    the first 3 diamond level games --

    Game 1
    has me up against a terran on desert oasis
    going into the game i had the mindset to get a quick robo/obs than switch to colo or HT, probably colo
    i made my 2nd gas too late, so i was super late w/ the bay/colo
    i got rolled

    Game 2
    has me up against a zerg on XelNaga Cav
    going into the game i was thinking of 2gate-fe depending on what he's doing
    i scout and see 6/7 pool
    i had gone 14 gate, so i just left (i normally leave if someone 6pools me, its just not worth it to me)

    *BUT* i realise if i wanna get good and do any sort of league/tourney's i need to learn how to beat this...... sooooooooooooooo
    advice?

    Game 3
    oooo this is a fun one!
    i am up against a protoss on delta quadtrant
    this is one of my favoriteist maps, but its also one of those cheese maps so ya

    i go for a 4wgate, w/ a proxy pylon near his expo so i can jump the chasm (since its not uphill you see over, just enough space for a few units)
    as im destroying his base i notice he has a few cannons and isnt leaving
    i quickly see 3 VR @ my base
    we continue base trading, as i try to repel it a little bit, but he caught me off guard w/o enough gas for a full 4 stalkers so i end up just hunting his stuff down
    he hunts my stuff down
    its a race FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU
    who won?

    again any advice/comments welcome

    Game 1
    me vs a toss on steppes
    he tries to offensive pylon me
    he eventually gets a few settled down w/ some cannons
    he gets down 6-7 cannons outside my base
    i turtle w/ immo/stalkers
    what happens nxt is pure poetry (lol)


    Game 2
    me vs a zerg on metalopolis
    those who know me, know zerg is probably my weakest matchup, if the zerg applies any sort of pressure on me i just cant handle it
    anyways
    i find out we are closed spawn (im suprised cause his OL never goes near my base @ begin)
    i notice he did a sort of extreme FE (hatch BEFORE pool i think)
    so i quickly go on the offensive, he manages to hold it off @ first, but the power of 4gateways will not be denied!

    Game 3
    me vs a toss on steppes
    he ends up getting a pylon in on me and warps in massively
    i need to rewatch this and see EXACTLY what i did wrong
    any tips?


    thx for anyone who MIGHT be reading/watching
    would love to hear any feedback concerning the reps and what not.

    Just let him be, theres no reason to derail this thread argueing about something so stupid. Just continue posting your replays as you like, I'm sure some people like watching fellow WCR people play.

    'The good, the bad, and THE UGLY'

    this replay pack definitely has lots of ugly, even when i win its like pitiful
    sorry, i think midday gaming im not that sharp so i make lots of mistakes
    in one of the games i made gas before gateway, i forgot i didnt build a gateway
    wow.... lol anyways

    Game 1
    Here im put up against a random player on steppes
    he randoms zerg (fantastic)
    im pretty sure he 6 or 8 pooled me.
    i learned vs random/zerg @ small 2player maps i NEED to go 10 gate @ this level
    too many zergs i play go fast lingz
    its starting to frustrate me at the rate of 6/8pooling zergs @ diamond level, but oh well!!

    Game 2
    During this epic battle i am up against the famous Spydermine! (he's toss)
    ok maybe he isnt famous, anyways he goes 4wgate, i go 2/3 gate - 1robo
    we push at same time, my army knocks on his door step, thinking no one is home i decide to go in
    BAD IDEA
    he utterly rapes me poor units, including that sexy immo
    i rally up the troops for a counter, he just pokes in backs up and expands
    i push out again w/ some more immo this time!
    4wgate vs 3wgate/1robo
    we have a scuttlebutt @ his natural, its not looking good for me as he throws down 2 more wgate

    Game 3
    in this fisticuffs i get vsed a zerg on delta quadtrant
    Again, i get ravaged by a quick hitting zerg
    another game where i was all sorts of out of wack
    i think i was trying to warpgate/phx/who knows
    really bad game on my part, late cyber, late gway, late EVERYTHING
    ravaged, utterly ravaged

    Game 4
    This scuffle takes place on the oldest RTS map ever, Lost Temple
    We spawn cross map, i even went 10gate to make sure no 6/8pool lol
    i transition into (he stole one of my gasses, so that set me back) double gate, mass-ish Phx's
    he already had committed to 6-8 muta and had begun harassing me ever so lightly
    the phx HARD counter the muta and i run circles around him w/ like 4 phx
    He hard counters w/ hydra and some evo chambers, not soon enough though
    i got tons of OL kills and some queen kills
    while all this is going on i was slowly teching to blink stalkers (slowly is key word)
    as i begin amassing a 4wgate army we clash outside his base, many units were lost, he backs up a bit after destorying most of my army
    we rebuild, i throw in 4-6 Vrays and continue the phx harass, at this point he has like tripple spore colon @ both his bases
    i take my 3rd base we continue fighting!
    VR FIGHTING!
    gg's were had

    Game5
    this epic battle has me in a mirror on steppes
    curiously enough i begin to wonder how players as bad as myself/andrae can make diamond.... oh well
    he opts for a 1base phx harass (wtf?)
    i opt for a 2 base immo/wgate army
    needless to say its pretty 1sided, even with him getting 6-7 probe kills and gravitating my stalkers in our final confrontation
    i try telling him the peril of phx in mirror (wtf, who goes phx?)
    he gg's and thats a wrap!

    'Whatever doesnt kill you, makes you stronger'

    Game 1
    me vs a zerg on steppes
    he early pressues me and i am just too slow
    god i hate rushing zergs lol

    Game 2
    This epic barracks floating game happened to take place on steppes of war
    the game starts w/ some basic scouting then he goes into turtle mode.
    He continues to frustrate any attempts of scouting once he throws up 2, NOT JUST 1, but 2 freaking sensor towers
    putting me on the super defensive
    he takes a huge hit into my expo than backs off
    i take my army the roundabout way and attack him from a different angle taking advantage of his immobility
    i beat back the attacking force and go on the offensive
    at this point he has 3 bases i have 2ish
    who wins? *cliffhanger*

    Game 3
    This game is brought to you by the letter 'x' as in, PHOENIX!
    Me and this zerg face off on the great map 'desert oasis'
    I start off w/ the mindset that im going to mass phx or something, i noticed he's playing it safe and not rushing me (finally!!)
    i even think ima proxy pylon, but by the time im about to build my sg, he's OL has left my base so i decide to just build in my base
    i begin to harass w/ phoenix and the game goes from there
    i transition into an expo and pushing w/ 5 wgates

    thats it for today as its time for me to goto work!!

    gl/hf everyone
