    It's hard for me to imagine a more high-pressure situation than standing in front of an audience, by yourself, for the purpose of amusing them.

    I sleep with a mouthguard because I grind my teeth otherwise. In my dream tonight no one could understand what I was saying because I had the mouthguard in my mouth and I couldn't take it out.

    I'm probably going to get one from the dentist.

    But my main problem is that I grind my teeth during stress, so most shifts at work, I'm grinding my teeth the whole time.

    Yuck

    Try to remember to place the tip of your tongue (and hold it there during the stress) at the roof of your mouth, just where your top teeth meet the gums. It prevents you from grinding your teeth. Eventually, you just sort of learn to do it unconsciously all the time or at least whenever stressed. You could also just bit down on your tongue in a pinch.

    Terran has marines and marauders which can't really be grouped together because of stim, hellions and/or tanks, medivacs and/or vikings, all with different movement speeds and attack prioritization.

    I've lost lots of medivacs because of it, accidentally stimmed plenty of units pointlessly.

    and sieged tanks that weren't yet near the battle.

    Terran does seem to require more micro than you'd think.
    Maybe that's why i see a lot of M&M&M balls.

    People just go "fuck it" and Attack move everything at once.

    heh, yeah with an mmm ball it's pretty straightforward besides making sure to keep the medivacs back

    add in superfast helions or superslow tanks and you start to have issues.

    and the worst is the TvT tank/viking micro for vision. haaaaate that shit.

    so usually I don't bring tanks and outnumber his vikings to death and then banshee the tanks to death. this has worked recently.


    True, I've seen a lot of games where a Terran is doing the slow leapfrogging across the map, it's all going well then something moves out of position a little bit and all of a sudden there's a pile of scrap where the tanks used to be and the bioball is getting torn to shreds.

    Still, i like to play Terran occasionally, it's still pretty fun.

    It'll seem weird and you'll think you're looking silly doing it, but it's not a noticeable act to anyone who isn't really looking for it. And it works. My dentist suggested it because while I don't usually grind my teeth, I do sort of clench my jaw a lot (without the teeth touching) and this helps with that (to at least ensure the teeth don't touch). Eventually you'll get used to doing it all the time or whenever you may need it and it really does help.

    The creep mechanic is fun. It's just the spawn larva mechanic is basically "Every X seconds click a button or you are playing sub-optimally" with chrono boost there is strategy to saving it up or using it on different buildings at different times etc. With the orbital command sometimes its smart to store energy and theres different powers you can use from that energy source that are all very useful, etc.

    Spawn larva is just the boring (but still good) mechanic by comparison.
