So now I have played my very first 2 matches of Practice League. Both were 2v2.
The first one was kind of hectic; I was not
used to going at Normal speed at all and was nearly thrown off (I'm more accustomed to Fast). First one of the enemies left after I trashed his attacking force with my superior numbers and tactical advantage, and near the end, my ally left the battle for some odd reason. Then it was me against the enemy (who was Protoss). He had Carriers and his attacking force nearly crushed my defense coalition. Then I pushed him back using Marine/Thors and threw in Battlecruisers as heavy air support. He had a sizeable force and probably would have defeated me, but I kept up the attrition and won in the end.
The second game was actually very, very enjoyable for me. I actually took the time to talk with my ally this match, and we heavily coordinated our builds and tactics, where we even expanded aggressively, taking the Xel'naga towers in the center to see which of the rocks they would smash as their route of approach. We easily routed their initial attack, but soon found ourselves out-teched, with the enemy having a Mothership (which I scouted as my Marauders were harassing their workers).
Undaunted, I told my ally to ready anti-air defenses and start pumping out Vikings for the inevitable Void Ray/Mothership attack. I sent out an attack force of Marines and Marauders to intecept the attack and managed to damage the Mothershp down to 5% HP, which my Vikings easily finished off, but were crushed by the previously-cloaked Void Rays. My Marauders were now engaging the Stalkers, but had no way to counter the Void Rays. That was when my ally graciously arrived with a fresh group of Vikings to bolster our attack.
Our enemies quit soon after, friendly banter ensued, and we bid each other farewell.
I am very much starting to enjoy this now.
Here we go, any comments and constructive criticism would be appreciated:
