    Any SC2 Players?

    Any of our forum members play SC2? I'd love to talk about peoples experiences and what you think of the game so far. I'm a first time SC player as of 2 weeks ago so I don't know much about build orders or strategies. Anyone happen to know a Guide or Site where I might find things like this so I can actually be half decent.

    I mainly play as zerg, but am I right in thinking they're the hardest? also am I correct with the fact that without build orders ect I'll fail miserably?
    What do you usually play as?

    I've played both races extensively. Learn how to do a baneling bust and you can win 95% of games at platinum and lower (vs protoss/terran). This is my baneling bust build order:

    1. Send out overlords to scout, make 10/10 drones
    2. Make extractor
    3. Make 11th drone
    4. Cancel extractor
    5. Ride 11/10 until 100 minerals, make overlord
    6. Make drones to 13
    7. Make spawning pool + extractor when you're about to hit 14
    8. Put drones on extractor right when it's ready
    9. Drones to 15, then overlord
    10. Queen when spawning pool is done + zerglings depending on map
    11. Don't make any more drones from here on, only zerglings.
    12. When you have enough gas, research zergling speed.
    13. At 50 gas make baneling nest.
    14. Mass zerglings just outside of opponent's base, out of vision range.
    15. When baneling nest is ready, make your 6 banelings.
    16. Banelings in first, blow up the opponent's wall (supply depot, zealots, or any unit, don't hit high HP buildings like barracks or gateways).
    17. Send surviving banelings into the opponent's worker line.
    18. If the opponent never made a wall, you should be able to run straight into his base with speedlings and get a free win.

    That's the jist of it. Make sure to mineral boost while you're doing all of this.

    I sent you a replay from a game today.

    Thanks, I'll have to practice it in some offline games and then give it a go on rated. I've also heard amazing things about the Protoss Dark Templars from a friend who said he made like 20 and then wiped someone out.

    Nah, don't get in the habit of trying such strategies. That's an all-in move, if the opponent scouts your Dark Shrine, you lose.

    I bought it a week or so ago, and working my way slowly through the campaign - only about 8 missions in so far, but loving it. I'm saving multiplayer until I've finished that. My g/f gives me enough grief already about the time I spend on WoW - I can't add multiplayer SC2 into the equation as well just yet
