Terran Discussion

Jul 5, 2016 Just a very simple TvZ tip. I've been watching a lot of terrans vs zergs. There's this little thing that REALLY bugs me. IF you use tanks in TvZ, Get 1 attack upgrade on ground mech, then all armor. why? 1. You will 1 shot lings, regardless of the zergs armor upgrades. 2. tanks will 3 shot roaches, regardless of the zergs armor upgrades. Having roaches take 4 shots, and/or not one shotting lings can be game changing. There's no point getting more then 1 upgrade on ground mech attack though. Armor will be better.GameDog7 Jul 5, 2016
Jul 5, 2016 Using reapers in mid and late game So I wanted to make my own unique playstyle and I decided on centering around Reapers. I usually start with an all in because going just mass reapers vs z/t/p is just silly if your not going to do early economic damage Vs zerg I do either the pf reaper rush or the ghost hellbat push Vs protoss a 3 rax reaper all in followed by a 3CC  Vs Terran a 3 rax reaper into a tank reaper viking push followed up by 3CC Now od course you cant mass reapers because thry arent really combat units however ive discovered that using reapers with tanks has great effect. For example roaches need to get on tanks to do damage however the d8 charges push units back and lets tanks get more volleys. However I find that you need to het ALOT of pfs. Reapers are kinda like mutas. You scout that the enemy is out of position and then snipe his 4th or 3rd and can easily get back to base before a counterattack. So far ive gone against lots of plays and a diamond and its working out well.  It is gimmicky obviously but nobody masses reapers so you wont get hard countered by a player who scoutsit ouWiDoW10 Jul 5, 2016
Jul 5, 2016 Vikings need a redesign I'm not talking about their stats. I couldn't care less about their stats right now. I care about how they look. They look awful. They don't look cool for high tech space stuff. They look like regular airplanes. Terrans are supposed to be high advanced technological humans not hillbillies. I mean star craft has always had some kind of weird mesh of country and technology but it's a downgrade from the wraith. And why can't we keep the units from before? We should just add new units to existing ones. There's nothing wrong with old ones like wraiths or corsairs. Those were cool. Vikings and void rays not so much. Phoenixes not much better either. Okay scouts suck so do valkyries. I applaud the new liberator even if the name sucks compared to valkyries. Okay my rant ends here now Also hellions have wheels which could break and pop so it doesn't make sense. It's a downgrade from vultures which weren't that great either. But it's like blizzard is trying to make new units while trying to forget the old ones while the old ones were just as good if not better than the new ones. Not all just some. Like the hellbat is just a combination of firebat and vulture. Cuz it transforms. Banshee plus Viking equals a wraith except a Viking is also a wraith minus the cloaking abilities plus a goliath. But its worse than the Goliath bc it's slow. And why take away lockdown from ghosts? They were perfectly fine with it. It kind of balances technological stuff like protoss and mech. They take out useless things and make it even more useless. (bc lockdown can't really be used on a lot of units) But the mother ship oh the mother ship it dies so easily. It's a mother ship but it's so weak. Like a glorified mother ship core but no power. Just cloaking ability. It's not fun to watch units die so easily. Where's the strategy? Where's the fun? I hate watching matches where they die so easily. Motherships bcs etc. I mean ultralisks are strong finally but that's only one unit. Ok I know there's a lot of ideas or rants in this one but I don't have time and I just wanted to express myself byeAlmondJoy4 Jul 5, 2016
Jul 4, 2016 Looking for coach Hi, I've recently just gotten back into Starcraft 2 and I'm looking for a coach to help me get better overall. I lost contact with my old coach back in HotS so I need another trusty companion to help me out. I have some basic knowledge of builds, macro-micro play already but there's plenty of room for improvement. NA: Dom #1460 Or you could add me on Battle.Net if you'd want; DOMinator #1284 Many thanks :)RegiShotGG0 Jul 4, 2016
Jul 4, 2016 Countering Pylon Overcharge Rush in TvP Anyone have advice for countering offensive Pylons on short air distance maps like Ulrena, Ruins of Endion and Korhal Carnage Knockout? Considering Protoss may rush with Pylons, Mothership Core and Stalkers/Adepts. Also considering the chance that this rush may be assisted by an Oracle. I'm 99% sure the Pylon rush is overpowered and unfair on these maps but I want to see if I may make any improvements on my play. I may stop playing Terran in Legacy of the Void unless there is a reliable counter-play for this Pylon cheese.IllIllIlIlIl12 Jul 4, 2016

