If the P times it well(as you get tech labs and reactors), he will be able to crush you because you just wasted 400 minerals onto an exp and marines are weak on their own even with a bunker. Of course, if you marine harass, then they'll have to recover before attacking giving you a chance to build bunkers, etc....

Not quite, I make an orbital in my main and use it to double my scv production while making extra mules to boost my economy. Not to mention if I see a 4 gate coming or any strong 1 base play from the toss player I just double bunker at my choke and by the time I'm on 3 rax with stim I can normally lay down the exp at my natural. Just beat a diamond toss doing this. I have a tech lab and reactor before I even start to make my expo.

I think your exp was too early and you should've went for more gates and had better spending(look who talking XD). I think you had 700/200 or so when you gg'd, that's 4 zealots or stalkers. I think intercepting his attack while on the move would've helped as well. You needed more sentries(think you only had one) and needed to ff. This is all I recall atm, but, I'll point out when I see it
I was going for 1 gate FE build which I've read is one of the leading PvT strats going right now. However, metalopolis may not be the best map to do that on with the natural so wide open.

If you're looking for advice on the game me and you played against each other. I would have to say that one reason why you lost is because 1 gate FE is a very risky build against T, when I had 2 siege tanks and pushed out your unit count was lower than mines because your expansion didn't pay for itself yet. I lost to Yks going 2 rax fac expand and that's because he went 2/3 gate robo and had an immortal or 2. He knew exactly where I was because he had an observer and intercepted my tanks before they could siege. You should look into going 2/3 gate robo into expand. That build is actually really good. You could even go 2 gate/stargate into robo.

Didn't realize you were sovern on SC2 Mwarren.

Thanks for the tips. That 1 Gate FE may be a safer play with a free natural in base or where it is easier to defend like Steppes. Next time I'll try the 3 gate or 2 gate robo expand.

Trying to learn macro games more since most of my team games I've played are based around 1 base builds.

I wouldn't recommend 1 gate FE against a terran on steppes lol

True especially considering the rush distances and the large area you'll have to block. I think JB is a much better map for 1 gate FE and even then, it's risky. I think 2 gate FE is a more solid opener. You can cb out units and have enough for a nexus
