Zerg vs Protoss - A decent macro game!

Hey guys!  A decent ZvP for you guys on Scrap Station.

Instead of the protoss dictating the way I play, the roles are reversed for a change :)

I still need to work on talking and playing at the same time.  I only cheered my units on this game lol.

FPVOD: Zerg vs Terran on Lost Temple

Unfortunately, I haven't been able to get any real good games lately.  Here's a replay of how I have to react to seeing 2-3 early barracks.  The Terran has the choice to expand or push out behind his 2-3 barracks, and this makes it difficult for me having to prepare my economy, or preparing unneeded defenses setting back my economy.

Some things I have to work on:
- reseting  creep tumors
- not over-reacting to 2 early barracks, also not under-reacting
- drone saturation for my 3rd
- flanking

Hopefully I'll be able to play some challenging macro games.  The last few have either been cheeses or just roll overs.

Thanks for watching guys!  Tune in when I'm live too and talk to me in chat.

Some people have mentioned it, but those people looking to buy SC2, Amazon has it for $50.  It came out at $60 and I can definitely say it has paid for itself and 10x more in entertainment, fun, and making new friends.

FPVOD: Starcraft 2 Masters League Zerg 1v1 Tournament Match - ZvT on Steppes of War

Hey guys! Just a game I played yesterday vs a terran on Steppes of War.

How to do an effective 4 drone rush followed up by a macro game! Went a bit longer than I think it should have, but I have trouble attacking into terrans and finding those openings and vulnerabilities.

Video will be processing, but should be up shortly! Enjoy:

Starcraft 2 Masters League Zerg - ZvP 4 Gate

Here's a short first person VOD. This is a game where I go up against a protoss who does a 4 gate and don't react properly. However, I make the best out of a bad situation.

Again, no real commentary - but I will soon! I just need to work on talking while playing.

Things I could have done better:
- Scouting
- Overlord placement
- Overlord sacking
- Better spine crawler placement

I'll have more first person commentary VODs in a bit :D. Actual commentary meaning me talking and playing at the same time. Still working on talking and playing at the same time.

Update on Jungle Basin and a bit on Adsense

Some Starcraft II news:

An update live on the EU server is a small change to Jungle Basin, but will change the game a LOT.  There is now a gold base outside of your main base.  3rd base is easy now... but Terran is going to be able to herp derp stomp everything and take its 4th base so easy.  It's going to be interesting to see how games will now be played on this map.

Off topic news -
An interesting note on Adsense: It seems that for those using Adsense, users won't get credit for when people click on an ad and don't stay on the advertisement for more that 20-25 seconds.  It's a shame for bloggers and other users that attract traffic towards those ads because it's not his/her fault that the advertisement cannot keep the attention of its clickers. 

I'll be posting another first person VOD later today of one of my ladder games, so stay tuned!

cSObroto (Z) vs Kyo (P)

Hey guys! Please be patient while the video processes, but it should be up soon!

Just a friendly game between me and Kyo. Kyo is a very good Master's league protoss player who plays mostly just practice games rather than playing on the ladder. He kicks my ass most of the time, but let's see how he does here.

Watch live video from brotosterone's SCII stream on Justin.tv

I could have done a lot of things better, such as creep spread and properly droning and setting up my 3rd base. I'll be continuing to find places where I need to improve. Let me know if you have any questions.

Oh, and I'll try to commentate what I'm doing and why I'm doing it much more for the next vid I post up.

Thanks guys!