Jun 27, 2016 Widow Mine question (how to use them) So, I jumped into my first series of games in HotS last night (lost all of them like a true bronze! lol). I'm not qq'ing, half the loses were due to poor management of some sort...crap happens. This thread is about Widow Mines though. I was under the assumption, after watching a lot of videos during the beta, that the WMs also had the ability to: 1. Disable auto-attacking 2. Launch themselves at the enemy and explode I wasn't able to do either, and it actually got frustrating. I had my WMs in good places for recon purposes and such, but I couldn't disable the auto-attacking. This also lead to more frustration when the mines would just shoot missiles. I thought they acted like Spider Mines from SC1/BW era where they would explode when someone came near.raevin13 Jun 27, 2016
Jun 25, 2016 TvT and TvZ tankvak opinions In my own opinion I think every match up would be more fun without tank vaks. They turned tvt from a chess game to who lands tank first. liberators with tankvaks also make zerg really weak early game its very abusive. Does anyone else think this mechanic should be removed? the only problem i see is roach ravager all ins being hard to holdMarineKing1 Jun 25, 2016
Jun 23, 2016 Important Terran Macro Tips for the Expert Hello, Terran macro is definately something that takes some practise and experience to get... and some might say that it's just as difficult as the zerg at high level, but thats another story. 1) When you expand with a new Command Centre, always turn into an Orbital Command first and drop a mule before lifting off/building SCVs. This way, the OC benefits your economy in the most immediate way possible, and doesn't waste potential while in transit/ starting up. 2) Keep all your Orbital Commands on one hotkey. Using this simple technique, it makes macroing MULEs much easier as well as making emergency Scans a more reliable affair. With two OCs available there is a much greater chance that one will have the energy you need to get that pesky DT. 3) Hotkey your Command Centre from the start of the game, preferably on an easy hotkey like 4. This means that when you need it, you aren't desperately panning back to your base and wasting time. 4) Pressing and holding a unit's hotkey will fill the entire queue. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT TO KNOW and will redefine the way you think about macro as Terran once you use this feature to your advantage. 5) Link all your Production Structures to hot keys. From this point you can decide whether to seperate them all into seperate numbers (like using 5=barracks, 6=factory, 7=starport etc.) or to stick them all on one key and tab through them. 6) Possibly the biggest tip I'll give you all post - here is a guide to how many Production structures you generally need to wage war effectively as Terran: 1 Barrracks/Factory/Starport = those units will be produced in a trickle, and suppliment your army in a supporting role. 2 Barracks/Factory/Starport = decent production, par enough to make an army given enough time 3 Barracks/Factory/Starport = a 'macro' king's assortment. Essentially, your army is coming out of here buckwheet. Note that adding a Reactor means that Production Structure is +2 on this list. Unfortunately many times Reactor units are weaker then Tech Lab ones (Marines coming to mind) so it would still be beneficial to have say 2 Barracks w Reactor to = 4. 7) Know what you want to happen a couple of minutes from now, and build accordingly. Terrans are a race of planning, despite what opponents of the MMM might say. I hope you find this tips useful, and to the pros who already know them - sorry for wasting your time.

