How does a Terran gamer stop a cannon thrill from Protoss?
On a tiny 1v1 map playing Protoss vs. Terran, if the Protoss gamer brings the probe to construct a pylon and also build behind-the-scenes of the Terran base, what should the Terran gamer do?
It feels like the probe is so quickly that sending out all the SCVs to eliminate the pylon/probe would certainly reduce mineral celebration.
Didja recognize terran builings can take off? xD I simply permit him to construct come cannons and afterwards simply fly all my structures to the next development. Construct reaping machines ASAP while he is constructing cannons to strike you, and also destroy his probes and also build and also nexus etc Then construct some marines to sustain your reaping machines.
draw your SCVs and also eliminate the pylon. no matter if you shed mineral manufacturing for some time due to the fact that your challenger is throwing away a lots of their manufacturing on structures that you are damaging. attempt to maintain constructing even more scvs while you are managing them however. as long as you can maintain your supply depot and also barracks appearing about promptly you need to be great.
If you see the thrill far too late, unless they have actually obstructed your ramp stopping your SCVs from leaving, you can additionally simply take off your structures and also most likely to your all-natural development and also proceed as regular. Ideally with very early aggressiveness as they will certainly have thrown away a lot loan on the cannon thrill their base will certainly have little in it to stop you.
Kill the probe first!
A solitary probe can plunk down even more pylons/canons much faster than your scvs can take them down. Micro and also eliminate the probe with 2 or 3 scv's.
My approach versus pre - emptively obstructing a canon thrill is that I construct my first supply depot near the sides of my base (not my ramp). This will certainly permit me to see if any person is construct a pylon or a proxy'ed barrack. Supply depots misbehave selections as wall surface - ins for ramps anyways, given that they have such reduced hp.
When using a tiny map, you need to take care and also look your beginning area. When you see a probe coming, attempt to eliminate it with 2 SCVs (micromanagement required, you will certainly need to round it up). If it begins constructing a pylon, send around 5 SCVs to destroy it, given that without the pylon all structures are pointless. You need to contend the very least 1 or 2 SCVs collecting minerals in all times and also construct even more while removing the thrill. After that construct barracks asap and also you need to be great.
So the approach resembles this:
- if you believe a canon thrill, precursor your base
- once a probe can be found in, send 2 SCVs to eliminate it, micromanage the quest
- if the probe begins constructing a pylon, go with the pylon with even more SCVs
- constantly contend the very least 2 SCVs collecting minerals and also construct even more
- Build Barracks ASAP
