Q&A With Day[9]

-I'm a master league Terran. When I go for late Reapers I usually can kill a lot of Probes/structures and this causes immediately counter reaction, but fairly often I don't have enough stuff to defend myself.

-With the recent change done to the Infester, Do you feel like this unit will become the staple in ZvZ where every good player will have at least 3 and ZvZ in general will come down to how good your Infester micro is.


  • Incorporating Speed Reapers into your plan for Newbie Tuesday
  • Staying alive, distribution of money and how this plugs into the rest of our strategy
  • When making reapers, having high minerals and low gas with time to build another Barrack
  • Measuring if a strategy is successful by looking at the food count
  • If you're high on money - you didn't build enough structures or you didn't make stuff fast enough
