MMM micro isn't much different than any other micro really. It's not as hard as mech micro or anything but in certain situations it needs more micro and control than most things. Plus factor ghosts in that bunch.

MMM does require quite a bit of mirco. Since MMM clump up so easy, against any type of AOE type unit, you need to split up your units so you just don't get steamrolled. It requires a bit of practice to do with the stim.

The easiest is race to mirco is probably protoss. Force field is a god sent.

I don't see how MMM micro is not exceptionally easy. It's the only really powerful force I've seen that functions best as a big homogenous blob. MMM forces are called "balls" for a reason. And there's no casting involved with MMM. It's just a big ball of death that moves and attacks as one mass. What could be simpler than that?

Against zerg, MMM (Marines, Maraders, and Medivac) doesn't really need to worry unless zerg is spamming infestors (can one really spam infestors?); however, against protoss, MMM may be really hard to micro seeing as you'll want 1 hotkey set to the whole unit, 1 set for half, another set for half, and maybe another set for ghosts so they can get out of Psi storms (although Protoss should be getting hammered with EMPs)

You obviously are not a Terran player. Microing MMM is pretty hard especially later game.

Against Protoss : Storm dodging, I spread out my troops in groups so they don't form lines vs Colossus, knowing when to stim or not to stim, specifically if you stim vs Colossus your marines will die in 1 less hit, avoiding forcefields, kiting, marauders targeting armored units, ghosts EMPing immortals and targeting light units ( sentry / zealots ), ect ect. Targeting is very important, as well as spreading them out.

Against Z : Marines targeting lings / hydra, kiting, marauders targeting roach / infestor / ultra, avoiding banelings is very difficult at times as speedlings can surround, keep your units spread out to avoid fungael growth, ect ect.

Really it's not any different than anything else? I mean whats so hard about Protoss micro? It's the same damn thing to be honest. Same goes for Zerg but its more dependent on surrounds and using speed to your advantage. It's all about the same.


No good T's 1A and win, you're thinking of lower level T's who 1A and win... but TBH it's the opponents they are facing that suck and can't learn to deal with 1A Terran.

SC2 is probably the first game to come out this year that I can actually max out without a problem, which I think, is sad. I guess it is alright since it is an rts but I still think they could have done better and the game has I think a lot of unneeded stuff (like zoom, so pointless).

I just hope Diablo 3 doesn't look this bad.
You wrote in your previous post, "Graphics haven't improved all that much either, you might not no the difference."

You ARE blind if you cannot tell the difference and said that the graphics haven't improved.
