    I've been re-playing the campaign on Hard and sometimes Brutal difficulty and the odds against you are really hard... :(

    ^ No sh*t, I always play on hard, and in this one that's a real challenge sometimes, when you fail to get teh right units for the mission because of wrong mission order) I wonder if it's that different from Normal setting, though...

    Yeah i have noticed the difference between Hard and Brutal. I mean some missions for example (like the junkyard mission on the Terran to collect crates to hire the mercenaries) i have noticed that most units have upgrades added on them and are more in quantity. Not to mention that Blizzard decided to drop into the mix also the units that you hire from the Mercenaries contracts as well in game to make it more difficult. As for the Zerg missions i have noticed the AI is more aggressive and has occasionally larger force and units on map with constant attack.

    dont think so, but I have played against the same person 3 times in a row, not kidding. Its like were the only ones playing at that time. Played one game, I lost; got paired again and I left as soon as it loaded; got paired again, and I won.
    I have run into people already in my friends list in a 1v1 heh.

    I did get paired up against a zerg player 3x in a row also. Iunno if you played zerg but yeah. I'm in bronze league for 1v1 so I have no idea if you play zerg or what league you were in.

    Sometimes I go for a few days without playing and sometimes I really do feel like giving up on this game :( I guess I really dont have the intelect to play RTS. I could go Terran all day long and get more wins than losses, but playing as Protoss or Zerg has got me stuck.
    I just started playing 2v2 to mix it up a bit and apparently my army sucks lulz, but we win.

    A real-life mate convinced me to finally get this so we could play together. It's certainly more enjoyable now that I'm giving it the time to learn.
    About counters, do they directly get a damage boost against what they are 'good' against?

    Not a damage boost but units do different damage to different armour types. Example Marines do more damage vs light armour than they do vs heavy armour.

    Marine spam is annoying me :bang:
    As Zerg, should I go for Banelings if they do medicav + marines?

    I'm quickly getting better (especially my micromanagement) but I'm still in the Bronze league getting pitted against Silver/Gold players in 2v2 :3eyes: One massive mistake I was making was thinking you needed a Lair to spawn the Queen (only need the Spawning Pool)! :D Opps!

    Not sure about zerg as I only play terran, banelings with zerglings should be a good counter to marines, and I think those flying gargoyle/bat thingies counter medivacs. Man I wish I had time to play multiplayer, my friend and I are too busy with work + looking for a new job.

    I had 30+ Mutalisks with level 2 damage and a mix of Hydralisks + range upgrade + level 1 damage and they all got obliterated by a massive marine spam :(

    Are marines actually over-powered or is it just a learn 2 play issue? ;)

    What does the magic box have to do with marines?

    What he should do is upgrade hydra range and get some infestors, if it's that late in the game.
