    Terran is the weakest.

    Zerg have lurkers & cracklings.... and protoss has high template, archon and zealots.

    Terran really has nothing, besides tanks and irradiate. But not many people actually get SCI's and you could always take out their tanks with some guardians or even ultras.

    Marines and Medics, and I said, It kinda sucks vs. Toss and if toss was equipped with Dark Swarm then it would be an unbalanced game. Zealots and DT's work well under Dark Swarm.

    M&M doesn't suck vs toss, only in mid/late game. If u can get 12 marines and 2 medics (some firebats if he makes lots) before he gets reavers or templars it can be very effective. Of course u have to switch to metal right away but u will get an edge if u pull it off.

    M&M vs terran sucks tho, 5 vultures or some tanks can kill an army of marines...

    M&M sucks in early game vsing toss. Any toss player would get at least 5 zealots in early game to counter rushes. Unless you have lots of firebats. The toss opponent would get zealots & goons. Most protoss people only go for dragoons anyway.

    If u M&M vs toss u have to center fire, and 12 stimmed marines will waste 5 zealots easy. And a toss player who knows what he is doing rushes to goons asap vs terran.
