Finally, after all my time in debate I have found the race that I’m going to main for the rest of my long climb. I had some indecision even in the final moments but I am dead set on this endeavor and have decided to play the race of Protoss. It was a hard choice, I love all the races to be quite honest but Protoss seems to be my best and also the one I strongly feel that is best suited for me.
Last night in the wee hours of the morning I decided to take 100 of my past games while playing random. A little were from this new season but most of them came from about a month ago to current. No matter how long the game was I counted all of the wins and losses for each race and then calculated the Win Loss ratio to see which race I have had the most success with. Then numbers explain the entire story.
Total Games Played: 31 Wins-Losses: 16-15 Ratio: 1.06
Total Games Played: 26 Wins-Losses: 8-18 Ratio: .44
Total Games Played: 43 Wins-Losses: 29-14 Ratio: 2.07
(Ratio is calculated by dividing wins over losses)
That win loss ratio for protoss............. it is sooooo sexy. And mind you a lot of those wins were actually PvZ wins (for me I have always struggled vZ just in general. I think the way that their mechanics work really fuck me over.) I did say that until the end I had been indecisive and well I was. I think it just was the fact that I won my MLG match in Orlando as Terran that I feel like I won’t be able to compete as Protoss at a high level. But to be honest Protoss has always been that race that has grabbed me from the get go. When I originally bought the game I was immediately drawn to how the Protoss looked and their units. I also enjoy the morals/story behind the race. They seem to fit this black and white idealism and are a culture who demand justice and peace. Although when I did buy the game, my friend who got me into it told me to play the campaign first so then I decided hey since I have been playing terran lets go with that. When I first started playing Terran it was for me like work but I still felt good about it. But when I play Protoss it is so different. It is like I am drawn to the race itself and to be honest I think their play style fits mine so perfectly. I like to think of them as a race that if you are patient and tech up, get 3-4 bases you will be unstoppable. I like the strategy behind it; to be the one defending, sitting there patiently until your unstoppable force comes into play. I don’t have the best micro but when I defend properly and macro up, I sometimes even surprise myself. Five Colossus, Unstoppable.
I think that is all I have for today, I’m gonna have to start laddering as Protoss for real and see how it fares. Hope I can brush up on my PvX since I have been playing random for so long. To all my Protoss people out there, you have a new pupil in your fold. I will learn your ways and become the most unstoppable Protoss you have/will ever see in the game. It's time.
As always guys Have Fun and Good Luck ♥
See you next week
Edit: Thanks to r.Evo, fixed the poll with more picks, if there are any others, feel free to post in comments.
Protoss is the correct choice. They so sexy. Now, go into that profile and make it clear to all that you are a true Protoss. Become the Probie you know you are. (Probe + Cookie = Probie) Also, you can only become a true pro if you choose ProToss.
Having spent most of my life on the internet, I can tell you, it gets old.

None of the options really fit for me. I struggled with my race choice a lot before I just decided I would play terran. And really the more I've played and the better I've gotten the more I've realized that I SHOULD be a protoss player based on my style. But. I can't stand playing pvp. It's honestly my favorite match-up to watch, but I can't play it. TvT is okay, so I play terran.
