Micromanagement sucks IMO. Playing Lost Temple or other maps like that requires too much thinking and planning. I play SC to get rid of the 'shits' in my mind. I play SC for fun, not for tournaments or anything. I think having mass blood battles is more fun than little whimpy ones.

I prefer Macro, because if you suck at Macroing, you won't even have the units to Micro properly.

^^ I'm always Zerg so I guess that would explain my choice.

I find micromanagement easier than macro since it just comes naturally to me. I find myself almost always trying to control my units so they don't die. Whether I'm toss or zerg. As for the poll, I prefer micro, but I rather do both.

I prefer micro, and as for macro, I hotkey my buildings so that I can constantly pump out units even when I'm micro'ing.
And since TvZ depends on marines' actions, I find myself putting more effort into micro than macro, but both of em are important, really.

Well it's not that I don't Micro, it's impossible to win against anyone who's any good if you don't. It's more like.. I worry about Macroing more, a lot more, but I wouldn't run my lings at someone's base in a straight line (omg that happens so often :p).

I'm a macro person. I used to be big on the whole micromanagement thing (especially when I played both WC3 and SC... WC3 refines your micro skills a lot), but since I started playing again, I've been strictly macro for all three races. It's been working pretty well for me, so I think I'll stick with it.

Micro: Moving marines so they dodge lurker spikes. Running Hydralisks away from Zealots right after the hydras fire.
Macro: Building stuff. Taking resource nodes.

If you can do both, you are cool.

Also, using any special abilities is part of Microing.

I'm better off at micro than at macro, I'm afraid :-/

hah I'm trying to learn how to micro and macro at the same time. Reallyyy hard. I keep forgetting my hot keyed buildings.
 
I voted micro.

Zerg NEEDS to micro when vsing Protoss, otherwise their units get slaughtered. The Hydras need to be microed in order to harass the Zealots/Dragoons, otherwise you are merely feeding a growing fire.

The only units I ever really micro with are big ground/air units (Carriers, Dragoons, Goliaths) and sometimes Zealots. I also arrange my hordes of Zerg units before I attack, but that could be considered macromanagement at best; I rarely attack without tons of units.

speedlots easily catch up to hydras.
Except hydras outrange zealots by a country mile. Just press 'a' , click on the zealot than retreat a bit. I do this with goons vs zealots/marines/firebats all the time. Carriers vs golitahs with the help of terrain sometimes. I don't do this much with zerg since I'm strictly zvt and zvz with zerg.

Dodging storms with hydras is also micro, but I don't play zvp.

macro i guess

nothing strikes more fear into an enemy's heart than seeing 100 cracklings coming your way :)

and most of the games i play, you have so many units or such powerful units that it wouldn't matter for me (UMS).
