Drops are one of the most useful
things of sc,here you'll see some strategies and how attack with
this.Obviously it varies according to the races,first with:
Their drop unit is the Dropship,an early attack
with some Marines and Medics in the middle of
the resources source may destroy him economically and give you
some advantage but with that you won't win the match.
If you want to make more damage, and even destroying your foe definitely, you'll have to
use something stronger, at least 3 Dropships
For example, in the first you load 2 tanks, in
the second other tank and 2 Goliaths and in the third 2
Marines, 1 Medic, 1 SCV and 2 Goliaths. The Goliaths are useful
against air units and they'll provide some ground support.
Use the SCV to repair the Tanks and to build defensive buildings,like Bunkers and
Turrets,even more,I'd suggest bringing more than an SCV.
must be in a place without too much protection,out of your enemy's
Attack with Tanks and defend with the other units,if the
drop attack is successful continue bringing units with
Dropships.You can build Turrets for static detecton and
Bunkers to defend or make a
Bunker Rush.If you have,use Science
Vessels and its spells.
The Protoss have the fastest drop unit of all
races(upgraded of course) although it isn't really very strong,the
Shuttle compensates it with its speed.
Generally, it's used to
make a Reaver
Rush,but it's also used to drop like Terrans and
Zergs,with Zealots and Dragoons.
It's the most interesting,and the best,since the
Overlord is the transportation unit and supply unit. you'll
always have many of them. But don't forget to have some extra and upgrade them!
What this strategy does is to take advantage of this feature to carry
out a MASSIVE discharge of Hidralisks,Zerglings or what you want
in the enemy base.
Though the enemy may kill some Overlords, most
of them will survive and unload its content,and due to the
Overlords are detectors, you won't worry for detection.
A good drop attack must have about 12/15 Overlords full of what you want (Hidralisks,Zerglings,Ultralisk,Lurkers)
The Lurker's drops is specially used against Terrans during the first minutes of a game.
