Double Refinery Reaper Hellion is one of the most common openings in the Terran mirror match now. It has been discussed a lot recently on forums, and I will share my thoughts on it.
Cyclone is not the first unit to come to mind when you think about how the new Legacy of the Void units change the game, but this unit has been in the spotlight in some recent games. Incidentally, these new styles coincide with the announcement of the proposed balance changes, and I want discuss how that may revolutionalise the role of the unit.
In the last post, I discussed how TvT is a match up of framework, and why there is less emphasis on build orders. This post follows that up and provides a basic framework for the standard 15/16 Reaper expand opening.
There were quite a number of mech games in TvT recently. While this is a reason to celebrate if you love mech, you shouldn’t get too optimistic just yet.
