Which Race Should I Play?

The topic appears again and again in StarCraft community forums: “Which race should I play?” It’s a fair question.

From StarCraft Pro Gamer to a Seat at Blizzard: TheBOy Interview

With StarCraft: Remastered launching on August 14, it’s never been a more appropriate time to look back on almost two decades of StarCraft history.

Unit Spotlight: Protoss

Sophisticated psionic biology. Gilded technology that defies the laws of space and time. If the Protoss are arrogant, as their detractors claim, can you blame them? They were cruising the galaxy in golden superships when humans were still digging in the dirt for grubs.
