are you still playing starcraft? i really believe that this is the best strategy game ever. If you are still playing this game who is your favorite race and why? What are your strategies in playing the game.

I have no fave race since Terran, Zerg, and Protoss got pros and cons. Terran good at their millitary and specially their air unit. Also they got medic unit (Broodwars), and most building can be moved. But this race is bad for solo mission (mission without need to mine mineral and gas), this race depend alot from their building. Zerg good at unit cost, they can build unit with low mineral and gas, and can be build alot of number to mob your enemy. Their Queen can kill any ground unit in a single blow even you activate "Power Over whelming". Zerg Guardian also dangerous because attacking ground unit real fast in a long range. But this race, if used for attacking without double the number of their unit from their enemy (specially Protoss), this race will wipe out real fast. Protoss are good at technology, also they got shield and hard to be killed (my goliath was blown up by a zealot, can you believe that?) Their Detector is in cloaking mode, Dark Templar can kill most enemy who attacking without their detector, Dark Archon can steal enemy unit (steal 2 Zerg lurker and put it behind Photon cannon, no ground unit can pass your guard). But the thing i hate most from this race is, their warp gate are taken too long to send the building. Also, cost for building an unit is the most skyhigh. But if i need to choose, i choose Terran, why? Because this unit is balance, unit cost not too cheap but not too expensive also. And don't forget, they got NUCLEAR BOMB.

Ya, i like to use terran as well. In fact marine is very powerful troops at early stage (you are doomed if Protoss are allowed to develope to later stage). 20+ of them can take down a lot of enemy, especially with stim pack. In the Broodwar expansion pack, they are even powerful, could be healed by medics continuously and can use stim pack without limit. I usually bring 3 medics with 10+ marines to attack the other base in early base and eliminate the resource miners. :)

Starcraft is an interesting game, not my favourite though as I was having hard time to master it, not just this game but most Blizzard's RTS. I'm quite fond of using Zerg. I think Zerg is quite versatile and interesting to use. One problem with them is their defensive buildings are weak. But that was until the expansion of Brood War, ground defense has been strengthen with Lurker, and these guys are deadly. Another troublesome thing is the multifunction of Overlord. That's your detector, your housing, your transport, and that thing can't even attack! :D

well about the overlord thing yes i think that is really an advantage for zergs i thnk you just have to play a lot to master the game you should try protoss i think protoss is easy to use and play. and they are strong and fast too. as for the zerg they are really good in rush attack they are really known for that, so i suggest that you should rush the game if you are zerg. p.s. one more advantage of overlord it does not use space unlike supply depot of terran which is very space consuming right

Both of you are right. But the most exciting feature of starcraft is every race and every unit has it's strong and weak point. Means you will never win easily with a single type of units or race. It depends on your combination of units and paired with the best attack/defence tactic/strategy. I used to play it a lot when i was in college time and now i play warcraft. Blizzard game never failed me :) From Diablo to Warcraft :) Overlord is really good in transporting troops into the center of enemy base. I used to attack with 20+ overlords (some are empty decoil to feed enemy missiles) and dropped all my troops (40~60 units) into enemy base and create havoc there :)

Starcraft is an excellent game, very old to. I no longer played it, but when I did the Zerg and Terran were the races I used. I never was extremely good, but between my friends it was a game we used to be very competitive with, betting money on who is gonna win things like that.

I still play it, and all the other old ones I have. At least I did until this computer started dying. I am planning a new build to replace this one, and that means Fat32 WinXP Pro and NO VISTA. This way all my games will be supported, even with a dual core.

I last played Starcraft like.. 4 years ago. It was call but I don't have time for it now, also there are many other new games that I'm willing to give a try based on reviews from my friends. Maybe when I'll have lotta free time I'll reinstall Starcraft, I've even forgotten the namke of the races.
