Tanks are much fun though.

On a side note, I think I'm going to quit foruming. I spend wayyyy too much time on them. However, I do think I will stick around here because I really enjoy these forums and computing. Specifically giving up on any balance issues on SCArena, TL, ect. Waste of time.. and I don't know why I keep letting myself get sucked into it.

lol, yes, but, they obviously stink against air as evidenced from my previous post I should mention that on ground, they are almost unrivalled due to their longe range and 50 damage vs. armored

Edit: Just saw your edit:
Well, TBH, I've never QQ'd on any forums about SC2. I just don't see the reason to. I mean Blizzard is going to fix the game and patch it the way they want, so, why waste my time, since, I trust that they will do their best to fix the game, so, that no race is UP or OP and this is coming from someone who was playing zerg when they were considered UP

Edit2: Just read my own edit and that's one long sentence
On a side note, I decided to stick to zerg for now until I get my P and T up to speed. I feel comfortable playing as T due to knowing good strats and the general mechanics, etc.... for the race but I'm pretty horrible at P and cringe everytime I think I'll get P when choosing random. I think my playing style is just Z since I love all the different units we have even hydras and BLs

Lol, I have the same problem. I'm supposed to be working on some projects and don't really have time to play, but I still keep just refreshing these forums and effectively wasting all the time. I gave up on TL.net some time ago. I just browse it on a daily basis to see if there are any new threads actually worth reading or streams worth watching.

Simultaneous Phoenix + Carrier is like trying to do simultaneous Immortal + Colossi. It sounds bad-ass, but the timings are horrible. There's just too many holes. Sure there are builds where people get Immortals while they wait on the Robo-Bay but once the bay is up Immortal production stops. But Pheonix' are one of those units that you constantly need to keep their count very high.

It's like what day9 says, "Oh i'm gonna do this, and if he does this, i'll do that, then he'll do this, so I'll get that. STOP and just go f*cking kill him. STOP worrying about counters and just go f*cking kill him. cause chances are his composition is weak"

Also, what a lot of Pros and Day9 say is transition and getting to the late game. People don't normally start off with carrier cause you'll most likely lose before you get to the late-game. So people go Robo-builds, or Gate-builds to survive early/mid-game.

But how well do those builds TRANSITION into Stargate tech for late-game? People go Colossi + HT for late game cause you already have the Gateways and Warp-tech. Just add the archives. It's not so simple adding Stargate+Fleet Beacon+Build Time.

Transitioning is just horrid timing.

The Day9's that come into mind are the Newbie-Tuesday talking about dealing with Colossi. @ the question section people bring up getting corruptors to deal with the Colossi, Day9 says "Yes! Corruptors would do very well against the Colossi. TOO bad there wasn't enough time. cause if you try to switch tech, you'll just lose your whole f`ing base"

An epic game with carriers. Not really what I meant, but it has carriers.

All socke games I coud find are either casted in german or don't contain carriers sadly.

Actually, they are pretty comparable to SC1 tank, as in they do similar damage to SC1, something like 100% massive, 75% med and 50% light in SC1 which is on par with SC2 light and armored damage

Transitioning can be horrid for any race excluding Z since we have to build just a single structure to produce said unit, however, getting that structure destroyed means no more said unit I do like the bolded part. My problem is that if I try to attack, I'm worried about losing all my units against a turtled opponent which means that if they counter-attack, I will almost have no units which means I'll easily lose. Of course, I can build some units before they come to my base but you get the point as in it seems to be a waste trying to attack a T or P who is turtling since you need to break that barrier and even then you are still at a choke which is a disadvantage for Z if you are using slings+roaches due to their melee and 4 range respectively
