Long time no post, VIEW ME!! >:]

Hey guys,

replay of me playing a 4v4, getting nubrushed and coming back strong taking 2nd place in ranking.

Sorry quality is shit i'm playing on a 6600GT piece of crap video card!

Tip: ALWAYS saturate your drone line, don't build millions of lings to anticipate an attack, scout to find out when your opponent is going to attack, then build accordingly. spines are always nice to help defend!

Paranormal Activity 2

|Fuckin creepy| I'll have to admit, i haven't watched the first one. This one made me nearly shit bricks
Leave input in the comments. Was the 1st one better? 2nd? Should i watch the first one xD

anyway, lots of noises in that movie made me think of zerglings.. lke the GRIDLRLRLLRLRLLR noises lmao

Tip time:
When playing as zerg, you always want to keep your macro up, i know how hard it can be but it is well worth it. If you're expanding make sure that atleast one hatchery is making drones, while the other can be pumping units.

1v1 Practice!

Hey guys

Was playing 1v1 last night for practice, am getting better!

Theres a new replay for you guys.

TIP: Roaches after the new range buff freaking kick ass. Roaches do nearly as much DPS as a hydralisk, yet have more life. Though the downside is they are armored so tanks still rip them new ones, but that's aside the point. zvz Roaches are always a good way to go

after midterms, i plug it in.. still broken, but i wiggle around with it plug it in awkward angles and stuff. don't screw it all the way in, and it actually works!

I've been playing all of tonight, won 6 games in a row

This is a replay of me playing wiht my cousin. Halfway through he disconnects =/

Sorry i'm not pro enough to have the Fraps playing and uploading to youtube YET i'll try working on it

Zerg Tips!

Helpful tips for you Zerg players, or useful hints against zerg!

Today i will be featuring the Overlord. It is a vital unit as a zerg, as not only does it produce population but it can boost your forces' speed, transport units, scout, protect your units, and even be a major annoyance to your opponent/s.

1: Using drop creep ability on an overlord can help cockblock your opponent's expansion. If they start firing at it, run it away (assuming you have speed) and when they're not looking, move it back, drop a slime of creep and run. repeat until your opponent rages.

2: Using Overlords: Overlords are useful in battle and not. They have many purposes... with their speed ability, they could essentially protect your army from "microing," runthroughs in their base to scout, and can provide creep highways for your units.

(( my favorite use for them: When you're facing a terran, they usually scan you throughout the match. Use your creep poop on the side of your base to build a "hidden" spire, infestor pit, ultralisk cavern, etc! ;] ))

Need video card!!!

Blah i've been so sick of this whole playing on a laptop thing..
1, it's so shitty
2, freaking slow as hell
3, stupid mouselag.

i'm about ready to toss it out of the window

Anyway i'm anticipating the day that i get a video card again, as of right now i'm running linux as my primary OS since windows 7 w/ an onboard is probably the ugliest shit ever.

Anyway. i'm too tired to post any guides right now so i'll postpone. thanks for reading!
remember to comment below and i'll pageview and comment you back!

Your thoughts on Pokemon TCG

Hey guys, I'm thinking about starting up Pokemon TCG. I got my first starter set the Soul Silver one with Feraligatr today, idk if it's any good but please comment below and tell me your tips.

(Because i can't afford a new 200 dollar video card)

Stay tuned for more Starcraft 2 Tips once i get back into the groove.


Midterms Midterms Midterms.
So many midterms after this week.

If this was my class then hell, i'd ace it!
UC Berkeley gets a SC2 Competitive Starcraft class.

Also if you guys would like, check my out my friend's blog at

TIP: When using Void Rays, be careful about how you go about microing them. There is a certain way to continue their chargeup during micro, attack/moveback strategy below is a video on how to charge it and move correctly. ( Really sad about the whole Fazing thing being taken out, but it was only fair D= )

Here is a video for you guys disregard the last part, but still i'd suggest watching it for the kicks and to see how OP VR were back in the early stages of the game

Zerg vs Zerg tips

Hey guys. Some quick tips for you zerg players

Say you're starting off a game Zerg vs Zerg. Unsure if what build to go, you decide to quick expand.

You soon realize a squad of zerglings rush your expansion like no other

Your first mistake was that you actually quick expanded vs a zerg with no defense

Today, i taught some guy this. It was an important lesson for him. I out of everybody i know am the best SC2 player so i always get comments for help and such. Annoying, a little, but learning that i taught someone something that would impact their future games and make them better makes up for it completely
Anyway if you're lookng for me in game my name is Getevlcted #562!

