I did my normal
(BTW: what is better in your opinion - Gate-Assimilator or
Assimilator-Gate?). My goal was to get an early HT/DT/Reaver drop
I xpanded with my first shuttle at the island
below my main, I also scoutet with this
shuttle and found him bottom right, as he had 2 bunkers and a few Turrets around his peon line, I decided to
forget the HT/DT/Reaver drop and instead dropped a Reaver and a HT at my xpansion for defense
Being the great player I am, I also built a 2nd Nexus at the xpansion, because otherwise
I wouldnt have been able to mine any ressources there. A Forge at home, along with a StarGate and a
Beacon were also set up.
My strategy was: hold my xpansion and dont let him get an
xpansion, so I fortified mine with a few cannons and a
which produced a few Goons
One of my Observers found his xpansion at the bottom
middle - tons of turrets, so I knew he has also made an
brain: "You cant let this be a fair matchup! you have to
have more ressources than him cuz you suck!"
Necrosausage!: "shuddup. Whos to blame that I suck,
Anyways, my brain was right, I really had to get ahead in
ressources again, so I xpanded to the top
small island, and also
shipped a Reaver and a Goon there as defense. At home, I
researched DWeb and built another gate
However, I didnt even have the time to complete warping in cannons there, as he made the first
offensive step in this game by dropping me with 3 Dropships filled
with 2 or 3 tanks and other Terran stuff I couldnt identify (I dont know Terran too well u
My Reaver+Dragoon there were helpless, however I
shuttled 2 Reavers, 1 DT, 1 Temp and a Reaver there from my homebase, which dealt
with the enemies - I was forced to cancel the Nexus however (or
rather: I was dumb enough to do so when it was 95%
done, because I feared he could kill it before my reinforcements
I rebuilt this xpansion, and just as I finished managing my
xpansion and starting to actually think about offensive
strategies, my main got brutally dropped by 3 dropships with
assorted Terran troops
My Sairs tried to interfere, but those
wimpy flyers didnt even kill a single dropship. As a return for
their uselessness, I let two of them die in Marine fire,
He sieged his Tanks behind my Nexus, and only after my Nexus was already destroyed, I could
finally wipe the Terran forces off my land by killing his Marines with a brand-new Carrier, and then laughing at his helpless
stupid little tanks as they couldnt shoot at the Interceptors that where killing them. In the
meantime I also sent a brutal, invincible, massive attack force
Goons, 2 Reavers, 1 DT and a Carrier to his newly started xpansion on
the left of the middle islands
and wiped it out
brain: "Good boy, its looking really good, I would suggest
that you now kill his..."
even waste a single thought about being more offensive, because
the hammer stroke again
on my main - this time the 3 dropships full of Terran stuff razed almost all of my mains
buildings, before I could finally defeat them with storm and
another brand-new Carrier.
the last remainers of the 2nd Terran strike
against my main are pulverized by a sexy Carrier (his name is
However, my urge to do something offensive was so big that I
didnt even look at the battle at home, but took the force that
did just defeat his new xpansion (2 Reavers, 3 Goons
and a DT -
still the lone DT I built at the start for some twisted reason)
and tried to hurt him as well. My Carrier went south to his xpansion at the
bottom middle island, and the Interceptors drew so much turret fire, that my Shuttles werent even scratched till they
could unload (My Sairs were already annilihated at this point so I
had to use the Carrier). However, the Carrier Commander also thought he would be cool
if he flew into turret range, and my sucky micro didnt
get him away from there before he was in the red. In the
meantime, my brutal, massive, invincible attack force... was devastated by a few Marines and a helping squad of Wraiths - the Wraiths also ate my Shuttles because I thought it would be cool
not to move them away after they unloaded (played too much Zerg -
thought I would need detection...). The only damage I did was
destroying about 3 Turrets on his island, lets look if it was worth
|1 Carrier with 8
|2 Reavers with 5
Uh oh... maybe I better save my troops next time :-
A few seconds later, I was still wondering how my invincible
attack force didnt even damage anything but a few Turrets, he finally totally wiped out my main (there were only a few random
buildings left, and it was also almost mined-out, so no biggie
"Ok. Thats gotta hurt. But I still have 2 running bases,
while he has a single xpansion. Ill just build a ton of Reavers
and Goons, and Carriers, and..."
Necrosausage!s brain: "Boy, you only have a Gateway left,
all your production buildings are gone"
Indeed, my only remaining production building was a Gateway on my 1st xpansion, so I took my
time to rebuild (stuffing the small islands so full of buildings
that my units couldnt even move)
When he was razing my main, the following conversation took
"Wow. Close game."
Well... he didnt think he could lose now, but I knew I could win,
mwuahahahahah... *cough cough* err... hahaha
And you know why I still knew I could win, because he still had
only 1 xpansion! HAHA. What a lamer, mwuahahaha...
brain: "Err boy, I really dont like to tell you that, but
your Observer just found a refinery at the right small island,
looks like he already xpanded there...
Whom! Tanks can fire from island to island...
how gay... Blizzard outta fix that in the next patch, like give
em the range of Zerglings and stuff...
Well, those cheesy Tanks killed the Assimilator at my 1st xpansion, and pounded on
the StarGate on my 2nd one. Being the great player I am, I
shuttled a lone Reaver to one of his tanks, killed it, and retreated.
