Here are the details:
My skill level: a few years ago, I was a C on iCCup. In Wings of Liberty, I was a Master league player. I have played thousands of games in BW and SC2.
Races I have played in the past: I used to play Zerg in the past and I am currently playing Protoss. The only race I have never played on the ladder is Terran.
Kind of strategies I like: I like fast expend strategies (like the PvZ Bisu build), drops or mineral line harassment strategies (like the 6 mutalisk attack in ZvT). In SC2, I liked the “warp pism + warp in” attack in the mineral lines. Back in the iCCup days, I think that I used the “3 hatch hydra into 5 hatch mutas” and the “3 hatch mutas into 5 hatch hydra”.
I do not attempt strategies that rely exclusively on very high APM, such as SC2’s blink stalker rollout (teleporting each blink stalker behind the blob as its shields near zero so that I have zero losses and the enemy loses all his hydras). I do some micro in battles of course, but nothing as intense.
APM level: I only have around 95 APM average, so I focus on macro games, doing my best to follow my build order, do units, make probes, make more bases, harass a little bit (occasional drops) and do big attacks. If I remember well from the last time I played, the opponents of my skill level (those I generally play against on the ladder) are generally between 150 and 200 APM, and I sometimes win against 250+ APM opponents. I do believe that’s an indication that I make a very efficient use of my 95 APM and that I have good strategies.
I do realize that if a player had unlimited APM, the best race would be Terran (as often seen in the top of the ladder back in the last time I played), but that may not be the case with 95 APM. However, I am in my late twenties so my APM is unlikely to have a big increase.
I am thinking about coming back to the Starcraft world, but I don’t like that SC2 Legacy of the void has too many weird units and too many APM-intensive units who favor 200+ APM players, so I am considering the good old Starcraft Remastered.
I look forward to reading your thoughts!