Jun 23, 2016 terran thor rush, outdated, yet effective Thor rushing is soo funny. It's an old tactic that rarely ever sees use. But that's what makes it freaking awesome. Your enemy will almost never expect it!! It is really effective against protoss while being effective against terran. caution when using against zerg. build order (my version) = 2 scvs as soon as you can and start mining. create a supply depot and make another scv. once the depot is done create a barracks ASAP. construct a refinery and then have three scvs mine from it. create more scvs while switching some to mine gas as you will need minerals. create another depot. once you have 100 gas your scv should be done with the depot, create a factory. make sure you have atleast 3-4 marines while thor is being produced. once thor is out rush their base and have 5 scvs set to auto repair so the thor doesn't die. if your enemy tries to focus down thor scvs will repair and the thor's spectacular ground attack will wreck most early armies. Have a nice day trolling some protoss ;)ghost33 Jun 23, 2016
Jun 22, 2016 How do i beat ultralisk? Heyjo, i rly have no chance, when Ultras join the field. Unless i am able to somehow cripple Zerg hardcore and prevent ultras i lose every game in TvZ as soon as those Ultralisks pop. Funny thing, i just went through all those GSL SSL games i found in that playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLgN32fqH1yth8VZDkibCSVv-swu_UxZeg&nohtml5=False and as far as i can say, all Terran died in a game, where ultras were out. Ofc that can have many reasons, but you would think that out of... 15? games, at least 5 or even 7-8 Terran should have won, like 50%? I mean, SC2 is balanced right? Kappa but srsly, how do i beat ultralisks? I cant beat them with bio, ok, fair enough. but Mech seems to be no viable option either. Skyterran? I dont think that rly works in most cases. And Ghosts are only good for turtlling, so you never attack? Libs, well i heared they get nerfed soon, and even if not, you just avoid the zones and you are fine, esp with Roach Ravager as startingpoint instead of LBM. Vs LBM Libs are somewhat viable, because they counter muta and in great numbers they are good vs Corruptor as well, just in case. But still, not rly a viable option. And Thor? I tried in unit test map with 3/3 vs full upgraded Ultralisk. Well, Terran loses in all cases. And lets be honest, when does Terran hast 3/3 mech upgrades, when playing bio? esp now that Sky and Mech have different attackupgrades again. So, pls tell me, how, am i supposed to win vs ultra, if i am NOT able to deal heavy dmg in mid game, and it is just even macro game?AleXusher27 Jun 22, 2016
Jun 22, 2016 Terran Vs Adept? Counters? I've been watching alot of pro games and casual play myself and im a little confused on the Adept counter. Blizzard recommends we use tanks or thors? Wouldn't tanks hit your own mineral line and thors are too expensive until late game? Other option they say is to use marauder due to their high armour, would mass marauder work for adept rush? Or are they too slow to build due to needed a tech lab? Im a little confused on these counters.Laz16 Jun 22, 2016
Jun 21, 2016 Can't Manually Trigger Stimpack/Shield I feel...a little silly writing about this but I've been looking through the forums and random net but can't seem to find an answer. I recently fired SCII Wings back up for the hell of it but for the life of me I can't seem to trigger the stimpacks like I used to.

Jun 21, 2016 Switching to Terran Is there a general strategy guide for MUs per race I'll face?noobtastic5 Jun 21, 2016
Jun 20, 2016 Marines seem like garbage` Especially in the late game. Literally they are useless unless you are playing against another Terran who also makes lots of marines. Zerg makes ultras, brood lords, infestors, etc. and you die with bio. Toss makes storms, colossus, disruptors, etc. and you die with bio. If I play bio, when should I transition and what is the best thing to switch to once you've made lots of barracks? It seems like if they reach ultras / storms etc. you have already lost the game.PoLyGLoT23 Jun 20, 2016

