Surprisngly, I agree with this Having said that, I think mutas are also needed to focus down colossi if possible, otherwise, roach/hydra would suffice

Mutas, no.

Corruptors, yes.

Man, I have always underestimated the Zealot. Been playing Protoss recently (and having the most success with them)

I'm pretty sure my last opponent rage quitted. Me and a friend were playing 2v2 (bronze). Just kept using the warp prism to zealot drop into his mineral lines.

Won 7 games in a row tonight, a fair few against gold and plat guys, but we are still in bronze Ah well, I learnt a lot tonight and found that speed Zealot + Colassi with a few sentries just pulls apart the terran MM ball.

Also got used to controlling the battle field to my advantage with sentries. Holding back power units for my colassi to pick off while my zealots rip everything on the other side to pieces. Obviously pretty amateur stuff to most on here but I enjoyed

It is SOOO fun to feedback ghosts with full mana. The animation is great.

Upgraded zealots are soooo good.

If Z is going mutas, there's no need for P to go colossus.

Chargelots are great especially late game since money piles up then and you can dump all your minerals into them. Colossi are also pretty good and brutal units as well. Have a look at the replay I posted a couple of pages back, you'll see what I mean

As for MMM, well against P, you should have more marauders. If your opponent's MMM was mostly marine based then those get slaughtered easily against colossi but if he made mostly marauders, then with some kiting(assuming you missed some ff, etc....) he would've taken it. Don't forget the zealots+colossi can't hit air so that combo is very susceptible to air to ground units such as banshees, etc....

Ouch...had one on my leg when I was a teenager, took like a week to get rid of it as puss was being constantly leaking out if it, pushed some cotton inside the wound with hydrogen peroxide and it healed...left a bad bad scar tho...

OT: I'm loving my 6950 and my 2 new Asus VE247's LED monitors~ can't wait to play all Ultra on SC2...provided my Athlon II x4 630 @ 3.5ghz can handle it XD

Good question, not sure it can XD Up for a game?

Edit: I believe I have devised the perfect way to improve someone's SCII skills:
Play WC3 for the micro component, SCI for the macro XD
