Shaft added a topic in StarCraft II: Legacy of the VoidMeta-Game Magic: ZvT Macro styles with vVvAlucardvVvAlucard is coming on tonight's show as a bit of a counter-point to the last episode of Meta-Game Magic. I loved our last episode, with vGAlkresh, about pressuring Terran who get too greedy -- but not everyone did. So this week, we will be looking at a much more passive style that focuses on getting more economically for your time, without dying a painful death.
If you have trouble staying alive, or don't really feel like you're a very good macro player, this is the episode for you! This episode will be airing in about 15 minutes (sorry for such a short notice, but previous engagements were cancelled and I can't leave fans hanging!). That is, 9 to 915 EST, as our guest gets warmed up appropriately.

Shaft added a topic in StarCraft II: Legacy of the VoidMeta-Game Magic: Pressuring Terran Openers (ZvT)In today's ZvT meta-game, most Zerg are content with their fast hatchery opening. Generally speaking, after this, there are two approaches: 2 base with a macro-hatch, made famous by personalities like Stephano, or more eclectic styles like Nerchio's roach ling infestor composition, which employs roaches to get a third up earlier, instead of a macro hatchery.
Essentially, the Zerg meta-game in this match-up is defensive, and revolves around Hellions, working under the assumption that due to supply depot walls, bunkers, and OP marines, Zerg is not in a position to apply pressure early on. Not only that, but the assumption is, it's not beneficial to apply pressure early on -- afterall, those units are drones not made.
On this episode of Meta-Game Magic, vGAlkresh will be joining your host to discuss why this assumption is flawed, and explain how Zerg can apply pressure to the Terran based solely on his opener (rather than, say, a counter-attack that is dependant upon the Terran moving out), and why it is beneficial.
Your host, vVvShaft, forever flying in the face of the meta-game and unafraid to look at all perspectives, is a noted caster for GameReplays.org, as well as vVv Gaming.
He is also a caster for LegitGaming, FraggedNation.com, and the host of several other shows. vGAlkresh is a top 25 Masters player and representative of team vG known for his stylistic aggression and odd interpretations of the game.
This episode of Meta-Game Magic will air Thursday night at 6 PM EST on http://twitch.tv/theonlyshaft
VoDs will be available thereafter at http://blip.tv/theonlyshaft
