Crazy Match that got 3v3 team into Platinum
Ravage, VeRiTaS, and I were playing some 3v3 matches on SC2 last night, and we were going random, just for the hell of it. Me and Ravage got zerg this game, while VeRiTaS got Protoss. At VeRiTaS's urging, me and Ravage, 10 pooled, got speedlings, and rushed, nearly killing the other teams zerg player. Now, i used to think i sucked at playing zerg, but i don't know anymore. Even with our enemies economic (and tec) advantage, me and Ravage survived for a while. I became fed up with suiciding speedlings at our enemies enormous army, so i decided to go banes. Getting them just in time, the enemies did a full out triple attack aganist me...figures -.- my banes slammed into their army as it ran up the ramp to my base, and i did a lot of damage, but not enough. One of our opponents even decided to say "GG" to us. i though i was done. Ravage had thrown his lings at the army along with mine, and now we both had nothing. But, *GASP* VeRiTaS came to the rescue. He had a full army of zels, stalkers, and sentries. he wiped up the remains of the triple attack, me and ravage pumped out batches of speedlings, and we countered. there was one of each on the other team, a terran, a protoss, and a zerg. the zerg was basically dead already from me and Ravage's zerg rush, so we attacked the protoss guy (the one who said GG to us like we should have surrendered.) we killed him. thus, both him and the zerg guy left the game. perhaps the Terran guy thought he could take us, for he hesitated. But, perhaps upon remembering that i had bane(ling) tec, which incinerates marines, he turned and fled, leaving the game...we got pushed up into platinum because of this, and me and Ravage were arguably playing our worst faction-zerg...
take a look at the zerg prowess
