Season 5 Status

This is just a short update of the recently finalized season 5. I ended up playing exactly 100 games (somehow I lost one replay in the process). I had clear impression that I did reasonably well in ZvP, but terribly in the two other matchups. The numbers, however, tells a different story.


Apparently I did okay vs. terran and only really had problems in ZvZ. I guess I had a lot of fairly quick wins vs. terran that I just forgot about and only remembered the long drawn out games that didn’t end so well for me.

Anyways, I played roughly half my games vs. platinum players and the other half vs. gold players. With a 50% win rate I hoped for a promotion to platinum. That I didn’t get in season 5 (it came 5 games into season 6 though).


  1. Glad to see you posting again - you've been missed in the SC2 blogosphere :)

    Interesting results - I hear ZvZ at your level can be a coin flip - or at least very micro intensive.

    Congrats on getting into Platinum! What was your goal when you switched to Zerg? Was it getting back into diamond? Can't remember how high you got as Protoss or Terran...

  2. I was in Diamond as Protoss back in season 1 &2 when that was easy. I reached Platinum as Terran. I think that was season 4.

    Now my goal is to get diamond at least. Maybe master as zerg. How long that is going to take I don't know.
