Description

This Proxy Gateway Build that Astrea played vs Uthermal at this Years IEM Katowice will make sure you are the one that sets the pace in the game! It’s not the Maxpax style proxy Zealot, however. Instead, we’re skipping that Zealot to get a Stalker that hits just before the Bunker finishes, while making it look to the untrained Terran eye like we’re just pulling off a normal Build at home.

Analysis

After the first proxied stalker comes a second proxied, chronoboosted stalker, followed by the second not chronobooster stalker at home. Now, depending on how the build is performing, we can invest into more Stalkers at the proxy, or transition out earlier for quicker Tech.

The Transition

Oftentimes, offense is the best defense, and the transition Astrea has decided on shows this off perfectly. After canceling the CC, Astrea transitions into a 4 Gate Blink Build order - Going for the Twilight, in this game at 3:40, a Robotics Facility 10 seconds later at 3:50, 3 additional gates since the forward gateway was unpowered and a Gas.

While the Third Base at around 5:30 makes sure we don’t accidentally turn this into too much of an Allin, with the Blink Upgrade being chronoboosted well, we’re hitting a brilliant attack at 6:00 Minutes with 12 Stalkers, easily Oneshotting tanks and trading out with the Terran with superb Micro.

From here, you can then transition into whatever Midgame tech you feel most comfortable with, be it Colossi, Storm or staying on the Mass Gateways. Astrea is showing us a Storm focused transition without Upgrades.

Since he got the Engineering Bay earlier, he doesn’t have to worry as much about keeping up with Upgrades, and with how much damage he has done with no Third base on the way for the Terran, Astrea just has to make sure that he can defend the attack. Remember children - If you do a lot of damage, that doesn’t mean they can’t still allin you!
