I have seen this time and again, in both lower league and higher league games, both as a Zerg player and against them, as well as on YouTube replays and during tournaments. Zerg players, far too few of you build Spore Crawlers against Protoss. At least, you don’t build them until the damage has already […]Read More A Brotip for my Zerg Buddies… Interpret Protoss Openers, Build Spores!
Not too long ago, I came to a realization about my “brotips” segment. The estimable @ChocolateChoux helped me realize that all of you are more interested in improving your own play in StarCraft 2 than hearing about how I’m trying to improve mine. Therefore, I’ll be modifying Brotips posts in future. I’ll still be basing what I […]Read More Brotips reimagined.

Breathe, man!Read More Brotip: CombatEX talks about Protoss
In homage to @mycotoxin_zerg‘s excellent blog zergnewbs, I’ll be doing a StarCraft 2 themed segment on this blog called Brotips. It will chronicle the painful journey as I attempt to being a Gold-level Zerg player to being a Gold (or higher?) league Protoss player. I will be evaluating my game performance, talking about the difference between Protoss and Zerg play (as far […]Read More Brotips – Protoss tips from a Protoss newbie, Episode 1
