Game Length :
start the game off, Zakaran left early. Nothing even provoked
him, he just LEFT! (Silly eh?) That wasn't of any importance,
because the game was already clearly going to be in favor of
the other two opponents.
player started with mining minerals. Of course, this was
common practice among Starcraft players, but I hoped they were
not going to be common.
As soon as he
had 9 drones, blue decided to expand, because he wasn't
expecting a rush (Zakaran had yet to leave) He also started on
another expansion, at almost the dead center of the map.
Brown, on the other hand, wanted a more secure mining spot,
and built a command center to be floated to the top-rightmost
corner of the map, a mineral only expansion.
apparently looking for a high-tech arsenal of goodies, because
he skimped on that barracks, and stuck with only one for
several minutes. Blue, who had the advantage of three mining
sites early on, went for a very normal Zerg build, that would
no doubt, involve many hydralisks.
When Zakaran finally
left, (Possibly because he was upset for lack of natural
expansion?) Brown was left with a problem. He had built
up, hoping that his two adversaries would lack the ability to
take on eachother, and deal with his high-tech gadgets. Now he
was faced with himself vs a zerg opponent, who thus far had 0
military units, and 2 fledging expansions, one without any
Seeing, with a
scouting SCV, the expansion near the middle of the map, brown
dispatched 8 vultures to eliminate all he could from the
creep. He did not succeed, but he did kill all the
drones before two sunken colonies we're morphed, easily taking
care of the threat.
home and at his 2 expansions (3rd expansion building, due
north of his 2nd expansion that had just been attacked) blue
had started ammasing his hydralisks. Brown, who had begun
making units LONG ago, clearly had a lead, and was now
expanding to another island, this one just north of blue's 3rd
expansion, at the top of the map. During the time that his
vultures we're at the expansion wrecking havoc, he had
constructed 2 starports, a Science Facility, and was now
working on a covert ops.
Not long went
bye before Blue, with his supreme income, was able to get a
large force of atleast 60 hydralisks staggered among his
expansions, along with 6 queens, probabally with broodling and
ensnare on their minds. Unfortunately, his expansion just
south of Brown's new island expansion was discovered
undefended. (Save for 2 sunken colonies) 12 marines, along
with medics and 4 Science Vessels attacked the expansion,
defensive matrix on the marines, and irradiating 3 nearby
Blue needed to
make a dent in browns economy fast, or the Science Vessels,
marines, and medics would all force him to resign. 6 science
vessels were found over a cliff, near the middle expansion,
and they were irradiating everyunit they could! That certainly
was not nice.
motivated Blue into a agressive mode, sending a horde of
hydralisks, with queens right behind, straight up north to
where the marines that destroyed the expansion were still
hanging about. While doing that, he also mutated 2 spires, a
hive, and a greater spire (In that order) The hydralisks,
which were now moving in on the north half of brown's sturdy
base, had been upgraded to 2/2, while the marines we're still
2/1. Even with the upgrades, the hydralisks were no match for
the 30 or so marines, with medic support.
To counter the
attack, brown sent a ghost down to investigate the middle
expansion, and possibly damage it. With his patented Lazer, he
pointed a little red dot on the hatchery there, and had the
Nuke Silo's send the Nuclear Missile inside on a path straight
for it. At the same time, 9 overlords, with 4 trailing a bit
behind, were floating cryptically towards brown's base. During
this time he started up a gas only expansion at about 10:00
position on the map.
Also, 4 mutalisks
were ahead, morphing slowly into guardians. The terran base,
unsuspecting, was empty. Almost like a ghost town, except
there were several hapy SCV's mining away. All the marines,
medics, and science vessels were off to destroy the Zerg
expansion that had been weakened by the nuke.
When the hydralisks
landed, and the guardians thundered overhead, there were about
30 SCV's, 12 marines, and no medics on the site. 30 hydralisks
rolled into the base first, followed by more. When the attack
force returned, all that was left was one frantic SCV that
looked to be at the end of his line, backed into a corner by
the Hydralisks. Luckily for that SCV, the several marines were
able to constantly come out of 4 barracks, and eventually
whittle the horde down to nothing.
Unamused by the
slaughter, Brown started rebuilding his SCVS, and had them
repair the burning Command Center. Then several zerglings
rolled into the base, all killed before they could reach the
The game had
reached a state of stand off, niether player had enough forces
to do anything, and were frantically trying to gather
minerals. During this time, blue expanded to a nearby mineral
expansion, and also the top left starting location. Brown
expanded to the spot he had taken from blue earlier. (Not the
nuked one, radiation kills SCV's mining utensils)
One he had enough to
attack, 11 marines and 2 medics attacked the top left
expansion, taking down the first hatchery before
reinforcements could be spawned. To counter this 32 zerglings
were dropped on the top right island, forcing the
Command Center to lift off.
Brown was now down to 2
expansions again, while blue had 4. This was not good at all,
and a long line of marines headed towards the Zerg
Main. At the same time, 5 overlords left to take out the 2
As a premptive
strike, Brown nuked the sh!t out of the expansion next to
Blue's main. While the marines and medics cleaned up that
mess, Blue had taken out all brown expansions, and was now
preparing to drop on his main. Of coruse, since brown had been
continualy pumping marines, medics and the odd firebat, he
easily handled the drop, with the loss of 1 marine that was
where the units dropped.
Back at blue's
main, buildings were falling very fast, and 12 hydralisks are
no match for 8 Science Vessels.
As of now, Blue had a severe
mineral advantage, but had nothing to build with, not even a
SPAWNING POOL! (However, he did get a lair morphing before his
first one died)
methodically destroying every base Blue had, with marines and
medics. The few hydralisks Blue had were no match for the
increasing supply of marines from brown (Thanks to a new
Blue was now down two 2
bases, and one base that was starting, located behind
Zakaran's old base.
Brown had 21 total
science vessels on the map, and was currently running over
what he thought was blue's last base, the top left expansion.
Luckily for him, he also found another base, an island in the
bottom right, with just enough building room for a hatchery, a
pool, and a den.
Facing certain death,
Blue almost gave up. His last chance was to build up a force
on his remaining minerals. At the site of Zakaran's old base
(Behind the mineral line) 5 hatcheries were spawned, and many
hydralisks were pumped out, and rallied behind the hatcheries.
All of this could easily fit in one screen.
When the last
building fell, at Blue's island expansion, brown was
disturbed, and asked blue to "just ally me I only have a few
minutes" This seemed humorous to blue, who immediately
followed by ramming 60+ hydralisks up his ass.
GameOverZ: NOOOO I CHECKED
GameOverZ: dead dead
TheRubberDucky: You checked
TheRubberDucky: omg zerg
might still win ^_^
continued to pour onto the battlefield, eliminating all but
one of brown's bases, which had 5 barracks but not enough
supply depots to make non-stop. Blue started sending
hydralisks and overlords to key-points of the map he wasn't
currently at, and sent his ever-growing army of hydralisks at
Brown stood no chance at
all, but he had to go, so he left, and I congratulated
Roaming~Spirit on coming back from extremely unfavorable odds.
(I actually considered saying "brown u win gg" because it was
so blatently obvious that he was going to win.
Roaming~Spirit is a great comeback
player, and also one lucky bastard=] At one point, a marine
was actually FIRING on the protoss extractor, but left in
search of better targets.
GameOverZ had no problem with his recon
skills, he just wasn't searching behind the minerals for
