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.
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.
Tankivac has redefined the Terran mirror and Terran versus Zerg match up in Legacy of the Void. Now, it has also found its way to the Terran versus Protoss match up that previously utilises Tank the least. I am going to discuss the inclusion of Tankivac in the two base attack build that has been popular recently.
Although mech was expected to be the main composition of Terran for Heart of the Swarm, most players opted for the standard Marine Tank composition when the expansion was just released. The new Medivac speed boost ability was often cited as the reason for the choice. However, Medivac had been heavily used in mech recently.
