I'm thinking about posting a list of all the zerg strategies I can think of, then later doing some terran and protoss. How many people would like me to? Also if so, should I do terran strats then protoss or protoss then terran?
Hopefully these would help both people who are good, average, and people who are just starting, the good people in SoC are usually eager to learn more strategies or find a strategy that would own everything, as well as know most if not all the abbreviations. :P The just starting people could also learn some strategies, although with some of the abbreviations I might add a key at the bottom (I'm used to the SC abbreviations by now, but I'm not sure everyone in SoC is). The average people would also probably benefit from some more strategies, and would probably know most of the abbreviations.

NOTE: these will be on non-money maps (bgh IS considered a money map in my opinion), but on iCCup maps (international cyber cup) which is what the Korean pros play on :P (who, I have to admit, are nerds at SC :P , and I'm not meaning to be racist or anything, the Koreans are just good...)
The reason I'm not doing them on money maps or bgh is because there are so many strategies I have seen on those that it would take forever to type up :shock: and people can always make new ones that work :D

That sounds like a good idea. People that play starcraft play at night so people that just bought the game might have trouble learning the moves or just grasping some of the concepts of the game. And obviously people that play a lot would be willing to take a few tips here and there in order for them to dominate. ;)

So my opinion is go for it and see how it turns out then you can see if people are wanting to know tips of protoss and terran.

I say go for it too!

But, I ofcourse would like to see strategies for the money maps because that seems to be used the most in pvp matches (BGH and Fastest mostly).

Swarm

I could type up some fastest and bgh strats too, but theres so many that work... and most of the time testing these I'm just playing against comps :P so its not really too good of a test... Alot of the time people somehow wall in at their bridge, with command centers or nexuses (nexi?) and then get some range thing behind that. Zerg can get lurkers by the time or the toss/terran rush at the start, which is what I try to do. Terran can go mass gols, toss can go mass carriers, scouts, reavers, zealots and good, etc... those are just some of the strats that come to mind right now.
I don't hate fastest or bgh strats, its just the amount of them that I can't say alot of em... but I will be happy to go over some on an actual game if anyone wants me to :D

I will be working on typing up the zerg strats...

At the Korean pro level (again, not meaning to be racist) they have a lot of build orders, and yes some new ones come out every now and then, but most of them are already created. By then its just trying to pull off build orders, and of course then scouting becomes everything. They don't make up new strategies on the spot, they make them up very rarely and then practice and see what counters them, and if it is a good strategy then they use it. So telling everyone what strategies I use doesn't really do too much, its just if they know how to counter and if they scout the strategy.

Also, thats the thing about fastest, people can make all these crazy strategies and then its what counters those units and just use those...

And thanks for the compliment, Tri :P

idk... last time I played Craig was pretty long ago, and I lost... considering he doesn't play anymore though, I think I might be better :P

I'm still working on typing up all the strats I can think of (I also need to find out timings of things, like what drone you send out for the hatchery, when you scout, what one makes a den... etc)
