    Listen to TrongaMonga people. Though you're kind of repeating what I said about zerlings and air on page one.

    lings are probably the coolest unit out of the lamest race in starcraft. Their fast attack can raise building and goons in seconds. However, they are really weak vs firebats, the best unit in starcraft. bunkered firebats can litterally kill lings all day long. Add a suv repairing or a medic, and firebats are invincible vs lings.

    Dont get me started on "well i can attack from air" argument, cause thats why you build other units, duh.....

    Firebats? Firebats!??! Did that guy just say firebats are the best unit in the game? Man, you need to play Starcraft more. Firebats do con. damage, meaning they only do 50% against meduim units and 25%, repeat 25%, against large units!! And zerlings can easliy over run firebats.

    No, he said that firebats can own zerglins.

    And it's true.

    They can do 16 damage at one ling, meaning that with stim packs there are at least 3 dead lings (due to his splash damage) because of a firebat in 2 seconds. With medics, even better.

    [glow=purple]Lol, hydras'll never going to kill one zergling under dark swarm unless dark swarm disappears.

    Some people don't know how Dark Swarm exactly works...

    With melee units like firebat, zergling, zealot...etc. you can kill units under darkswarm. but ranged units? no no no. :)[/glow]

    Firebats and medics with bunkers and tanks could own that. Anyone splash unit will quick Zergling butt. I remember one game they kept doing that; my choke was blown open, but I held them off for forever with medics, firebats, and marines. Although I can't remember if I won or not :).

    Tanks sucks when the enemy atacks you with melle units, because they'll damage you as well.

    I beg your pardon?

    Good question!?!?
    Shortly zerglings rule, however there are lots of hard counters for zerglings. If your opponent has 2-3 reavers and some zealots you are practically doomed if you use a large amount of zerglings.

    In short there is no such thing as the ultimate unit, any decent player would own your ass if you try using only zerglings.

    Theres a time limit? hmm...learn something new everyday...

    Zerglings are good...at the beginning, but then they suck. Unless... your opponent has a horrible computer and you mass zerglings and lag them out! Now thats useful...and my friend did that to me once...because my computer was bad... ::eek:

    But now I can kick his butt :p

    Okay.... Lets get back to the no air factor here... Even if you get past his air units what about the Terren's ability to "LIFT" thier buildings? And the loss of scvs? Ahh just have a dropship or two handy. Pick them up and cart them off to a safe place with the buildings... So you lose a few supply depots and you have your air units. You just pick off the lings with wraiths and/or cruisers and voila you have killed all the lings and not lost one important building...
    (they don't call me Terran Commander for nothin')
    P.S. I suck at Protoss
