If you're going bio, pre-split even if you don't see them coming. If you're going Marine/Tank/Medivac, try not siege up off creep and target fire infestors with your tanks if they come in range. Pre-split your marines and if you have the APM to do it, split your medivacs too.
It's generally not a good idea to have anything in clumps when you are going to engage the zerg. You split against banelings when you see them, but you have to take the precaution vs infestors.
Ok so how do you focus fire on infestors with tanks?
Select your tanks and right click on one infestor after another?
But that's suboptimal isn't it? Because you might have say 5 tanks hitting one infestor, but you only really need 2.
And how to do this when they are out of range? They tend to run up, fungal and back off...
Please explain the precise mechanics of this.
Select all of your tanks, press shift + a, and click on any infestors that come in range. Same for banelings. Always prioritize the infestors/banelings in clumps over the lone ones.
Besides actual unit counters, getting the infestors out of position is key. Easier said than done obviously, but if you watch pro games, that's one of the reasons they dance around so much. Neither side wants to engage in a battle they will lose or that will be an even exchange, so you dance and dance until someone messes up and destroy the army or the infestors.
Other than that, refer to what everyone else said with the tanks and splitting.
hey, a tip for you is,
I wouldn't trust some of the replies over this forum... people here are usually diamond or lower.. but everyone has their own opinion and we should respect..
the proper counter for fungal is tons of medivac and pre-splitting...
some marauders at the front help too, chasing the infestors, while they tank damage from lings and banelings...
an marauder getting healed tanks a lot of zerglings, while your marines kills everything and get healed by medivacs from the damage of fungal growth...
marine + medivac > infestorling
but if the game gets too macro for the zerg, u have to add some tanks to deal with the mass banelings....
