Anything is really easy to "transition" to if you're willing to put in the effort to become better and understand mechanics, strategy and your specific races greatness/weakness.

are there any custom games yet?

the very reason why i have been playing my worst race exclusively, terran. found a strat i like and it works fine. the 1-1-1 is so flexible but i usually go 2-1-1 to start then add as necessary

Been playing SC2 on my cousin's computer lately, but they need to release the other 2/3 of the game! I enjoy playing multiplayer as much as campaign so can't wait til they have a release date for the other two games.

GSL matches are insane.

SKSS(tester) vs JSL match was alone worth the 20 dollars.

Starcraft runs so slow on my computer.
What's a good video card that lets it run smoothly on low or medium settings under $150?

Starcraft ll HB Tournament
I'm pretty sure there are enough avid players to throw one. Any of you guys down? We can construct the brackets according to league and rank. The prize would be free rep from the loser.>smhsmokeyfacesmokeyface

Im 5-39, am I good?
Sep 23, 2010 @ 08:11
lol, u need to watch some streams to get some builds if thats ur record.

so now i have 1050+ pts in ladder for 1v1, been stuck in platinum and been #1 for the past 2 weeks and i only play diamond ppl or #1 platinum ppl..... wtf blizzard, let me move up, im more than 100 pts ahead of everyone in my league.
Sep 23, 2010 @ 09:54
Yeah, I don't even get their ranking system. I think its based off how many wins you have since losses don't really effect your ranking that much. I'm platinum too and it seems like most of the diamond players I've played have played a shitload of games like 100-200+.

some1 help me with 1/1/1 build? i suck LOL.
Oct 03, 2010 @ 10:25
1-1-1 build has many variations nowadays. The most common and popular one is

9 depot
11 barrack
13 gas
15 orbital

You're pumping marines as the gas for factory is coming up, building a factory while pumping marines.
At this point a 5 roach rush can occur, so you can build one tank, no siege mode + pumping marines.

Once you have the gas again to build a starport, make sure youre building a tech lab on your factory and just lift up and switch it with the starport and begin making banshee/viking depending on your hard counter/race.

This all depends on what you scout, if youre just doing a blind 1-1-1 it'll most likely fail unless you scout void rays or any rushes. After the scout just counter accordingly.

The weakest part of this build is factory to starport as protoss (4-gates) and zerg (baneling bust+more than 5 roaches) will do a lot of damage causing you to be on the defensive or lose.

1-1-1 you can do whatever you want, just remember if youre cutting SCVs youre playing an all-in game and probably dont plan to expand, but if youre forseeing a longer game continue to make scvs so you have enough to transfer to your natural.

Good luck and play around with different units for the 1-1-1 as what I have said is the most common build, you can even forgo the tank and get a hellion to harass and get banshee to follow up.

Scout, counter, win.

Oct 03, 2010 @ 21:03
haha, i suck at harassing. most i've ever done was basically just build a refinery at my enemies natural (protoss).

any tips against zerg? i've been talkin so much shit to my friend for like months (zerg). i usually do 1 rack fe, 3m. but i heard that zerg is weaker against mech and fast expanding against zerg is bad.
Oct 04, 2010 @ 08:30
best strat as Terran vs Toss is to go Goliath.... I usually start with the normal 1-1-1 build except instead of making the tank, i build the armory and pump out a helion. also build a second rax. once the armory is done, i then build the starport and since u have the gas, i build my first goliath. then i drop the goliath in the mineral field of the toss, kill as many before any attacking units come, then go to their exp and do the same. its not a hard strat to do.

Dec 17, 2010 @ 12:25
i played last night for the first time. i went 3-1, only reason i lost the one was because a zerg player did a weird strat. took two drones and took both my gas. i didnt respond correctly, shoulda went mass marines at that point and didnt.

Who is still playing this?

I play fairly regularly. I'm 1st place in my silver league, but they haven't promoted me to gold yet. I beat 5 gold league players in a row tonight and still didn't get promoted, so I don't know what else I have to do.

I'm open to playing, if anyone wants to. I can't remember my ID number, so post yours if you want to play some time and I'll add you and message you.

i'm the best mayne, i deed it

Jan 03, 2011 @ 14:34
I still play reg. Try to get at least one game in a day. I'm rank plat in every league. Gotta post my info....
