    If im facing a Protoss user 1 vs 1 on LT, and my opponent's strategy is to build canons everywhere and go mass carriers, wut is the best strategy i should use if im Terran?

    Just drop his base before he gets carriers. If he gets carriers, get wraiths.

    I ussually play LT and using tank drops are hard against my usual protoss opponents, their bases are guarded with zealots/dragoons or canons early, especially near their workers. They expect a terran user to normally do quick drops.

    Uhh. A tank push with a dropship (to scout the cliff) and goliath support should do the trick.

    sometimes, a mediocre player will only pay attention to the battle and little or no attention to his base. so, if u have 2 bases(one hes attacking and one hes not attacking) have a small team of ghosts w/ nukes and Drop a couple A-bombs on his punk @$$.
    back the ghosts up with tanks and goliaths once the bombs are dropped and raid raid raid when u punch a whole in his defense. meanwhile use wraiths to destroy carriers backed up with science vessel EMP shockwave.

    I use battlecruisers to take out the Cannons. If the opponent has carriers use the ghost for lockdown then kill.

    i usually use tanks to make a big enough whole for a drop ship to get in i have vultures spider mines for backup and goliaths then i send about 3 ships with tanks in to blow his ass to pieces.

    the easiest way to kill carriers is to have BC's. If you dont have them yet a good combo of goliaths and wraiths should do just fine.

  14. boys, boys, boys, no matter how good they are carriers take a while to get. Including all the intercepters. Just make tanks and rape his base bfor carriers or you can make goliaths,wraiths and micro his carriers away

    Goliath, Vultures and tank take over the middle and take over all the expantion before him to make him not to expand put tanks on hes high land expantion. when you take over the middle build turret spider mind sieged tank and some Goliath for backup.

    Carriers get owned soooo easy. Gols, Scourges, Wraiths, Hydras. There is heaps, more than BC counters.
