Description

Stress-Free TvT Opening

This build was inspired by Heromarine’ mentioning that TvT could be very stressful if you don’t build a bunker early, so he enjoyed doing a barracks-gas, scv scout and fast bunker - only putting on light pressure with the first reaper and then a marine drop. From there you head into double raven, tanks, and into the standard macro bio-tank setup

Build

  • 14 depot
  • 16 Barracks
    • Reaper
    • Marine
    • Reactor
    • Marine production
    • Swap off reactor when starport is ready to build vikings
    • If Bio - swap onto tech lab and start stim - If MECH - build extra addons for your other factories
  • 16 gas
  • 19 orbital
  • 20 depot
  • 20-21 bunker at natural
  • @150 minerals/100 gas - Factory (depot scvs lines up nicely for this)
    • Tech lab
    • Cyclone
    • Swap off and build another tech lab
    • Tank production
  • @100% Factory - Starport
    • Starport
    • Swap onto tech lab
    • 2x ravens
    • Swap onto reactor
    • Viking production
  • ~4:00/400 minerals - 3rd CC
  • 3rd/4th gas with next free money

Transition I tend to play bio - so for me it’s:

  • Double ebay
  • 4xrax
  • Reactors
  • Armoury
  • 2nd factory
  • 4th CC
  • 6th-7th rax

Analysis

Notes:

  • Cyclone can poke and even distract at the front whilst drop hits if they don’t go for many hellions and reapers
  • Your drop should stay at home for a bit longer vs a player who’s massing hellions off a reactor factory - you need your bunker fully loaded and units ready to stop them diving in or dropping in the main

Yo great build PiG, it's perfect for me. FYI, you forgot to put the medivac in the build description under the Starport.
