Ultralisks should be 2 shotting marines

In terms of the skill gap, Diamond and Masters are night and day different. What evidence are you using to support your claim?

Why?

Because they did in BW?
Marines had 40 hp instead of 45(+10).
Ultralisks did a bit more damage per attack, but didn't have splash.

Because they are gargantuan and their blades clearly go through the Marines slicing them in half?
Unit sizes are not to scale. An Ultralisk would be far larger compared with a Marine than it appears in game. But that also means we can't trust unit numbers are to scale, so a single Marine might actually represent ten or fifty.

I'm hearing that a mid Masters player could do to a high Diamond what I can do to a Bronze.

Ultras should probably be able to table flip siege tanks and knock over collosus as well. Just sayin'.

good marine splits vs ultralisks makes them bad and not cost effective gotta add infestors to make them work but if hes really good at splits be sure to hit that gg button


No terran in diamond league on NA is very good at splitting
THAT SIR is a lie! I played a guy with the name Microbot and his splits were better then mvps! sure all his marines died but i was wasting more mins and gas to kill them cause they were so split apart, zerg has nothing that beats perfect splits

Yeah they may be more your own inadequacies. I figure that I can reliably tell the difference of skill between people about a half bracket away. After that it gets really hard to tell how much better someone is. I can say this. When I was in gold there was a very really difference between someone that was top 8 platinum and someone that was bottom 25 platinum. Now that I'm playing diamonds there's a real big difference between bottom 50 diamond, 49-25 diamond, and top 25 diamond. I can only imagine how much better the players get.

I mean look at this way. So on an average game you make 100 mistakes. To fix one mistake out of the 100 is easy, but it only fixes 1% of your game. However if you only make, on average, 1 mistake a game then to not make 1 mistake is 100 times harder. Conversely if we say that a game was lost due to 1 mistake then the player that makes 100 mistakes has a higher chance to win because they only have to fix 1 of their 100 mistakes while the player that cannot make any mistake has it much harder.

They're already really good against marines. Just sayin...


a single unupgraded marine with 1 medivac can kill a 3/3 ultralisk. Just sayin...

I sincerely disagree.. unless you are talking about the ultra-low master who loses one game every season and wont be demoted until 2018.

I just watched a video of a mid-masters terran player rolling diamond zergs with pure reaper and reaper marine with no medivacs. It was lol-icious, especially after one of the Zerg players went for a base kill and the Terran just ran in with the reapers and killed all of the drones, Zerg was like, "Hey, where are my Drones?".
