The evolution of the Marine

General Discussion
The History of every major Galactic Civilization tends to pass through three distinct and recognizable phases, those of Survival, Inquiry, and Sohpistication, otherwise known as the How, Why, and Where phases.

The first phase is characterised by the question, "how can I use these marines to defend my base?" the second by the question, "Why do my marines work so well against everything?" and the third by the question, "where should I send my marines next?"
How I can use Bacon?

Why is Bacon so delicious?

WHERE DID YOU PUT DA BACON??!! GIMME MOAR
Believe it or not, the first army units anyone makes in this game are their most powerful.

T1 is underestimated in these threads. It seems people only think the Marine is a powerful T1.

Edit: I know it's a joke. I'm just saying.

How can you be original?

Why do you post something that has been posted a million times?

Where did you put your creativity?

Zerglings and roaches are pretty darn effective.

Protoss T1 sucks, though.

FF are pretty good, bro.
zlots with FFs to hold enemy units in place are pretty good, bro.
stalkers with FFs to kill small chunks/outrange the enemy are pretty good, bro.

chargelots and blink stalkers (yes i know t2 but its just a t2 upgrade, still the t1 unit) are pretty good, bro.

yes, i realize that all of these rely on FF. That's the main problem with toss. a nerf on FF with a buff on stalkers and maybe a cost reduction/movement of charge to maybe cyber core or forge to get it earlier would be a pretty good change imo
This sounds exactly like its from Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.

Funny you should say that...
No, the actual question is...

"Why, after hundreds of years, traveling lightyears away from the U.S and just the Earth in general, why we still call the basic fighting unit a Marine?"
Heh, cool reference. But the third question ought to be "Where should I send my Marines next?"

I agree. FF is not a balancing factor, it's a patch.
