SC2 12/3 Featured Game

Still Awful at Stopping Cheese, but Can Still Pull off the Upset Sometimes!

Who doesn’t love a good zergling rush? You thought you were just going to sit back and have a polite and friendly macro game against zerg, but then those zergling ruffians just have to come in and ruin everything! Ironically, I was probably in a better position for dealing with this because he played random (instead of positioning myself for the usual forge fast expand against zerg).

Being the true 6 pool rushing gentlemen that my opponent was, he decided to throw out a friendly GG (in other words, get out and let me move on to my next cheese victim!). Well as the expression goes, don’t count your zerglings before they hatch!

If I was better at staying calm during cheese attacks, I would of realized that this is the first unit I should of gotten in this situation. Luckily, I am sure that zealots love spawning just to get cut down by a bloodthirsty pack of zerglings.

I know that I drag some games out way too long, but I would rather be certain of a victory than rush in for a win and possibly have my tactic backfire. Also, there is just something so rewarding about seeing a company of collosus melt a zerg army, especially when you opponent decided that the game was over a long time ago :).

    Nothing quite like roasting hydralisks on an open fire (or extended thermal lance).
