    Talking PCG's Funday Monday!

    Here at PCG we know how much Monday's can suck, whether It's back to school, work or both with the possibility of a huge hangover. After years of this ongoing suffering, we have taken inspiration from the much loved "Day 9" and made your Mondays a little less painful!

    Every Monday from now on I will set all you Starcraft 2 players a task to complete during ladder play. All of them will have the focus of being entertaining, even for people who don't play the game. I'm thinking of probably casting the winning replays so If anyone has casting experience hit me up with a PM.

    From when they are announced on Monday you will all have until midnight on Sunday to post your replays. I will then judge the posted replays and announce the winners in the evening while also setting the new task.

    Post your replays below with the title in relevance to the current task using this [URL="http://www.gamereplays.org"]SITE[/URL]. Also make sure to join the private in-game channel "PC Gamer"! If you have any questions or queries feel free to contact me through the forum or in-game: "Archernick" Code = 261.



    [SIZE="6"]Current Task: "Jeepers Creepers"[/SIZE]



    [SIZE="5"]Race - Zerg[/SIZE]


    [SIZE="4"]You must use Nydus Worms as your main method of transportation. Units can only move/attack when they are on creep. Flying units are banned with the exception of Overlords/Overseers, which may travel off creep.[/SIZE]


    [SIZE="3"]Pro Tips[/SIZE]:

    [SIZE="3"]This is pretty simple when you think about it. Use Nydus worms to expand by building one at each expansion. This will generate your first flow of creep to start your Hatchery and then the rest of your buildings. Remember to use Creep Tumours to spread creep gradually toward your opponent. When on the attack either use a hidden Nydus Worm and/or Overlords to drop creep in their base to be able to attack.[/SIZE]



    Rules: You must live within the EU to enter. Anyone judging the replays (such as myself) may not submit a replay and will not be eligible to win. Judges decisions are final. One entry per person, per week. Check here for any updates/additions to the rules!

    I've done that once and it requires your opponent to be out of position or truly terrible. It works well if you make a CC in their base sneakily, make 1 SCV and run him to another hidden position to make another CC to fly to an expansion then morph the original to a PF.

    New Funday Monday is up! See first post for details!

    Come on guys I didn't get a simple submission from that last one, I know it was a hard one but that Is where all the entrainment Is!

    This weeks is inspired by a game from Idra and Huk, where Idra gg'ed out of a tounrament game after seeing a ton of Void Rays In Huk's already huge warpgate/robo army. It turns out that all the Void Rays were actually hallucinations. Something Huk has never let Idra live down.

    Shame that Idra kick his arse later after dominating the looser bracket =D.

    Get to work guys, I want replays to cast!

    So, er... what is the task for funday Monday?

    I didn't take part in last weeks as I suck at Zerg in general and don't play them a lot, so I'd have no hope of doing last weeks challenge.

    Well, I didn't win so guess I'm not eligle, but surely my opponent is? perhaps we didn't obey the rules exactly either, who knows and who cares?

    Quite effective against a six pooler! Mental note, overseers can't create creep!
    Now, who wants to touch me?

    Restarts Monday 4/7/11.

    Chances of completing next task, impossible.

    Chances of rewards upon completion, a certainty.

    Mark the date.
