I wasn't trying to invalidate your point or anything, just needlessly clarifying what eedok was saying. icon_razz.gif

Also, I got the key from FutureShop, but it doesn't work. There's an extra character somewhere, 'cause when I try to copy-paste it in, it's one character too many to fit in...

PvT, not TvP.

I mean that as the Zerg you can't engage the Terran ball head on. A lot of the early-mid game is delaying and breaking the Terran push. Even if you outnumber the Terran units 3-1, you still can't just attack where you want to, you have to try and flank, separate, pick-off and otherwise avoid attacking it all at once.

The same could be said for ZvP also, once the Protoss gets a few Colossi, but I've been getting more frustrated with the Terran ball as of late.

Solution.

Banelings.


Lots and lots of Banelings.

Yup! Just tried out burrowing banelings at my natural choke and waiting for the MM push. Worked wonders.

I've only ever really used Blings as a harassment unit and have never really had much success with integrating them into my main force.

Banelings and infestors are all you'll ever need (and hydra if they get any air)

Yeah Fungal growth as support for Hydra or Hydra/Roach is just insane.

Yeah, they're pretty cool now that they do 8 damage. However, they move so slow that, unless you use them alongside Fungal Growth in battle, the enemy units can just move back and wait a few seconds.

Of course, this might work in your favour.

You ungrateful swine! /shakes-fist

I don't even have a key, 'cause I'm too busy taking a corporate dildo up my ass with Future Shop's abysmal customer service. After 5 days of waiting and fighting with customer support, I got an invalidly formatted key in my inbox, which is like 8 characters longer than a real key. If I didn't know any better, I'd say Future Shop just threw in random alpha-numeric characters to attempt to ease the complaints. Many others got the same fake key, and when they called customer service, they told him to take the key to Blizzard...

Let's add that to the boycott list.

Make sure you go to 'add game' rather 'item code redemption'. I thought my key was too long too but it turned out i was entering it on the wrong screen. Oh boy you're going to feel silly if this is what you did icon_razz.gif

i got thor rushed for the first time (i was zerg). i didnt realise how quick you could get it- he pretty much blocked his entrance and built like 1 marine and went straight to factory, starport+armoury. his first thor just popped out as i broke through his barricade with my bane/lings. i looked at the replay and i mega facepalmed. i could've had the game sooooo easily if i had just scouted/kept pushing with my ling/banelings. fml. i just got freaked out when i saw thor and decided to tech (to be fair he was being annoying by using his medivac micro with the thor on my mineral line so i couldnt attack him with my lings)

if you baneling rush properly there is no way he can have a thor out in time.

honestly though, best counter is literally fast tech to lair with double gas and a 14pool 15 hatch, get infestor den AND hydra den as soon as lair finishes, then mind control thor and snipe the medivac. Played a top platinum player who tried the thor drop today, and completely raped him with this.
