comment Fast Expanding with Zerg
If you see your opponent building his expansion, you should go attack it. Start your own expansion just before you leave to attack.

comment What's the best counter for Protoss Carriers?
I have to agree that if you let a player get far enough to have a sizable number of carriers, he was going to win anyway. I only build carriers/mothership as an additional insult when I'm already winning, because they really are not cost effective units.

comment How do I remember which units counter which in StarCraft 2?
But the Ghost out-ranges both of the Templar's abilities, plus one Ghost can nullify multiple Templars, and not the other way around. The only situation where a Templar would "beat" a ghost is if the Terran player isn't paying attention. I can't think of any other pair of units that has such a large advantage for one of them in the entire game unless you count something like a Zergling and an air unit.

There IS at least one hard counter I can think of, which is Ghost vs. High Templar.

comment Which Starcraft 2 hotkey set should I use?
They are made for the left hand, but using the regular setting has a few odd ones out that are more difficult to reach, such as 'I' for Immortal.

comment How precisely does the StarCraft 2 handicap feature work?
What about Protoss units? Are the shields reduced by a percentage as well?

comment How does a Terran player stop a cannon rush from Protoss?
This won't work. A probe can spawn buildings faster than you can kill them with your workers. You should try to surround and kill the probe instead.

comment What is “ganking”?
In World of Warcraft I've always heard the term being used as being killed by a single enemy player. I think it just means being ambushed unexpectedly where one side has the surprise advantage.

comment When should I build a Stalker as my first unit over a Zealot, and why?
Great advice. To add to this, I personally prefer to skip the first zealot against Terran, but get it against Zerg. The first zealot is absolutely necessary to block your choke to prevent early zerglings from getting into your mineral line, but doesn't offer much help against any early terran units since they are all ranged.

comment What is Smurfing in online games?
Just as a side note, I think Blizzard does have some measures in place to thwart most smurfing attempts. My friend intentionally lost all his placement matches, putting him in Bronze league, but then game placed him in Platinum after only a few wins. I'd be curious to know how they were able to detect this so quickly.

comment How can I earn lots of gold?
Just a comment, while the items at the top of the market sell reliably and quickly, they are usually not worth going out of your way to farm. Relics of Ulduar are extremely common because of the number of people doing heroics, but going on a trip specifically to farm them is not the best use of your time. I see them more as something you're going to end up getting anyway and it's just a nice perk to also be able to sell them at the end of the day.

comment Are there any handy tricks for ousting insane AI opponents?
Are the insane AI computers smart enough to focus fire the carriers themselves rather than attack the interceptors?

comment What exactly is a “cheese” in Starcraft 2?
I can't see worker rush seriously working, unless maybe in conjunction with double 6 pool zerg.

comment As a Terran, what's a good counter to early Mutalisks?
Stimmed marines are the answer to pretty much every light air unit, as well as void rays.

comment How do I counter double-terran in 2v2 with zerg?
Just out of curiosity, if the Terran makes a solid wall with no supply depots, how is he getting his units in and out of his base? Constantly lifting the barracks up and down, or sitting and waiting until Medivacs? Either way, if they've trapped themselves in their base you might as well take advantage of your map control and win the game.
