I think i am ok to go into Plat, but i am probably mid to lower ranks in plat.

A lot of people just building the typical mmm / protoss timing push, then get brain freeze when i counter correctly / push early or expand across the map.

I really hate how Marauders are the "I Win" Unit in this game and Protoss "I Win" race.

I'm getting real sick of the Zerg rush noobs out there. No matter how fast I build or which race I play (I hate playing as Zerg anyway), I always get raped with Zerglings. I've also blocked my entrances off using buildings and it still doesn't work. WTF Blizz?

I switched from playing Protoss all the time to Terran and I'm getting beat pretty bad. It seems like I play guys who want to build 20 of everything, then attack. I try to attack when I get the first 2 or 3 Zealots or Marines but they fail quick. I'll occasionally get someone who doesn't build as fast as me and I can beat them pretty easily.

I've also ran into at least 5 games where the opponent has some air units and I'm out of resources. Oh and all of my air units are dead. All I have are Maraduers or something that can't attack air units.

Look at the build orders from platinum or some website, write it down and practice on the computer the first few minutes. Nothing else you can do.

Six,

I play Protoss so I can't really help you play Terran, but a few things you should know.

If your playing a Zerg it's imperative you send out a probe-scout to see want he's doing. If he only has six or seven drones mining minerals and a spawning pool coming out - you can bet he's gonna six pool rush. If this is the case get a gateway up and chrono boost a zealot. Also consider putting a forge down and building a cannon. Cannon + 1 zealot = 6 pool owned. Position your zealot at the narrow entrance to the choke you made with your buildings and tell him to hold ground. And if the Zerg fails a six pool he's in a really bad position. Chrono boost some more zealots and rape his base.

Just got done playing a TvZ game and I won. He tried to rush but luckily I had 2-3 marines in a bunker and it took care of the problem. He didn't push the rush so I took his butt out with Reapers. I love Reapers, cool units.

lol who does 6 pool rushes ><....i hate all in strats.

the one thing terran need to watch out for is bane ling bust with speedlings then to muta/hydra.

Terran build MMM Ball should still get you to platinum pretty easy, its ridiculously strong against every race

if zerg fails the 6 pool rush, there is no coming back from it.

stim marines will rip air up
stim marauders will destroy anything in the ground and destroy buildings / defensive structures in 1 second
med will counter the hp loss by stim..

u can faceroll all the way to platinum with that start, so i suggest you start working on the mmm ball strat.

It doesn't work against better players, but against people who try to tech fast and don't bother to build an army it's a great way of getting an early win.

hence...y i said you can facerolll upto platinum, after that you will need good micro/macro and timing.

mmm ball is very powerful and you see it a lot still used by the pro's, it still works in the top platinum as well.

people will usually do like a reaper rush or thorship then eventually fall back/push with mmm
