I was playing PvC-TvZ, and I decided to use nothing but infantry units, so I did just that. I destroy one zerg base only to discover they had an expansion. I just destroy the expansion and i didnt win, so I started scanning and found another base. I destroy that, and still didn't win. By now I get frustrated and start scanning again only to find they have yet another base. I destroy that and scan again, but find that they built ANOTHER base where I had already scanned. So it just becomes a big frenzy, and I get frustrated enough to use 'black sheep wall' at the end. It was annoying ^^

Back* from the grave

Why were you playing against the computer?

I just felt like trying something out, that's all.

Alicia Starblue, the replay is corrupted. All i saw was you scouting with 8 rines and Orange zerg assaulted your base with 2 groups of hydras and lurks. Might be the x4 replay corruption, either way, you need to get acadamy faster and more map control.

That's because I played on original StarCraft, you had the Brood War disk in, so it corrupted it. Watch it with the original disk.

I was only using marines (and two firebats) I wasn't even trying really.

Uh huh.

You know, it's actually pretty funny looking at people criticizing me when they haven't even sen the replay :P
So far LoTu)S only saw the replay, and he saw the bugged version from BW, not original.

Watched it on original, either way you would have found the top right base and killed it. Problem is you lack map control. Your rines were just in one cluster moving from A to B.You were also just focusing on the 1 group the entire time. i see no advancement of tech. Ya you weren't trying, but no need for excessive attention toward 1 group.

:facepalm: the reason I didn't advance was because I only wanted to use marines (and 2 firebats), how many times do I have to spell it out for you?! :hurr:

StarBlue, you're basically going "well i used shitty strat but i l00ze!!!!!111111one111shift11! y dis happen???!?! HALP!!! :hurr:".

I'm not sure how I should respond to that; if you are intent on using a bad strategy, expect to lose or take a very long and painful path towards the win. The only problem here is this:

I tried what you did. Only versus 2 zergs. And no I didn't try.

Beating 7 computers as something other than terran in melee is actually hard :3. There are custom AIs out there that are far better than the default (check TL). They can go up to D/D+ levels without resource cheating.

Ultraviolet -- You might even be able to turn another unused unit into a map revealer imitation with a smaller vision range so that you could have both normal map revealers and smaller map revealers. Not sure about this one though.
