I'm wondering how to micro siege tanks in different modes. For example,
1. When you are harassing another Terran with siege tanks:
The best option is to avoid that and make a drop to undefended part, but if he brought own tanks under your expand and you need to protect expand?
In this case it would be good to bring you tanks till the 12-13 range of opponents tanks (they won't be able to shoot your while sight is not provided for them) and get sight from the own site... But this is often hard to do...
Another option would be good to have some banshees/BCs (if opponent doesn't have too much vikings). But if opponent has? use Ravens+SeekingMissiles?
Or push with stimmed marauders? Thors?
What suites best for this case?
2. Does it makes sense to play with tanks range?
For example, opponent has 6-8 tanks in groups that are in few rows (1st row - 3 tanks, a little bit behind - 3 more tanks...) Is it reasonable to try to put your tanks in range but out of sight of opponent tanks?
This seems reasonable if you have air superiority, but requires a lot of micro... and actually is a little bit risky (he can scan you and kill easily while you tanks are not in siege mode yet).
If this seems reasonable, what is amount of tanks you need to bring to be successful with that?
3. Can you make another example and solution for that?
offense, defense, combat, drop, etc...
Any ideas are welcome. Thanks a lot
P.S. I'm interested in advises for Platinum/Diamond player level.
