This is the May 2019 entry of Metagame Build Orders.
Defying conventional knowledge, Mech is on the rise in the match up against Protoss in the pro scene. This has potential to be the greatest metagame change ever in Starcraft 2. I want to discuss several interesting aspects of this revolution.
Protoss often attempt to use Adept and Stalker to delay or deny Terran from completing the Command Centre on the low ground at the natural. How well both sides play out this early skirmish has a huge impact in subsequent events. This post discusses some of the simple solutions that I see pros use.
Maru won his fourth GSL on Sunday against Classic. I usually do not review a series, but this one has many good talking points.
After much trial and error from Blizzard, Raven is at an interesting spot now. I want to discuss how Raven is used in the current metagame.
