    Default Researchers Model Which StarCraft Race Would Win

    I just thought this would make a cute and interesting read for some of you.

    Aaand sold.

    Be it through hallowed grounds or lands of sorrow
    The Forger's wake is bereft and fallow

    Is the residuum worth the cost of destruction and maiming;
    Or is the shaping a culling and exercise in taming?

    The road's goal is the Origin of Being
    But be wary through what thickets it winds.

    Going by competitive matches is just wrong. There's an uneven distribution of racial pros with the majority choosing Terran, and 500 matches would be an uneven amount of TvP, ZvP, and TvZ recorded. I'd say their data is likely a bit skewed in Terran's favor, because lore-wise the Zerg would be the clear winners if the UED had never been involved.
