I have no idea about anything in this game, it just seems interesting and I'd like to find a relevant guide.

Point form:


Play games to get bare bones, hot keys, workers, supply, spending money

Main a race

Sc2 rep.com ----> download replays from pros in long games, then copy first 10 minutes on a notepad, writing down food supplies and benchmarks

Practice builds vs ai till you can get it similar to what they did in the replay

Take your three builds to the ladder

Win every single game besides some cheeses

Build up your cheese defence knowledge by seeing what they're doing and figuring out how you could do your build and still stop it, if you can't then ask here or in game chats

Win lots of games

Become grandmaster

go look up a guy on youtube named "Day 9" and watch his beginner videos.

Play the computer alot before you play people.

Do not think the campaign will get you ready for multiplayer.

Do not play the 50 practice matches they give you on special maps before doing placement. The maps have more rocks and makes it difficult to really get a feel for the game, because it gets you in the habit of turtling too much, and trying to max out before attacking. It also really prevents you from learning how to do rushes, or to deal with rushes.

Yeah, Every game now I tend to turtle and max out(im bronze and crap) because of the practice matches. Though I prefer 2vs2 anyway so it isn't as big a deal. My biggest problem is map control and I think that's down to the practice matches aswell.
