I BARELY ever face broods, and even then its only a few broods and farely easy to beat.
Infestors are next to useless against mech. It takes about a thousand fungels to kill a tank or thor lol.
Watch my latest replay i posted and it will give you a good idea of what i do. Basically i go for a prehive push, and with the massive amount of tanks i have it decimates his army.
If you notice though i do get 2 additional starports so i can pump vikings to rally towards my push.
Infested Terran work against mech, Fungal doesn't. Remember that Fungal is mostly about stopping movement. Mech doesn't actually want to move any more than it has to.Since the mech style of play is a slow one, do you face off against broodlords often? Since most of your gas is already invested in tanks, do you have a proper counter to this?
Also I don't believe that you beat zergs often. Haven't you heard, fungal is OP and is killing SC2.
Fungal makes games very boring to watch. So yes it is killing much of the esports aspect of the game.

01/27/2013 09:54 AMPosted by SmokahontussI used to play zerg, but when school started I started having less and less time so I became less and less serious about playing one race and trying to advance a fast pace. Now, when I get the opportunity to play, I usually play Terran as I find it really interesting and a very dynamic race. Even if I have poor micro, do you think it's bad to play a marine tank style? I strongly prefer it over mech, just because I love to get 3 bases and get tons of marines flowing. I have a second account that I used to mess around on and I'm in gold league with Terran on that and I do okay, but as I start to rank up will a marine tank style be really difficult to win with if my micro isn't the best?
01/27/2013 11:59 AMPosted by IncubusI'm curious what your record is if your winrate is an estimated 95%. That's like winning 19/20 games. Which I find incredibly hard to believe at the master level.
01/27/2013 12:11 PMPosted by Chansenso do me a favor, i created a thread a little bit ago titled "NEW META TvZ" i would like to hear your thoughts on it.
i win 19/20 TvZ games. My Tvp is solid except im not so good at holding all ins. My TvT is decent but not great
The few times that i lose TvZ are usually due to critical mistakes on my part.
For instance, 1 MAJOR thing you must do when you push out for that prehive push. Always have a raven. Otherwise he will burrow roaches and crush you.
What kind of mech build do you use? Like how many building on two base and what are you making out of them?
Right now I'm using 1 rax FE into the MVP blue flame hellion timing. While I'm attacking trying to kill drones, lings, and larvae I have cloak banshees going. I add on another factory and I have 3 going making 1 thor, 1 tank, 2 hellions, and a port making 1 banshee at a time. With double upgrades going.
infested terrans are garbage against mech. They use to be good, but IT were nerfed. So 2-2 Mech absolutely destroys infested terrans. A few blue flame hellions and their worthless. You want to snipe infestors with your banshees if possible, or target fire with tanks. Again you dont want to engage if your in a clump. Mech is 1000 times more effective if its spread out

Hey hey, just played a game today, TvZ.
It went well, but I ran into a few bumps lol:
- I got all giddy on the drone roasts xD which led me to forget about the double armory and double factory for thors for about 45 seconds, thankfully he didn't come with mutas but still, bad bad fingrknitter ><
- My opponent really couldn't handle me, and he went overboard on spines on his natural and third so I didn't lose a lot of my hellions;
- he pushed with roach hydra and I had 26 hellions (I was maxed, but I definitely don't need 26 lol) and only 11 tanks (and they were staggered poorly)
- another fail in that battle, I had 79 scvs. So with 79 scvs and 26 hellions, my tank and even thor count was too low for that battle.
However, I went ape !@#$ with factories and planetaries + supply depot wall offs and by the time he got to my half I was remaxed (I sacked some scvs and hellions after that) and I kept him at a juicy units lost deficiency for the rest of the game ;)
A lot more successful than my marine tanking, pretty much because the hellions really do totally deny zerglings, the tanks are great against roaches and well its just a composition of counters.
Thanks for the help :D
hey man so yeah my tvz has been a little weak last couple days was doing real well now im facing plats and getting rolled. let me preface with I LOVE BIO!!! i obv bio in tvp and i bio in tvt as well with very fast upgrades and drop all over the place. I have been going bio tank in tvz and the only games i win are vs mass roaches, mutas, or cheese. I cant beat ling bling festor or even muta ling bling. !@#$ing hate banelings.
what is your basic mech build order i know you build 2-3 thors and tons of tanks, mainly seeing what you do with a starport and if your are buidling any marines and marauders after factories are up
