An extremely risky build order concept from HotS that can be used against Protoss. ByuN implemented the CC First 3 Barracks strategy better than any other player I have seen so far, so here it is.

Replay - ByuN v Dear: Game 1 - Frost LE

Build Order

Why is there no SALT encoding or Overwolf build?

  14    Supply Depot  
  17  1:00  Command Center  
  18  1:15  Barracks  
  19  1:20  Refinery  
  20  1:35  Barracks  
  22    Marine   Keep producing from all rax
  23  2:05  Orbital Command  
  23  2:10  Orbital Command  
  23    Barracks Reactor   @100% Rax
  23    Barracks Tech Lab   @100% Rax
  23    Barracks   @150 Minerals
  23    Refinery

      Supply Depot  
    3:15  Engineering Bay

This risky nature of this build pays off as the Terran's economic gamble will be rewarded with faster production, and more army units due to a stronger economy. If the Protoss does not punish you for going CC First, most likely, Terran should be able to roll through the Protoss and deny the third with sheer numbers. An important timing to hit with this build order should you survive any early aggression Protoss can throw at you is the Stimpack timing with a bunch of Marines. If used correctly, can trade extremely efficiently with Stalkers before Blink finishes.
