i think tanks just blow ass period, but i never use terran anyways so do what u will
Well, if tanks are already sieged, then I'll just use a shuttle and drop zeals on top of them rather than needlessly throwing them at your tanks.(or attack from more than one side)
You really need to have your tanks backed up with something. I mean comon, sending a group of tanks with no escorts=noob
i rather non seige on toss
non-siege isnt gonna work well either...zealots pwn tanks either way
I'm terrible with Terran, personally. With Zerg, the only strategy I've seen that can indefinitely beat my crackling strategy is a mass of tanks sieged on a ledge. Not even Dark Swarm helped; splash damage is full beneath it, so only the targeted unit is left undamaged, while the units (zlings in this case) around it are damaged or killed. While I look back, there were dozens of things I could have done to get around the situation; however, very few other strategies could have beaten mine at that point in the game.
i like to use tanks for defending my base more-so then attack, as in siege mode they do awesome damage. baisically 2 tanks + bunkers +2 turrets=secure entrance. but yes, i llove them for def.
That's when you drop
Like Tronga said, drop some lings or something melee down there in the middle of em always works 4 me
just drop a bunch of speedlots
MasterAmerica, what about firebats? MnM are used ZVT, which in itself does average against cracklings, but if he see's alot of lings he'll just add a bunch of firebats. That's why you add lurkers to the bunch. And if you already have hive might as well toss in some ultra.
or just use Guardians and get it over with lol
Guardians are a good surprise early on, but as terran's science vessel count increases their use decreases. If you could time it after you caught his sv with scourge perhaps it would be effective. Ultras are just a more conservative and safe choice.
I prefer lurker/ling/deflier, though it's harder to execute.(gotta learn sometime) Maybe throw in some guards if I have gas left.
General rule: The more tanks he has, the less SVs he'll have and vice-versa.
Lurker ling defiler, when used correctly, is something that almost makes me question the balance of Starcraft. It is devastating.
Yeah, defilers are, more often than not, targetted by irradiate than anything else because of how devasting that strat is, when properly executed.
There's one game I remember, SKY League OPL 2 round ArtOfTerran vs JulyZerg, July did lurk ling and def, and Art still won I think(can't remember very well who won) he ended up with bunch of bats killing lurk + ling at the end.
Kinda made me sick.
Anybody remember the "trail of tears" pimpest play. The guy used dark swarm to cover a drone which mined.
How is that play any good? And the drone would only mine about 7 times before DS wears off.
Can't explain with just words, it's a must-watch replay(with your own eyes).
Go here to download the replay(includes screenshots)
This replay only works for v1.09b, so you'll need to patch your SC to v1.09b if you wanna watch it. I got a program that can patch to 1.08~1.12b in a sec w/o dling anything. But I think it's too big to post it here, so I'll upload it somewhere if you want.
