Home Editorial Balance Are Terran overpowered? Blizzard weighs in…

While a tier list for a game with only three choices might seem pointless and laughable, many players in forums around the world (yes, this includes Korea) seem to leaning towards the notion that Zerg are underpowered (UP) and Terran are death on wheels (DOW).

Sure, there are counters for the Terran bioball, but too often Zerg players are forced to perform superior macro and micro in order to tech to and utilize these counters. One need only glance at the leaderboards to show that, for whatever reason, Zerg are extremely underrepresented.

Terran > Protoss > Zerg

There you have it: mathematical proof that Terran reign supreme. I knew cheating my way through 5th grade math would pay off one day!

Now if only someone could explain what all those letters mean.