Horrible Horrible week

Some ranting for you guys.. So this week so far i've
  1. Dislocated my left shoulder and almost drowned.. surfing
  2. Had my 220 dollar school parking permit stolen at costco (tire center)
  3. Had my 8800GT video card fry
  4. Have 4 mid terms for 4 of my classes next monday/tuesday (two history, calc, and computer science)
  5. and worst of all, i can't play starcraft 2 for awhile, until i can afford a new video card. BUMMER
All of that, within the course of 4 days. (with the exception of the midterms)
Oh well, life.. it happens
So anyway, more about starcraft 2. Heres a build for my fellow bloggers
It's a build that i used to use a LOT in 1v1 games before i made champion high diamond
i DO still turn to it sometimes, but that's when my usual build can't be used or is being countered.

PS. If you guys are feeling generous, you can always pitch me a couple bucks toward my new video card to the left, at the donate button.. Until i have it, i will sulk in sadness whilest i attempt to play on my old DELL... inspiron 700m. chance of success.. 0-5%

Hey guys, just on a side note i have noticed that there have been lots of talk about the new "paypal" called Paybox. It's scheduled for launch in the summer of 2011, so they're still in mad development. They're offering $50 dollars paybox currency as an incentive, plus up to 20 dollars every day for giving them feedback and answering questions that would help then develop their system. It seems interesting to me, so i took advantage of their early bird special ($50) and will provide them with some help and feedback. I hope that this system grows big against all competitors! If you would like to try it out, here is the link So the sooner you sign up, the quicker your paybox currencies will accrue. And if you like it alot and take advantage of their offers, you could probably  make a fortune once the website actually launches.

But until then, we'll just have to wait and see, so why not just get the earlybird special =]


So much Calculus

Hey guys, i'm taking a break from my calc homework, which blows ass. I haven't played Starcraft in days =[ I definitely feel the need to play, but.... must.. finish.. hw!
I'm here to leave a tip of the day :D

Scouting. Scouting is VERY important. It can change your game drastically.

Example: Say you plan in going mass marines, but you notice your opponent has infestors and banelings, it would be the best idea to switch over to marauders or mech. They don't get blown up as hard when the banelings hit heavy armored units.

Always scout =]

To you terran players out there

Great strategy to do in 2v2 with a zerg is to go Reaper and Zergling ( with metabolic boost )
You can easily outmass your opponents first teir units, and it's a great over all strategy. If you keep pushing it though, remember to tech out incase it fails.

TIP: Whether you decide to proxy or not, you must always get nitro boost. Don't save that extra 50 mins / 50 gas for 2nd reaper, Nitro Boost will help you out 100x more in the end.

Blizzard is shitting on the servers. What's new right?
Remember back in the WoW days where server matainence would extend all day, servers would lag like hell, and there was no reason to be playing, but we all played anyway?

That's how i feel right now with SC2.

/end rant

Anyway: TIP
Make sure you are always pumping your mineral line. Your max amount of probes that can harvest is 24, so 3 lines of SCV/DRONES/PROBES
Even if you have enough, if you have the extra money, why not build more. It makes it easier when it's time to expand, just grab a chunk of them and go!

At school

Sup guys, i'm at school right now! I thought i'd update you guys with the tip of the day or something.

When you're playing a game, always be building units. Don't forget. I had a couple of friends today play with me and they seriously didn't build anything, when the opponents came and attacked us they had like a few cannons so they hit me and we lost. Cool huh! Don't turtle up unless you're going to pool a zerg for mutalisk!

Anyway, TL;DR Keep a nice army up whether it's to attack, or to defend. Especially in team matches!

Good Night

Letting you guys know that Night classes at university SUCK. Just got out from a 4-10 (two 3 hour classes) day and i am absolutely exhausted. But i will leave yo guys wiht a tip of the day!
Tip of the day:

Proxy hatchery is always a fun and creative thing to try. It works especially well against protoss going zealot, just toss up a spines, make roaches and win!

What's with this weather

I don't know if you guys have heard, but today LA broke it's world record for weather.. atleast that's what my paps told me.
In fullerton today it was 112 degrees. downright outrageous. Good thing i was in an airconditioned room all of today. Now that that's over with i think it's time for some more Starcraft!!!

While playing as a Terran on a map with floating isles, It's always a good sneaky idea to stealth build a CC and float it over without your opponent knowing. This gives you a great mineral and gas lead, while you're turtled in your base while your opponents are clueless.

