Secrets of the Master

I have just finished reading a Starcraft 2 Master Panel.  It was with Dustin Browder, Greg Canessa, David Kim and Matt Cooper who gathered to host the Starcraft 2 “Secrets of the Masters”.

From what I read they were trying not to give too much away, but they have given some of their tips for new and experienced players.  Now a lot of these I already knew but it was nice to know what I was focusing on was the right, and made me think about different parts of my own game.

I thought you would like to know these tips so I have highlighted the best bits below…..Be aware it’s a bit long, but it’s a great read!

General Advice
  • Practice makes perfect. Don’t expect to be a great player from right away. You need to practice, practice, practice
  • Don’t just play ladder games. Play custom games. Most of the pro players have friends they can try new strategies on.  Someone they can spar against.  Find some friends to play rather than just play the ladder games
  • Just focus on one race, you will never be a true master if you play on random.  Pick one and master it.
  • Don’t just play….Make sure you watch how you lost, and what they did to beat you.

More Specific Advice
  • The economy is the most important part of any game. Make sure you protect your minerals and vespene, and make sure you always have them coming in.
  • Keep building worker units…..don’t stop.  Even if you end up with 60+workers.  They’re always useful..
  • Spend your resources! don’t bank money or leave thousands in the bank….Use all your money.
  • When you start the game your strategy will dictate how much gas you collect.  Don’t collect more than you need.
  • Expand at the right time.  Known when to expand to a second or third base is very important.  If you play zerg you should expand quickly.
  • Learn the land.  Make sure you learn where all the choke points, higher ground , and walls are.  Use these to your advantage, or hold them.
  • Micromanage is key, don’t focus too much on individual units.  Make sure you keep building new units.
