The Sentry and the Colossus. I find the two units insanely boring. The sentry with its force field slows down the momentum of the game tremendously and I hate how my T1 army is completely balanced around the ability of the sentry to slow down the pace of the game to a crawl so I can tech to Colossus. While sometimes sentry play can be very 'awesome', I just wish my gateway units were more powerful so that there would be more micro involved rather than just splitting armies apart.
That leads me to my complaint against the Colossus: It's boring, and IMO overpowered. I don't like how my army almost always revolves around 3-4 gigantic monoliths that are the center point of every battle. I hate how the Protoss army is designed as a meatshield so that the Colossus can do the DPS. Zealots? Meatshield against marauders. Stalkers? Meatshield. Sentry? FF. Void Ray? Meatshield against corruptors. Phoenix? Viking Killer. I hate how little micro there is in a Pv matchup aside from dancing colossi, and making force fields.
It might just be me, but while I see a bunch of other races doing very awesome micro, I simply don't see many Protoss players executing the precise micro that makes the game exciting. This may be inherent in the nature of the Protoss race, but the utter lack of micro (in my opinion) in many cases makes playing Protoss very bland.
If anybody watched my stream for the 1-2 months I actually streamed, I'm sure they would know about how much I fucking despise PvP. In my opinion, it's the worst matchup. I don't know whether it has changed since the patch (I really doubt it has), but PvP has always been a shitload of bad Protoss players that just cheese, and win because they can cheese. Whether it's cannon rushing, blind luck proxy gates, or just some dumb Korean 4 gate all in. PvP is just overall a fucking terrible matchup. If it gets to late game, it just becomes some retarded colossus war, and the game is almost always decided by one battle because it's impossible to replace colossus quickly enough to defend a push from the opposing player who both has colossus and a fresh warp in of units. The fact that a '4 warpgate challenge' thread exists on TL is a testament to the stupidity of PvP and Protoss in general.
Terran to me feels like something new and fresh. I might get tired of playing Terran soon, but for now, it's amazing. I love trying to micro, multitask, harass, do different builds and just experiment to see what works.
I've played probably 25-30 games of Terran since switching races a few days ago and most of them (if not all) are in this rep pack!
All aptly named based on my experiences in game!
Stuff I've tried to varying degrees of success are 12/14 Rax in TvZ, different Hellion Drops in TvP/TvT, Marine/Raven/Banshee in TvP, and maybe some other random shit. Criticism is welcome.
As far as playing goes, I actually have no idea what is right in TvZ or TvT. TvP I have a bit of an idea of, but the other two matchups I have done no research on so in just about every game I'm just winging it based on what seems logical/cool.

Oh yeah, and if you want to watch me fail at Terran, explain what I'm doing and the logic behind it,(and probably rage once in a while) I'm going to start streaming again!