Great Run.

Hey guys just got some games in today, went up about 60 points. Pushes us from WORLD 350 to 250 =]

We're 4th in our division void ray tau! Check us out. I will try to post some recent game play from us, my cousin and I, but no guarantees i still don't know how to get videos over 10 mins on youtube.

Anyway more tip (from today's experience) time!


A roach will do more DPS than a mutalisk, a mass group of roaches will be able to kill a base far quicker than a mass of mutalisk of the same numbers. If you find yourself in a base race, even zerglings will win against mutalisk. Have your 2v2 partner take care of mutalisk, and you can focus on taking out all other ground units.


**we faced this team where he went quick EXP only to go hydras** So when you see an opponent pumping roaches, TRY to get mutalisk to bone the mineral line, if and ONLY if your team mate can hold off, or barely hold off. Tossing up a few spines will help A LOT.


To gain access to higher ranks you guys are going to have to think quick on your feet. Play changes win the game, for instance a game today i had about 30 mutalisk going into a battle with my teammate, we barely won, but i lost most of my mutalisk. He had gone heavy viking and MM while toss went Collossus. I used my left over mutalisk to hit the mineral line while i pumped Hydralisk out at base. During the next battle the built far too much AA and my hydralisk cleaned the rest up.

Tip #1 Mutalisk don't do very much damage
Tip #2 Learn to read your opponent
Tip #3 Think quickly, don't find yourself in a tunnel visioned match.


Hey guys, dropping by before doing a boatload of homework.

Tip today is for you protoss players.


Don't know how peopel always forget, but ALWAYS chronoboost something.

10-16/20 population you should be chronoboosting your mineral line.
20-30ish depending on your play style either boost more workers or your warp gate tech
30+ boost your temp archives/stargates/robotics

mostly everything else should be on upgrades. which brings me to my second tip!

Upgrade =]
With spare minerals and warp gate on cooldown, toss up two forges and upgrade. it never hurts to be stronger than your opponent.


Hey guys, i was just wondering after patch 1.1
Who all play terran, and how bad do you think the seige tank was nerfed?

My opinion: I think it's a really fair nerf... Before they would completely destroy all of my hydralisk before i could even get close. Also, lately i have seen less and less seige tankage but that's just me. Leave your opinions and thoughts below in the comments!

Mutalisk " Magic Box "
use it, abuse it.. fall in love

I've been on a hotstreak!

Hey guys, just updating you on my status. We're at 1135 right now! We went on some 5-1 hotstreak today pretty exciting stuff.
Stuff i realized today.
TIP #1
When you're a zerg, and you face a zerg. Quick expansion might not always be the desired build. A pack of speedlings will tarnish your quick expansion to bits. Just food for thought

TIP #2 
MM balls are very strong, but a few spines (5 in my case) added to your defending army go a LONG way.

TIP #3
If you have atleast 1 or 2 more mutalisk vs your opponent's muta ball you WILL win. micro a little but don't try too hard (often times noobs try to overmicro losing their DPS).

TIP #4
1 Psy storm does heavy heavy damage. Imagine this. Psychonic Death = Kill 20 units with a single high templar.
Seems hard right? A high templar dropping two psy storms on a pack of MMM's will ravage their numbers.
20 marines will cost them 1000 minerals.

Thanks for tuning in =D I promise i'll try to post some more videos up, i dunno how to broadcast yet.. but i will learn!

Some encouragement

This is some encouragement for you guys! Stay strong in game and not, kick ass!


ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS keep building when you're moving out for battle =]

This is what usually gets everybody from bronze to gold.

Attacking a mass army, and having your opponent barely fend off said attack to only be barraged with another wave of units (ones built at base).

this is true ESPECIALLY when you're zerg. ALWAYS spew on 25 and rmbr to spew in combat as well as morph. do NOT waste any of your larvae from spawning (cap 3 natural larvae).

DO hotkey your buildings , barracks, gateways, hatcheries, ETC.

Now go out there and kick ass anons.

Usual build order


Anyway, in 2v2 i usually play zerg and my cousin plays protoss.
I do this build order whenever i'm facing either Terran, Protoss//// Protoss Protoss //// Terran Terran.

ALWAYS build a sunken colony or two at your main and exp, it really helps! The reason why i don't do this build against zerg, is becuase a group of speedlings can really do some damage when you're focusing on macro and have fewer units.
Guys have any suggestions for 1v1 zerg?
I'm always open for a good match too my game name is Getevlcted 548
send me a tell or add me!
