Learn Some Starcraft Strategies to Help You Play Better

Jul 9, 2008
When playing the Starcraft game you have to make strategic moves and this means knowing which strategies work and which don't. However, there are so many Starcraft strategies that you really have to work through them and learn from your mistakes for the next game you play. There are different strategies to sue when you are playing the part of a Terran, a Protoss and a Zerg. The best place to start before getting into all of these is with general strategies for playing the game.

One of the most important elements of any strategy game is Recon and this is true of Starcraft. You have to locate the enemy and spy on them so that you know their every move. The key is to locate extension towns and destroy them as soon as you find them. You must always have counter forces available to meet the forces of your opponents, but you also have to destroy the forces of your opponents.

It is common to send out a worker as a scout. While this is dangerous in a single player game, it is a good strategy to use in multiplayer games because you teammates will cover you. You can also make a team decision about who to attack and when once you locate the enemy in a multiplayer game. When you are playing the game as a Zerg, it is common practice to send out an Overlord to scout the map early in the game. Since Overlords move very slowly, it may be a wiser decision to send out Drone instead. This will also mean that you have to arrange protection for the members of your scouting party.

As a Zerg player, you can also park your Overlord player over an enemy town very early in the game. This is a good strategy because in order for the Protoss to attack an Overlord they have to build a Dragoon or a Photon Cannon. You can have your Overlord sit and watch them for a while. If you are playing the part of a Protoss player, it is wise strategy to get rid of the Overlord as soon as possible because as soon as the Zerg player sees that you are ready to make a move, he/she will move the spy to higher ground. Overlords do not pose a threat to Terrans because they can use a Marine to eliminate the Overlord. Zerg players have to wait until they have a Hyradlisk in place. When you encounter an Overlord, you need to try to move under it as soon as possible before you attack because this increases your chances of killing it. The loss of a single Overlord early in the game will harm a Zerg strategy.

Keeping your eye on the enemy is a strategy you should use at all times in the game. You can make periodic checks on the town to see what the enemy is doing or building and what units they have available to see if you can determine the strategy they intend to use.
