    No argument, except that if it was a map where some players were going ground, you would get killed if you made enough scourge to stop mass carriers.

    If say for example, you were on Bgh, and you were attacking from your base, say from a side, the ground couldn't get to you, cause you have longer range. And usually the Bcs could just retreat to their base, which would have turrets, if they were smart.

    Dead wrong. I think we can all agree that BGH is the most played melee map on b.net and if so, that it is not hard to make mass ANYTHING, given enough time.

    Well then...ahem. Don''t really know what you meant by that lol, since anyone would leave once they didn't have any nexi (yes; the plural; made it myself :p ) or probes.

    ??? Please explain. When I see battle cruisers en masse, they rarely let any shortranged units get inside their range, because their range is so long and there are so many of them. When you are playing ground, you have lots of buildings, so it's tough to maneuver units in there to attack them ( I usually go Goliaths; the best unit in my opinion :p ).

    Alors, en conclusion, dans mon opinion, ils sont des bons "units" and they are a very good (read:powerful) newb tactic :D

    Mutalisks are kinda bad except in large groups, your right. But Goliaths+Marines+Medics upped and stimmed will dominate methinks.

    first one is good.
    second one is .... well, trust me, scouts and wraiths can take on any captial ship.
    third one: i don't play bgh often, try getting big ships en masse in a ladder map. pretty hard while fending off your opponents, and trying to expand.
    i don't know what i was talking about on the fourth one..
    fifth one: bcs long range??? not really, it's only 6. which is only 1 longer than a dragoon with upgrade. refer to second one for ...uhh.. stuff.
    as for the final thingy. captial ships aren't that great. protoss going carriers verse terran, then terran tries to go wraiths(if possible, otherwise, they go goliaths). but, the protoss just needs some corsairs to stop the wraiths. this is same with battlecruisers. I don't get why people say big ships are good! sometimes, number and speed is more important; which is most of the time. I'm tired of this argument.

    conclusion:
    they have strengths, they have weaknesses, can we please close this thread??!?!?!?

    I disagree with your golaith one, a large army of them could stop them, but the missiles are quarted on golaiths. You could use a large army of valks if they are closed in.

    have you even bothered searching? I assume not...
    I'm pretty sure sclegacy has them. But if you bought battlechest, you get the guides for free, which contains all this information.

    Close this thread please!!!!

    Pishaw. Even if we do, some newbie who thinks he is smart will start a new one in like two weeks. K that's my 2 cents. Don't post anymore. End. Game over. Conclude. Finish. Deconstrucut.

    of course there are 'bad' units, but if you think about it...why is it bad?
    final thing: for those who still think there are 'bad' units, then why don't you compare a zergling to a carrier!!!!(wait...carrier is worse...hmm...i got it! zergling to a interceptor!!! muahahhaha)

    ahem...yea, CLOSE THIS THREAD!!
    reasons: spam is in here, weird people is in here, I'm in here.
