I'm trying to figure out new Stargate harass openings with Toss (particularly in PVP and PVT). Oracles have worked great against zerg for me (typically 12gate to cyber to stargate), and then expanding behind that (or dropping two more gates and expanding).
For Terran the only opening I've found feasible, due to widow mine drops and fast tanks, is robo play (for observers then immortals). I have no problem with this, since I love mid- and late-game templar play, but basically it is WoL Toss vs. HotS Terran.
Any Toss players have considerable success with modified openings due to HotS changes?
I haven't played any terrans yet but that sounds astute.
The best pro games i've seen of PVT the toss generally goes 2 stalker + Mothership harass. If the Terran builds a wall on a ramp the mothership gives sight and the stalkers can blast the supply depot... forcing the terran to push out marines which you can pickoff.
I haven't tried it just yet, but probably will do so later today.
No idea how the game is now. Infestors got nerfed right?
Infestors were nerfed big time. Fungal is a projectile and a slow one at that (no longer insta-cast), fungal damage was nerfed, infested terrans no longer are affected by evolution chamber upgrades (happened near the end of WoL). Infested terran eggs have hp reduced, storm can kill them before they hatch (happened near the end of WoL).
Now they're what they should be, a support unit instead of a 1 unit army.
Pretty sick play by bomber in bomber vs gosuuser. Gosu was going ling/bane/ultra/infestor. Bomber threw down a bunch of hunter-seekers on one of his medivacs and speed boosted it over gosu's clumped up army, did a ton of damage.
I only watched game 3 of Bomber vs. Goswser today but it was pretty funny. 80 minutes, the last 25 or so was Bomber's 60 supply (Marine/Marauder/Medivac) vs. Goswser's 70 supply (Queens/Corrupters/BLs/Lings/Drones). Bomber couldn't fight head on so he used his Medivac speed to take out 1 base at a time and then run before taking a fight. Eventually Goswser killed off the ~8 Marines that were keeping him from sending his Corrupters at the Medivacs, and won the game.
