My post was more in response to Castigon. I don't agree with his statement that "all races race to T2".
That's not quite true either. Even if I get 2v1'd, or taking on a larger army, I can still do a lot of damage before having to give ground, and come out on top of an engagement based on the balance of a fight. Obviously that's not going to work if both of your opponents are top class players, but I've taken on 2 good players before and held plenty of times.
