We all like lurker drops and reaver drops... marine drops with stim pack have delighted terran players many times. Sometimes tank drop can be the most annoying. so now is the time to choose: which is the best?

I enjoy the "Nuke Drop", but it rally only works well VS Terran or Toss, as the Zerg have those damned Overlords. I like to micro manage too much, Im more of a tactical player than a masser thats what makes me "bad" at SC.

That's why you chase them away with Wraiths or Valkyries

Anyway, I always liked the Hyrdalisk drop myself(pre-expansion anyway, I didn't hardly play online after the expansion came out). But since that isn't an option, I'll go with nuke drop And if your fighting Protoss run a Science Vessel in and do an EMP to weaken their Nexus enough for the Nuke to destroy it

Reaver drops are the best. They just own workers.

Where the fuck is the templar drop? I use that one all the time! Such an effective drop to kill workers. Combine it with a couple archons or dts and the work is quickly done.

Easily the stimmed marine drop. Tech to starport with control tower quick, build 8 marines and research stim while your teching and your set. stimmed marines do over twice the damage and take out workers in record speed.I've only lost on one of these because of quick lurkers.

Flying marines ala Boxer (the terran god) is fun true. Its an expanasion killer, a very quick mobile drop, but the cargo is very vulnerable.

Ya..marines are so much fun. And they kill so so fast too. You just dump then in the enemy workers and run away as soon their army arrives. No unseigeing time either.
