Good One, Blizzard!
Did you know that Gui Montag (The Firebat Hero in
The Campaign Editor) is closely related to Guy
Montag, a fireman hero from The Ray Bradbury
Book, "Farenheit 451"? Nice to see Blizzard
putting in a subtle joke!
You can only have 200 men max with or without food for thought.
My idea to playing Starcraft, both original and
expansion are all the same: create defense
first. If I play as Terrans, I would: harvest
enough minerals to make barracks and
supply depots. After you build about four
supply depots and two barracks, make lots of
marines. Then, build bunkers all around your
base(preferrably high elevation), and put at
least two marines in each one(depending on
their importance. Then, build an academy and
research the item that increases marine
attack range. This also allows you to train
firebats, which you should place in heavily
attacked bunkers for close attacks. Then,
build a factory and add on a machine shop.
After that, harvest enough gas to build at least
ten seige tanks. Research the siege tech
ability for the tank and set them up all around
the entrances to your base after you do that,
build a starport and get wraiths to back up
your seige tanks from air attacks. If you find
that you many of your enemies are attacking
you in certain areas, then empty your bunkers
except for one marine in each in less-attacked
areas and bring half of your seige tanks into
those areas that are threatened. After you do
that, move wraiths above the bunkers and
siege tanks. Keep at least one seige tank
between two bunkers and one wraith every
once in a while around you almost "deserted
bunkers" that you emptied before. Place one
firebat in each of the heavily attacked bunkers
to provide extra defense. This is very effective
against the Zerg, since most of them attack in
groups, where your bunkers and wraiths,
especially seige tanks, can take them out
quickly. But, as always, keep at least 3 SCV's
around to repair the splash damage from the
seige tanks and also from your enemies.
Against the protoss, though, you might need
extra air and ground defense, since they attack
in groups and are very powerful.
When you get to the second episode(Zerg) and
your getting tired of having Terran forces hit
you then run, read this!! First spawn 2 groups of
12 Zerglings. Then evolve the burrow ability.
Then put group 1 in front of that jelly stuff,
then put group 2 on the jelly stuff. make them
all burrow. Then when the enemy invades make
group 2 unborrow the enemy will go after them,
while they atack group 2, make 1 unborrow and
attack from behind. Squish!!!
Easy Win With Zerg
To beat a computer player easily with Zerg just
make Mutalisks right away as fast as you can and
make half of them Guardians and kill the spore
colonise with Guardians and then use both to kill
Better Terran D
Build supply depots in you entrance all the way
across (make sure there is no space between
them), then build bunkers behind them and fill
them with marines. Put one or two missle turrets
behind those. You can put siege tanks behind the
bunks but either leave them unsieged or get an
scv up by the supply depots to repair the splash
damage. This works even better if you upgrade
your marine's firing range.
Note: This defense works best against Protoss
computers because the zeolots if they try to
attack you wont be able to get in and will pace
in front of you defense, however dragoons will
shoot your bunkers which is why siege tanks are
nice. Also Zerglings can run through the gaps in
the Supply depots so be carefull of those, you're
also going to want to get a Science Vessel(for
cloaked units) and some type of flying attacker
because if someone cloaks a ghost and Nukes you,

To get a screenchot simply press "print screen" on your key board.
To have Zerg Music while playing press: ENTER
radio free zerg ENTER and you should hear some
music. Note: This only works for Zerg.
Protoss Drone Lure
Very quickly in the beginning build a plasma
cannon. Then send one or two of your drones to
attack the enemies. Hopefully they won't have any
defenses. Attack their scv's, drones, etc. The
computer will send them after you most likely.
Then you can lure them right back to the cannon.
This will only work in single player because in
multiplayer no one is stupid enough to chase the
Send your drones to work mining minerals and
build one more drone quickly. Then send your
overlord exploring to see where the enemy's base
is. When your drone pops up you send it to mine
until you have enough for a spawning pool (I
think its 200 minerals) and then send one drone
to become a spawning pool. Then while its
building you should get 150 minerals and you'll
have 3 lava build 3 zerglings (50 minerals each
only 2 larva is sufficient sometimes) and right
when you get them send them to the enemys base
(if you do it fast enough they shouldnt be
prepared for it). I would recommend using this
strategy on a small map Blood Bath for example or
some 64x64 map.
Wipe Out Oppostion Quickly
To wipe out a enemy quickly, first select zerg as your race, then as soon as you start build zerg lings. you wan't a whole lot, then begin hunting for your enemy's. Normally this early they won't have hardly and offense or defense.
A good way to build a crushing defense is to first place bunkers across the entrance into your base fill these bunkers, and build air to air missle defense, so you can uncover any cloaked units, then put some siege tanks behind the bunkers on siege mode, and finally some ghost's to the side.
