first help post for me, so please go easy on me
So, I played on Korhal yesterday for the first time and the Terran did the much loved 2rax. Only this time he brought a lot of scvs. And I had no idea how to stop this.
I'm gonna walk you through my thoughts on the game and I hope you guys can tell me where I went the wrong way.
00:00 - yay ZvT. let's go for 15 hatch/16pool, I like macro games where I can throw a lot of shit at the terran (that's why I play zerg after all)
1:24 - I see his scouting scv coming. Looks kinda early to me. I pull a drone cause I wanna try to sneak it out. Got eng bay blocked quite a few times.
1:47 - ok so he stays in my base. Let's use the drone for scouting then.
2:39 - I count his scvs. I see 10 mining, 1 following my drone. 1 is building the rax and I saw a second one going to build a depo. 1 is out scouting. 14 scvs total. He can't have a second rax. In reality he sent the one for the depot out on the map and put down a proxy rax. conclusion My way of counting the drones only works when I see no gas?
2:52 - He starts orbital command. I think that's fine. in reality it's way to late. I should see him start orbital command right when the rax finishes. right?
3:28 - he attacks my gas steal with all those workers? lol? I FAIL to notice that the workers suddenly are gone. duh. In my defense, I was talking to a buddy of mine all the time.
4:00 - bunker incoming. pull workers. kill scv. and the other scv...s? the hell?
4:25 - oh shit marines. 2rax. quick. do something. but what. drones are dead. shit. ling speed? useless. roaches? not enough money. Well I have 2 queens coming. they can buffer damage. let's just build a spine.
4:42 - turns out scvs and marines kinda kill building spines. hmmmm. ok. abandon the natural. He won't have scvs at home anyway, I won't fall behind.
5:00 - frantic micro without clear goal. make stuff. When the queen dies I get the feeling that I'm gonna lose.
5:30 - ok let's cut off reinforcements and build a spine in the main. remake some drones. [i]I guess that was really really wrong here[!/i] also, where the f*** is my spine? It never started? huh?
7:00 - ok this shit is lame. bunker in main is up. I'm dead.apparently I'm only 2 supply behind.
So, my conclusions from this game are: actually think about what you are scouting, when the scvs come don't panic, if you can't hold the natural just make one or two spines in the main and build slow lings. As soon as the spines finish I will have quite a few lings and at least one queen. He won't be able to kill my spines cause I can defend them with lings. From there either go for baneling bust or retake the natural and macro up. His economy will be badly hurt.
I'm looking forward to get some advice from the wonderful TL-community. And please tell me if I made a mistake with the layout of this post. Yes I did read the guidelines ;-)
