I've looked and looked for a Race poll and I haven't found one.  So I took it upon myself to make the official SC2 Giant Bomb race poll.


Mods, sticky this please.

I usually play Terran. That's what I've played since the beginning, and since everyone now plays Protoss, I have all the more reason to play them.

#4 Posted by Kyreo (4600 posts) -

I forgot to say, I play Zerg.  Creep runs DEEP in my veins.

Toss for me. Tried Zerg and just found it overwhelming. Blink my way to victory :D

Terran, since '99.

I gotta say that I've look at Protoss regularly since the release of SC2.  I just know that switching now would involve me getting demolished on the ladder, so I'm kind of discouraged.

But man, warping in a DT with a warp prism would be so friggin' bad ass...

I haven't seen that before!  Jesus that is funny.  I feel like there should be a unit that screams like that when it is made.

I usually play Zerg, but can also play Protoss pretty well. I want to get better at Terran so I can Random, but I just don't have the passion to play a lot of games as Terran. I wish there was a Random button for just Protoss/Zerg :P.

Protoss cause it's the easiest lol. Not like balance wise, but just mechanics is easier and when I was learning the game that's what I was looking for in a race. Zerg always looks so cool but I'm too lazy to race switch and relearn...maybe for HotS.

You should totally switch.  Being a zerg feels so good.  You know you want to.

I am a proud Zerg turtler.

All the zergs I've met seem like the unhappiest people ever when playing the game. During game they're all stressed out cause there's so much shit to do, and out of game they spend all their time bitching about how the game is "imba"

The game is kind of imba in Terrans favor but I'm not one to bitch.  I am a happy zerg, I love being a zerg, and I love multitasking Queen injections, creep tumors, and fast expansions.  

Once again, you should join us.  We have banelings.

I feel like it's more toss favored now and I play toss lol. Maybe just cause everyone on ladder PVT still goes marine/medivac and I just fast tech to collossus and autowin, but idk. People need to make ghosts more vP, that shit is ridiculous. Fuck Banelings, collossi beat everything.

Also, I don't want to have to raise my APM to keep up with multitasking...I play SC2 to relax, not to stress myself out more lol.
#19 Posted by ReyGitano (2467 posts) -

I never thought I would play Zerg after Starcraft where I mainly played Protoss, but I really enjoy playing Zerg in Starcraft II. Go figure.

I am not denying the awesomeness of Banelings. I'm also surprised you're not agreeing with me and bitching about Collossus right now lol.

edit- and you'd probably beat me no problem lol

Protoss.


I played Terran in the Beta and after release but decided to switch becuase I HATED TvZ. Now I'm hating PvZ. 
I HATE YOU ZERG!

Random is the only acceptable answer. Anything else is a compromise.

Brotoss for life

#29 Posted by tunaburn (1891 posts) -

im protoss since ive been them since sc1. but i want to switch to terran. just dont want to get my ass destroyed while i practice

#30 Posted by jorbear (2517 posts) -

I roll random when I play Team Play. However, in 1v1, I play Terran.

#31 Posted by Ben_H (3366 posts) -

Protoss on my main account.  Random/Zerg on my second account.  Zerg is more fun than Protoss if you don't get cheesed, which they feel so much more susceptible to.  ZvT is so much fun.

... eww, you should maybe get that looked at. ;D

Protoss. I never played BW enough at a good enough level for my mechanics to be anything less than terrible, so I'm pretty bad at making sure I constantly produce units. Which is kind of the reason why Zerg and Protoss work out better for me, as they are slightly more lenient in that regard.

However, that doesn't stop me from rolling Random in team games, and dragging everyone down with me when I roll Zerg! :3
#33 Posted by eldiax (632 posts) -

Protoss, but I really like playing Zerg so I play Zerg on 2v2 ladder, because points there aren't that important to me.

#34 Posted by imsh_pl (3296 posts) -

I think the last tournaments pretty much say which race is played the most.

Fuck I hate PvP.

#35 Posted by Jimi (1126 posts) -

Diamond zerg usually. However sometimes after a few beers I queue as toss and just 4gate everyone, it goes surprisingly well.

#36 Edited by Riddell (342 posts) -

Protoss, but I wouldn't mind switching to Zerg just so that I could be like Spanishiwa.


P.S. Can someone give me a list of pro Protoss players?

Brotoss, coz I'm a total baller.

#47 Posted by _Horde (839 posts) -

I began playing with Terran, 'cos of the campaign and all. Switched to protoss because they got some cool stuff!

@imsh_pl: No expo, just some bumpy 3gate (or 4? can't remember) blinkstalker build, one minute later and i would've been fucked i think
