Playing to Win Becoming the Champion
Ahh walling. The most classic of all Terran artforms, the barrier protecting a handful of marines and whatever else you may be planning behind it from just about everything that uses the ground to move. Although the recent innovations in TvZ have caused some to take a second look at the art, still, many masses of uninformed Terran players remain, simply unaware of the raw power and beauty that constitutes a perfectly crafted Terran wall, and as a result, the walling technique still goes drastically underused. The purpose of this guide is to encourage the usage of walling by Terran players through education and demonstration via images of premade walls. To you Zerg and Protoss fellows, fuck you you can utilize this guide as well, using the knowledge it provides to punish a leaky wall whenever you see one.
RWA Links database I have tried to assimilate as many RWA sites as I have found. In the future I plan to store them all in our site. Some are good some are bad like everything in life. Some sites are updated frecuently so more RWA's can appear. If you find a link I do not have please submit it here
[ edit ] Overview Dancing is the element of unit micromanagement by which a player delays direct engagement with the enemy for the sake of unit conservation or optimization. It requires hand speed and precision to select individual units or small groups of units in the heat of battle.
Positioning Your Army in StarCraft [ edit ] Overview In StarCraft as BOs are revealed and each side deploys, the amount of units increases drastically and each side has an Army ready to fight for the map. The ability to place this Army and use it to its fullest to control the map and fight the opponent is one of the most important skills in StarCraft. [ edit ] Factors that determine where and how to place your army
Upgrades are one way to make your units more effective than your opponent's units. Remember that the more units you have, the more cost-effective and important upgrades become. Generally, attack upgrades are more important because of the fact that attack upgrades often add more than +1 damage, whereas armor upgrades always remove one point of damage (with the exception of units with multiple hits in their attack, discussed below).
On some maps it is essential to be able to get your Workers across a Mineral Line. Some of these maps include Neo Requiem and the 2v2 map Iron Curtain . This technique exploits stacking, but is perfectly legal in all tournaments. The technique is also known as Mineral Hopping or Glitching.
The term "magic box" refers to one of the less-known peculiarities of StarCraft's game engine that allows for high level execution when understood properly. In StarCraft, a group of units will maintain formation depending on how far apart they are from each other. Said simply, if you keep your units close enough, they will stay in formation, move in formation, and cast spells in formation. If your units are too far apart, they will lose formation, converge onto one location, and try to cast spells on the same location. Sometimes you want a group of units to stay in formation, such as when blanketing the screen with Psionic Storms or when laying fields of Spider Mines. In other occasions, it may be optimal for units to clump as closely as possible -- for example, Mutalisk harassment.
+ Show Spoiler [Note] + I did not write any of this. This is a repost of some advice from ex-progamer Legionnaire which went under the radar. I believe it warrants its own thread as it deserved far more attention than it ever got. On August 03 2008 11:56 Legionnaire wrote:

I'd love to watch, but your voice is barely audible. pls work on this. any cheap headset for 10$ can produce much better sound. your audio setting might be the problem. I really want to watch this but I have to agree. I can barely hear you, no matter how loud i turn the volume your voice is the same as the Brood War music. I hope you can fix it for us, because I am really wanting to watch this. :D
