Terran Team Game Strategy : Marines and Tanks

     This is my current Terran build for team-based play, and it is generally what is expected amongst other Terrans unless you scout otherwise. Instead of using gas to get mauraders, stimpack, concussive shells, and medivacs for MMM bio you spend the gas on tanks and the excess minerals on marines.

     For this build, you will have two barracks with no attachments in the early game. You get a refinery after your first barracks and build a factory after you get 100 gas. Then build tech labs for both factories, research siege mode upgrade and start tank production. Once you have extra gas you can start building reactors on your barracks to build marines twice as fast. Tanks are very gas heavy, so your excess minerals will be used on marines. The combination of tanks in siege mode and marines surrounding them make it difficult for melee or air to attack this army since the marines will handle anything air or up close while the tanks destroy any ground forces within range. I think the siege tank is the best ground unit for terran. You can defend from almost any ground attack with well placed siege tanks and cover your team mates. The siege tank falls short on mobility considering how in order for siege tanks to be effective they must be in siege mode and cant move. That's where your team comes in and helps with the mobility with blink stalkers or mutalisks to help get to a position quickly where your tanks cant get to in time.

Did he just disconnect?

This is a pretty unusual strat and it depends on how gullible your opponent is. At the start of the match you are going to want to load all your SCVs into your Command Center. Then, lift off and fly your Command Center out into space where it can't be seen. This has to be done before you're scouted.

During the Command Center's perilous flight, send a message to your opponent along the lines of "Proxy Server Error 7465532: accidental disconnect." Then keep your fingers crossed. When your opponent's scout arrives at your base and looks around, he'll hopefully quit out of confusion.This will catch the newer players and might make them leave thinking that you disconnected and hes playing by himself. This is probably one of the funniest strategies you can do and the easiest as it really involves no skill at all. Good luck getting this to work on anything higher than the bottom of the bronze league though.

Worst strategy ever, or the best?

Starcraft 2 E Sports

Starcraft Brood War was one of the biggest games of all time in Korea. In fact, Starcraft may be the biggest in South Korea than any other country. The country has two television channels dedicated to e-Sports. Currently, one of the biggest tournaments is the Global Starcraft 2 League (GSL). The GSL on is the place to check out if you are interested in watching the top pro gamers duke it out head to head for a cash prize.Game broadcasting is going to change. The high level of StarCraft play in South Korea and its abundance of broadcast games has resulted in a community of English game commentators.
