The more I look at this, the more this helps T.
I think it may actually be a little tougher for me personally (only plat), but for higher level players it makes T even stronger.
Still secure the center third. Then backup to secure the gold. Assuming you have a fairly mobile force, bouncing between the two should be pretty easy. Also, against like muta harass, normally you'd build turrets in your main, but if you build them at the gold, that should be enough to cover your main. Plus a gold will give you extra mins to build more if necessary. Also, gold will help more with a bio army which can snipe new hatches. I imagine a lot of scenarios where you can actually establish a 3rd and 4th before Z gets a solid hold on 3rd. you'll be throwing bio at them constantly, that they'll melt with banes, but you can just reload bio so fast on 4 base (1 gold) that even with banes they cant quite secure it.
brag: BCs are the coolest unit in SC2
beat: BCs are one of the most easily countered units by all races in SC2
variance: who the **** gets to the point of using BCs
BCs can be scary. There's nothing like playing FFA and having a fleet of 10 BCs from one team creep into your base like 11-12 min in against your helpless colo/stalker/zealot ball. I obviously then sent my army to his base and killed his expo and half his base to screw him over.
I just had a guy go cc first against me... weirdest thing I've ever seen. I was so sure I was getting proxied I looked everywhere til I was like, ok I'll check his natural and sure enough he had a cc building.
So then I built a void ray and all in-ed him and won.
I get a PvZ on Xel Naga. I go 2 gate stargate and push out/expand after getting 5 phoenixes. The minute he sees my phoenixes he starts swearing at me and such for the next like 2 minutes. I am apparently "cheesing" and I am horrible even though I'm +8 builders at this point with a larger ground army somehow. He loses after going blind spore crawler...
Who's the "genious" now?
I <3 rage. I wasn't gonna say anything to him but he wouldn't stfu. This was completely unsolicited. The only thing I said to this point was "gl".
