    By easy i guess you mean by far the most unforgiving micro race early to mid game. I guess with the A move comment ur just trolling ;D. Hope so.

    We all have different opinions. Yes, I was kidding around. But having played platinum on both Protoss and Terran I have no doubt which one I think is the hardest. Ofc varies from person to person.

    (Don't bash on races, that's not the intention of this post as I want to keep the thread clean, feel free to share your opinion though.)

Combined with units such as Infestors or Vipers and using other Hive tech as the bulk of the army can create a truly formidable offence, which can be repositioned into a quick defense.

    Not to mention their harass utility in just dumping say 3 or 4 near a distant expand and just keeping it under attack constantly.

    We also have yet to see someone start using Spore Crawlers on a regular and deep basis. Spore Crawlers are probably the best detection unit the Zerg have now (as long as they're on creep) as they offer mobile drop defense, anti-air and detection, moving at 1.9 speed on creep, with way more HP than Overlords, not to mention they have no supply impact.
    Yeah. Rushing swarm hosts, spines, and spores outside of a protoss base is hilarious. Also I don't understand why Protoss or Terran don't just... walk around the swarm host ball xD

    Because locusts do insane damage, you'll lose your base fast, and if you go for a base trade, zerg can easily retreat after destroying most of your economy and get you in a pincer attack.

    Pretty much that. Zergs aim to base trade, because it's so easy for them to do, just have a ton of larvae stored up and rebuild your army, retake the Hatch or move to another location and carry on, almost as if nothing happened. Swarm Hosts pumping out units that cost no supply means that they have to be dealt with, or you're essentially losing units to something that does no economical damage to your opponent.

    Unless it's Terran, or the Protoss walk around do damage to the Zerg's base and recall. Or use warp prisms.

    Saw thread title, was disappointed.

    Sorry my friend but we hang out in this thread: http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...ad-StarCraft-2

    And everyone there knows carbot. I'm not sure if there's a point with this thread or not.

    Hey o/ the point was to share something I thought was fun, did not see another thread about CarbotAnimation (and for sure did not want to wade into 51 page of a generic SC2 thread to see if there was mention of it). If this is pointless for you you can ask a moderator to have it closed!

    There's a point in the thread still because other people probably don't know carbot as much, but then maybe it'd be more appropriate in the video megathread we have here in Fun Stuff.

    Sorry to go all mod on you. I mean no offense, ofc.

    if it is appropriate we can ask a mod to merge it into the video megathread

    I tried to merge threads with the SC2 megathread, but it didn't let me, so I just moved it into the VG forum and I'ma holler at a VG mod to merge them for me.

    Thanks! --Eternal

    I completely missed the memo that you only need to bring the three races to level 5 on the beta to get the bonus portraits on your live account now. So reinstalling the beta I am!

    Those zerglings and banelings are so cute. It's really confusing cause they kill Terran by the thousands.

    my favourite is the infestor. And I still think that the episode with the Hellion is the best
