Many asked me what I think about TvP, and I sort of tiptoed around the debate most of the time. But some recently have convinced me to write something up to facilitate discussion and hopefully push the match up for the better.
Nothing engages the community more than discussion involving balance. While everyone is engaged in talking about balance one way or another, it seems to me few give much thought about the act of talking balance. This article is not about the state of balance per se, but rather I want to discuss about how we think when we talk balance.
TY recently has been using a TvZ build that resembles the characteristics of early three Command Centre and 2-1-1. I first saw this in his game against Rogue in Olimoleague more than a month ago. The build is unorthodox but well thought out.
GSL and WCS are picking up pace, and IEM Katowice is running now. The recent games show some interesting new trends in the Terran versus Protoss match up.
