I just won a Grandmaster for the first time!
This is nothing to brag about, but I am really happy since I’m a shit player.
I was playing unranked because my internet connection is having the “time of the day”. I held the Roach Baneling all-in and slowly won the game.
My skill level is probably Platinum-Diamond at best.

Wow you are only diamond? You have way more game knowledge than me (master Terran)!
I have not played any ladder games for this season, but probably I will be in gold (the retirement league). My mechanics is poor, and my micro is horrible (probably I picked the wrong race). =(
It is frustrating when I know what to do but I cannot do them.
Maxilicious are you the next Zerg bonjwa ;3
I rather be the Protoss bonjwa. ;)
I know the feeling, it is just so epic even if you know that it does not really matter.
By the way:
1. Could you upload some of your replays?
2. I would like to read about your opinion of the past HSC.
I’m not really comfortable to share my account ID with anyone, but I may consider it in the future. You can have a laugh at my control. lol.
I followed TaeJa’s run in HSC, but there wasn’t something specific to talk about. But he did let me think about something against Zerg, and I will blog it soon. =)
I once won against a (formerly) GM Zerg by holding his roach/baneling all-in, as well. Yeah, go us garbage players!
My opponent didn’t execute the all in well, and I had scouted it. So things were going well for me.
Would you mind posting the replay? Im kinda lost with TvZ at the moment because i just cant read what the zerg is doing (90% of my TvZ’s this season it’s been either ling-bane or roach-ling-bane all ins and almost all of them have caught me by total surprise).
I’ve been doing the standard reactor hellion -> 3cc -> double ebay for long time but recently every zerg have been all inning me which seems to be almost impossible to hold for me because i really cant read it’s coming in time. It’s very frustrating to scout 3rd hatch and double evo and assume it’s gonna be a standard macro build from the zerg but 2 minutes later he busts my front with bane-roach-ling all in. Is there any reliable ways and timings to scout if zerg is going for all in early enough or should i just not go 3cc anymore?
I would love to get some advice for defending these all ins because if i survive into the mid game i win almost every time.
Take a look at this,
If you scouted a 3rd hatch, try to see if there are Drones there. No Drones or few Drones, it is likely that an all-in is coming.
