Z micro is easy, except in ZvZ. Muta magic boxing isn't impressive at all, and besides that there's really just surrounding with lings, etc. What's difficult is microing while needing to inject larva, spread creep, etc. That's where the great players differentiate from the good ones IMO. There's just no micro tricks that make me go "wow" unlike marine splitting against banelings (I still remember that Kyrix vs MKP game from GSL2).

P... most A-move friendly race in the game. Zealot archon lol.

How is that so? To fight the P deathball since the patch you have to micro your loaded overlords to drop banelings while microing infestors to fungal the protoss ball in place while microing the rest of your attacking units. I've seen people do it but it doesn't look easy.

Terran is the most OP easy unbalanced race by far

Mules
Scan (no need to make detection)
Lifting buildings (Terran who loses base race is just bad)
Marines. Beginning high dps that can hit air
Tanks once sieged are ungodly
Marauders with slow


.... I accidentally picked random today vs Zerg. I got Terran and marines + banshees + 2 orbitals = easy win

Could you possibly send me a replay? I find it really hard to beat zerg most of the time. I think I have only 1 win vs zerg so far..

And then you play against someone who builds an extra queen to kill your banshee harass, and 3 banelings to blow up your marines.

So you go marine tank medivac next time. The mutas keeps you in your base and the sling+bling infestor combo still devours your army when you decide to move out.

The one game you played doesn't indicate that Terran is OP, it just indicates that your opponent didn't scout and react to your build. An overlord spotting a starport at 6:30ish still gives zerg lots of time to throw an extra 2 queens up and perhaps a spore crawler if they're extra jumpy. Just like if I scout a zerg and see no expo I immediately bunker up and hold off expanding until their roach rush or baneling bust hits.

Generalizing that a certain race is the ezmode winrar doesn't make sense. Terran just feels more friendly because the mechanics behind macro are relatively simple (but very difficult to master)- build x mixture of buildings at x time and constantly produce units out of those buildings and call down MULEs- protoss has chrono boost to carefully use and gate timing to master and zerg has inject, droning vs units and expansion timing to master. Every race is different.

Yeah, I'm not sure I understand. If protoss mechanics was so easy shouldn't they get like the highest win rate? Also micro involves mechanics as well as macro. What can be easier than having a single production building and a-moving (or right-clicking) all your units.

umm, winning a TvsZ doesn't imply that Terran is easy. Too bad you got a bad Zerg, would've loved to see how you would've felt had you went up against a macro Zerg. Believe me, you wouldn't think TvsZ is that easy especially after your first push is crushed

No, I'm not sure I'll get one, at least not for a while. I barely have time to play on EU at the moment.
