StarCraft has been around for 20 years (first released in 1998). StarCraft 2 came out in three different waves: 2010, 2013, and 2015. The basic gameplay, however, has been pretty much set in stone. There are pretty much three teams you can play. Terran, Zerg, and Protoss.
Terrans are the “balanced” team. Decent attack, decent defense, decent speed.
Zergs are the glass cannons. Very quick to create armies but you’d better win quickly because there’s no long-term strategy. Hit fast, hit hard, and you’d better win with that hit.
Protoss are the slow and steady team. Their basic fighters have a lot of hit points and do a lot of damage… but they take *FOREVER*. If you have forever, though, you’re going to dominate.
Well, there’s a new guy on the competitive scene who has figured out a new tactic for playing the Protoss and he’s winning with a new tactic that nobody has (yet) figured out how to fight against.
Has (that’s his handle) has turned the Protoss into a guerilla force.
Here, check this out:
If you’re not familiar with StarCraft, you might not see the big deal but, lemme tell ya: That’s *INSANE* what he’s pulling off. He’s completely changing the game.
So… what are you playing?
