Benefits of StarCraft II Strategy Guides
Starcraft 2 is becoming more and more popular amongst interested
gamers and many players keep asking over and over again if Starcraft strategy guides are worth the investment and will they actually help you
improve your skills. In this article I'll give you my thoughts and experiences with several SC2 strategy guides.
Even in SC II beta I already noticed someone wrote a strategy guide and I was interested to see what was in it. I immediately bought myself a copy of the guide and fortunately I picked up a good one. The thing I later learned is that not all of these guides are of the same quality so be sure to do your research before you purchase one. Anyway, the guide included a lot of different strategies you can use in Starcraft 2 to defeat your opponents, and while at first I was a bit overwhelmed, I tried to play a few matches using those exact build orders and tactics. Much to my surprise, it worked great, despite the fact I played for a few weeks before that and have previous experience with the original Starcraft title and other real time strategy games.
The tactics I used were not universally great though: in most of the matches it worked like a charm, but still sometimes I would get outplayed by a better opponent so I decided to revisit the strategy guide I got again. In the meantime it was updated and this time with a great new chapter explaining how to adapt to your opponents play style and improvise in the middle of the match. Needless to say I quickly tried it in practice and again it worked. I wasn't winning every game of course, but I kept a fairly high win rate and was consistently dominating higher ranked players.
Starcraft 2 strategy guides may not be necessary for you if you like to constantly read forums and blogs in search for information, but for those who are looking for a quicker way to learn to play guides are definitely a great option. They show you excellent and well thought out strategies, unit and building build orders, and generic tips which are invaluable and some take even months to figure out on your own. In addition, all the guides I found come with videos and replays so you can actually watch what you read as well which makes it a lot easier to learn. In conclusion, there are a lot of benefits of using Starcraft 2 strategy guides and I highly recommend you use their wisdom.
