I don't play zerg or terran, but I'll tell you this; protoss is definitely the harder to play. Terran and zerg get free & easy scouting while protoss must rely on pure intuition and genius in order to perform.

It requires more micro/macro and the skill cap is very high. I only manage to stay competitive because I'm a superior player on all levels. Protoss is only successful in high level play because we happen to have the best players. Some protoss builds seem overpowered, but that's only because zerg/terran have yet to adapt.

I'm an absolute hero and martyr for playing this race, and remind myself constantly of the manliness required to undertake such a burden.

This opinion is my own and of course, is 100% valid because I'm one of the world's top 5000 players. If only blizzard would wake up and fix this game.

Also, switch protoss with zerg/terran in the above message depending on whatever you play.

Lies, you picked terran because it was op in the beta.
Also wouldn't random be more challenging than any single race?

Actually Protoss has the lowest win ratio, especially in Korea.

Blizzard's customer support is garbage. Just got an email saying that my account has been suspended for 24 hours for saying fing gm player"......WTH!?

EDIT: Funny thing is that they don't suspend your PTR account, if it wasn't for SC2 I would have nothing to do with Blizzard. This is around the 10th time that my account has been suspended over something absurd.

What free easy scouting :S? Toss has Obs which are hard to even notice unless you're really eyeballing every part of your base. Terran has scans which cost them a mule. Zerg has O-lords. Unless you're letting units run into your base like speedlings or something I don't see what you consider easy and free.

If your account has been suspended 10times....maybe, just maybe, you should rage less

Toss is the most unsuccessful in the highest level of play,(only mc is of top calibre) but has a lotta players in low-to mid gm cause it's easy to learn, but has low skill cap. The game is yet to be balanced.

and that graph isnt official... 1800games?

Zerg needs to scout more than t and p, not to mention zvz which is a scouting fest. Also, in early game, zerg is easiest to get scouted due to no block.
