So, since my last competition was pretty much a discussion, I'll now close that and move over to this general colony discussion (the others are all specific)

TALK ABOUT ANYTHING RELATED TO COLONY (and beef burgers)

Scouts?
Sakata MII fodder.

Something that someone used to take me at surprise on a 1 vs 1.

I don't like 1 vs 1s compared to 2 vs 2s, but i know that it's more strategic and limits teching or you lose against rushers with no one to defend but yourself.
How about the scouts?

If your opponent has a manufactory then they're pointless because sakata mk II destroys scouts no matter what army size they are. In medium numbers infantry are good counter if you only have an outpost.

Likewise, every unit has a counter. Which is why it is best to cover each other units' weaknesses before attacking.

Personally I think Phantoms are better against the units you just said dudeguy.

Jerry, could you refrain from posting so much?

Well, let's have a debate.
Are groditz/phantoms worth how much resources it takes to make them?

I'm not a groditz guy. In a mass against infantry, they prevail. Also, recently, I find phantoms are very tough.

Groditz are owned by tanks, phantoms, and missles.
Mass groditz is easily countered by one black queen.

Groditz own infantry.
They're good backup defense units.

Their good just for support. Get some tanks, air units, a dozen marines and you got a decent offense.

And your opponent gets some hovertanks, chronite tanks, and sakatas and you can an even better defence.

Hover tanks and Sakatas are probably the strongest combo.
