Banelings

I had a TvZ Match this morning and my opponent decimated me with banelings and speedlings. what is a good counter to bane/speed-lings in the early game? I didn't stand much of a chance because he was silver and i bronze.
post #22136 of 25319
To me banelings haven't been a problem since I learned to split. The total cost of one baneling is 75 minerals and 25 gas. So they basically cost double that of a marine. One marine is the equivalent of 50 minerals.

Now in theory ... One baneling explodes on one marine this means that 1 baneling lubing up one marine is an ineffective trade. This means that in order to counter baneling you have to make his trades inefficient. This is done by good splitting. Go to arcade mode in sc2 and type in marine split challenge. :-).

When i play T ... and i have to go against a Z i get completely murdered by their bling play .... i just can't split good enough smile.gif

On NA definatelly , but in EU it always seem's to be empty , and why are all my TvZ's so damn stressfull , i don't even stress that much when i play against lolvoids. Have to be super reactive against terran. Bloody 42 minutes of cat n mouse , and it took twice as much resources to kill him well he gave up probably because he was pretty much mined out while i had some income left

Zerus prime is still my most successful map and i really like it. I often go 3 hatch before pool vs toss , quick third against terran , while i like to do nydus - hydra/roach vs other Z there
