Description

Great build for crushing through the roach-heavy meta on the ladder. The first drop functions a lot like an archon drop but with a lot more punching power vs roaches.

You can afford a fast 3rd and build up your sentry count early so they have time to build energy. You could macro off the back of this, however I prefer to hit the huge timing attack as follows:

Stop at 41 probes, 3-gases. The 3rd base is just to give the appearance of macro.

Keep building immortals behind the initial drop and do a 4-5 immortal timing attack with a lot of sentries and a tonne of stalkers (8 gates). You skip the twilight and focus on raw numbers here. Warp in more zealots/adepts vs ling heavy forces, otherwise just pure stalkers to reinforce.

NOTE: Build is played in G5 of the VoD, starting at 59:00 (another crappy execution of it is in g2)
