Lol I'm watching this random stream and the streamer is playing against Darrenc, who is the winner of OCN's tournament IIRC (it's Oktoberfest I think).

Like any other discussion about SC-2 this thread will eventually lead to the fact that terran is still OP (even after 1.1.2)

xD

Just kidding, but not about terran being OP

They're not so much op but easy to play as well as have more options of early harass to t3 units.

Pretty much true. EMP is amazing against P units and marauders with concussive shells are great at kiting zealots and decent enough against stalkers. Vikings have pretty long range with good damage and thors are their all in one unit having the longest air range in the game(10 I believe). I think they are well rounded, likewise P is great with their units. FF and GS are great if used properly and the colossus along with zealot+stalkers makes a great combo. Personally, I think T and P are great as is, although, I dislike the supply depot before barracks idea. The only issue I have with zerg is the fact that we have no T1 or T1.5 aa units which means that I must tech to hydras or mutalisks or my only other option is to lay down spore crawlers. Unfortunately, I get my chamber rather late since I concentrate on getting my exp up and making some d incase of an early push(these have cost me games) and I've had games where I lost just because my opponent went straight for a banshee or void rays and I built my spore crawlers too late or didn't tech fast enough. Despite what people say, the queen loses 1vs1 to a banshee, so, if you have only queen, it's pretty much GG unless they attacked your exp giving you the time to build crawlers

Terran's not OP anymore. Zerg is now.

I think rax after depot was a really good change. Terran is still safe against any rushes because of wall and you don't get reapers or marauders in your base before you have any units out. People were complaining about it since the beta. I met a guy in a custom game who is in ~1500 diamond and he admitted he got there by going 7rax reaper in every game. Since the patch he needs to practice to actually learn how to play lol.

The only thing I find a bit ridiculous is when you look at the score screen and there's a workers count, and you made like 78 workers while terran had, say, 45 through the whole game, but the amount of resources gathered is pretty much equal. This and planetary fortress.

very interesting use of html5. Click on the various images on top to select a different scene. Then mouse over the slider thing in the middle of the larger image, and move it left and right. It shows you the image with max details vs lowest details of the game. Very nifty use of it!

lol, Jk of course, but, nope I think all the races are pretty balanced aside from the no AA in the early game for zerg. I'm not soo sure about the rax thing though. I mean what if the opponent 6 pools, I would assume you would get a barrack and a depot up, however, will you get the next one in time? I don't really know, since, I don't play much T or P. 1500 diamond on just reapers, lol, they are pretty powerful but that explains why Blizzard nerfed them. As to the worker thing, TBH, I always have around the same number of workers as my opponent, mostly because I saturate my base and use my exp mostly for gas, but, I'm working on it

That's because we can't chrono boost / build multiple drones at once. Terran will almost always be down on SCV's..which is why mule sniping or forcing scans is hella important.

Yep. That's cool though .






Speaking of easy to play: Protoss.

But I have to say I do think Z is the strongest currently. Could be wrong though.
