Blizzard recently announced that Cyclone is reverted to the pre-patch 3.8 version in another balance update. This is a bold and worrying move.
The mass Cyclone three Command Centre build is now one of the most common builds in the Terran mirror match up.
Cyclone defines TvT early game. But is Cyclone healthy for the match up?
There is a TvT opening which many use, but I don’t see people talk about it. This arguably the safest and most versatile expansion opening.
The new 15/16 Reaper expand Cyclone opening is the new standard macro opening in the Terran mirror match up. I will discuss how the metagame shapes this opening, and why it goes against the conventional knowledge of TvT.
