Drew Getting Severely Beaten

Post by 36drew »

Map: Ozarks (sigh)
Mathcup: Drew German vs. Hazardroxs PR47 Russia
Its standard builds for both of us but his micro is uber and mine sucks. But for all you russian players its a great build to copy. Its a 10minute game and might be worth a watch.

my advise when playing big shots like Hazzy, don't do the usual build orders, it's kinda useless and almost guarantees you to lose.

You could have fooled me, every time I play you, you out-micro me. If your micro sucks, what does that say about mine? :oops:

Drew, when we had a couple of games the other week, i thought your micro was at a decent level. Although, mine probrably sucks!!

Once you get to that level, you really need to be at tip top speed.

Drew, you should have asked to him to help you out for micro?

Hotkey, but the thing is I am always bouncing from civ to civ and that changes the ones I use :p

Well then you should get something standard like 1 hand infantry, 2 musks, 3 RI, 4 cav, 5 rc, 6 artillery, etc ^^ To avoid problems I use the mouse but I feel it fails when in the middle of a battle i have to click stagger mod or covered mode (specially covered mode) in or out. Otherwise it does ok. Have you tried using just the mouse? Practice makes perfect :p