Jun 12, 2016 Not getting promotion/Terran So, im rank1 gold and i keep winning against platinums that it gives me, sometimes even diamond, thats when i happen to lose once and then win against another 3 platinums, vicious cycle.. How in hell am i supposed to get into platinum ? Also, what the heck happend to terrans, when i want to play against other races of similar skill i have to have 500APM and computer instead of brain, can someone fire this david kim guy already? i even remember one pro terran quitting this game because of what are they doing to terrans. I want to play teran on higher ranks but this is just putting me away from game.. especially when i see how enemy protoss just A clicks my army while i have to break my wrist. I sense some serious fanboyism in blizzard balance staff tbh For those who don't get obvious: I returned to game after few years, since hots, and my winrate is 75+%BluStar3 Jun 12, 2016
Jun 11, 2016 Supply depot build time I finally played some games for the first time in forever, and I'm probably the last person to notice this but, the supply depots take 21 seconds to build, and I was watching my opponent build their pylon and it takes 18 seconds to build. Checked another replay and the overlord takes 18 seconds to build. I know that this was a balance thing for Terran in the past because I believe both Protoss and Zerg had 14 supply to start off with and, Terran had 15 supply. Now Protoss and Terran start with 15 supply and Zerg still starts at 14. Both Protoss and Zerg take 18 seconds to build supply. To sum up (Didn't want to read paragraph) Protoss : 15 starting supply 18s supply building time Terran : 15 starting supply 21s supply building time Zerg : 14 starting supply 18s supply building time I'm making this post because I want to know whether this was the same in the past or not. This is not to provoke balance arguments, I'm just seeking informationSimitary7 Jun 11, 2016
Jun 9, 2016 Ketroc is Back & trying to make Ravens work. https://www.twitch.tv/ketroc/profile https://www.youtube.com/user/Ketroc21/videos If you don't know Ketroc, he's known for using ravens, as much as possible. They are his bread & butter. He quit a while back when the auto turret duration was nerfed, but he's back now and trying to make them work. They're now a lot better at killing all the workers at a base before opponent can respond, and far better at killing ultralisks due to increased autoturret damage per shot & higher dps. They're a lot worse at taking out buildings, so the focus should be killing their army/workers and maybe important tech buildings. Has anyone tried mass raven and had success at climbing the ladder with it? Ketroc floats a lot of minerals, could dump that into marines/hellions but he has low APM which is why I think he doesn't make many of those. He sticks to a couple of tanks and widowmines to compliment the ravens. What do you think of mass ravens, how high can you get with them these days? Any tips? etcTheCulture16 Jun 9, 2016
Jun 7, 2016 libs damage reduction just killed terran... no way to counter corruptors ... how the hell does david kim thinks thats balance?! what a auful producer just disaster.. libs were the only units that saved me against immortal ultras.. if he zerg adds like 8 corruptors im just dead... so david kim wants me to use ghost? like make it more difficult while ultras just a move, so now i need to snip, stim and kite, deploy libs, macro and lift tanks all in the same second?... while the zergs a move what is this design? just horrible horrible design.. they should fire this david kim as soon as possible the game is dieing because of this guy, so much frustrationtalski16 Jun 7, 2016
Jun 7, 2016 The game is so much harder in diamond I got to diamond today and the game is SO much harder than in platinum, and the players seem so much more easily enraged, and try harder to win like it matters to them more than anything I want advice, how to I win against other diamond players? The skill difference between platinum and diamond is like the skill difference between silver and platinum, I get kind of nervous when playing against a diamond player because I feel like they are a better diamond player than me just by looking at them in the loading screen I lose to early ling attacks when I am making my CC at the low ground even with a bunker, I lose to the nearly unbeatable ravager rushes and other terran players who seem to have a better build than me that blind counters everythingGoldenar13 Jun 7, 2016

Jun 3, 2016 Liberator Bug There seems to be something wrong with the liberator there seems to be no way to kill mass quantities of them, not even if I throw mutalisk's at a 3 to 1 ratio in favor of the multalisk the Liberators will still win.

May 30, 2016 State of the game ? Hello, Stark here, former EU plat terran, i stopped playing after the release of this damned LoTV extension. In march i believe, DK announced he was trying to adress Mech issues but was struggling to see the difficulties Mech players had. About the same period of time, Terran was having such a hard time keeping up with others races that some pro decided to quit, thus shaking the Terran community. So, my question is : In what state is the game in right now after theses events ? Did something relevant happened ?Is Mech Terran still a no go ? Does the Pro Terran scene still on the verge of extinction ? Can someone fill me up so i can decide if it's worth coming back to the game ?Stark7 May 30, 2016
May 29, 2016 the new Thor it still seems like the thor is a bad unit , ive tested it on unit tester a few times, its not there and not there.. it doesnt counter anything, for mutas id prefer libs and for broods and tempest id still prefer vikings, the thors cost so much and so immobile it should come with a greater power, blizzard are trying to make it a all arounder unit and i think thats a bad idea, thors should counter something, at the moment they dont counter anything..talski6 May 29, 2016

