Starcraft 2: Joana’s SC2 Guide Spotlight + Preview

Did you know that only 2 Starcraft 2 guides are actually written by real diamond players? The rest of them, just copy and paste from other sites, including from mmoexploiters. One of these guides, written by a true Diamond level player, is Joana's Starcraft 2 guide. This is why we decided to do a spotlight on this guide. Joana's is actually written by the same man who wrote the Original Horde Leveling guide for World of Warcraft, Joana's Horde Leveling Guide. There are no ghost writers, like what happens with most other guides.

Note by Spitt on Joana's SCII Guide

I mentioned that this is a guide spotlight. I wanted you to understand why I decided to do a spotlight on this guide, when there are so many others out there.  First, remember that this isn't just rehashed information that some get from our site and that it's not written by others, or even just a rehash of someone else's guide (the original owner of wowhead released a rewritten version of Joana's Horde Leveling guide). This is newly written, and while it is some of the same information you will get in other guides, it's not in fact just a copy/paste.  One of the key features that impressed me, was seeing the videos explaining and proving that the strategies work. It's one thing to read about a strategy, and quite another to see exactly how they are done, against experienced players.

Joana's Starcraft 2 Guide Review

So what will you get when you buy the guide? First of all, it will give you an explanation of all the basics of the game. Joana writes about the differences in this game and early Blizzard strategy games. He also explains the game terminology and how to use macros. Beyond that, he talks about the strengths and weaknesses of each race. Included in the guide, you will find an article about every major strategy for each race and when to use it. Joana often includes video replays of each strategy so you can see exactly how it is done.

The first race he talks about is the Terrans. Terrans in Starcraft 2 have a few key differences. The first is the MULE, which changes the way you collect your minerals. It is very important to master this skill, so Joana spends a good deal of talking about it. He also shows you very clearly the best strategies for Terrans, including the Reaper Rush, Hellion Rush, and Marine Rush. In each strategy he will also show you which units they are strong against, and which they are weak against. To make sure you can use this strategy, build orders are also included.

Next up is a detailed explanation of the Zerg. Zerg are know for their ability to build a lot of units very quickly and cheaply. One thing you have to be careful about is the tendency to forget about your defense. Joana does a good job explaining the best ways to keep up the offensive attacks without letting yourself be backstabbed. This could be the single most important piece of advice for a Zerg player. Just as in the Terran section, Joana also talks about all the possible multiplayer scenarios and how the Zerg should approach them.

Finally Joana covers the Protoss. Most players of Starcraft 2 assume that Protoss are slow to expand. Joana dispels that myth and explains in great detail how to expand quickly and safely. Some of the unique traits of the Protoss are the Chrono Boost, and the Warp Gate. These are very important for a Protoss player to learn about, so Joana does a good job showing you how they work. Protoss players will also need to master the two primary strategies of Void Ray Rush and the Stalker Rush. Joana lays out how to do these strategies step by step.

Overall, Joana's Starcraft 2 Guide is a good buy. One thing that makes it very valuable is that fact that it is only a one time fee. The price gives you a lifetime membership, so when new patches come out, you get the updates for free. If you buy no other guide, we highly recommend Joana's Starcraft 2 guide. Do I have access to this guide? You bet I do!
