oh yeah no idea why i didn't post that yesterday, i actually wanted to, but i started playing sc2 again and probably will keep that up for a while (2v2 w/ a friend)

question for those of you who play 2v2 tho;

what can I do against a 6pool in a 2v2? To be more specific, the guy I play with is bronze league and he can't deal with it, so if they hit him he can't deflect it, it makes me pull drones as well and he will still probably be extremely far behind. Example I had yesterday - ZPvZP. The protoss just made a ton of stalkers and both of us had close to no workers, I also had to give him money to actually get somewhere. We were able to fend off that as well but we weren't able to deal with the extreme lack of economy due to those attacks and ultimately died to mutas. What can i do against that kind of stuff in 2v2; in 1v1 I don't have a problem with 6- or 10pool anymore btw.

i agree it is pretty bad. not sure how it shot up in popularity so quickly besides the fact that it's a remake of a wc3 map

Some terran did a 1-1-1 to me. I lost my expansion and I cleared a bit of his marines and a couple tanks, and started making hydras to clear the banshees. I went to poke in his base and he had a tank so I backed off and expanded again. He then comes at my base with like 8 ravens, he killed quite a bit of drones with turrets but I killed them off with lings. He then loses his base because I realized it was only 1 tank holding it and baneling busted it. then he lifts off all his shit and finally gives up after a bunch of mutas start killing his shit. It was kinda fun match.

It was like 4 at first, then 6 not 8 all at once. I gave him too much time because I thought If I tried to baneling bust sooner, I would just lose the only units I had then he pushes out again.
I played like horseshit. I played him thinking it was 3 rax or some other bullshit. I didn't have the towers and gave him time to make 8 ravens on 1 base.

spire would probably have been more effective than hydras (always is) or even infestors

the first engagement would have been very different if you had conserved your lings

though it was funny how he tried to expand 20 minutes into the game

I only went hydra because of short notice, his tanks/banshee were in my base. But I guess getting spire sooner would of been much better regardless what he did. I think the game could of gone much differently if I had the towers and didn't sack the lings like that.

he could also have done a lot more damage with more efficient turret placement to prevent your lings from surrounding them as easily

approximately 90% of the affected employees will come from departments not related to game development

They also specifically noted that the World of Warcraft development team will not be affected, nor will any other development of publishing schedules.
cutting the fat most likely
a lot of companies are doing stuff like this and will probably hire back half of the types of positions they shedded as unpaid interns over the next year or something
