We'll start with perhaps the most important thing first: Don't completely discount this entire thread because you see TvP and tanks in the same sentence. You say immortals, I say marines. You say colossi, I say vikings, etc.
That, and this is NOT World of Chesscraft 2 <3 The success of an engagement/match, while somewhat dependent on composition, relies on other factors as well. Production, powerofmicro (Hold out your hands <.<), position, upgrades.
So, Heya! :D
I am a gold league terran player with a burning love for tankz and mariners.
In general, I use Bomber's TvP build (http://day9.tv/d/Day9/day9-daily-470-bombers-tvp-revolution/) but I honestly just don't like the play-style associated with bio and mass-aggro.
I love my super passive/defensive play, it makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside <3.
This is where the tanks come in :D! I've been wondering if this marine/tank style has any merit in the TvP match-up because of any possible colossus/immortal play. (Dem Immortals!)(Which is why people say this style is awful, however! ->). Perhaps incorporating marauders/ghosts/vikings can solve that? Any thoughts are appreciated <3.
Let's talk builds - I found a few marine/tank builds (Some were not necessarily TvP builds - I have no idea if TvZ M+T will work in TvP)
- Ye Olde 1/1/1 - http://wiki.teamliquid.net/starcraft2/Marine_Tank_Banshee_push_%28vs._Protoss%29 - I'd rather avoid all-ins tbh <3
- oGsSupernova M+T - http://wiki.teamliquid.net/starcraft2/Marine_Tank_TvP - ~10m timing push to secure third/ or kill 'em
- Bomber'sTvZ - http://day9.tv/d/Day9/day9-daily-395-terran-week-bomberss-tvz/ - Build is in Part 2 / Paint <.< This is a BIG 2/1 push-2-kill with ghost production/ 4thbase behind. Hits around 14m. (Also one I practice a ton, if it can be used in TvP.. even better! Yay for less builds to learn!)
I'd love any input you guys can offer on this <3 Especially opinions on the Bomber TvZ - Attacks that can wtfdemolish terran, vulnerability timings for protoss, protoss tech timings, Can these builds even support marine/tank/viking/ghost/raven production, and general strengths/weaknesses of the weird build/s! More builds would be interesting to check out as well :D
Thanks! :D I put some hours worth of effort into this, I hope it shows!
P.S. Those are some strong hearts :D
Edited for pretty. (Like Day9's paint skills <3)
^ And so people don't just see Tanks and /xxxxx out of Firefox :p
^ ..And for some added comic relief :D Yes, this is a serious post. But.. Day9 is awesome, so there.
