I'm not very good with my micro, and frankly, I'm not sure if the responsiveness of my machine will support good micro play (it's a very baseline machine with settings already turned down to minimum). For the average opening skirmish between 8-16 troops, am I going to struggle as Protoss? I see a lot of the higher level players utilizing multiple force fields for choke points on the attack, and more rarely, selective blink of weakened troops. Even from the standpoint of insuring your troops are deployed in a particular order (zealots, sentries, stalkers/immortals) seems to be more effort than is required with other races.
When I compare to my fellow races like the Zerg, I see a pretty straightforward effort in the early game. The Zerg are point and shoot, with Roaches and Zerglings having no special abilities or big advantages to micromanagement of battles. On the Terran side, marines and Maurauders are about as simple as you can get. (Perhaps you kite a group of Zealots, but that's about it)
- Are the Protoss fairly micro heavy in the early game?
- Can an underpowered computer limit your ability to micro in a game?
