In fact, there is imbalance between marines/lings/zealots. One is fast, one has range, and the other makes a great tank. Between the three, they aren't "balanced", but they each bring something to the table, making them "fair". You could argue that the entire game is balanced like this.

To answer your question;
- Snipe infestors with colossus.
- Make very good use of FF.
- Add zealots WITHOUT charge to deal with lings that get through.
- Phoenix work great to snipe off overlords, and to disable infestors.
- Make sure health/energy bars are always showing so that you can ignore low mana infestors.
- A good trick is to put yourself in a spot where you know the opponent will attempt a 2-front attack. Bait him into it and completely wall off one side, and take out portions at a time.
- HTs are awesome vs this army composition too.

Edit: Of course you also need to consider how the game progressed to get there.

Yea it's more of getting to late game in good shape rather than army composition problem.

I usually get early robo and push with 5 gates +1 with 2 immortals with is pretty good, especially on closer spawns and against any kind of roach play. Even if I don't end the game straight away I can kill zerg's 3rd or in the worst case take mine while pressuring.

This doesn't work well against sling/infestor though so I have to stay in my base. Soon after that there are multiple drops so still I can't move out and even if I defend perfectly it doesn't seem to put the zerg behind. Eventually after I manage to get my ball and move out the zerg is on 5+ bases and is so ahead in economy that it doesn't matter what army composition I have as he can create a perfect counter to it, and even if I survive the first battle, recreate it within a minute.

I believe it starts at 5:00 P.M. Eastern, I'm pretty sure Team Liquid has the time and all the brackets up on their site, if not check their forum, the LR thread will have everything in it.

But yes, I have a feeling MLG is going to be particularly epic, they pulled out all the stops to make up for the failure of MLG Dallas.

There are the pools, except it hasn't been updated, bomber has since been replaced oGs.MC in group C ( Rofl )
