    Has anyone tried any of the cookie cutter strats that everyone talks about?

    I think Terran is MMM which is Marine Marauders and Medivacs? I've also heard something about Mech but haven't figured out the exact strat yet.

    Toss I think was something along the lines of building Gateways right by their base and harassing them with zealots or teching up as fast as possible to build warprays and wrecking shit.

    I've yet to see any Zerg strats most of what I've seen were more along the lines of outlasting the previous ones that I saw.

    This was also quite a while ago when I was entertaining the idea of playing online. After watching some video's I decided my micro management skills aren't up to par.

    yeah, most of those strategies are things that you kinda fall into if you play multiplayer enough, the videos really just help by showing you the fastest, most efficient ways of doing things. don't worry about your micro skills, the only way to get better at it is by playing against other people. watching videos is fun and helps some, though, i think.

    I'm pretty sure that's the guy I was watching. Really helpful explaining what he was doing although watching his mouse movements kind of hurts my dome.

    the mouse movement in his videos is just him clicking around and pointing at things while he does commentary, replays don't show the actual pointers of the players. i was confused about that at first, too.

    We should develop a team strategy...We can function as a coherent unit in 2v2, 3v3, and 4v4 and the class act SC fighting battalion will be unstoppable

    Me and Kyle have been faring really well against other 2 player teams. We basically use the same strategy every time, but it's getting more and more polished as we go.

    I'm protoss and he's zerg. He goes for the earliest rush he can (building a spawning pool even before his next drone) and attacks while I don't even build a gateway until I have about 15 or so probes. A lot of times after Kyle rushes one of the teammates will just leave. I usually go for either Stalkers or straight to void rays, depending on how well Kyle's rush went (if it went well, I take the longer route and go for rays). After getting rushed their weakened while I've spent my early game building up a massive income for the rest of the game and usually sky rocket ahead of everyone else on the map.

    You rush with zerglings?

    Also do you share income or is it separate still?

    A lot of people rush Zergling. I like the Protoss void ray build up. Heck, you can even build up a bunch of Phoenixes and just go pick up all their builders and just zap them away while Zergy is rushing.

    It's still separate, but after the first 5 minutes of the game is over, you can send resources back and forth.

    man, I saw this SICK 4v4 where two guys massed Pheonixes and did exactly this. they can't attack buildings, so you'll need something else to finish the job, but against any ground units it'll dominate.

    you'd have to answer with mass area-affect attacks, I guess. Vikings?

    So you don't build your 6th drone you just build up to get a spawning pool then pump out drones and lings? I'm kind of confused maybe I'm reading it wrong.

    no, that's right. you mine with the drones you start with, and you wait until you have 200 min and then you immediately build spawning pool. in the time it takes to build the spawning pool you'll be able to create two more drones, and then when the spawning pool is finished you'll have enough larva and enough min to immediately spawn three sets of two zerglings and you send them straight to the enemy base. it works extremely well on a smaller map or against beginner players, but you have to be ready to defend your base with a spine crawler or two while you create your queen, start getting gas, fast expand, etc.

    Has anyone attempted the economy achievements? I cannot get the zerg or the terran one which is make x amount of zerglings or marines in x amount of time. I counted and watched my time and I achieved both of these but didn't get the achievement for it... any one else have any luck?
