N00B Guide


The age old adage applies in StarCraft 2 as well; practice makes perfect. Play some customs games against the computer. Play the challenges that Blizzard has put together as well to refine your strategy. They offer hotkey training and tips on unit matchups such as which units to produce if your opponent is building a specific type of army.

If you're not taking time away from ladder games and live games to slow things down, focus on specific tactics, and improve specific areas of your play you're not going to get better at StarCraft 2 at a rate you'll be satisfied with. Playing a lot of ladder games is great but they're no substitute for a controlled environment where you can repetitively hammer on specific aspects of your gameply and strategy.
