FishtermerService was theorycrafting with me today after a game on his stream where he went mass widow mine against Protoss with a raven and a few vikings to kill observers. Toss built 0 cannons until like ten minutes after he started showing this composition. He decimated P's worker lines and barely held off a counterattack where P went around the mines with his army to T's bases (third and nat got taken out but whole army eventually died to mines), and at that point the game was over cause P couldn't clear out mines in his base anymore.
Based on this, FS has concluded that mass widow mine supported by ravens/vikings/hellbats is an unbeatable composition. Thoughts?
This sounds very similar to mt fishnoob's "unbeatable" strategy of banshee/raven
Im pretty sure i could beat a plat zerg going mass raven....should we get rid of seeker missle too?
I mean, that analogy fails because I'm in platinum league. Can you beat a [your league] player going mass [unit belonging to a race you're terrible at]?

I've long been arguing that mines are OP TvZ. Which is a separate discussion from FS saying he solved TvP by doing that build against someone who took 10 minutes to think "gee maybe I should build a cannon against all these mines".
ok, was placed in gold and spent all day playing random, some thoughts:
TvT: Sky terran still good unit.
TvZ: Didnt play any but I assume the raven build probably still works, and if not, i can just make widow mines.
TvP: Gonna have to keep cheesing this matchup,**** toss
ZvZ: I like mutas...so I like this, I think I have a good feel for it.
ZvT: Im sticking with the infestors, probably with roach/hydra
ZvP: Tried to make swarm hosts, they dont seem to be very effective, gonna have to come up with a plan for this matchup, **** toss
PvP: got raped here trying to go some kindve oracle into skytoss opening, probably going to figure out some kindve 1 base play with stalkers, **** toss
PvT: never played it, dont have a single clue what im going to do either, although i hear storm is a good unit.
PvZ: Skytoss is pretty hilarious here, just going to have to figure out how to stay alive against better players.
