It's official. I suck.

For all Starcraft 2 - related banter, and the clan name we might or might not ever have!

It's official. I suck.

Well, that's the tl;dr version.

I thought I was doing ok. I won my first 3 games then lost the next 2 and got put in a Silver division. Since then I've lost 4 more to make it 6 in a row.

I play zerg.

A couple more losses and I'm switching to Terran methinks. It doesn't really seem to matter what I do, or what strategy the opponent pursues, it just always seems enough to beat me. Not being able to wall off is pretty rough on zerg but it's obviously not necessarily terminal as there are a lot of successful zerg players hovering near the top of the rankings.

I have a couple of openings down quite well in terms of my build order and I spent many practice games honing my timing but as the game transitions into the mid-game I just tend to get steamrollered. Whether they go bioball, tech hard to air, go with cloaked units or turtle up and wait till tier 3 to come and get me, when it eventually comes I just don't seem to be able to withstand an assault.

I've got into their base a few times with some troops but haven't been able to deal a fatal blow before being driven out then, eventually, crushed.

Yeah, i guess I just suck with zerg.

Don't you worry about it. I suck even more as zerg.

During beta I did fairly well as Terran but whatever build orders I had I've all but forgotten them.

I play zerg too, and if I don't win in the first 8 minutes, I simply won't win ^_^
I think the zerg are meant to be played by women. Too much multitasking going on there for my feeble masculin mind.

Even so, I play zerg because:

- I played them in SC1
- I don't like the terran playing style
- I don't like the style of protoss playing players.

and I will keep on doing so.
huzzah!

So I switched to Terran after repeatedly getting pwned. My hotkeying/macroing just isn't good enough yet for the Swarm. Much more favourable ratio now. I almost never lose as Terran (although admittedly my performances with Zerg saw me relegated to Bronze so I'm not saying I'm any good, it's just my opponents are just as bad or worse than me).

Plus Terran is ezmode :wink:

So I'm in Silver again (but still pretty much suck). Anyone still playing this much? Would be fun getting together for some multiplayer fun games or even team ladder matches.

Just add meh.

Still playing and recently promoted to Gold. :o_y: I have to say after all this time I am still loving it and really getting into the multiplayer in a big way.

Dont worry, the next installment is released this year - Im sure it will normalise the Zerg units/strategy to give them a fairer chance :)
