  • Interesting Terran Openings

    So as I was playing with the possibilities of every opening terran can do with the standard

    10 Supply Depot
    12 Barracks
    13 gas
    15 Orbital Command

    Here are some of the things I came up with and why. This only includes up to the next two buildings after the first Barracks at 12 supply. It certainly makes for an interesting set of openings. Obviously not all of these are viable or practical but they're possible!


    2nd building

    Possibilities: Barracks, Factory, Ghost Academy, Engineering Bay

    Why fac?
    o Hellions
    o tanks
    o starport

    Why 2nd rax?
    o Larger saturation of Infantry

    Why GA?
    o Fast Ghost

    Why CC?
    o Economical Lead

    Why Engineering Bay?
    o Missile Turrets
    o Infantry Upgrades


    3rd building, combat unit producing structure

    Possibilities: Barracks, Factory, Starport, Command Center, Ghost Academy, Armory, Engineering Bay

    Why 3rd Rax?
    o Larger saturation of Infantry

    Why factory?
    o More mech units

    Why starport?
    o Vikings, Medivacs, Banshees, Ravens

    Why Command Center?
    o Economic Lead

    Why Ghost Academy?
    o Ghosts

    Why Armory?
    o Thors
    o Vehicle Upgrades

    Why Engineering Bay?
    o Missile Turrets
    o Infantry Upgrades
