|PvP Timing Attack by Gemini_19 |
It's rare we get completely new PvP styles since pros usually just reshuffle the main few openings around with their own slight modifications to them, but Zest came out with something we've never really seen before. Using it twice in a row vs Dear in the GSL Ro8, Zest's SIX adept opening proved to be very difficult to deal with and seemingly made a fool out of Dear.

I'm still riding the Dear hype train, I'm becoming a #BigFan of his play lately. Despite an unfortunately underwhelming Ro8 exit to a dominating Zest, Dear has still been showing some great games outside of the GSL as well. In the Olimoleague May Finals he had some nice PvT series vs Ryung and GuMiho with some very solid Colossus centric styles, including this one.

Builds like this one have been getting a lot of traction over time, and I decided to do an analysis based on some pro replays I found on how to go Mech in tvt with a cyclone mid-game!

Pretty straightforward mech build with many details that can improve your play. Hitting a crisp hellbat-cyclone timing is key as that's your first real pressure. I tend to use a non cloak banshee with it as a bit of bonus damage and of course to keep me safe against rushes. However if you prefer 2 banshees and cloak, or a liberator, or even a raven, any of those can work also.

Ever since Chronoboost changed I keep losing a lot of Drones to the first two Adepts. Additionally, I also make 6-8 Slow Lings and still take damage. That is deeply frustrating and made me look for a Solution. The Solution I came up with is a very economic 13/12 1 Base Speedling Opener. I use the early Ling to put pressure on my Opponent while I double Expand into 3 Base Hydra.

My standard ZvP Opening at the moment. I like to only send 1 overlord across the map - but only because the meta is so strongly phoenix first. I will go back to sending 2 (1 to sacrifice, 1 to sit above natural) once the meta shifts

This is my favorite build for Stukov, early Civilian Compound upgrade steam roll fast then add the Bunkers and it's an easy win. Call downs should as always be used asap and make sure to watch the mini-map to change the Psi-Emitter to the right location.

Hey everyone this is my build for Kerrigan. We focus on early hatcheries and gas to get larva production without queens. Omega worms are used for army movement and to get creep spread for Malignant creep. I go over the build in the video.

This is my best build for H&H you can do any match-up with this build. Reapers are the most versatile unit in their army. Upgrades mean a lot for them and Jump Jets are the most important upgrade. Ravens add a lot of dps so make sure to add them for extra DPS.

True opens Hatch First while INnoVation opens with a Reaper Expand. INnoVation's first Reaper doesn't get much scouting information but keeps it on top of True's 2nd expansion location to see when it goes down after Zergling Speed finishes.
INnoVation follows up with cloaked Banshees while dropping Hellbats at the main and sending Hellbats to the 3rd. True counters with a Baneling bust and manages to get his Zerglings on top of most of INnoVation's SCVs at his natural before they escape up the ramp. Meanwhile, both players are also microing on the other side of the map where Hellbats continue to attack at the 3rd.
The cloaked Banshees finally make it across the map, but True already has Spore Crawlers up to defend. INnoVation finds an opening at the main and picks off a few workers and Queens. The game begins to settle down as both players get back to macro and upgrades, and True extends his creep coverage.
INnoVation transitions into Bio Tank with continued Banshee harassment while True continues to mass Zerglings and Banelings into Hydralisks. INnoVation gets a big drop on the main while he pushes in at the front with his Tanks as INnoVation maintains a supply lead. They push back and forth, but the Tank support is too much as True calls GG.
