This is a great guide for a lot of the basic Terran macro principles. I like the fact that you did not go into any specific build orders or counter-unit strategies as it leaves room for interpretation for other players.
A+ and Liked (for all the posts)
Which is any different from protoss or zerg? oh wait replace mules with larva inject or chrono boost, and for zerg hot key all hatches.
sdddddddd, oh wait getting attacked szzzzzzzzzzzz. hmm need mutalisks. sttttttttttttt. get a life.
Excellent post, i think i knew most of this stuff before, but you putting it all into numbers and explanationing it out helps me grasp it all.
P.S. This "1/1/1" build that people eloquently named is actually called the Destiny Cloudfist build, its a common mistake that peeps make. :D
I know for a fact this will work up until the high diamond level, with few exceptions. I have little experience playing 2k+, but I'd assume, from watching replays, it is still viable there as well. I'd love to have some feedback from those 2K+ diamonds who have actually tried macro styles up there and know how it works/ doesn't work.
Coming from a 2k who focusses on Macro. I greatly despise the 3 rax openers. 1-1-1 into expand is what I usually do and then I add more factories and starports as i transition nto my third expansion. However, pressuring is needed in a macro game, especially against Zerg, because mutaling/bane is just ridiculous to handle at the moment. I'm sure most Terrans would agree and Muta magic box is also a load of BS.
Macro will win you 90% of your games, just learn your expansion times and how to defend it and saturate it.
Ps - great post, even for high level players.
Thanks! Very helpful.
I was loosing very often and I realized it was b/c my macro sucked! I could micro all day but it's to no avail if I don't have the macro-numbers to boost it.
Been working on it since and it has proven successful.
Post helped me to take my macro now to the next level.
