9 levels into brutal as of this moment. Not as hard as I thought it would be but I can see a few key missions that are going to be very difficult.

I can't macro very well, so I always end up not having enough units and too many unspent resources.

It's something I struggled with on my first play through. I always had thousands of resources and lost steam in the part of the mission I needed it most. You learn pretty quickly to build two barracks and hotkey them so you can spam marines and medics(Cannon fodder is the difference between winning and losing on brutal).

...And marauders, as they soak up damage better than marines. And you do want to keep marines aliv as they have pretty good dps. Anyways, the HotS campaign had only 5/27 missions fighting the Protoss, which was kind of sad because of the whole Zerg-wipe-out-Protoss message from WoL. But Kerrigan was pretty cool. Oh and I spent a lot of time on a lot of the missions because I tried to spread creep everywhere.

...But in the campaign, you use medics, since their healing is better.
