Only just noticed this.

Grats mate, I'm pretty jelly. I remember way back when I only got as far as low diamonds... then I literally couldn't win a single game for weeks. Just quit all together icon_sad.gif.

I wish you luck mate icon_biggrin.gif

Ya, this has been happening to me. I couldn't win shit for the longest time. I feel like i'm starting to make a come back though.

Also, I still believe, bronze was the hardest to get out of. A combination of smurf plats, diamonds, and masters players. Bronze players that only cheese. (as zerg at least) You can't follow any form of timings, because the bronze leagues are so bad that everything comes super late or super early.

On top of that, you're still trying to do learn counters, hotkeys, and basically the entire game.

No joke, unless things get a LOT more difficult as i get closer to masters, I will always believe bronze was the hardest to get out of.

I was stuck in bronze for the longest time no joke. Highest I got to was silver..................

Well the game is like broken now or something tbh.

I'm in Silver or Bronze or someshit and can't get out of it, and I know I'm doing way better than that. Because they don't actually reset the hidden scores after each season, they've made it so any players that are stuck in bronze are pretty much stuck there unless they can make up for a year and a half's bad playing.

If you don't get ranked for an entire season. Your hidden mmr gets reset. Or at least that's what i heard.

What I've heard is the hidden MMRs have never been reset icon_razz.gif.

But yeah, noone but Blizzard would know I suppose.

Love how the resident tough guy is happy to talk trash on an internet forum but back pedals as soon as he is called out. Typical coward. No doubt he'll respond to this with excessive bravado in order to restore his rightful place as a fully fledged internet badass.

I like to make werewolf...

Look forward to it man. What race you playing as? and what league are you in.

I hadn't played in a long time and got demoted to plat (just started working a new job. didn't have time)

but my practicing is back on par with what it should be. Let me know if you want to play.

SageHarmonic:404 if you want to add me

Good 441 I believe is mine, I'll add you in like 30-40 mins. I'm watching some review for Tremors 3.

I'm in Silver atm @.@

I used to be in plat, long ago... I think you ended up much better than me.
I play Zerg atm, but I've also been handy with Protoss.

Terran has always been my downfall, whether I'm playing with them or against them.

Honestly I think SC2 was very poorly made. I wrote a 4-part series on it linked below. Feel free to disagree with me, my opinions are not fact or gospel. It is just how I feel about the topic.

Part 1 - http://voices.yahoo....032.html?cat=19

Part 2 - http://voices.yahoo....318.html?cat=19

Part 3 - http://voices.yahoo....740.html?cat=19

I didn't bother reading it all, I agreed with the first sentence. The matchmaking in SC2 is most certainly broken... the problem is this doesn't effect the actual competitive players in anyway. Just the people who don't matter... you know that casuals like us awesome2.png.

I swear on my life, that i would be masters by now if it wasn't for protoss. They're literally fucking unstoppable.

I fucking give up. If i play a toss on a 2 player map, I WILL, 6 pool him. I'd rather roll the dice and hope i can beat them then draw it out for 30 minutes.

My problem is that it can hold off pressure, yes. But it's impossible to break that fucking wall. Then all they have to do is sit behind the fucking wall, tech up, and there's no way you can match there tech in time to stop their army.

Referring to stephano style here.

I see what you're saying.

The problem with Stephano style is (watch Day9's ZVP, came out either last night or the night before) exactly what you were saying. If you can't get past that first wall and you let them tech up, yes you lose. But if you can spread their forces thin and throw yourself past that first wall, you should succeed in almost all cases.

But yeah, the big problem with Stephano's style is that late game is basically GG. He hasn't properly created a simple, smooth tech switch between his early game and his late game and that's why it has so many problems late game. Day9 makes recommendations for this, but even he seems kind of puzzled by the problem.

I seriously no longer think it's safe for me to be in the same room as a protoss in real life.
