    My personal opinion is that they are good to serve as support for the zealots to destroy ranged, heavy armored units/buildings, because the zlots, as the melee units they are, will suffer way too much. Using the goons, it'll be helpfull.

    I've won many a game by quickly massing goons with only 2 Zealots at begin for defense. They can kill almost anything early on especially in numbers, theyre very powerful. They can even kill masses of lings if you can micro them right.

    I'd either run my Dragoons away from masses of Zerglings, or let them die. Microing Dragoons to take on Zerglings takes too much time...time where you could've been pumping out backup.

    I hotkey buildings and use hotkeys, I've gotten better at it (Since my last few games) where I can throw stuff out and do decent micro. But I always lose to Siege Tanks, no matter what race I am, hahah.

    Zealots take out tanks and dragoons take out vults. It's really,really foolish to say goons are useless.(although I think they could be beefed up in terms of build time). God , I miss the old days.

    my opinion is that goons do have their uses, espicially coupled with zeals and ht's thats how i use them, and anyway i barely use them for attack mainly for a small standing force in case someone back doors me, is it just me or does tiger shark and prox argue ALOT

    theres no way to fight terran without goons.... and without goon support zealots are screwed against anything decent. zealots need that cover fire.

    fighting another toss without goons is dumb too.. theyll get some goons and out micro you easy with their range.

    zerg, i guess its possble to win against without goons... but their hydra/lurk will be very tough to kill with no range.

    To the people who're saying goons suck, I'm still waiting for them replays.
    C'mon, be a man and don't dodge.

    Dragoons are a necessity, anyone who doesn't use them has rocks for brains. In ANY matchup.
