Before getting into the game, I must repeat how I've been sucking even more than usual due to my need to study hard for an upcoming AP exam. I'm thinking that I'll be able to focus back on what's truly important (starcraft, of course) once I'm over that test. I might even soon have the capabilities to start streaming! Huzzah!

The Early Game
+ Show Spoiler +
Aw yiss, another game! Sad how my laddering these days has just been 1 a day... not nearly enough for my addiction. However, trying to make each game count. The game is a PvZ on Derelict Watchtower, and I Opened with a gateway expand, since that's the beezneez now adays. First scouting probe Johnson also managed to leave a tactical mark on this earth yet again with his favorite proxy pylon.
im levin u pylo cuz u ugly
My expo ended up a bit later than I would have wanted (28), so I decided to go in with a 3gate pressure. At the point of the attack I had 2 zealots and a sentry ready to go, and chronoboost on that warpgate (and usage of that ugly pylon) got me up 5 zealots and a sentry in his face by 7:40.
YAY I made friends! ... Guys? uh, Guys? ... ok that's cool too.
The pressure goes surprisingly well, other than losing the sentry (which could have really helped with closing off the ramp like a douche) but I manage to significantly increase that units lost tab.

The early game closes out with me in a pretty big lead, even getting my 3rd base saturated up almost faster than the zerg.
patch notes; new structure "Hatchus" available to protoss and zerg.
The Mid Game
+ Show Spoiler +
Although at first glance the mid game appeared to me to be a perfectly fine time with me just sitting back and keeping an advantage, but this is definitely where I made this game's fatal mistake. Observe the following.
Nothing look wrong? well, Nothing is exactly what's wrong with this. At any point before I hit 150 supply I could have walked in and won the game with zealots. My zergy enemy decided to get every single damn upgrade he could muster, having barely any money left for defense. And I just sat there politely letting him build back up and tech. I swear, I used to play better than this...
The End Game
+ Show Spoiler +
So in due time after both of us are maxed the zerg rolls in with his 4/2 ultralisks. And of course, being the idiot I am, I have a bunch of zealots to defend. Whee!
The above image may not be suitable for readers who are physically hurt by bad gameplay.
And the ultralisks go a rolling in to the base. I try to stay in and make voidrays, just because I have a huge bank and may possibly have a chance, but I'm quickly crushed by the enemy who isn't nearly as polite when it comes to rebuilding.
I swear people, I'll play better after tomorrow! I'm a better player than this damnit!!!
So for some quick reflection on the game; I'm pretty confident of my screw up, that I didn't attack when I had a huge lead. Even had i not attacked, I should have started to tech up to the voidray/carrier skytoss army that I love but haven't gotten to use as much since I started to gateway expand (I build too many zealots without thinking). Hope someone may have learned or had a laugh at some bad gameplay, hope to do better tomorrow, and I pray to my Satanic overlord that I will get a 5 on my AP test tomorrow. GL HF people!!!
