You go ahead and fail. My reign as Terran is just about to begin!
Also I need to watch the Life vs Flash vods.
Some of the Zerg players that were there need to sit down and look at all of Life's play. It was so simple, but effective and ended up giving him an edge against everyone he came up against, not to mention his usual, ridiculously good Zergling control.
He managed to win with the race LEAST in favor in HoTS for the time being. AND he played the most amazing games in his life on MLG before this one ( WoL not HoTS ) where he ABSOLUTELY destroyed with his micro ( He boosts his macro [ building hatcheries, drones, queens, gas, etc. ] by outmicroing his opponent with his army positions and scouting power )
I just want to say that, what he is doing is NOT easy, not even the slightest, he's just good at it that it looks so simple.
Time for terrans to learn to deal with lingblingmuta again.
It's kind of a shame how the new zerg units got barely used during the MLG. Terrans seem to love their mines
and protoss their oracles. Swarm hosts just looked silly against mech :P
How long does it go before the replays for the tournament are released? Really want to get into the game and look at some of them
Most of the other Zerg players fell down because of a lack of static defences and a confused mid field play, which was more about stalling the Terran than trying to pressure him.
The answers to MutaLingBling are already there. Now terrans will go back to 2011 and MutaLingBling will fade away once
And considering how ling heavy Life was, I don't understand why no one bothered to mix like 6 Hellbats to their army.
You may remember me from such threads as!
Because builds are still being tested and improved upon, remember early WoL when armies consisted just of few types of units. Also, overlord spread of most zerg players was really bad, terrans used heavy drop play at this tournament, and no one bothered to spot and intercept them before they dropped. Zerg can't just turtle in the mid anymore and wait for infestor/broodlord, you need static defenses (which aren't so static in the case of Zerg^^).And considering how ling heavy Life was, I don't understand why no one bothered to mix like 6 Hellbats to their army.
I liked the game overall, but it had it's issues.
I felt underwhelmed somehow while playing HotS. The campaign missions were so streamlined this time around, that you practically bursted through most of them in less than 30mins, making it feel much, much shorter than WoL. I also missed that "big surprise", the story was a bit too predictable for my taste.
Otherwise great campaign, but same feeling as I had with D3, too short.

The campaign was made shorter due to some people whining WOL was too long. I would have easily enjoyed another 10missions added onto that.
I liked the campaign I finished it on brutal in 10ish hours with no major problems had to load check point once or twice max on the hardest levels but I found the mastery achievements today and daamm some of those achievements are really fun and force you to rush and think different to complete them. even if most of them are just Do X before Y time its still a ton of fun
Kerrigan is also a huge part of why it felt easy, she is so ridiculously overpowered both alone and when with an army. That enrage that increases health and attack speed is the stupidest spell they have implemented. Zerglings with 235 hp instead of 35, and 100% increased attack speed, or Ultralisks with lifesteal and the same buff; it's so imbalanced. I guess you could play without those abilities, but Kerrigan overall is a far too overpowered hero unit
Have not had a chance to play it myself but I watched Jesse Cox's play through it looks like a lot of the missions are just the old WoL Missions done in a different way. For example that one with the terrazine where you had to get seven and stop the Tal'darim from closing seven looks like the one where you need to get food for Zurvan and stop the Primal Zerg from killing the animals
Finished the camp last night. Rly liked it. Did feel about 5 hours shorter than WoL, but thats ok.
Yes, Kerrigan is too damn strong. Some missions, I screwed up royally, but was able to finish on top ~ simply because she has that AoE Heal.
