Please feel free to add your own tips.
Build lots of workers and send them to mine…place 1 worker on each blue mineral thing
when you run out of blue mineral things, send your wokers to other locations...even if
you don’t have a base there. This ensures you get lots of minerals and your minerals at home don’t run out. Many say, put 3 on 1, but why? When there are so many minerals…dope.
Constantly explore the map...send abt 5-6 workers out on waypoints to all bases.
Only do this when you have around 8 workers, you don’t want no income when you scout... duh. Also doing this early means you can scare yr opp, imagine his face when 5 workers come into his base. Make yr 5 workers mine opponents minerals so that the exploration trip at least brought in money. As Zerg, send your ovis everywhere, they may be slow but bcoz they in the air they cant die easily. As Toss, don’t build obs, bcoz they cant be seen, you want your enemy to constantly stress and think he is under attack. As terran dont build mules, just save your energy for constant scanning, its such a big cheat. Many say explore with 1 worker on 9 population, but how can one worker scout an entire map properly…dope.
Don’t give up…never say die...if it looks like you are definitely losing…keep playing…stay in the game annoyingly for as long as you can…that way when your opp faces you again…he may just quit immediately. Most peeps just quit too easily.
Keep harassing…don’t stop attacking yr opponent if you have lost all yr military…keep sending workers, you should have lots of them….this way your opponent is always defending / on the backfoot and about to trip. Also, talk to your opp the whole match causing distraction / frustration / anger. Most peeps want to teach you to turtle and play a boring game.
Map control…Keep running your military units all over the map…the more they run the more their speed experience increases and they run faster.
APM…get your actions per minute up to 200 by clicking on everything like crazy…when yr opp watches the replay he will think he beat a pro…and keep his bad habbits. Always explode the wildlife around you by clicking on them repeatedly.
Focus build…practice building 1 unit in abundance, that way you will get very good with that specific unit and only be spending minerals on it…while your opp is spendng / wasting lots of money and time on building many xtra buildings and stuff for a variety of units.
Macro…Learn how to manage more then one base at the same time….ask yr opp to wait b4 he attacks you, like the popular 15 minute rule so that you can practice this. If not, just build yourself in with your buildings, all races have transport ships to carry yr troops out.
Oh..and keep building workers, max out the queue's for all units…this is like a cheat that the Zerg don’t have.
Micro…understand that it is possible to win a battle with a few units….thus it is more important for you to manage a small group of units when attacking then to try attack and mine at the same time. Many would have you believe the opposite…dope.
Watch replays…You must understand that watching pro replays doesn’t help as much as replays from yr own leagues. Pros get money in tournaments and its viewed on tv...they thus put on more of a ''show''
for the audience...like actors.
General tips for Terran:
Don’t waste money with defenses as your buildings can just fly away
Marines and Vikings are your best units bcoz they are cheap and attack air and ground
Don’t waste money on upgrading, all your units already have a huge bonus in that they are ranged.
Don’t research siege tanks bcoz then you cant move them into battle.
Don’t research stim pack, bcoz then you force yourself to research and build medivacs.
General tips for Zerg:
Build lots of queens. Don’t waste their energy on larvae (it spawns automatically…duh), rather creep spread like crazy. The creep causes your units to move xtra fast and does small damage to enemy units on it.
Keep your spine and spore crawlers unburrowed, so that when the enemy attacks you can place them in key positions.
Learn from the Russians…namely…keep running your re-enforcements at your opp until
you wear down his bigger army.
If you have lots of bases and workers like I have advised above, you must try tech straight to
broodlords (your best unit)…wait for your opp to attack…destroy him by using your home base flanking advantages and then do a quick counter attack wth the broods (this works best on big maps).
General tips for Protoss:
Never play as protoss, they suck, even patches cant help them! They need to be re-invented!
so sad as they were decent in BW.
If after these tips you still suck, then I propose you wait for a lan in yr area and memorise some cheats.
