Is it just me or do zerg kinda like suck in this game... they were given no unit to replace the guardian, their anti air blows. In mid-late game i cant do anything unless against bad players. They cant simply equal the fire power of the terran and toss. Is there something im missing or should i just stop using them. Also i've played online like 20 games and have seen no zerg players besides myself. Please leave posts thanks =)

The reason is casual players simply cannot keep up with all the new CRAP abilities they have to keep spamming as Zerg in order to macro, whereas Terran and Protoss is very much like it was in BW. The zerg needs like triple the APM of the T or P because he has to keep manually spamming creep tumors, creep with overlords, and larva with queens, all while trying to actually...play the game....with his army.

On the other hand, T is like just make a bunch of barracks and hotkey them to one or two keys, and spam A, R, and D...

Honestly, I'd recommend stop using them.

The Zerg in SC2 is broken and always has been.

They are weak in so many ways, especially to anyone less than like 200 APM.


I don't know what else to say about it, if you have to be a better player for a matchup to be "balanced" then it isn't balanced after all.

Even so, wasnít Zerg considered to be much stronger on the Korean side?

Welcome to Terran in SC:BW

just because one race is harder on noob levels doesnt mean its weak, terran was the same way in bw - hard for those who are not progamers

and imho, zerg in sc2 cant rely so much on brute force, like you could have in some situations in sc. a lot of new abilities changed zerg for sure.

@op.

Zerg are weak in certain areas, but certainly not in the ones you mentioned.
Zerg have a very strong anti-air.
The unit that replaces the guardian is the broodlord and is 20x better than the guardian.
The key to mid-late game success is high tier, I.E. Broodlords or Ultralisks.

I am a zerg player, and even 90% of the games I know, that if I survive until broodlords, I win.
Also, in SC2 I have a tiny apm (~70) yet, I still manage to do everything I need to, so that point about 200 apm+ is crap.

Zerg are a very strong race if you know how to use them.
so.. Just Learn to play dude.
