Overview[edit]

Opening with Marauder (1) to cover a fast expand and adding Marauder production and addition Barracks after Infantry Weapons Level 1 and Stimpack have started, Terran does a fast tech to 2-2 Infantry upgrades and then add Starport and produces heavy Barracks production on two mining bases and takes map control with a huge army size and upgrade advantage.

Goal[edit]

Stockpile the early army of Terran and make the early game a defensive tech to fast 2-2 infantry upgrades. And start taking a strong map presence after either 1-1 or 2-2 to deny any greedy expansions from Protoss.

Basic Build Order[edit]

Notes[edit]

  • Short on gas? Make Marines instead of Marauders.
  • Only make a total of four Medivacs or Vikings before starting 2-2.
  • Start all three other Refineries with the Factory, which will be at the same time as the third set of 100 gas.

Scouting[edit]

  • Forge or even Double Forge builds are weak for Protoss in the early game and hitting them before 1-1 finishes or at least harassing is strongly recommended.

Execution[edit]
