Know some of the Starcraft II different strategies so you can be a successful Starcraft multi player with great understanding on how to use all the different units. Be successful by learning what units to make when an army of Void Rays is rushing your base and learn how to counter most popular builds and you will surely win more often.
Even though most Terran players are likely to have Scanner Sweeps, it does not imply that the Dark Templars you build will be ineffective. The truth does not come even close to this.
Destroy the Hatchery so as not to let them create an Overseer
Use at least 3 or more Dark Templars to overcome Lair before an Overseer exists.
Overseer detects Dark Templars, so using them alone may not overthrow Zergs. Conduct a surprise attack and kill as many Drones as you can and destroy the Hatchery.
Dark Templars need assistance from your regular units, they will certainly adds up to bring down Zergs economy.

From Blizzard Entertainment
Blizzard Entertainment has always taken cheating in any form in Blizzard games very seriously, and that's no different for StarCraft II. If a StarCraft II player is found to be cheating or using hacks or modifications in any form, then as outlined in our end user license agreement, that player can be permanently banned from the game. This means that the player will be permanently unable to log in to Battle.net to play StarCraft II with his or her account.
Here I will provide a breakdown of all the important maths focused on upgrades and combat.
Say you keep asking yourself:
"Should I upgrade weapons or armor first?"
"Is it worth my 100 gas to get combat shields?"
"Does it make a difference if I spend my money upgrading? or should I just get more units?"
Take a look here, maybe you will find answers to those questions.
This is part of an ongoing series where we'll highlight features of the StarCraft II community site. This time we're exploring one of the most useful tools on the community site: the search feature. Let's fire it up!
Here are the three main issues:
Improved Matchmaking for Teams
While the matchmaking system as a whole is looking very strong, one area we identified for improvement was matchmaking for arranged teams that were still in placement matches. We found these first few matches for arranged teams were giving them an unfair advantage against their opponents. Since so many new arranged teams were being created every day, this was resulting in a noticeable amount of imbalanced matches for team games. The corrections we've made should show an improvement for many team players, especially in the sub-Gold leagues.
From Blizzard Entertainment:
We just wanted to remind you that the first ever StarCraft II Custom Map Contest will be drawing to a close on September 11, 2010. If you’re hoping for a chance to have your map featured at BlizzCon, win a trip to the convention, and score a cool $5,000 in the process, then put the finishing touches on your map and submit it before the deadline.
Read the contest page to learn more -- don't miss out on your chance for glory!
From Blizzard Entertainment:
As part of our ongoing efforts to foster a productive and happy StarCraft II mapmaking community, we recently asked players to share their thoughts and ideas on how the custom map system might be improved. Some mapmakers noted that the current limits placed on custom map publishing felt too restrictive and, as a result, made their mapmaking experience less enjoyable.

How are the 16 participants selected?
The Blizzard Entertainment eSports team will consider several discretionary factors when selecting participants for the Invitational. This might include your overall performance on the SEA/ANZ Battle.net, your rank within your home country, and any tournaments you might have won. The invitees won’t necessarily reflect the top 16 ranked players. As the region is very diverse, our plan is to ensure that every country is properly represented by players at a highly competitive skill level.
• Mouse buttons cannot be set for Push to Talk.
• Thor CE is not being displayed when the player has the proper flags.
• Campaign Achievement completion stops at 99%.
• The hotkey for Surrender is inconsistent.
• Mac - Pressing the § / tilde key could crash the game client.
• Losing your internet connection while loading a map will not warn you that connection to Battle.net has been lost.
We’ll be performing rolling restarts on all StarCraft II servers at approximately 5:00am SGT and 7:00am AEST, September 2nd, which may cause some interruption in communication, ability to log in, use of in-game features, and disconnections. We anticipate the restarts will take approximately 120 minutes to complete.
