    I build lots of mans

    But I tend to float money to build mans

    Which I promptly give to an overeager zerg teammate so he can flood the map with mans

    Please, explain what kind of mans are best to build for someone who has very minimal knowledge of anything StarCraft

    I was playing Terran in the trial. It was okay. In the handful of times I played StarCraft 1 I only every played Protoss. I was told that Protoss is pretty different in this game though.

    For serial though, the key to being decent at Starcraft is realizing it's an economy based rts that involves a lot of multitasking

    You want to be raking in as much money as possible and spending it all immediately without waste. Doing this involves:

    -Always building workers. One base needs 22-30 workers, then you want even more so that you can saturate an expansion as soon as you get one

    -Don't queue units. Queing units is wasted money, as it takes you cash without giving you anything. If money's coming in faster than you can spend it without queing, you need more production facilities.

    -Don't build building unless you intend to use them. I've seen terrans build 5 supply depots before they hit 20 food. why!? Those could have been marines!

    -Keep your money as low as possible. Unspent money is money that could be units on the field by now

    Which is why sometimes I build a supply depot earlier than later

    Mainly because I'm dumb and I can't remember how much shit is being built

    But I'm learning some things like "oh hey I could build a reactor on that factory to have even MORE marines

    Or MORE medivacs

    being supply blocked is like when you cum too many times in one day and your balls have no power to produce more sperms, so you have to drink lots of milk to make more sperms so you can ejaculate more times in a day

    In Bitbybitprime's (the guy that always does scv all ins) game in the round of 16 artosis kept going "let's see what sort of all-in he does this game" "it's going to be a tech to ravens all in" or "expanding before he all-ins"
    It was great, mostly because he was always right.

    Ah that wasn't so bad. It was about on par with how terrible the WoL and SC1 story were.

    And just about every RTS story except Myth.

    Man I mean that sort of makes sense but there's nothing concerning the overall plot arc concerning the main baddies and you'd think they'd have it end on some sort of cliffhanger or something.

    I think I did the same thing with SC2 I do with all strategy games...I play it a ton at first, get pretty good, and then quit cold turkey. It's a proven cycle.

    star battle is a pretty sweet multiplayer custom map

    imagine controlling a Star Destroyer in a space battle with all the tiny (AI controlled) X-Wings and TIE fighters zipping around

    you have to maneuver to take out other capital ships and the enemy base


    don't play it until after finals
