Analysis

We know Maru used the same build (with minor adjustments) against Trap in the last GSL semi final. People attribute his defeat against Trap to his lack of diversity in builds and strategies. But I believe his decision has much to do with the state of the match up and the map pool. His build is very solid for ladder games.

Maru always starts with a 16 Refinery Reaper expand into 1-1-1, and then he puts down two more Barracks for a 3-1-1 Stim and Medivac move out timing. The Cyclone and Viking are mainly used to defend against Stargate tech.

The goal is to make a timing attack at Protoss' third Nexus with bio, two Medivacs, 2-4 Widow Mines, and a Raven. You should have +1 Infantry attack, Stim, and Combat Shield too. The Raven is critical to the push, so make sure you are careful with its positioning.

You can make some adjustments to the build if you know opponent is not using a Stargate build. For example, you can make a Siege Tank after the Cyclone against Twilight Council tech.

This build is featured in the September issue of the Metagame Build Order series on TerranCraft.
