Easiest Race for Beginner

#1SciverPosted 5/2/2010 12:11:32 AM

I am new to Starcraft in general and I have been trying to play as the Zerg (getting beat badly)in the Starcraft 2 beta. I was wondering which race people think is the easiest for a beginner? Thanks.

Hm. If you are new to RTS in general, there isn't really a good race for anything. If you aren't, and lets say you played Warcraft, i think Protoss would be best... they are a lot more micro intensive which you needed in Warcraft, so that should transfer over well..

Zerg is actually a fairly hard beginner race, because 1) You don't know effective build orders for either rushing or macroing, 2) I still can't remember to spawn Larva everytime my Queen has energy.. it's kinda sad..

Terran is the other race that you could probably start off with pretty easy. If you've watched any of the replays at all, you know that just going Marines, Maurders and Medivacs will pretty much win you most games. it's just the macroing of all those units and remembering to upgrade..

Maybe Protoss. It plays the most similar to typical RTS.

Terran? Humans tend to be the middle of the road race. Starcraft 1 and Starcraft 2 are both starting out with the Terran campaign anyways.

definitely not zerg, they're probably the hardest to start with and they're the most different of the three. I go terran, they're really versatile.

Terran. Just spam marines, marauders, and medivacs and you should be good for most games.

Zerg and protoss both require more dynamic teching and countering, as well as higher APM (individual protoss units often have extra abilities to use and Zerg will usually have more bases, requiring more larva and unit management.
