Starcraft 2 Protoss 1v1 Guide – Quick Tips For More Wins

In this quick Starcraft 2 Protoss 1v1 Guide, I will be discussing the best strategies to use versus each race. Read on to discover the best way to win more games as Protoss!

Vs. Other Protoss Players

One of the best strategies to use in a mirror match (Protoss vs Protoss) is to get a mixture of Zealots, Sentries, and Immortals. Do not give the enemy an opportunity to build any Void Rays and there will be no need to worry about getting anti-air units.

Build 2 Gateways and start pumping out Zealots and Sentries. Go in when you have a dozen units total. From there, keep pressure up and build Immortals. Make sure your Zealots and Sentries cover for your Immortals and do not let enemy units get too close to your large units. Zealots and Sentries punish any Protoss ground combination (except for Colossi), and your Immortals will be able to chew up any Colossi and Stalkers.

Vs. Terran Players

Against Terran players, you will need to quickly go for Colossi and Immortals. Terran players will universally start with either Reapers or MMM (Marines, Marauders, and Medivacs, though Medivacs may not always be present). Either of these unit combination will chew up Zealots as Reapers are very fast and Marauders have an attack which slows afflicted units. You will need to get Colossi to kill MMM quickly, and you will need Immortals later in the game to kill any Siege Tanks added to the mix.

The longer the game runs on, the more Immortals you will need. Stop building Colossi if the Terran player stops building Marines; keep building Colossi if Marines stay prevalent. Remember that Vikings cannot attack Immortals unless they land, Immortals quickly demolish Vikings on the ground, and Stalkers are very effective versus flying Vikings.

Dark Templar can also be used to supplement your army later in the game. Just remember that the key point of this Starcraft 2 Protoss 1v1 guide is that the Immortal and Colossus are the units that will allow you to win versus Terran players.

vs. Zerg Players

Against Zerg players, you will be best off building an early biological army consisting of Zealots and Sentries. You will then need to adjust your game plan based off what the enemy is building. If the enemy is going Roaches, get a few Immortals. Two or three Immortals can take out an entire army of Roaches!

If the enemy is massing Hydralisks (a very common strategy), you will need a few Colossi. You may need to get a few Stalkers to protect your Colossi from Corruptors at this point (keep an eye on what the enemy is building). If the enemy builds Mutalisks, know that the Phoenix is extremely effective versus light air units like the Mutalisk.

In short, if the enemy has Hydralisks and Corruptors, build Colossi, Stalkers, and Sentries. If the enemy has Roaches, Hydralisks, or other ground units without air support, build Immortals, Colossi, Zealots, and Sentries. If the enemy has mostly air units, build Stalkers, Sentries, and a few Phoenixes.

Against Zerg players there is not a sure-fire plan I can commit to in this Starcraft 2 Protoss 1v1 guide; you will need to adapt based off of what the enemy is doing.

Starcraft 2 Battlecruiser Counter – Tips for All Races

One of the most common complaints that players have when trying to take on Terran is trying to find a good Starcraft 2 Battlecruiser counter. The truth is that this unit is actually quite easy to stop with the right unit choice. In this article, I have revealed the best counters for this unit.

As a Terran player, you should have a very easy time stopping the Battlecruiser. There is only one unit that is effective at doing so: the Viking. This unit does bonus damage to armored units.

Three Vikings will beat a Battlecruiser any day, even if the Battlecruiser uses its Yamato Cannon. If you see the enemy player getting Battlecruisers, put a reactor on your Starport and start turning out Vikings. The best thing about Vikings though is that their high speed and range allow you to attack Battlecruisers from a safe distance, so those with good unit control can fight them without getting hit.

As a Zerg player, you can take Battlecruisers head on with the Corruptor unit. No other unit in the Zerg army can stand up to a Battlecruiser, so if you see Battlecruisers enter the field, you have to get the Corruptor.

The high armor of the Battlecruiser significantly reduces Hydralisk damage, so must get some Corruptors. Be sure to use the Corruption ability to make it a complete rout as the extra damage goes a long way on big units.

Protoss players actually have the toughest time facing Battlecruisers. The Protoss army does not have a good enough air superiority unit to use against the BC. The truth is that the Phoenix actually is very, very weak against the BC.

The Phoenix has two attacks, each of which does 5 damage. Both of these attacks are mitigated by the BC’s natural 3 armor, reducing the damage by 60 percent. This renders the Phoenix essentially useless versus the Battlecruiser. Void Rays are not the best choice either due to their high cost and their propensity to be taken out by Yamato Cannon.

As a Protoss player, you are best off opting for Stalkers. Stalkers do decent damage to

BCs and are a soft counter. However, you can run into trouble if you try to fight BCs which have gathered above a wall or are attacking from the side of your base. You cannot afford to fight them unless all of your Stalkers are in range.

One good way to get your Stalkers in range is to use the Blink ability and Blink your Stalkers underneath the Battlecruisers. Another thing you should do is to add a few Sentries to the mix and use the Guardian Shield ability. By combining the two units, you will have a great Starcraft 2 Battlecruiser counter.

The first of lottery scratch off secrets you should learn is to make sure that you check all your winning numbers with a lottery retailer. Scratch off games are becoming more and more complicated and include much more pictures. The reason why the lottery does this is because they are hoping you miss out on a winner. There are many lottery scratch off games that are 3 or 4 games in one. This cause you to pay more attention to see if you won, therefore making it easier for you to miss a winning combination. Have no idea how many times I have found winners thrown away in my store. My son used to love collecting all the lottery tickets that people would throw away in my store and have me check if they were winners. There was even a few times my son found a $100 winning ticket.

If you can keep a schedule of exactly how much you played each day then that would be even better. If you do win a big lottery prize I would recommend you consult your tax advisor.
