    Zone Control Hydra, 3 players, lasted for 33 mins and approximately 43 seconds. I dare anyone to play a game that decent and make it last for 33 minutes.

    Best ZC game i've ever played, i'll upload the replay later (I'm on work computer).

    It was me, RyanXWing and coRtALoS. coRt won, he took major control early and i salvaged what i could to hold him off for 33 mins, Ryan was excellent cannon fodder :D

    Upload it, that way I can get a good basis of how Zone Control works. I can then practice in the mornings and eventually challenge you to try and beat your record. If not, I wouldn't be very suprised. Renzokuken is usually better then me at everything, after all.

    Zone Control is basically a massing map, but slightly different. You get money for kills, and at 250 minerals you get a Sunken Dispenser, which is an overlord, if you place it over a 'zone' you get another Sunken Colony placed there, and you control that zone, so you spawn Hydras at each Sunken Colony or 'zone' that you control.

    For 99% of that game, we were massing pretty heavily. My only edge against coRt was my upgrades which were slightly higher than his, and Ryan kept hassling coRt slightly, so i had to take each chance and try & puncture coRts line. I almost did once, then it went downhill from there.

    Zone control is a real fun game. I like the ghost version the best.

    Upload the map for us bad internet users please. I can tinker with it once you do, then probably lose to you but put up a good effort to try and beat you.

    I have two ZC Hydra maps, so i posted them for good measure. Remember the replay is UMS so treat it carefully!

    What i do, is that i don't use the masser until i have like 3 zones, i just group my Hydras and micro so i'll get the most kills early which will give me a good start and work my way from there.

    In the end, it's how well you start that 99% of the time, determines the outcome of the game.

    That's pretty hard man. If I have time tomorrow, I'll try to get better at it, but it's nightime right now so my internet is a couple ethernet units short of a full-DLS Connection. Which sucks.

    I was so ready to leave during that game at random spots when you two just constantly had me on the defensive. :(

    Serious? You owned practically the whole game. The only thing that annoyed me was Ryan attacking me from the side while i was trying to break your line.

    Yep, I had to keep diverting stuff over to him too. It really weakened my lines on the right. You got my sunkens into triple digits. :(

    ---Edit---

    I also wanted to point out that the replays are totally messed up. It never shows us expanding or anything. It just shows us all sitting there with like 300-400+ minerals not upgrading or moving our overlords.

    I ****ing hate that. We haven't been able to watch UMS replays since what? The 1.00 patch? Why the hell did they have to do that? :(

    To tell you the truth I have never heard of Zone Control Hydras in my entire life. I'm basically only a normal game player though. I only UMS with friends on micro arenas and stuff.
