    I killed cow once when he was Zerg. I was hoping to leave one building but then someone attacked and I got distracted.... :D

    The sad thing about this one though was cow just knocked one of Jake's Terran buildings into the red, and he burned to death. Cow was Zerg, so he couldn't repair.

    Oh, it all makes sense now. Cow said Aleld attacked him after you left, which had distracted him, so here's my take on what happened:

    Cow attacks Jake
    Cow stops attacking Jake, moves units back
    Aleld attacks Cow
    Cow hits spacebar to move view to attacked area
    Cow's hydralisks auto-acquire Jake's building and destroy it

    The way to avoid such instances is to use the Hold Position command on your units when you back them up.

    There was way too much stuff going on. I had a group of lurkers in jake's base. Aleld starts attacking me with mutas. I need to pull in antiair guys so I flip back to my base, and bring over my hydras. Mutas attack hydras and while I'm busy with those my lurkers continue to take out supply depots, but I couldn't get to my lurkers because there were too many units on top of them.

    Also I couldn't repair.

    Aiee, okay nevermind, I have no idea what really happened.

    What cow said.

    I just pieced together information by what they said in-game and here, and on what cow and aleld attacked me with.

    Jake's (basically) base was set up like this when I got to it

    Code:
                                                /         (B)      |
                                              /                    \_
                                             |                       \
    Cow's Base                                \          L   L  [SD] \            My Base
                                               |           L L [SD]  |
                                               |         L L   [SD]  |
                                                \          L L [SD]  |
                                                 \___________________/
    
    with the (B) being Jake's Bunker
    the [SD] being Jake's Supply Depots
    the L representing Cow's Lurkers (not exact count)
    and the other lines being the basic border of his base


    Cow was slowly taking out Jake's 4 remaining SD, when I brought over 3 Muta's, and started taking his lurkers out. He did nothing in retailiation for a little while (destroyed most of Jake's SD's while waiting), and then he brought over a bunch of hydra's to take out my Muta's. When he had about taken them out, he brought his remaining lurker force (which had by now destroyed all of Jake's SD's) up near his bunker, and burrowed them. I assume he was just trying to move them so any further air attack by me would reach his hydra's before his lurkers.

    Heh. Haite and I played a game of SC last night, a very un-fun UMS where you sit there and it tells you to turn the music down and the sounds up... then this ASCII ghost face pops up and looks at you to the tune of a pre-pubescent loser screaming into a microphone which is jammed down his throat.

    funy stuff.

    edit oh no what the hack haoppened to my crap artowrk! :noid:
