      High latency

      im currently living in an area with very bad internet and im running 1400 latency average and i was wondering if that is gonna end my chances of atleast making it to the gold league?

      ive played at 700 latency (this was before my net was upgraded) and that was hard enough to play with regardless. At 1400 it will be difficult to carry out any micro possible, and leaves macro to win, which will only take you to gold maybe plat at most. Without a decent speeded internet you will be having a lot of issues winning :/

      Solid macro can take you all the way to masters without any micro. In the case where you cant micro at all, your macro better be damn solid

      Pfff play zerg, micro is nice but borderline unnecessary with zerg.

      If your macro is tight it makes zerg micro only necessary at the highest of levels. Mid diamond is obtainable even with terrible latency, but 1400 might be a bloody slideshow.

      I think someone on reddit made diamond by just attack moving stalkers with no micro; never moving his screen view from his bases to prove that solid macro is what's most important.

      Macro is more important until the point where 5 stalkers vs 5 micro'd stalkers.
      Obviously the micro'd stalkers will win as they can just run bak before dieing.
      You should be able to win with pure numbers until an even number of units are battleing.
