    Didn't u forgot something about lockdown and psistorm?

    a good Terran palyer would scan the enemy base first, and if he saw ghosts/templars/defilers, he would just cast EMP on them, they get no energy, and he would keep always searching for more

    and then, they would even make defenseive matrix on BC's

    SV rocks =P

    Dont ask me how to avoid that, cuz i dont know either, vbut maybe, EMP the SV first, i guess

    uh, the best zerg attack force against BCs (in my opinion) is the mutalisks distraction, then attack with scrouges. Its sacrificing a unit, but it works. I tried it in a terranvzerg free for all. I think it was challenger, i forgot.

    Here's an awesome terran strategy for Terran I saw in a replay of an excellent Terran player:

    When the enemy attacks your base with BC's, get what you need... Wraiths and Medics. They are cheap, and they work very well. How? Blind any detection and send in the cloaked wraiths. The enemy shouldn't have scan if he has BC's, unless you fell asleep at the keyboard and let him do such a thing.

    With Protoss:

    As said throughout much of this thread, High Templar are a group of BC's worst enemy. Five or six High Templar and half a dozen or more Corsairs can clear BC's in seconds.

    With Zerg:

    Hydralisks and Defilers... simple. Have about 6 defilers and cast Dark Swarm to keep the Hydralisks safe and Plague on the BC's. This and/or Mutalisks and Devourers. About two dozen Mutalisks and a dozen Devourers should easily beat a dozen BC's.

    This may not be so easy cuz u may not know he is goin bc. I think u should give us units that is used be everyone, eg. goons, wraiths, etc. not everyone may have defilers ready in the first attack of bc, and usually the first attack usually finishes a player off, if he is not newb. Good players using bc dun let you know he is going bc unless he has attacked you alrdy, and usually u would have died

    For terran I think wraith will work well against Battlecrusiers, you can have like 3 wraiths per BC. For toss, scouts just rip up BC's and I've never really found a good way for zerg to deal with massed BC's because the scurries always get shot up when getting close.

    whit zerg, just make dark swarm and put some hydras on it, the just wont die... then u can send scourges, because the BC's are trying to kill the hydras, and wont target the scourges most of the times

    This thread should be closed...we already know whats the best counter for BCs with each race.

    Toss-PSI-Storm + Scouts

    Terran-More BCs or Gol+Lockdown

    Zerg-Dswarm + Hydra or Devs + Hydras

    The Medics will only stop the Acid spores. I didnt mention plague anyway.
    A dropship full of SCV's would work alot better.
