Great Team Liquid Thread:

It talks about the Protoss Warp in Mechanic and things you may not have thought about concerning it. He claims it broke Protoss, I don't agree with that opinion, but the content does make think about certain aspects of the game and how Protoss differs from the other 2 races because of this mechanic.

Head on over and like it! Only those with a Facebook will do!

Starcraft 2 PTR Patch 1.4

The most notable and worthwhile change in my opinion is probably the Immortal Buff. That needed to happen a year ago.

Unit vision up ramps has been reduced by 1.

Attack range increased from 5 to 6.

Acceleration increased from 0.3 to 1.375.
The Mothership’s Cloaking Field no longer cloaks all units instantaneously, but rather adds units to the cloak field over time (maximum of 25 per second). This should alleviate “Mothership Lag” issue when a Mothership comes online.

Blink research time increased from 110 to 140.

Warp Prism
Shields increased from 40 to 100.

Build time increased from 60 to 65.

Infernal Pre-Igniter damage upgrade decreased from 10 to 5.

Seeker missile movement speed increased from 2.5 to 2.953.

Fungal Growth damage changed from 36 (+30% armored) to 30 (40 vs Armored).

Morph cost decreased from 50/100 to 50/50.
Contaminate energy cost increased from 75 to 125.

Build time decreased from 70 to 55.

Still Platinum!

So after a long 70 hour work week, I head over to a clients house to clean her floors. Shes a nice older lady who I frequently talk to about other business ventures and stuff in general. She told me to head home early and enjoy some time to myself, after I told her how long of a week I had. Now, to set things straight, Work is the reason I have not been able to devote any time to the blog, or Starcraft in general. a 60-70 Hour work week is now normal for me. Any Semblance of a Social Life or free time went out the door in favor or paying the bills.

Anyway, I took her up on her offer, headed home and spent an hour playing Starcraft, which involved 1 Ladder game. I lost to a Diamond Player going Roach + Infestor probably because, even though I knew he was going Roaches, I still built a Colossus. I had been producing a few Immortals, but did not keep up with it, so eventually he won out by having more units. It wasn't until after my third base went down that I realized I was not spending all of my resources, or did I have enough unit producing Structures. I still had 3 Gateways after my 2nd base went up. I still have trouble knowing when to build more unit producing structures after an expansion goes down. I am finding I need to find the right time to push, or just push out then to see what he is doing and how much he has to know whether to continue building units and wait till I have enough money too add more buildings on. I am liking this 3 gate Council build though....

But I was placed in Platinum after that match still! Hooray!!!!!

State of the Blog

Well its been a year since my first post! I have really enjoyed writing this blog and even more reading other blogs and your comments!. I know recently there has not been a lot of posts about whats going on and that's largely due to life and my career taking a higher priority right now, and there are no signs of this easing up in the near future. I keep checking the blog though, but the content will mainly be various media that surface or tournament results instead of tactics or strategies in game. I am still a big fan of the NASL so you can keep checking back here for info on season 2!
