I need a partner to practice with. I can't believe I'm the only one who managed to get a beta.

Why don't we discuss SC II tactics here instead?

I luv this tactic of using any sort of drop ship with either marines/marauders or colossus in them and then harassing the enemies' drones. Harassing is fun!

Okay, my username is DannyFo. And I am currently 5-0 w00t!!! I'm devastating them!

Okay name is DannyFo.dannyfo (didn't realize you needed the second part) and I'm 8 - 2, but my first 5 matches apparently didn't count towards my record. So it says 3-2 boo!

So, my record in 1v1 is 30 - 30...Not exactly happy with all the idiots that photon cannon rush, or when they run in and put stuff on your geisers, or when they rush with one unit. People are much more gay in SC2 than they were in the original.

Still viable tactics huh? I hear not much has changed, it just looks nicer

Good scouting can easily stop the photon cannon rush.

As for the 1 unit rush, make your own unit to counter it

As for the geyser stealing, good scouting helps , if he does that, simply steal his geyser too =P

You should check out the early sentry/zealot rush with hallucination. Its gheyness. If you have sentry/collosus, that's the ultimate gheyness if your forcefield usage is good.

Got my 50 wins with protoss! Now I'm trying the other races...so far I've had several losses and havn't won any. I don't understand how to play zerg and terran and be successful.

Just lost 10 in a row as Terran....what gives?
Elmy said on: 2010-05-14 06:56 pm

I haven't really tried Zerg, but I don't really feel the Protoss. Terran feels best for me, though I really wanted to be a Zerg player, I think Terran will win it for me.

I'm 25-23 right now, but... A lot of those losses aren't really 'real.' I left a few of them, just because I had to go and misjudged the time I had to play. About half those losses are from retarded strats I wanted to try.

If I'm serious and using a strat I know works and am familiar with now, my win ratio is about 5:1. But I haven't been playing too much lately, going to start again soon. Trying to finish FF13 at same time.

ELMO? You have a PS3? OMGOMGOMG. I bought one!! I'm at the part where you get Behamut for Fang. lol

And I didnt get SC2. Wasnt a big fan of it. But I did opt-into the cataclysm beta :D

And if you're at all interested in playing a sort of Street Fighter sidescroller MMORPG, let me know. This one I've been fooling around with in my free time (which I barely have, surprisingly) is not all too bad. lol

ELMO. Message me on MSN omgomg

I've had a PS3 for a long time :P I have the good, backwards compatible, version of it. Cost so much back then... =/

I only just started FF13, so I'm not very far. I just got Odin for Lightning. I'm taking it slow.

My free gaming time is spent between SC2, Bloodline Champions (beta game friend showed me), and FF13. I don't think I'll ever be playing WoW again.

As much as I'd love to play that game with you, I'm afraid I have all my gaming time booked up. As for messaging on MSN... I guess I'll do that now.

When I hooked up to a projector with a VGA cable it looked like garbage, but hooked up with an HDMI cable to the tv is soooooo amazing!

I'll have to try HDMI to the projector and see if it makes a difference.
