Archons - Merge Two High Templar when low on Energy to get an amazing Protoss Archon. Warning, EMPs are scary.

You're just incredibly easy and fun to pester and annoy. If you were a brick, it would be much more boring to bother you.

Thank the burning steppes of Hell you aren't a brick though.

Using Zerg, use Zerglings with burrow as physical hold-traps to allow Hydralisks to attack with impunity for several sconds by placing them in a narrow chokepoint in such a way that the chokepoint looks like a black caterpillar or dense grid or similar. When enemies approach, unburrow your Zerglings to screw up everything's pathing and unleash Hell with your Hydralisks.

Here is an example in which the player appears to have actually set the trap in the open. Appears to be super effective.

finally, a sensable sttrategy

Alright, this is a strategy that I developed by myself, it is completely unique and has been heard of by little.

Introducing a never seen strategy, named "FATE."

Pro Strat


Hopefully this helps alot in your matchups, it works for Terran and Zerg too.

You used UMS for that, AND you stacked, proving it doesn't work...
EDIT:
Still, I must say you put more effort into your troll than the others... ^^ beside Lanthanide.

Lan's was different because there was a possibility that it COULD work, which made it more successful

Psh, my infested duran troll was better.

My burrow-troll was better too, but in a different way.

Actually, Sand Wraith, your burrow troll actually worked pretty well. I tried it and it was a big success.



None.

Honestly, it only really works against the AIs and on Fastest. -_-

In no real game would it ever do you any good. Your units will just end up eating hits before they can unburrow completely and start attacking. Especially Hydralisks, who actually have a waitrand opcode in their iscript that can go past 1 second, IIRC.
Its failure is derived from build timings and good players.

Just a matter of balancing.

NaDa's vult harass
Another strat:Build into a 2 vult build and micro against Zerg. only works for TvZ.

Actual Strategy:
Proxy Hatchery (numbers are supply counts to build buildings)
12pool
11gas
10hatch(in opponent's main/ anywhere else that is close to the enemy base but can not be seen by enemy buildings and passing units)
After this is accomplished spam lings while putting 2 drones to mine gas and upgrading zergling speed. Then use the hatchery to summon lings and drones to make sunkens in the enemy base. Highly effective(OP vs 1 base toss) versus protoss and mediocre against zerg. Requires high skill level against terran.
Replays attached. Encipher game won by myself other games by Kau@Teamliquid.net

edit: @Lanthanide. Hey, at least I gave a cheese strategy.
edit2: @ HeWhoShallNotBeNamed. I completely disagree with your name so no.

TERRAN Battlecruiser Spam
As Terran, build two StarPorts and create 12 BCs. Research all BC upgrades.
Continue repeatedly making BCs but only group 12.
When attacking a base Yamato all the anti-air and high Templars and ATTACK!
Use the remaining Battlecruisers to replace the dead ones.

Was this serious?

If so, it's...flawed :P I can point out why if you so desire.

OVERWATCH STATUS GO

You should never rely on comp stomp "strategies" (assuming that concept actually exists) for actual melee games against people. If you tried to do that against a person, you'd be screwed.

well I might have found 1 bug for them to fix - some maps load on 32 bit, but not on 64 bit game version

you can’t move buildings afaik

Moose -- martosss
martosss shouted: jjf28 OK, I have 1 more question - are you using 32 bit SC:R or 64 bit ? In game settings there's an option to switch to 32, is it checked? I just tried hosting the map with 64-bit SC:R and it failed... I ticked the option to use 32 bit SC:R => it worked and map was hosted. So I guess the issue still exists for 64 bit SC:R ? I also tried calling a friend and he couldn't see the map when he entered the lobby. Weird, I might have to report this to Blizzard?
