I made sure to use all the frigs I had doing battle with their navy. Perhaps you mean use them earlier. I built some land units on the side islands that were never used except to kill a few engineers doing a lackluster expansion. I don't think they were a significant drain on my eco.
I agree I didn't scout enough. I don't think much about opening BO except to balance Extractor construction and E. If someone could shed some more light on it that would help.
@FtXCommando I did have map control and alot more mexes, but they still won. He even started making RASed support commanders instead of trying to gain more map control.
I controlled most of the map and shouldnt of had any reason to loose, but I somehow still did.
I was doing what everyone always says to do, being aggressive, controlling the map, and gaining more mass extractor points. Yet he still managed to keep up with my eco and even pass it despite having much less territory.
I've had alot of these kinds of games before, where I would think I'm fighting a noob because they are not expanding or attacking, but once 30 minutes go by they surprise me with a super weapon and steamroll me over, like the whole game was a farce after all.
When you have many extractor points spread across the map what's better, upgrading each and every one to t2 before upgrading any to t3, or just focusing on making t3 extractors at your main base?
Heres the replay
