So you want to learn the correct Terran units to counter with? In this guide I will show you the basics of countering as a Terran game player when playing against Zerg or Protoss players. This a general guide and is meant as an overview of the Terran counter units.

First we will talk about playing against a Zerg player. Countering early Zergling attacks as well as the other different units they can trough at you. The correct Terran counter unit for this attack is the hellion as it will do very good damage to groups of ground units like the zergling. Another attack the Zerg likes to use is the roach and hydro combo. The best Terran counter unit for this is the tank and thor combo as they will simply destroy the Zerg attack. The last thing a Zerg player might try is the mutalisk attack in which case you should just make marines and if you have a starport build some Viking units.

When playing against a Protoss player the first thing you should look for the is zealot and stalker combo. A good Terran unit counter for this is again the tank and thor combo, just make sure you have a few marines in front to protect the tanks. The Protoss player may try using colossus or immortals. To take out colossus just use thors as the colossus is not good at doing damage to large units. To destroy the immortals you will need to use marines and maybe some hellions, keep your tanks and thors away from the immortal as it is desgined to take down large units. Lastly he may try to use void rays and the perfect Terran counter unit for that is your vikings. Just build a few and you should have no trouble taking the void rays out.

If you learn these Terran counter units you should have no trouble beating even a diamond ladder Protoss or Zerg player!

Anyways, good luck to all of you and I hope to see you on BattleNet!

Statcraft 2 Tip: Playing Zerg on Battlenet

July 11, 2010
By admin

So you are considering playing Zerg in Starcraft 2? There are certainly a few things you should get to know first, each race has it’s strengths and weaknesses and I’m going to show you what is good and what is not so good about playing Zerg so you can make an educated choice when choosing your race.
Zerg is a very fun race to play because they are designed to be a mass-producing type of race. Unlike Protoss and Terran a Zerg player needs to have a constant stream of units being produced and sent into battle. The Terran and Protoss races are all about making the best units to counter whatever they are fighting. Zerg is like this as well but not to the degree that Terran and Protoss are. We only have a few selections when it comes to units but we are setup to pump out units much faster. Of course this requires more minerals and gas then the other races so a Zerg player must be expand early and often in a game which makes it more complicated and chaotic then with the other races.
Zerg has a weakness defending against an air attack early on in the game so this has caused us problems on battlenet recently but there are things we can do to help with this. We also have weaker air attack units then the other races. Mutalisks are good at scouting but do poorly in battles against good anti air units so we mainly use ground units for the large attacks.
Overall I love playing Zerg but they are hard to learn and you must good at managing the chaos which is just part of playing the Zerg. However, if you get the hang of playing them is very rewarding as there is no better feeling the sending your mass hydralisks and roaches to dominate your opponent!

As the release date nears, and the beta become more wide spread, it is becoming more important to learn each of the player’s weaknesses.

StarCraft 2 Tip: Zerg vs Protoss Tactics that Work!

July 9, 2010
By rbeach

Playing against a good Zerg player can be difficult against any of the other players. However, with the right units a Protoss player can learn to beat the Zerg down. The key to winning this type of game is know what stragity the Zerg player is using. Scouting becomes the most important think you can do in the beginning of the game. You need to know what units they are going to send at you, so I would recommend getting an observer pretty early on in the game. If he is making a lot of zerglings you need to build a colossus or 2 really fast and they will make short work of the zerglings. You also need to make sure you have a few zealots and stalkers to defend the colossus from attacks. If he is using a lot of roaches and hydralisks then you should build immortals as they do very well against roaches and hydras. If he is dumb enough to try and attack you with mutalisks then just build up a bunch of stalkers and you should have no trouble taking them out. Those 3 are the main attacks that a good Zerg player with use against you. So you see winning this type of game is pretty straightforward.

Of course there is one other major option that a Zerg player can use and that is building infestors. A good Zerg player with infestors can be a big problem for us so keep an eye out for these and if you see them coming the smartest thing to do is build some air units such as void rays or phoenix to handle the infestors from the air. If you follow this guide and learn the strenghts and weaknesses of your units then beating even a very good Zerg player can be a breeze. Good luck and I hope to see you on battlenet soon!

StarCraft 2 Tips: Getting Ready for The Zerging Rush!

July 9, 2010
By rbeach

The Zerg are more dangerous than ever this time around. Every time we start a game against a Zerg, the very first thing you need to be ready for is the zergling rush. This nasty speed upgraded zergling rush can wipe you out in the first moments of any battle. A good Zerg player can win the game by just using zerglings and banelings. This guide will show you how to be ready for and defeat this type of attack.

The great Zerg players on bnet right now have learned how to effectively use zerglings to harass us and run by our army to take out our suvs. This can be a devastating blow to our economy which will in turn cause us to fall behind in mineral gathering and cost us the game. One thing we can do of course is use supply depots to block off the entrance to our base but this will not stop a good Zerg player as they can use banelings to blow through the supply depots very quickly and run in with the speedlings.

The answer is to build hellions. Hellions are excellent at wiping out groups of zerglings and they move just as fast as the zerglings do so you will be able to keep up with them. Of course to make hellions so early in the game you will need to build a factory pretty quickly and start creating them out as soon as you know the Zerg player is using a lot of zerglings and banelings. If you use this method against a zergling attack you will have no problem taking out even an excellent Zerg player.
