Yeeeehaaaaah ! Hahaha funny funny funny. You guys
rox at saying complete non-sense stuff. Keep up the good work
! I'll always be there taking some screen shots :P. Okay, sit
back, grab some beer and nachos, and be ready to enjoy the
Episode 2 of the StarCraft serie.
The day start as any other day on this dark
region of Fading Realms. Altough the Protoss Rebels expect an
attack at any time, there is still no sign of activity from
the Federation. General Ko[B]old as
heard the rumor that Acturus Mensk hired the dangerous
Mercenary T_Mac to capture and
eliminate him. This is why, from the past two weeks, Protoss
probe's are patrolling the area to detect any sign of
Radio Officer: General, we have lost
the communication with one of our probe that was patrolling
the sector south. It's probably just a
Ko[B]old: There is no malfunction !
This is it, the federation have landed. The confrontation is
our only option now, we can't run forever. Send another probe
to confirm the Terran presence and prepare our troops for the
battle that coming.
And the battle begins ... Ko[B]old decide to build his base outside
the main camp, between the two ramps that give acces to his base. Ko[B]old warp a cybernectic core right
after his gateway and immediatly start the dragoons range
upgrades. While he get out 3-4 dragoons of his gateway, Ko[B]old slowly tech to the templar
archives for those infamous Dark Templars. With only one
gateway operational, i was wondering what our General was up
to until i see that stargate being warped beside his nexus.
Fast carriers ? Scouts ?? Dweb ??? Well, we will know soon
On the south region of Fading Realm, Mercenary
T_Mac is also preparing his troops
for the assault and is going with a conventional startegy for
all those Terran vs Protoss wars. With one barracks pumping
marines and a fast rafinery, T_Mac
build up two factorys and add two machine shop as soon as they
finish building. While tanks are on their way, a starport is
under contruction. Later on, a science facility will be build
and T_Mac will use the starport to
build science vessels.
As you know now, Ko[B]old teched to dark templar and as
the templar archives being warped, we can see some dts coming
out of the gateway. While the first dark templar is making his
way to the terran base, Ko[B]old
take this unit advantage to get his first expansion on the
east side of the north sector. A Nexus is now being warped.
You all probably also noticed that T_Mac dont intend to die on dark templars
attack and have built an E-Bay before teching to science
vessel. The only thing is that T_Mac take alot of time before building
his first turrets and the dark templars are coming fast. Do
you think the turret detection will come in time ? (Put your
mouse over the link to indicate your choice, Do not click
After this first
offensive attempt, we can see some changes on both side. Ko[B]old, with his expansion operational,
add some gateways since he was only macroing from 1 gateway up
to that. We also see what that stargate was for. Three
corsairs and and a fleat beacon are standing there. Do we
really going to see some disrupting web in that battle ?
T_Mac, just don't want some
dark templars drop to harrass is main before his science
vessel comes out, so he place 2 turrets beside his mineral and
start building an academy for the use of comsat later on.
After he built some good defense for his main base, T_Mac make his first try on the offensive
and leave base with 6 tanks, 2 vultures and 8 marines. Pershap
he should have waited for his science vessel ( that got out 1
minute after ) because General Ko[B]old as ordered his troops of
dragoons and Dark Templars, to wait outside the Terran base
and kill every exit attempt.
T_Mac lost about
half his original troops during this exit attempt. Of course
being the great mercenary he is, he didnt stop the production
during this attack and his science vessel finally see the
light. Soon after, T_Mac decide to
take his first expansion on the west side of the south sector
while he setup a siege in the middle sector. Unfortunatly for T_Mac,
Ko[B]old use his 3 dragoons that
was camping in the middle map to scout his expansion. When the
dragoons arrive, they see the command center just start his
construction and kill the scv that was building it. T_Mac auto-destruct the building before
the dragoons can finish it. 4 tanks and a science vessel are
sent to eliminate the dragoons responsable for this assault.
After he kill the dragoons, T_Mac will immediatly send another SCV to
rebuild a command center at that expansion. Ko[B]old is well aware that T_Mac is trying to get an expansion, so
in order to keep the mining advantage, General Ko[B]old order to a probe to warp another
Nexus in the east valley. Remember that T_Mac was leaving to
setup a siege in the middle during this expansion attempt?
