    say, you're given 1000 minerals and 1000 gas.
    what is your strongest attack party?

    ehh why not
    1 carrier
    350 min 250 gas
    (i think it's 25 per intercepto,r 8 interceptors so 200 min)

    2obs
    50 min 150 gas

    2 high T
    100 min 300 gas

    1 goon
    125 min 50 gas

    1 DT
    125 min 100 gas
    950 min 850gas

    i'll only use carriers if the situation was that all units are fully upgraded already.
    okay who's next? surly somebody can beat my little crappy combo

    you just gave me an idea... lets make a game out of this... here are a few rules:
    1. units are fully upgraded
    2. spellcasters are with full energy (and all magic researched)
    3. you need to give a combination of units that would beat ALL mentioned so far (i mean separately).
    4. lets say forces start on a opposite corner of the map (a small one say 64x64)

    these are just recommendations, you can offer other opinions

    nice you put in an observer :)
    ok ill try to beat you:
    2 queens - 200m 200g
    1 overlord - 100m
    8 scourges - 100m 300g
    2 mutalisk - 200m 200g
    2 lurkers - 250m 250g
    2 hydralisk - 150m 50g

    ok since we start in the opposite corners of the map (hehe i made the rules) my queens are fast and will come before all units and kill your 2 high templars with broodlings (and the queens will be then killed-maybe one survives, but lets say they both die :( ).
    then scourges take care of the carrier (even if 3 get killed on the way, which is doubtfull)
    mutas can finish the goon and the rest easily

    the hydras and lurks are there just there to make it to 1000m 1000g :)

    EDIT:
    ugh i almost made a mistake...
    ok if i see your templars morphing into an archon, i kill the carrier immediately and then move on other units, after the archon morphs, i should be able to kill it with the remaining units... there are queens with ensnare, and the archon is stucked (i can spell it 4 times) :)

    since everybody has full energy i'll hallcinate one of my dt and pray that your queen broods the wrong one and i'll give it with my carrier. if scorges come, i still have 1 ht with full energy so i'll just "wham now i have 2 carriers which one will you kill "

    ehh maybe i can get rid of my goon and put in a scout. iono

    dont think so.

    2 Defiler - 100 min 300 gas (in total)
    1 overlord - 100 min
    10 Hydralisks - 750 gold 250 gas
    2 zerglings - 50 gold


    use plague on units and dark swarm on my hydras before battle.

    Zerglings are just there for fun, used to take out HT or any other casters I guess (would die probly before lol)

    Seriously, thats what I would probably go for. you can get a nice sized army of just 50 mineral marines and medics.

    darn that wretched hallucination! :)
    first i would use the broodlings to kill whatever unit you have less then 2 pieces (like if you hallucinate the ht and car (if you dont hallucinate both, thats bad :) ), id kill the goon and dt (well you wont hallucinate the dt anyway-cause the hallucinations are visible))
    ill probably loose the overlord there because of the dt, queens should be ok - theyre fast

    so its your combo minus goon and dt
    against mine minus overlord and energy for 2 broodlings

    i think that wouldnt be so hard
    lucky for me, i also have 2 parasites - they kill the hallucinations in one shot... and then send the scourges
    after the broodling queen has still enough energy for ensare or parasite.

    even mutas are fast i can harass you to see which carrier fires (the hallucination has no interceptors)
    though a well placed psistorm against them could undo my plans
    but still only 5 scourges need to survive

    but if you have any more tricks up your sleeve please do tell :)

    N_LeGenD)
    yah my scourges kill your overlord, and then youre without detector... 2 lurkers, 2 hydra and 2 mutas would kill your 10 hydras easily (if you keep running, the broodlings would eventually catch you :) )

    Lurkers are quite useless when my hydras are out of range, no? :)

    and if I cast plauge the moment i see yur lurks, that would give me good advantage whenever you come out, and i can use zerglings for consume if I need mana...

    seems like good strategy, maybe we should try this out in real game :eek:

    this is what happens when i type aND DONT think about what i am typing

    since everybody has full energy i'll hallcinate one of my HT and pray that your queen broods the wrong one and i'll kill it with my carrier. if scorges come, i still have 1 ht with full energy so i'll just "wham now i have 2 carriers which one will you kill "

    yes but you forgot about my queens, i will either trap you with lurkers somehow, or you would wait a slow certain death by broodlings :)

    hehe

    ok, now just to beat you

    4 ghosts = 100m 300g
    2 science vessels = 200m 450g
    7 marines = 350m
    2 medics = 100m 50g
    1 siege tank = 150m 100g
    1 goliath = 100m 50g

    ok, i have 4 lockdowns to lockdown your real carrier (and if i hit the right one, i could lock the goon as well)
    i have 6 irradiate to kill the high templars

    the m&m will take care of the rest
    goliath will have fun
    siege will be useless :)

    10 ghost (250/750)
    1 science vessel (100/225)

    Not to be picky, but this really isn't strategy in any way shape or form. Unless you specified a race and described a situation perfectly, it wouldn't be, and even then, it still wouldn't help anyone much at all.
