4v4s always seem to devolve into protoss players going skytoss with a predominantly void-ray based army, with a handful of chargelots. I have tried a variety of counters such as vikings, thors, and marines, and a mix of them. Is there something I am missing or should I just micro these better?
4v4 is a mess. You can try to counter one thing, but you cannot counter everything. You just have to stick to a well-rounded composition and bring your A-game. Even if you beat the voidrays with mass vikings lets say, what are you going to do about the ground the next guy has? Landed vikings are weak against that. So to answer your question, you need to do both - choose a well-rounded composition and “play better.” You have 3 other allies and hopefully they are not useless (they usually are). Good luck lol
mass vikings hit and run tactic
