Description

This BO (Build Order) is probably not viable in Master/GM anymore, because the MetaGame shifted in the last few month. But players from Bronze to Diamond should take a look at this.

Maps: Proxima, BloodBoil, Honorgrounds, DuskTowers and all large maps (Alterzim, Apotheosis, etc)

InGame: There is a training map to try this build. "Multiplayer - Custom" and search for "Proxima" or "SALT".

  • 22 Core at 1:58 (before 2:00!)
  • After Stalkers and WG-Tech @100 gas: Twilight Council
  • After TC (Twilight Council) @100 gas: Mothership Core
  • @100% TC => Blink at ~3:23
  • WarpPrism at ~5:08

Attack commences at ~6:10 with 9 Stalkers and a WarpPrism at the front. Keep your money low! Do not forget to warp in Stalkers over Blink-Micro!

At 6:45 you should have at least:

  • 55 Probes
  • 3 Nexi
  • 19 Stalkers
  • above 100 Supply
