. If you want to use the Daum player, you can follow this tutorial video I made a while back:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LKwL1pgapAM

You can also use TVants, which the audio commentary is going to be based on, and you can check sc2gg's homepage for instructions on that.

Well, that's all I've got to say...except for one thing.

LEE JAE DONG FIGHTING!

The MSL finals make me a sad person. ;-; More specifically, the MSL makes me a sad person.

Does anyone want to play either on B.net or Hamachi?

Well I don't have AIM. I'll get on Hamachi and look through this thread again for your B.net ID.

Well I stayed up until 5 just to be ****ing disappointed. For one thing, either my audio would buffer every two seconds, or my video would, and if I managed to get them both working at the same time, it wouldn't last long, plus it wasn't synced together at all.

PLUS THE FACT THAT JAEDONG FRIGGIN' LOST.


... props to forGG though ... he played sick.

Boo, Jaedong lost

Not only that, he got 3:0ed. By ForGG. That makes me a sad panda.

The worst part is that I don't even know what Jaedong did wrong. It just seemed like he always had half the force that ForGG did, and that ForGG's godlike macro replaced every army he lost with an even bigger one. I don't know how that's possible...but man, was it painful.

Hey zhul4nder, since we see how much interest SC has garnered in the FFR community, I was thinking of making a new thread with all the info (FFR players, their IDs, fansites, etc.) right in the OP. I'd take care of setting it all up and keeping everything up to date, I just wanna make sure you're okay with it, since if we did that, this thread would probably be better off closed.

Get back to me on what you think about it, alright?

I'm beast with the Zerg xD I always choose to build a hell of a tight defence before making a large offensive force. Lurkers, ftw.

Edit:..I forgot there were five pages of this, rofl..I was still reading first page.

I like playing players like you. Defensive players, especially zergs, are the one thing I'm happy playing. Dragoon contain (not like you'll be moving out anyway), double expand, tech to arbiters ( <3 ), and stasis everything ftw. Doom recall over the defenses if need be.

That's like, the only way I'll ever win anything lol

Just because you haven't scouted them yet doesn't mean you can fast expand one game and then fast tech the next.

With stupid tactics like 4-pool, you never actually get to fully scout your opponent until you get lings anyway. So there are many BO's to choose from with or without scouting.

Also, you don't need to actually see their base to understand what they might be doing sometimes. You can usually judge what they're up to by prodding them with a couple of units and see how many units they send in response
Trust me you dont need to teach me starcraft

edit: btw r from scd?

As a veteran with 9 years of experience I would say that the little knowledge that does spew out of my mouth would be correct and valuable. Especially since you assumed that you must scout in order to choose different build orders.

>_> on a lighter note... zhul4ander!!! come back and give Relambrien permission to make a more awesome thread to list all the players and stuff!
I wasnt defensive. I've [rpb played 10 times as much as you. If you go gas and they are Z then your dumb. You NEED to scout. Period
