My Aspition account is 18-3 C-, my best C- win ratio to date. Clicky. This was after a reset, where i went on a great tear (winning alot of pvt's) and hit C- surprisingly efficiently.
My Kiante account is C- over 130 games with ~50% win rate. Clicky. This account has had a fair few big losing streaks hence the bad score over so many games.
My HerpDerp-_- account is now C over 80 games with a 57% win ratio. Clicky. I had some bad losing streaks on this account but this morning i had a good string of pvp's and finally hit my C rank for this season, meaning i've now got 2 consecutive seasons with C rank.
What is interesting to note about these accounts is the different % win rates vs the different races. On aspition i am 73.5% vs terran, meanwhile on kiante i'm 35% vs terran and i'm ~55% vs all races on herpderp-_-. I cant really explain these, because they're all sampled over a fair few games, but i guess it really comes down to my focus on the day and the map/matchups i was playing. When map the week is a P favoured map i'd hit alot more protoss than usual, while when something like FS or python was in the rotation i'd hit a fair few more terrans, and it would come down to my own focus on the day.
When i lack focus i tend to 12 nex in pvt alot more, and i struggle alot holding off bunker rushes. I never really seem to profit from a 12 nex but i end up doing it alot anyway. Funny how the mind plays with you sometimes
Anyways, as is customary, and promised in the title, its time to do a battle report. I picked a PVP played on longinus, one of the games i played today while hitting C rank. I've put it in a spoiler because it has a fair few images. Enjoy!!
Battle report inside
+ Show Spoiler [Battle Report!] +
The game opens up on the map Longinus. A great 3 player map from the age of the dragons.
The game opens up with my opponent spawning in the 11 position and Me spawning at 7. He opens with a 9 scout and a 1 gate no gas opening
Meanwhile, i 12 nex, because 12 nex pvp is pretty cool.
He expands after 1 zealot, minimising my economic advantage from the 12 nex and manages to get 2 probe kills with his first zealot due to my fail probe micro.
I do the standard 5 zealot push from a 12 nex and get in a really great position, then decide to pull back. My zealots were damaged, but his were almost dead, if i'd pressed with the attack i could've done alot more damage, but i killed a couple of probes, so i'm left with a slight economic advantage after the openings.
We both go for DT followups, but i have my army out of position and he sneaks a DT into my main, which kills my nexus before i can get some detection in range
The he storm drops my nat with all my probes at it, dropping me down to about 15 or so probes and 1 nexus
I'm forced into a counter attack, where i level his army and do some significant eco damage, but not really enough to level the game, and i'm dropped to 35 supply
He storm drops again even after i have cannons in position, and i'm really low on probes at this point. meanwhile we've both taken a double gas expansion
And more storm drops are causing my probe count to dwindle. Luckily my macro is slightly better than his meaning i'm not irrevocably behind yet.
He then uses 3 shuttles to ferry units into my double gas and takes out the nexus but i was just taking another two nexus's and claiming the important double gas expansion between our mains.
I did some storm drops of my own and clear his double gas of probes as well!
And more storm drops hit my second double gas, and almost 20 minutes into the game i'm still frantically producing probes out of 4 nexii ><
I finally go in for a battle, and we trade armies off, but i'm still about 10 supply behind.
He comes in for even MORE storm drops (i was stressing pretty hard at this point) but i managed to juke his storms and take out his templars with my probes ^_^ I'm sure those little guys felt good getting a bit of revenge.
So he decides to take the natural of the unclaimed main, while i take the main, both unknown to each other
Another huge battle in the middle, and i manage to come out a bit ahead this time, and i've almost equalised the supplies!
Transferring probes: a valid method of expansion scouting. (Hillariously 3 of the probes made it through).
I throw my army into the cannons, refusing to let him take another gas
He takes out my mineral only and i give chase!
I catch up to his forces fleeing from my mineral only and many storms ensue
But my forces get taken out
He then moves and takes out the contentious double gas expansion
And still continues to storm drop my expansions, much to the dismay of my probes
However, i finally managed to spend my gas excess....on ARCHONS! Balls of death going everywhere! rawr!!
And GG, I come from behind and am victorious!!
Here is a link to the replay
And i cut the vod from my stream recordings, unfortunately its in 2 parts, however you get to hear me lamenting over my horrible position in real time ^_^
