Terran Build Orders - Youtube tutorials


Posts: 537
Hi everyone,

I thought I would throw out some videos that I did a search for on youtube. This can be helpful for those that are new to Starcraft and it can always be helpful to the others that have been playing in the beta ... never hurts to get little tips or notice things you could change to improve your build order.

Anyway below are some videos and please give them a look over and if you happen to find better versions or even find videos that aren't covered, then by all means, please add them.

More videos will be added once I have more time to filter through youtube.

I personally believe having a visual tutorial is better than having a wall of text telling when to build your SCV, Barracks, Supply Depot etc etc!

So like I mentioned above, if you find videos that aren't listed below please add them.

This is one of the best videos I've seen in my opinion. Also you will see how to use nukes to help defend your units/bases and how to use them to confuse your enemy. Enjoy! -- Thanks to NeroN for finding this video for me!

Starcraft 2 - Team Info/ Terran Pro Strat
I found the video to be rather funny and I imagine most of you will get a kick out of this video. Please be aware this video does contain some racial abuse near the end.


Team Liquid - The Little One
This is a compliation of one of the best Terran players out there in the Starcraft 2 community. He does some very interesting and impulse tactics. It's a great video to watch to see how to change tactics within a split second.


Latest Update: 07/08/2010 - More video links added!
(Notice: The videos within this thread were not created by me. They were made and played by other people within the Starcraft 2 community.)

Please aware that most tactics won't be found all on youtube. So it's always a good idea to get into some of the fansites that are kicking around on the Interwebs for Starcraft 2. For example you should all take the time to register and read through the forums of Team Liquid. There website can be found here: http://www.teamliquid.net/

Very nice, thank you for this. First time SC player, though I did play some WC3 back when, not that I was any good at it. This game is certainly a much different pace compared to the other rts's I've played most recently, and these videos have really helped me and given me some great advice. Thanks again.

Thanks for the kind words everyone. I'll try and get some free time later today to do another search to find some league games that I find to be very interesting and shows you how to play as a Terran against Protoss, Zerg and of course Terran.

Those videos will be more indepth and faster paced, but it will show you what a real league game is like, once you get out of the lower ladders of everybody rushing :)

Also for those with youtube accounts, which I imagine is everyone on the interwebs, make sure you subscribe to this guy: http://www.youtube.com/user/HDstarcraft?blend=2&ob=1

He does a lot of great casts for Starcraft 2 matches and by watching the replays that he goes over, you get to learn little tricks and get to see how micro-management is done effectively!

Hello again,

Like I mentioned earlier I would try and get another look through Youtube to find some more interesting videos for everyone to learn more about playing Terran to overall improve your skills and knowledge of the race that you play at your finger tips.

So today I’ve gone for a mix of some really good league games and some tactic videos for the Terran, showing different ways of playing and of course how to use the map to your advantage.

Again if you find any videos yourself when looking through Youtube, please add them to this thread, so everyone can benefit from learning how to get better with the Terran race in Starcraft 2.

I do apologise if there are people that want to see a good Terran vs Protoss game, but I couldn't find the match I was looking for. Maybe someone has it linked on their fav list on youtube, but it's a Terran vs Protoss and the Terran player in question drops insane amount of nukes during the whole game. If anyone finds it, please link it in this thread as it's a really good match to watch.


EDITED: Moved the video links to the first post, to make it easier for people to find the links without having to scroll or go to another page.
