    Rather than make a poll, you guys can figure it out amongst yourselves.

    I reckon the least-used unit would have to be the Infested Terran, no one ever gets those, unless that is their mission.

    I personaly find queen the least used unit, although it's very useful unit but can't be bothered to micro, broodling skill is very useful against tanks

    Well for me, the least used unti would have to be hands down the Vulture. I just never found a use for them other then a few Case vs Case situations (Archons, light armored units) and Spider Mines.

    What are you talking about? If you can tech to Vults in early game, you could essentially win the game. They decimate all starting units, and are brutal against all Protoss shields.

    Infested Terrans as well for me.

    Honestly, they cost too much, take too long, and you can't really mass them or their damage will kill the others adjacent to it.

    Only really good if it's late game, your enemy is turtled up, and you've got some Defilers, and about a half dozen of them to send in under Dark Swarm. Very effective against heavy De under DS.

    It depends on who your playing coRt, but I can see your reason. I just don't like them, that's all. :p

    In PvT, you should always go Dragoons/Obs. Zealots suck against Vultures.

    Easily solved w/ mass turrets. :p

    That's practically an established tactic while using 4 SCVs to build/repair turrets.

    It doesn't pwn me or anyone. Mass turret is just gay(no offense) because all it does is stall and it pisses me off. That's about it. I mean, of course, you're gonna abuse the fact that they cost 75 minerals, but c'mon. This is like one of the things I hate about pvt because it's just annoying. I miss the days where turrets were 100 mins.

    I don't play ran.

    People make mass turrets to stall for golitahs or whatever. Whether it's against carriers or arbiters.

    well... if they went ground the AI tells them to attack the turrets before going in ;) that's about 3 seconds of valuable time

    If I don't count the obvious Infested Terran, I'd say the Valkiyrie.
