Q u o t e: Or maybe I haven't played this game enough to figure out the true balance of this game everyone is talking about........ ..... ..............
Stop playing #%**ty maps.
ANYONE who is speaking about SC balance, and refering to the competitive side is talking about real maps, not 'Fastest' maps. Fastest maps are a joke, and about as recreational as you can get.
Edit - Not trying to leave you hanging... if you are interested in actually learning how to play SC, I'd recommend traveling over to www.teamliquid.net and looking through the boat loads of resources, replays, and VODs of professional players.