Well it is all setup now. Mines, Sieged tanks and turrets are
now sieging the middle map with reinforcement that keep
Seeing the Terran Federation sieging the place
with his 6 corsairs that were park on the middle map, Ko[B]old got no intention to let him
become stronger and he carry about 12 dragoons, 1 dt and 2
templars near the siege. His corsairs are now able to cast
disrupting web, but he will wait a little, probably so all his
corsairs got the required mana to cast it. And here we are,
after a short wait, we can see some D-Web cast on the first
tanks of the siege and the rest of the Protoss rebels are
coming to the offensive!
That sure was a great fight! It turned out a
little to the Terran advantage but not that much. After this
T_Mac dont want to let the rebels
make up another army when he take the remaining sieged tanks
that survived the battle, + some new reninforcements and he go
further in the Protoss territory.
Just before to continue with the action, i just
want to tell you that at this point, T_Mac is producing stuff from 4 factorys,
1 startport and 1 barrack. He also only got one expansion.
Ko[B]old on his side, got 6
operationnal gateways and is starting to warp carriers from
his lonely stargate. He receiving income from 2
Ok let's get back to action because T_Mac is bringing his tanks in the
Protoss territory between the 2 rebels expansions. That'S a
very nice spot to siege tanks because that way, T_Mac is able to defend against any
Protoss units reinforcement and killing Ko[B]old 2nd expansion. Another good
thing with this siege is that he will force Ko[B]old to fight on the ramp while his
tanks are shooting from behind.
Of course, Ko[B]old is not dumb enought to just go
lose his dragoons on that ramp. Deseperate situartion requires
desesparate measures ! Only D-Web can help him to safely
remove the siege without, suffering major loses.
Ko[B]old used D-Web so nicely on that one
that he almost didnt lose troops. Ko[B]old continue to advance with his
dragoons and is able to caught T_Mac in transition. They were moving to
help the attack at the second expansion. This got for effect
to completely remove the terran presence from the middle
sector. The Nexus that was under attack managed to survive to
the tank push. But that is only temporar, T_Mac shortly after send a dropship with
a tank and 2 goliaths to drop on that mini cliff beside the
expansion. Ko[B]old will never be
able to get that expansion back.
Approximatly in the
same time he cliff siege the 2nd rebels expansions, T_Mac start buidling a command center in
the west valley. He also saw the carriers that was preparing
Ko[B]old from is stargate and
manage to get some air defense. Goliaths, wraiths and marines
now forming the major part of the Terran Federation army. I
think T_Mac neglicted to build some
tanks at this points because he might be ok for carriers but
if they come along with a large group of dragoons thats could
hurt him bad.
Soon after General Ko[B]old start thinking to go in offense
again and move his carriers and corsairs to the second
expansion attempt of the Federation. The carriers are able to
destroy the command center before the renforcements makes it
to the expansion. The Protoss Fleet continue to hit the other
T_Mac expansion on the bottom west,
but the terran forces intercept the carriers/corsairs and a
T_Mac's wraiths died
so fast versus the corsairs fleet that i didnt even got time
to take a screen shot! Altought goliaths were about to defeat
the infamous carriers, T_Mac missed
some tanks support to hold the dragoons down the ramp. During
the attack, General Ko[B]old
ordered his troops to start another expansion in the middle
sector and its now fully operation due to a large probes
transfert. With the lost of his last expansion, T_Mac got no ressource income and do not
seem to have enought gas to keep building tanks.
Ko[B]old is now just dragoons containing
him while he takes all the expansion he can. T_Mac is also trying to take that
expansion he cliff sieged earlier, but just cant cover himself
from the large ammount of dragoons that keep coming to the
front door of the Federation Base. It's only a matter of time
before Ko[B]old order his dragoons,
with the help of the disrupting web, to charge the last group
of goliaths that are forming the last line of defense of the
Winner: Ko[B]old, New
leader of the Protoss resistance.
