Can someone add the term UMS? I guess it refers to something like user created maps


Hi, I've seen "T3" on SC 2 forums but I don't know what it means. Could someone add it to the page ?


probably referring to tier 3. --Waffling1 21:40, 6 September 2010 (UTC)


not familiar with that term... at all... somebody else "sight" this one plz --Roemy 23:43, 26 August 2010 (UTC) --Ungood 17:18, 27 August 2010 (UTC)


what does this mean? i thought it was Fast Drop, but i remember reading it was something completely different. Can't remember tho.

The only FD I know of would be the Fake Double from Starcraft 1. --Fiel 04:20, 8 September 2010 (UTC)


the current definition would imply that the qualification for being a tank is taking damage. if banelings take damage, that would mean they are tanks too. the key point is that they are more efficient at taking damage compared to something else... that you would rather than that unit take a damage than another due to some kind of comparative advantage, in say, the department of DPS, or expensiveness, or etc.

reverting, but taking out the example.

the linked definition page had a slightly differnet definition, including the phase "primary role". starcraft is more dynamic than that, and roles often change as situations go. in a zergling hydra army, even tho zerglings are weak, they are the tanking units in the situation of having hydras and lings.

(i think that extra page link can be scrapped, unless someone really wanted to blow that up into an article. it only contains a definition, which is on the definition page already)

battlecruisers have insane dps, but are still usually ends up being the tanking unit in many situations due to the simple fact of having high HP.

every situation is different, and it's all about what is more efficient, and has a comparative advantage at tanking relative to something else.


Is it still worthwhile to put a definition for Cloning? I'm not sure if the SC1 way of doing cloning is still necessary for SC2 - using the shift key has largely replaced this... or has it? --Fiel 02:31, 21 September 2010 (UTC)


I looked it up on the internet and found no definition Video on demand? Video of demonstration? FPVOD? First person? etc.


I read a strategy post that mentioned it was WG+overlord. What does WG stand for? Thanks. -- 05:15, 27 November 2010 (UTC)

Don't know. What's the article? --tofucake, Senior Editor 22:10, 1 December 2010 (UTC)
He's talking about this article: where some guy climbed the 2v2 ladder with a P/Z warp gate + spotter overlord combo -Clessa 23:49, 30 December 2010 (UTC)


I can't find anything about this definition and I do really feel a citation is needed. A google search doesn't turn up anything nor have I been able to find anyone in chat that can explain it to me.--Salle 13:45, 8 January 2011 (UTC)

Bronze Proof[edit]

What does this mean? I see this mark next to some builds, like the speedling expand against protoss. --Stoopdapoop 06:03, 27 May 2011 (KST)

  • not sure if this one should go in really in terms of merit, but people use it so oh well
