Im playing lt lately and doing ok, but i got owned twice by zergs....
I use terrans, an frequently do a fast wall and a drop, but i got killed twice by zerg players that use an impressive mutalisk rush.how do i defend? and even if they cant kil me because of turrets lying around my base, they make tank drop useless :(
Any pros out there that care to help?

Drop rush vs zerg wont work on land maps. Against zerg, make a depot on 8 or 9 supply, rax on 10 and another rax on 11 (dont bother walling) Then make some marines and get a factory, then an accademy. When the factory is done tech to vessels vs hydras (dont bother making tanks this early)

Keep making marines & medics with tank support. Get many vessels with irradiate researched (for lurkers, guards and masses of hydras), but keep them away from scourges. If the zerg keeps making mutas, make a bunker and 2-3 turrets by ur workers. The goal should be killing enemy expansions, either by attacking them directly or by dropping between his workers.

A fast exp vs zerg is not nessecary, but later in the game try to get as many as possible.

Counters:

M&M vs hydra or mutas
Tank support and vessels vs lurker
Firebats if he makes a lot of zerglings
Vessels with irradiate vs guardians

Also get som valkyries if he keeps making mutas in late game.
Dark swarm can be hard to counter, but as long as u micro a little and have many tanks with splash vs ultras u should be able to pull it off.

Terran vs Zerg is perfectly balanced, in Protoss vs Zerg the Zerg has a slight advantage (but its fairly balanced)

Marines, lots of marines, and some more marines. Wraiths aren't really good vs mutas. To protect ur SCVs get some bunkers in ur peon line. The thing about SC original is, its very unbalanced. TvZ is zerg favoured. In BW all races are balanced.

If u want to get fast, use hot keys.

A couple tips to help you improve:

-In the biginning, give your workers rally points to minerals
-When buidling, use the shift command to immediately get the worker on minerals when construction is complete
-Set your unit producing buildings on speedkeys. That way you can train faster while in battle.
-Never use marines without medics. (Duh)
-Although expensive, and usually late game, Valkyries work incredibly good against Mutas.

I could post many more but if I did I would be here all day. Hope that helps!

Well i found out how to conter that ****ing 10-12 mutalisk rush, i go goliath crazy, by the time the rush arrives, i got 1 turret up and 4 goliaths, then i make them patrol for the overlord drop and kill it off the air..its pretty cool

Mutas + zerglings pretty much owns golliaths... Golls own mutas only though, but its risky. Just start playing BW its much better and is much more balanced :)

silent_assassin i read all of your post and personally i don't think you have the right to tell anyone some advice really so if you would be kind enough to stay outta the conversation so we dont hear that annoying buzzin sound you make so we can all keep our sanity

manofhonor. When you get/play BW. You can/may use valkyries versing any zerg air. It rips them apart. Although they cost 250minerals 125gas. (i think).
They have 250hp and 1normal armor. So they can take a beating.
