In the current HoTS MLG going on...The foreigners got dumped out early, only the Koreans left. Of the remaining zerg, only Startale Life, arguably one of the best player in the world, and inarguably the best Zerg in the world... was the only Zerg in tournament, to win 2 games against Terran in a best of 5.
It's reaper harrass, Muta V Muta, and Air toss all over again...seems like the days of old.
To be fair though, there were arguably only 4-5 top Zergs in the tournament (Life, Leenock, Sen, Stephano and Ret), and only 2 of them Korean. Considering how many top Korean Terran there are at MLG, I think it's a bit early to draw conclusion based solely on MLG. I mean, Ret got knocked out by Flash, probably the best broodwar player of all time, Leenock got knocked out by INnoVation, one of the top Terrans right now and Sen got knocked out by a protoss. Stephano lost in the first round but I didn't see this game and i know hes not at his best when he has to prepare for an opponent in advance.
So basically, although I'm not saying that Terran is not overpowered, I think it's a bit early to say so just a couple of weeks into HotS