May 24, 2016 Mass Reaper Playstyle Guide! Tips Welcome! So i've taken the last two weeks and dedicated all my games to mass reaper. I've been experimenting many builds utilizing reapers and id love for you all to give me tips and advice. Just to say it again this isn't a tutorial on mass reaper, i'm gold. This is more of a “this is what i'm doing any tips?” kinda thread When i started playing sc2 i really wanted to find my own unique playstyles. I experimented with skyterran, mass infestors, mass swarmhosts but i think reapers are the most fun to use. Vs Terran: 14 supply 16 rax 16 gas @As soon as you have 150 throw another rax down @100 percent rax make an reaper @150 minerals make another rax and another gas When you are poking with reapers your mineral count increases drastically so get a ebay and 2 more CC’s The main objective is not to outright kill, but it sometimes does, but to delay my opponent from expanding. They are usually able to get a tank out and i stop the agression. IF my opponent has been heavily damaged OR if we are on a 4 player map i usually get a orbital as my natural and start another CC. IF my opponent hasnt been that damaged i get a pf as my natural and make my 3rd CC as a supplmentary orbital. From there onward i get a factory for tanks and get one more ebay and another armor to start upgrades. The main comp is reaper tank viking. As the reaper player i've found out that opponents are rarely bold enough to run across the map and instead do drops. Extra minerals means extra turrets and reapers are quick to get to drop sites. It is key that you expand exponetially faster than you're opponent and get orbital cc’s in your base to get even more minerals. If the game is dragging a bit a BC switch kills the opponent in all my games. Vs Zerg 14 supply 16 rax (when finished make constant reapers) 16 gas @Use you're scouting scv to make a CC near his main but hidden @300 mins throw down 2 more rax (constant reapers when finished) and get another refinery @150 mins get a ebay When your poking with your reapers your opponents lings will be preoccupied and the CC should land in his main next to his ramp. Make that CC a PF While the PF is building you should have a decent amount of reapers to defend the PF. If the PF falls its gg in higher leagues but in gold i make my nat a pf and get another supplementary orbital. I'll be far behind but my opponent can easily make a mistake or take too much damage from harrasing reapers. I then transition into SkyTerran with reapers. Liberators, banshees, ghosts and reapers. I find that ghosts can snipe ultras and corruptors with relative ease and banshees and reapers can do great economic damage. It is gas intensive so you need to expand and be dominant on the map which will be simple to do with reapers. This is probably my hardest matchup to do mass reaper for the simple reason that ultras DESTROY everything late game and even libs and banshees wont do much if the zerg is ahead on econ Vs Protoss -Exact same build as Terran I find that its harder to do the inital damage with the MSC core and pylon overcharge but the MSC is slow and you can always bait PO’s. Once the protoss player has adepts you should back off. I then usually get 3 factories and do mine tank reaper with vikings. Its usually very easy to have reapers next to their 3rd base and have them walk across the map and then snipe 20 probes. Reapers keep the protoss at home instead of in your face. While tempests stop BC play i think staying on tank viking with pf support can deal with most protoss armies Conclusion: Reapers are a lot like mutas. They are really good in game ending economic damage and are very quick. Unlike mutas reapers suck at combat. However d8 charges seem to stop enemy forces from getting too close to your tanks and DESTROY mineral lines. Diamond and above comments on my build would be very welcome. Thanks!WiDoW0 May 24, 2016
May 24, 2016 Mass ghost? Need advice So ive taken a bit inspiration from ketrocs build Usually 17 CC, 17 and 20 gas. Fast third and make 2nd and 3rd pfs  This is where I divert from ketroc. I make 2 orbitals in my main because unlike ravens ghosts cost alot of minerals I make different variations against race Against zerg I get tanks because roaches cant all be sniped. Agaonst protons I get Vikings and liberators because emp won't win me the game. Against terrain im doing a one base ghost build into mass ghost because doing fast CC is a death sentence these days in tvt. Im currently silver but im usually gold. Id your a diamond or above terran id like advice or if your other races tell me some good timings or counters. ThanksPaRaSite3 May 24, 2016

