(A)_vs_[nCn] ZProtoSS Shrike, TWL Base++ ladder USA
Remember the days when Base, or in the case of the US, Base++ was what people were playing? Yeah, it relied on teamwork....Except if you had players that were EXCEPTIONAL in their positions... ZP (not the spunk nub that has the same initials), ZProtoss could turn a match...in base/base++ or classic because the guy lived and breathed and was unmatched in his position. There are a dozen incredible match changing LD...A dozen match changing HO...etc... Anyone who dedicated themselves to a particular role and absolutely lived and breathed it, was able to be a match changer without cowboying. ZP was one such player and deserves huge respect for what he did. We had Gwinch here in AU/NZ...there were others who could shrike amazingly...Camo (one of the best easily), meat, bk-, mojo, and mikhail (and some others unmentioned no doubt) played shrike large when they played it, from the US guys like slut, harn and deezy played incredibly well too. Never seen a euro player shrike in a match changing fashion but I have no doubt they had a couple. Anyway. As I've said before: ZProstoss: - Best- Shriker- Ever. Prove me wrong because I love play makers and wanna see if anyone ever got close.
