In StarCraft, speed matters. According to pro players Lee “NADA” Yun-Yeol and Jang “Moon” Jae Ho, players need an APM (or “actions per minute) rating of at least 300 to be competitive. That means that every minute, players should be able to issue at least 300 commands to keep up with their opponent.
That may not sound very impressive on paper, considering that everything from left-clicking to order a unit to move to pushing a hot key to start building something, counts as an “action.” But the following video actually shows you what 300 APM looks like. Check it out.
