I've been getting deeper and deeper into SC2 lately but I realize I need plenty of practice before I feel comfortable enough with my play style. Most matches start off with me thinking "Not to shabby, I getting the hang of this". But sometime during midgame it's "God no, I'm doing everything wrong. There's chaos everywhere". And the more things that happens, the more my brain shuts down. I forget my strategy, I forget expanding and building units, and I even forget hotkeys.
This is of course a typical reaction for a newbie like me. And hopefully I'll get pass this.
Do you have any tips for someone like me? I know the game inside out, in theory. But the execution is poor. Should I turn down the game speed or would that be counteractive. Should I practice against AI, or is that a waste of time? Any other tips of getting serious practice in mid and lategame action?
Or is it just playing it over and over that matters?
