What is StarCraft?
StarCraft is a sci-fi real-time strategy game that was made in 1998 thanks to the efforts of Blizzard Entertainment. The essence of the game lies in the conflict between three races - Terrans, Zerg and Protoss. Each race has unique traits and characteristics, but at the same time does not dominate over the other. The most common battle mode is 1v1. The essence of the game is to fight for resources, control the map, develop the army and destroy the opponent's base.
The continuation of the famous strategy was released after 9 years, so StarCraft 2 was announced. In 2017 an updated version of the video game StarCraft: Remastered appeared. StarCraft has won numerous awards, recognized as Strategy of the Year and received the prestigious AAGAD Award.Since 2017, the game has become free.

StarCraft competitions are so popular,so tournaments are broadcast on esports channels such as MBCGame and OnGameNet.The main championship for StarCraft is tournament called the World Cyber Games. The first championship took place in 2000, just 2 years after the release of the game. Since then, for 11 years in row, South Korean players have won the championship in this esport discipline.
The largest StarCraft event was the World Championship Series, with a series of competition events ending in a final tournament.

Basic betting strategies in StarCraft
As a rule, StarCraft players devote their entire playing career to playing as one of three possible races - Zerg, Protoss or Terran. Based on this, in order to make a successful prediction, it is necessary to take into account what race the esportsman plays when you plan to bet, and how easy it will be for him to play against the opponent's race. For example, in average the Terran player is successful against the Protoss, but has difficulty playing against the Zerg. At the same time, the player's personal skill does not always play a decisive role.
It is also necessary to take into account patches that can slightly strengthen one race and weaken another.
In addition, the card that players choose is important, since one race is stronger on some cards, but weaker on other cards.
