Yeah I forgot to mention it can be a bitch to get the live stream working. You need to download and install the GOMTV player before Chrome even realises it needs an app to open the stream. The player also likes to try and over take all your media file associations and install various bloatwares so full custom install with bare minimum is the only way to go.

Once that is done you should be able to open the free stream.

I ended up just buying a season pass so i can watch the VODs when I want without a stupid player app so I guess this method of pay walling works when the free alternatives are so shit.

tl;dr You can get the stream working with VLC though using this nifty script: http://mystarcraft2clan.com/blog/per...-live-vlc-link

Terran is the beginner race by default as it has pretty standard RTS macro mechanics. Do what others have said and try every race and pick your favourite one (i.e. the one you enjoy playing the most)

Despite what a lot of people say every race is pretty well balanced. And even if you pick a race which is a bit more powerful at the lower levels you'll find it's either less strong as you get better and play players with more skill. And if it is actually OP it will eventually get nerfed to bring it in line with the other 2.

Got back into it on the weekend, thought I'd try Terran for the first time ever... Qualified gold after not playing for over 6 months, was disappointed I wasn't in the easy bronze ladder

After a few games with T, I reckon I'll fall back onto my default race: Protoss. I just love warp gates so much.

Oh man I'm so bad. Get about 5 minutes in... forgot gas or cy-core.... or both. Terrible at map control and/or pressure/poking, finding that I'm scouting well but by the time I'm like 'ahh roaches, more imor...FUCK THERE'S 100 ROACHES AT MY DOOR'

Top 10 gold and somehow climbing.

Loving team games right now, just beat some diamonds in 2v2. Double terran they did some anti-terrn mech heavy build. Immortal/Archon/Zealot turned it to butter. Probably the isngle most satisfying game I've played in a long time

Got to level two last night, didn't get SQ of 100, but 4 games in a row of an SQ of 96. At level two I dropped to SQ 65

I noticed a huge improvement though, APM went through the roof too.

I'm actually really enjoying learning this method, it's taken all the panic out of my play style, everything is becoming much more deliberate. Plus at level 1 without any gas, it's hilarious when I get scouted, have 4 expo's, 20 gateways and no warpgate/gas. Opponent is all like 'da fuq??' before 100's of zealots over run him.

Top of gold

Only one or two losses to zergs who were like 'seriously?' then followed by Roach max steam rolling me. But most people just have 'expand! greedy!' in their minds and don't react to what they've scouted properly. But without gas or anything but gateways, your economy is through the roof, was constantly building gateways and pylons non-stop to keep my SQ up.

Seriously give it a go, I've never seen my unspent resources so low or my APM so high....

Went from:



To:



Also, this is a stupid question... But what the fuck do people do in 'practice games'? Do they just say '4 gate me, I wanna practice holding it off'? Or is there more to it?

Yeah if you're having trouble with sometihng you ask someone to do one build over and over or alternatively you do one build over and over and tell the other person to try and beat it. Only really good when you are both at equalish skill levels in my shitty Gold level experience

Or you can play someone better then you and just practise fundamentals

OR play against a V Easy computer and practice individual things, like keep doing 10 minute games over and over without missing a probe. Or practise getting to 200/200 as fast as possible etc etc. There are heaps of ways to practise

Yeah it's good actually trying to get better just remember if you stop for playing properly for week or two (like me) you're skill level goes to shit!

I also forgot to mention whenever you practice the biggest thing is not getting dat supply block, my god i get supply blocked so much its terrible

Yeah that's something that I'm getting much better at, especially during pushes. Shit at chrono during mid/late game though.

Watch those games that I posted, so epic. MC really is the boss toss.

Can't break 70 on level 2

EDIT - Finally 71. I think gas management and supply blocks are my main problems.
EDIT2 - 80!! Love this method, so much fun to improve and shit.

So how does it work exactly? Do you watch your replays and dial the numbers in at various times or something?
