i am full zerg mate, since i played UD in w3, it was easier for me to get the idea how the tech tree works/etc. the way the tech tree works is soooo much more different on the other races...

protoss seems to be the only race that is polished in the game, terrain is next, and zerg is the worst out of the entire bunch.

most terrains wall up the choke point, and then u got a few strats, but the most effective and strongest is the MMM ball.

Marine/Marauder/Medavac, with a time push, does insane dmg, stim up and watch bases fall down instantly in a blink of an eye....very annoying so hard to beat..which is why as zerg i just use zerglings/bane to bust open since the mmm build has a weak infantry count at the start, its just the gay walls are impossible to break down without banelings.

I play protoss so perhaps I can give you a bit of advice. Problem with Zerg vs Protoss is that unless the Protoss player is an idiot Protoss will always pwn Zerg if the battles happen at the chokepoints. Completely takes away the Zerg number advantage. So what you gotta do is sneak an overlord to spawn creep at the protoss base. Put in a Nydus Network (preferably two) and proceed to rape his base.

this used to work, but once u play better people u will see pylons around the base of the person.

right now protoss strength is wall up / forge/cannon. then build up immortal/stalker/sentries and a colossus, when they have there first one out they push out and its very hard to beat because this beats everything a zerg has, but i ve been going corruptors (take down colossus) hydra/muta....

colossus is getting a nerf anyway, the range/spread dmg it does is lethal to zerg and the force fields block out the zerg which leaves it very hard to push...

prot can usually get this around the 8 min mark~, the baneline/zerg push works pretty well too, i ve also done the cheese hatchery proxy/crawler push as well on them in 1v1

patch 9 just came out and no nerf to the colossus. Only protoss nerf is the immortal build time which is pretty fair imho. If I can pump immortals out, Zerg don't stand a chance. For what it's worth it takes a while before you get a robotics facility up. And it takes even longer to get the beam range upgrade. Until then the Colossi are worthless.

And even if they build plyons around the base, if you harass them at an expansion it'll draw their focus away from the Nydus Network, and if you build 2x Nydus it'll be really hard to take both down.

If that comment was directed at my post to his comment, I'll explain why it'd conflict. If not then maybe someone will understand why it probably won't happen. I say that they have their own content system in b.net and by that I mean it's nearly identical and growing in similarity to Steam. With b.net comes a full social network for their games, a log in server for their games, an online store for their games and an account to manage and download your games on-line. While not implemented in the same way b.net has become very similar to Steam and I just don't see Blizzard having a reason or need for it.

I of course could be completely wrong it's just my guess. Why would you put your digital content on Steam when you could just sell it on your own site? I would think they'd have to pay some money to sell it on Steam and it's probably not worth it to them. That's my only logic in this, Blizzard has put a lot of effort into b.net to not continue to take it further. They probably don't want people going to something that in the future could be seen as competition to their service. But again just thoughts and opinions.

Martris.des is my name if anyone wants to add me. I'm an easy kill right now, been so long I suck really bad at the moment.