But when I see really good players or even the AI on hard mode play, I don't get how they are able to build so many units so fast. So far my problem is that I'm always outmatched because I don't have enough units to defend my base, nevermind launch an assault on an enemy base. Any tips for me?SilentNight24 May 21, 2016

May 19, 2016 Looking for Terran teachers! I'm pretty new to Starcraft II. However in the short couple of months I've had it, I've completely fell in love with the game. I have a decent (not great) handle on macro and hot keys and build orders. I've been practicing these things and I feel like it isn't enough alone. I'm still having trouble understanding what I'm seeing when I'm scouting. Still don't have a proper grasp on the proper "micro" tactics needed to be a great player. I have been watching some replays of pro Terran players and it's still not 100% logical to me. I am looking for a friend and training buddy to help each other grow in sc2. I am open to other races but I am really intrigued with Terran (probably because I started with the campaign my 1st time playing the game).PrinceRoyce4 May 19, 2016

May 17, 2016 Why can zerg go safely 3 base Spire? I am lost, if someone could have a look at this horrible game i played, and tell my how, or why zerg is allowed to go 3 base spire vs a stim timing push, that would be awesome. I also feel because of the queens i never get to scout properly with my reaper. How on earth do i win vs this? Zerg for me seems to have a way better economy then compared to HotS while Terran got stuck. Is this the case or only my bad feeling? http://ggtracker.com/matches/6644103AleXusher2 May 17, 2016
May 17, 2016 New to Terran need advice, builds, unit comps Hello I've been playing a lot of zerg want to start to learn other races, starting with terran. Since LOTV it has been difficult to find information on good builds and what not. So I was wondering if anybody has any good builds (mostly macro) for all three matchups, and unit compositions that I should have in both early to late game. I also have a general question regarding terran unit production. What are the general rules of thumb when it comes to the number of production buildings like barracks as you increase your base count?Matteus3 May 17, 2016
May 15, 2016 Terran Macro Drill ... The most important difference between bronze league (or silver or gold) and diamond/masters league, is the understanding of priority. In sc2, there are literally dozens of things you could be doing at any given time that will benefit you, but you don't have enough time to do all of them, so which ones do you do first, second, third, and which do you let slip? For example if we imagine 3 ppl executing the same 10 seconds of a game, one of them is a starcraft pro, another is a diamond league player, and the third is a bronze league player. At the beginning of the 10 second period, we have an idle command center, 4 idle workers, we are close to supply cap, we have enough money to expand, and enough workers to start saturating an expansion, we have 4 idle rax, an idle factory, and an idle starport, our army is just outside a vulnerable enemy expansion, and we have a bainshee that we can chose to harass with, or chose to fight as part of our main army with... Dozens of things to choose from, nobody can do all of them within 10 seconds. Mr Diamond League can do 4 things, Mr pro gamer can do 6, but they will both choose the same 4 to do first. But what about Mr Bronze? Mr Bronze's problem is not that he is slow, he can complete 4 actions just like Mr Diamond... But what makes him different from the other 2 players, is which 4 actions he'll chose to do. He may send his bainshee in to harass, harass with his army, q up a unit at his starport, and q up something at his factory. Bob has fallen into the common trap, what he doesn't realize is that the most exciting part of starcraft... the part that most shoutcasters focus on, the part that most people remember about their games, or would watch if they are given the choice to watch a game of sc like a movie... is the least important part. If you are in the bronze league either you are very slow (unlikely) or you simply need to re-organize your priorities. Try this Terran Macro Drill. It's purpose is to focus all of your attention on the most important part of starcraft: your economy/macro. You'll find yourself with 3000 minerals per minute instead of 900, you'll find yourself with 200 unit space of units instead of 110... Sure, those units will be crappy units, and you will still lose games... but once you've drilled yourself into prioritizing macro, and realizing how much money you CAN get and spend, you can go back and start spending that huge pile of cash on more realistic units. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kXbSvEKLJl8 halby71 May 15, 2016
