Well that's not entirely true, very briefly Mech was semi viable against Protoss, so of course it was nerfed almost immediately.

Dream wouldn't stand a chance in a bo7 against maru, especially now when it seems maru is the best he's been in years. Not to mention that maru vs rogue is the best finals you could get for gsl standards.
if you can want to see maru/rogue get stomped you should wait for the international tournaments when they play against the EU big 3 honestly

You use a shift command to set them to burrow before they get to where you want to burrow them. If you're burrowing them reactively the Protoss has already won.

>>562475
there's 2 more years of esl funding guaranteed I'm pretty sure so it won't be dying just yet

Funding is irrelevant in the face of the blatantly retarded current state of Protoss being guaranteed to remain in perpetuity. You can't even balance the current patch with maps like you can in BW because SC2 Protoss suffers least out of all races from map design.

Kinda shit semis honestly, evolving the tvp meta my ass. Hopefully the finals will be better. Also really surprised that Trap didn't realise maru was going for proxy, he always goes for cheese when it's match point. Even reynor realised this and punished him in IEM and he never trained with him.

a skill they havent gained yet, perhaps next balance patch

>>562887
Trap did send his probe to search for a proxy, but he failed to find it. I bet he expected a proxy starport rather than a good old 2rax, which explains his building placement.
>>
>>562898
Yeah I saw the probe, but that 2rax placement in the 3rd on lightshade is too common to not check, trap gave up the search too fast imo.

Matters on the match up. In ZvZ it is EXTREMELY rare to get past 2 hatch. Usually the game is on 1 hatch.

For ZvT you have to options. Either go 2 hatch or 3 hatch. 2 hatch is for you trying to get fast tech while keeping a low economy, usually mutas while getting a fast 3rd. 3 hatch means you are taking a more defensive stance to the game building up drones before teching. 2 hatch is the meta right now.

ZvP you actually have a lot of options. Early on lings will dominate protoss units, thus forcing Protoss to defend. In this matchup you will find that it is meta to get to 3 base early and then either going hydra or going spire into hydra. You could also go 9-7-3. You have 9 drones in the main, 7 in his nat. and 3 in his 3rd. This ment for hydra busting the protoss nat. but the reason it is so strong is because Z can still switch into a macro game. What matters is scouting the protoss.

While hatches are important the bigger thing is drones. You need drones to pump out the hatches to then pump out the units. Focus on scouting your opponents plan and playing accordingly.

For ZvT specifically focus on Lurker plays, you will win more games. The hard part of Muta Micro isn't the Micro itself but the Macro you HAVE to do behind it or you will just die.
>>

idk tvp is my best matchup, and I just macro and make ghosts and marauders and libs and then because tosstards has no idea how to play the game other than throwing aoe in my general direction, I just win

friendly reminder for terrans to try going 12 depot sometime.
tech rush.
don't build SCV at beginning.
pull the last SCV to get to mineral line to place depot at ramp.
build depot with first 100 minerals.
can be folded into probably any build and makes it happen like 20 seconds earlier at the cost of one less worker at the start.

What happened to Shuttle? Why is he considered so bad these days? He won the first ASL. And it's not like other pros weren't in it. Best, Flash, Larva, etc were in it.

bro, that was half a decade ago

Tanks feel like dogshit if you're trying to push of off 2 base economy. I was wondering why pros just make widowmines even versus colossus when 3 raxxing and those mines are too good in denying chargelots/aggressive blinks, almost like budget early game emp's on Zealot/Stalker if they hit. Even when the push is deflected by Colossi countering mines, you'd usually have an armory up to get 2/2 + cloaked mines and if the Toss only has 1 or 2 observers, I usually win the game of off dropping the ineffective but cloaked mines on their mineral lines while I go 2/3 factory tank + 2 starport reactor Lib range and Ghosts.

their bullshit is the fact that you can play the game without even looking at the fucking battles because every unit except mutas get in position perfectly with attack move behind whatever you want to fuck up (except at the main ramp versus terran where you have to pull out the sick micro of left clicking on a blocking depot to blow it up and then left clicking in the far end of the base so they can walk in a single line)

not him but you're retarded if you think infestors and vipers combined have anything on ghosts/high templars. Zerg doesn't even have anti-caster spells which both terran and toss have and can decide important fights. Not that I agree with the guy you quoted, the whole point of zerg is that you have lower quality units and you overwhelm your opponent with your superior economy rather than bullshit units

i picked protoss all the way back in WoL because i thought they looked cool and had sick abilities like storm, now i feel guilty playing them because they're the most popular and powerful race at all levels except tournament level
>>
>>579603
They would do much better and well received if they weren't gimmicky.
Example? A permanently invisible unit with blink and can spawn anywhere with a pylon that either wins or loses you the game based on how fast detection can be made
>>
>>579603
who cares, just play what you want to play. Besides, as long as you don't cheese all the time for free MMR inflation and you try to get better at the fundamentals, you shouldn't really be feeling guilty...
the reason protoss doesn't do well in tournaments is because most of its playerbase relies on gimmicks to get to a high level but isn't actually good enough to beat the top of the top. Stats, trap (some of the time), neeb, showtime are good examples of non-cheesy tosses.
>>
sc2 protoss has gone through so many redesigns and bandaid fixes it feels like a living frankenstein abortion
>>
gabe talking about maru rogue btw

this final was pretty disappointing. was rogue keeping this build in his bag o'tricks and then just decided to spam it? dick move, made for boring watching. at least the last game was a bit more interesting, even if maru still got outplayed
>>
>>579904
it wasn't rogue playing well, he was just doing standard all ins because they were working, that and knowing maru's playstyle well. Maru's builds were just crap, even someone like cure would have beaten rogue in these games. And some games he just threw, like game 2 and 5.

PSA for any terran that watched gsl and doesn't know: anti-armor missile and stim marines hard counter roach/rav in any number.
anti-armor missile also skullfucks protoss harder than even EMP
>>
>>580394
isnt it the equivalent of a single armor upgrade

>>
>>580464
a single armor upgrade difference can make or break a fight bro...
>>
>>580464
Isn't it 3 upgrades?
And it goes into negatives, so if they only have 1 armor it goes to -2 and they take 2 extra damage from every attack

>>
>>581645
I saw someone do this with an ebay for their first rax and I do it as well now.
>>
>>580394
>anti-armor missile also skullfucks protoss harder than even EMP
I don't see why the shield armor bit is important when protoss never gets shield upgrades and EMP wipes those all out anyways. Anti-Armor missile also works better against high-armor targets, not low-armor targets. Basic subtractive damage mechanics. 10-9 vs 10-6 is a 400% multiplier to damage, 10-0 vs 10+3 is a 130% multiplier. That said, marines do little enough damage per hit that it's always a meaningful DPS boost.
>>
>>581636
damn that story at the end was pretty sad, glad it worked out for him
>>
>>581687
tosses not getting shield upgrades is largely irrelevant to the effectiveness of the ability as it still increases damage even if the target has 0 armor (they just get negative armor and take more damage). EMP is much more reliable though as it is on a good combat unit and immediately effective and has better utility and you get to spam it because ghosts are good.
>>
when i watch protoss players control large armies a lot of the time they'll stutter step he whole army, including zealots. is this a mistake or is there some logic to it? wouldn't it be better to let the zealots do their thing and just stutter step with the ranged units?

I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're refering to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I've recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX.

Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called Linux, and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project.

There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use. Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine's resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called Linux distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux!
