I have played SC1 in the past as well as other Blizzard games but never really got around to taking Starcraft seriously until now.

Nice channel, videos are enjoyable to watch. I shall subscribe and reccomend others to do the same for some extra replays ontop of the usual huskey ones etc.

Well, lessee, I'm making notes here while watching the game against SibsNnibs

- Having idle probes (e.g. while building the pylon/GW at the start)
- Using CB on a nexus while it isn't producing probes
- Early forge (walling in is generally a bad idea, especially in the long run)
- You didn't scout him at all after your first probe, a single banshee could've easily ended the game
- Terrible, terrible amounts of stockpiled resources
- You basically handed him map control, it's hard to keep it against a MMM ball, but you didn't even try. You did a sentry, a couple of stalkers and that's pretty much it. He could've easily just expanded and taken the whole map
- Quickly teching for... mothership? What kind of build IS that?

I have no Idea how the hell the T managed to lose, but meh...

It's no wonder you're low diamond. No offense :p

I liked your voice though.

E: Addendum:
- It's hard to tell, but it looks like you have an excess of probes
- You should've positioned the sentry further back so it could have FF'd the ramp.

xD I do mention that I am still a learning player Lehmä, however let me address some of your concerns a little.

- Mothership rush was for a bit of a laugh, but managed to win anyway, so wasn't trying for any map control or legitimate strategy. Again, just a bit of fun.
- stockpiled resources during the mothership game was again, because I was focussing more on the mothership getting out asap. Granted I could have made more zealots etc with that or whatever.
- I did know he was going mass infantry during the match after sending a second probe scouting his barracks etc. nevertheless, the lack of scouting can be accounted for since, it was just a bit of fun.
- I'm low diamond because, I don't get much time to play due to real life obligations. I imagine I can go higher but to be honest, i've played around 5 games in diamond. I'll play more though since you asked so nicely :D

Nevertheless I do appreciate your in-put mate :D

Oh and thank you Yazuac! very much appreciated!

Well, I do hope it was for a bit of a laugh, since at this level ALL terrans will just steamroll you with a MMM ball while singing trololololololololololo at you (google for it) :D

I did learn something though, I've never gone for a fleet beacon in PvT and now that I think about it, a well placed vortex might just instawin the game for me.

Yeah, was hoping to get some use out of Vortex but my opponent didn't stick around for long enough.

P.S. I love Trololo <3

EDIT: As soon as I get a PvT and the Terran is going for MMM, I'll upload it :D just to show i'm not a complete scrub.

Hi Kael,

Yay, another Englishman for a change!

Two things you need to watch out for IMO:

"I'd Imagine" and "as you can see" - both were peppered liberally throughout their respective videos. Once you'd cast them, did you watch them yourself, I wonder? That'll improve with practice though, I'm sure.

If you've the free time it might be worth grabbing a load of games off sc2replayed.com to cast, just to get the practice in. Plus with not knowing what's coming, you might get into the games a bit more.

I'll be watching with interest, anyway - hope it goes well for you!

Alie

Haha, I did indeed watch the replays back however, being myself, I imagine (lol) I was unable to notice myself repeating these phrases. I have had a few friends point this out to me also so I apologise for being a parrot :D

Also I think it would be a great idea for me to cast some games from sc2replayed.com in order to get some practice and experience in. However I'm hoping to keep my channel specific to the games I play, much like PsYStarcraft does.

Thanks very much for taking an interest though mate.

P.S. Englishmen ftw! although I live in Finland currently so i'm a bit of a traitor :x

Sorry to say this, but if you consider that those games are of real Diamond league level, then that's unfortunate. Not saying that the games are terrible, but they are really weak.

I say this is entertaining. Not fun watching the pros all the time, since they play so perfectly. I like seeing some screwups and weird tactics such as the AHH MOTHERLAND- er... ship... rush.

I'll be watching for more clips. ^^

Needless to say if you'd either read the comments above, or any of the descriptions in the videos - Not only did I say I was a learning player, but I also admitted several times that my play, or perhaps my opponents is not fantastically-amazingly-godlike.

Considering i'm in Diamond, and worked my way up to Diamond, and am playing in a Diamond league, against other Diamond players, common sense deduces that those are Diamond level games. Unless of course you're debating that snippet of reversed general ignorance. Maybe lower level Diamond, but Diamond nontheless.

EDIT - Man this is like IdrA rage, ashamed yo xD

Great videos, I really enjoyed them. Its good that you pointed out your mistakes as it helps a lot with learning players. Maybe one thing to do though it give the details of the initial start instead of saying "the standard start" we still have a lot of players just joining the game and what is standard too you may not be obvious too them.

I dont know whats with the Nay sayers though its obviously a Diamond league game the guys playing Diamond league against another Diamond league players, I dont recall him claiming that he was playing against the top rated players in the league but it does go to show that mistakes can still happen in the top league and they are still human after all.

You are really right there about me saying "the standard start", instead I should be saying things like "getting my gate at 11".. etc etc.. I will certainly try to incorporate that into my next video. Thanks for the feedback mate :D

Oh also, I've just uploaded a new game, and will be uploading another one very shortly (2 parter). The next video will a follow on from the most recent one, against terran and a useful way to counter siege tanks.
