It's a shame that they weakened psy-storm like they did....

I think it's also fair to not expect Micro to overcome larger armies as much as it it did in the original starcraft. The AI is just better. This makes Macro more important in SC2 than before. It's a better balance and makes for more interesting battles as forces tend to have more interesting compositions and counters, and expand the skillsets required to become good at the game.

Seems silly, but somehow I missed the pull down that lets you do this.

comment How to deal with 2v2 rushes?
You'll have the advantage of being closer to your means of production. I concur that cheese style rushes (10 pool or a cannon rush) are probably a special case that my answer does not cover it. But 6 minutes into the game is far enough to have something to bring together to fend things off. It's a close call, and we definitely have experienced and find these style of attacks difficult.

comment How to counter marine rush as a protoss on maps with huge ramps like Scrap Station?
I swear I had read that the animation was accurate (enemy units within the globe are unaffected), and I still want to test this out in the unit tester, but I'll go with this for now. If it were the case, obviously keeping a gap between the marines and your zealots is a tricky affair.

comment Is micromanagement of early units “required” by Protoss?
Alright, I'm convinced that other races benefit from micro, and see the point about force fields not being necessary at the lower levels as it's been made twice now. Unfortunately, my PC is lagging enough to mess up my micro at the early stages and it does struggle from time to time with the larger battles. (oddly enough, if I survive to the later game though, I'm usually fine because my macro game is pretty good) I'm beginning to think I'm not troop building enough.
