3v2 Telos & Ravage Vs. Dnoop, Tagowar, Jello
All of us were online to play some 1v1s against each other, but those were short lived. At first i versed ravage, and in probably my closest game yet with him, it came down to killing each others buildings. it was a long fight and in a final encounter, Ravage used his ghosts to emp my army and then volleyed my weakened army with his massed tanks. My army crumbled, whats even more discerning, is that his buildings became revealed and there was about 3 left that were right behind my army, and i had expos everywhere. but this was not the main attraction.
Jello was growing impatient so me and ravage decided to 2v3 them. we both went rand, i got zerg and he got terran. we knew we had to rush to stand a chance, so he went reapers and i roaches. luckily, for them Dnoop had a void ray out already when we hit. If he didn't have that, my roaches would have dominated them while Ravage harassed their mineral lines and buildings with reapers, and that would of been it. since i always thought zerg was my worst, i panicked, knowing any second Dnoop would be coming with voidrays, along with Jello, cause thats Jellos only strat as toss. i quickly got hydras just in time, later going for mutas, and my final tec was corruptors. Meanwhile tagowar came in strong and nearly leveled Ravage's base. that was probably the death blow for him. For now it was 1v3, and it was bad. just concentrating on making units, Dnoop at one point came in with a sizable army of stalkers, but i had so many speedlings that his stalkers just got obliterated, which made me laugh.
After repelling what felt like 100's of waves of voidrays, sometimes from both Dnoop and Jello and other times from just one of them(Dnoop), i basically ran out of resources. being a 3v2 they basically had 1.5 times the amount of resources me and ravage had, which also meant 1.5 times the amount of units. The death blow to my godly zerg skills that match, was tagowar. coming in with massed thors, with scv's ready to repair them, i could not do much with mutas and speedlings. that was the gg time. 38 minutes, 30 seconds, me and ravage lasted against 3 people. we both agreed, if we had a medium computer on our side, we would have won, cause as the replay shows, there were so many times where we had them on the edge, nearly dead, but we never had the power for the last little push. -which is what the computer could of provided.
yet i am happy with the outcome. this was probably the best i have ever played zerg.
here is my 1v1 vs. ravage
and here is the 2v3 game
