Oh god I love low econ games.
My favorite game to this day is a ZvZ

Both side had one base left with at most 3 Drones.
He had Roaches, with about 8 Infestors.
I had Roaches, with about 4 Infestors and 3 Ultralisk.
He's constantly poking at me with Infestors squads, and because his Roach count is higher I can't retaliate.

I just go to kill him with everything, apparently Ultralisk are really good against Roaches when they can't be stopped, and the Roaches can't move.

Sometimes they piss me off. One game was a TvZ. I transitioned into Sky Terran - Had 8 Ravens and 13 BCs with maxed upgrades. He tries to spam corruptors, but I just yamato and Seeker the hell out of him. I constantly do Hellion runbys until he builds a bunch of spines. Then he runs out of gas so he literally builds 30+ Spores out in the middle of Daybreak (infront of the forward base near the watchtower on his side).
So I go around, kill everything he has. He builds about 20 lings and does a runby -- Kills all of my SCVs and orbitals save 1 orbital at 0 energy... Production completely gone. I eventually get the lings and he runs out of money completely, with no drones, but I have 1 muling OC, no production and I have to wait for the mule and then the SCV.
He's left with 7 Queens and about 30 spores. So I begin the meticulous task of double-yamato-ing every. single. damn. spore. Took me the better part of 20 minutes to do so, what with energy recharging, etc.

I float money like crazy so I just take every expansion and make sure to build some kind of tech before the lair/hive goes down.

If you against Terran and he floats his CC, bling mines are a godsend.

I think I win the prize

I was in a game with a zerg where we had a base race. I had 4 floating command centers and 21 ravens.

My only units were ravens. He had about 10 ultralisks and a few spine crawlers. The ultralisks had 6 Armour so it was only natural that the auto turrets did 1 damage to them.

I think I agreed to a draw for the sole reason that I was going on a trip the next day. Killing his units with ravens would have required me to spend a long time and sacrificing ravens to get something else out would have relied on him not checking around for buildings with his few remaining units. It was a mess to be sure.

Edit:// Ravens did not have seeker missile.

hellion drop vs warpgate rush, you know it's low econ when you lose all your scvs, have to float out of your main base

I love 'em! But I also suck at them! Usually what happens is this: I wind up with formidable army with broodlords in it, but my only remaining structure is an uprooted spine or spore crawler. Somehow, he manages to dart in and pick off the crawler with a few units, and I lose. =p

It's true that phoenix can kite mutas all day... But guess what?

Mutas sitting over a mineral line is still pretty good and will kill most of the probes before getting killed by the phoenix (which actually needs to attack THIRTEEN times to kill a muta, since the muta regens health. 15 seconds for 1 phoenix to kill a muta in HotS with the increased regen)

Those are so so stressful.

But at the same time, extremely rewarding if you win.

It's amazing what four Hellions could do back then. There needs to be more abusive playstyles like that.
