Analysis

  • Hellion harassment/scouting can be awesome
  • A bit different in each matchup - find what works for you
  • Walloffs are incredibly important
  • Hellbats once you have armoury
  • Gas takes Priority
  • Engi Bay + Turret timing might need to be adjusted some games to before you add your 3rd-5th factories. However if you just get surprised 1/10 games or less then don’t bother too much. Mech always has some small vulnerabilities and you don’t want to start playing overly safe. So just follow the build at first and if you llose the odd game to air/drops don’t stress over it.

Nice to hear Isokaze! I'd recommend sinking your minerals into large numbers of hellions (nonstop production off that factory) and maybe even adding a 2nd/3rd factory for blue flame and a few siege tanks to help you survive any large timings where your banshee/hellion can't cope. Of course that slows down the transition into skytoss a little so it might not float your boat, if what you're doing works then rock it!

PiG! I love this build order and thank you so much for posting it. I am currently trying to use and adjust this build order to create my own Skyterran army composition. Using starports instead of factories, I would have Banshee's as my core with BC's to tank, Liberators and Ravens to support and Vikings to defend air. I have already worked out a lot of the details on how to micro and use this composition effectively, and also how to scout and change this in a way that counters the enemy composition. Do you have any suggestions? I am currently trying to get a good replay of mine that showcases this. I believe it has a lot of potential! =)
