Thread: StarCraft TheZergoSaurus

  1. #1

    Exclamation StarCraft TheZergoSaurus

    StarCraft Thesaurus
    Always wondered why people talk about large diamond engraved
    neckalces and europeean mountain ranges when they talk strategy?
    Me too, thus I want to pile up a thesaurus for those who wonder
    what these strange words seemingly out of context mean.

    Help me fill in things I have missed or defined wrong. Will add by editing to keep it all in one place.

    GENERAL

    AC = Allied Control

    AOE = area of effect

    APM = actions per minute

    Cheesing = Risky unconventional strategy designed to take your opponent by surprise.
    Mostly in the form of early rushes where you build in or around your opponents base.

    Choke = Choke-point.
    A narrow area of the map where ground units are forced to pack together resulting in less combat power.

    Corn = High Yield Minerals

    Expansion = a resource node other than the main, can also be called Expo for short.

    FE = Fast Expand

    gg = Good Game
    Polite ending of a game. Usually said first by the losing player(s).

    glhf = Good Luck, Have Fun
    Polite start of a game.

    Gold Expansion = an expo with high-yield (yellow) minerals

    Hard [unit] = a player building lots of one unit.
    examples: hard ground, hard air, hard robo, hard M&M, hard zergling, ect...

    Main = Starting Base of any player.

    Natural = Closest and most ideal expansion

    Resource Node = a location containing minerals and gas

    Turtling = Defensive strategy.
    A strategy where you create a defensive shell around your base, effectivly making the enemy suffer major losses, opening his base for an attack.
    The turtler usually has a small yet mobile army to poke the opponent now and then.
