^checking out some youtube vids/tutorials would probably help a lot. for beginning players, it is most important to A. get shit tons of cash B. get shit tons of stuff C. a (hotkey for attack)+move shit tons of stuff profit. This is fairly easily done as terran/protoss. Little different for zerg. I did check out videos. That's what placed me into silver league and I can't seem to drop despite tons of losses. After awhile I got tired of losing and took a leave of absence.
