Uh... Why do you have to write it soooooo long?
I'd rather read a post about getting to diamond made by a DIAMOND player. Not some wannabe doing theorycrafting ##*%.
bump!

Since when were you intelligent?
Best post I've seen on these forums.

The whole "Gold player telling people how to hit diamond lol" argument doesn't really work here because he isn't telling you build orders or specific strats and tactics. He is teaching you the fundamentals of every RTS ever.

Listen to him and practice if you want to get better. If you want to make excuses and whine about why you aren't in diamond then troll him and make worthless arguments.
Four easier steps to Diamond:

1. 6pool wrong

2. Cannon rush wrong

3. Reaper rush wrong

4. 4gate all-in Sad but true

I think you are mistaken. People are simply stating that it is wrong to say "four steps to diamond" when the author himself is not in diamond. No one is disagreeing that his posts are not good, it just that its coming from a gold player who is "technically" teaching players how to get into diamond.

Thanks for the post! This will definitely help me out a lot!
TL;DR

Which is kinda depressing to me cause this looks very useful, I just can't be bothered to read this entire thing while I have a cold. D:
Protoss: 4-gate

Terran: MM ball

Zerg: play smart, scout, counter your opponents build, have good APM, keep up on macro, always have at least 1 more base than your opponent

those will get you diamond
I became much faster just by practicing the first step. Thanks Orb, will follow all your steps eventually. :D
Orb, sir... You are both my hero and my most hated enemy.

I'm only bronze league, but had worked my way into the top 10 and was rather proud of myself. After reading thie first page of this thread... I'm going back to the drawing board.

I'm switching to GRID (Wasn't even aware of it til reading this, played with it some and agree on it's efficiency) and am going to start focusing on refining my control group usage, then move on to working with YABOT (which I also wasn't aware of), then micro, which has always been my weakness. Basically I'm going to have to re-learn SC2 all over again, but it will be worth it, I can tell.

Diamond, here we come.... In about a year... maybe...
Hey look guys, the gold level player is telling us how to get to diamond! Maybe you should actually get there first, and then describe how to get there.
