Description

This is a defensive build that sits back with three Command Centre, and defend against most early attacks with Factory units.

This is TY's go-to TvP build in Dreamhack (the first premier LotV tournament), and it is something worth studying. Given that TY makes adjustments accordingly, his build orders for this build in his games aren't always the same. The stated build order below can be considered the default one.

Analysis

Adept with Warp Prism has been a problem for many Terran players. The current understanding is that a Cyclone is the way to go against Warp Prism, and it is used in most macro builds even if you do not go for an early third Command Centre. Given that you took an early third Command Centre, you're vulnerable to other timings like Adept Immortal or Blink Stalkers. The subsequent production of Siege Tanks fills this gap before your bio production and upgrade kicks in in the mid game.

I think it's risky to do macro against Protoss, since they are so strong against lategame Terran...

There are 4 Orbital Commands (1:28, 3:01, 4:05, 5:17) for 3 Command Centers.
