Day[9] Daily #633 - First's PvT Fast 3 Nexus


In today's daily, we're going to look at a rather unusual, but extremely effective build order by LGIMFirst to snatch up 3 command centers rather quickly vs Terran!  We'll talk about

  • What Terran players typically do as an opening and how the fast 3 Nexus can support it
  • The temporary weaknesses of a 3 nexus play
  • How First plays off this position to provide himself an advantage

It's a beautiful and clean style that First used throughout the WCS S2 Grand Finals!

Q&A With Day[9]

  • How does a Terran player engage or micro its way to kill the Protoss army that first had in the first game?
  • Could you explain why you don't want to switch into tempest tech until you had a high base count? Earlier you mentioned tempests are bad at defending multi pronged attacks, which is the main idea behind Terran bio late game.
