your whole family is made of meat
what race do you mainly play in SC2?
Safest build is a 13 pool/13 gas. I usually take my gas first to get Ling speed slightly faster. This is mostly becuase depending on the matchup:1) What build do you usually open with against an opponent who randoms, before knowing what your opponent is?
I usually take a third almost immediately, and when the Nexus completes I get a fourth hatchery and get to 70 drones as fast as possible.2) In ZvP, if the Protoss FE's, do you try to punish it or do you just quickly take a third yourself? If so, when do you usually try to take the third?
You basiclly wait until you need gas again. It's a minor boost to minerals for at most a few minutes.3) After starting Metabolic Boost and taking Drones off gas, what do you usually wait for before putting them back on? (if you do this at all)
**** if I know. That would take way to long, depending on map/spawn distance. It basiclly comes down to you playing better than your opponent, and scouting it early enough.4) How do you deal with 1/1/1 All-ins?
Scouting it and jsut making enough units and spines.5) How do you deal with 8 min zealot/sentry pushes? (Blocking off the ramp and killing your expo)
Depends. Pure mech, Hellion/Roach/Thor I'd open infestor roach, snag hellions with Fungal and Mind control what I could, grab a thrid and quick test straight to broods.6) Against Terran mech builds, do you bother with Infestors at all or do you just go only for Broodlords and Roaches?
Actualy most of my strategy in ZvZ came from Roach expands.7) In ZvZ, expand and ling/bling, or just 1-base ling/bling?
ZvP: Pool on 14gas 14 pool, 15 queen. 4 lings to clear expo of any probe. Hatch on 20.8) How do you usually open up against Terran and Protoss?
I usually do it just to increase my drone production for a little bit, but I don't really have a great idea of what the timings are or when I should put them back on to try and get lair-tech.You basiclly wait until you need gas again. It's a minor boost to minerals for at most a few minutes.
I'm prettty sure Day9 said somewhere that if you saw a pro do something, and don't know why you doing it, don't do it. If you need me to tell you when they go back on gas, you probably get a better performance not doing it until you can decipher where in your build you need it.
Haha, fair enough.**** if I know. That would take way to long, depending on map/spawn distance. It basiclly comes down to you playing better than your opponent, and scouting it early enough.
Care to elaborate? I used to try to go Roaches to turn the game into more of a macro fight instead of the lingbling micro fight, but either I eventually get flooded with enough lings that I lose my roaches, or he just fast techs to mutas and takes enough map control/harasses me enough that I lose any sort of economic advantage pretty quickly.Actualy most of my strategy in ZvZ came from Roach expands.