"Wow, Im such a great tactician I cant believe it, do you
remember when I once even..."
Necrosausage!s brain: "Wake up boy, hes killing your 1st
DAMN! Whats going on at my 1st xpansion??? Seems like while I was
busy microing the Reaver and thinking how damned cool
I was, he dropped 3 dropships of Infantery there...
Well, I had a Templar there, and 3 storms later 2 Rines and a Medic remained. Well, now that there
were only 2 Rines left, my other forces... errr... no
other forces, well at least 2 Rines take hell of a time to finish an
xpansion, even with the help of Wraiths, so while he was killing my 1st
xpansion, I Reaver-Dropped his 2nd one, killing a bunch of SCVs there.
He is slowly killing my 1st xpansion - While
I am Reaver-Dropping his 2nd xpansion until a squad of Wraiths
ends the fun - the same squad of Wraiths later helps the two
rines and their bitch to raze my xpansion
While he was slowly killing my xpansion, I dropped his 2nd
xpansion again with a Reaver - still no defenses there. This
time I got all the SCVs before my Reaver was killed by Wraiths again (he even tried to attack the Reaver with SCVs, which was a bad move - kids, dont
try this at home...
However, he now started to push into my last island with Tanks shooting from the island
in the east. I flew my last 2 Carriers and 2
but I knew I couldnt hold this island, so I sneaked out a single Probe at the Top Right starting spot and
started to build a new cool base there - I had around 2000 minerals so I could build lots of cool
stuff there and he didnt know that I was
While the Probe set up Cannons, 3 Gateways, 1 RobFac, and
other Protoss stuff at
my new, fashionable island, teahead was slowly killing my last
xpansion with some mixed Terran units (Im pretty sure no Zerg units were involved), I also evacuated
last Carrier and 2 Reavers to my new home (my last military units at
What is happening at this pic:
First two pix: teahead is killing my cannon defense on one side
of the island with long-range tanks, and then drops a shitload of
The two smaller pix: One of teaheads tanks was standing on my new
main island, so I sent a single Zealot that just got out of my
Gateways there to kill it - maybe this stupid act of revenge was
the reason he scanned the island to see where this Zealot came
from :- :-/
The last pic: My new main. Cooler and bigger than the old, and
heavily defended. This one wont fall!!!
Necrosausage!: "not yet :)"
just wanted to say "just kill my last buildings", but
he already scanned my island - how cheap...
teahead: "I know"
Necrosausage!: (still hoping): "??? whatcha know?"
teahead: "Top right. I scanned there"
ComSat! How gay... really good players such as me dont ever use
ComSat - did I use ComSat in this game - NO! I also didnt built
any gay Wraiths, I only used units that require real skill, like
Dragoons or Corsairs - he didnt build a single Goon the whole
brain: "Err... I dont like to say that but he was Terran,
Terran cant build any Protoss units..."
Well, no problem for me tho. I still had my inpenetrable last
island, and he only had his main, and two running xpansions.
Actually, it couldnt be better.
Well, for some bloody reason he dared to drop my base from two
sides with 4 dropships with Wraith support and wiped my sorry ass outta dire
random scenes from the end...
Necrosausage!s brain: "next time use me boy"
the scores - I can keep up with him at
units, and Im slightly better at ressources, however the building
score shows who used his units and ressources better...
Finally, here is Necrosausage!s famous "not-really-as-cool-as-YRM-ones-but-still-kinda-animated-and-stuff-kinda-minimap"ä
"ä" - dont dare to copy it for
this is MY idea ;-)
= Yellow (for
Protoss), teahead = blue (for Terran)
1) Reavers/Observers AND Temps suck up too much gas, I shoulda
went sairs/dweb/Reaver or Templars and built the other branch
2) You cant think about making PsiRaids or Reaver dropping with
DWeb when you are under constant pressure
3) You cant think about making pictures when you are under
constant pressure, thats why I dont have any from the start of
4) You cant even do ANYTHING when being under constant pressure,
actually, being under constant pressure pretty much sucks
5) A single Carrier can be as effective as 2 DWebs against
Turrets (as long as the Interceptors last)
6) Shuttles dont provide detection like Overlords - thus, you
better fly them away after unloading :-/ :-
7) If you research DWeb, it would be wise to use it as well
8) I hate Terrans on islands! No DT rushes for me...
PS: Here is something funny - last time I played a 2v2 vs Koreans
on Hunters, 2 of them were constantly setting the network for
extra high latency. One of them must have did this around 50
times in the whole game. Strange, because its impossible to be so
fast with the mouse to see the message appear 7 times on the
screen, maybe with hotkeys, but I doubt it. And even if you are
so fast, I still see no point in it. Could it be that it has to
do with some sort of bug or hack?
Hereis the pic: (there were times where the message appeared much
more often at the screen, but being the lamer I am I forgot to
take a pic then...)
PPS: Dont think I typed all the color stuff in HTML - I just
formatted it in Frontpage, and then copied the whole HTML code
here, actually I totally suck at HTML - the only thing I can do
w/o help is inserting pix, I cant even change fonds/bold/italic
and such stuff :-p :-b
PPPS: Sorry for the bad
quality pix, but otherwise theyd have grown too big
PPPPS: I hope even the
YRM-spoiled readers like it at least a bit :-D
