TvP 3-1-2 Build

Alright this guide will teach you the art of one base play, and more importantly a very useful build to add to your arsenal. This is a 1 marine 3 marauder 1 hellion poke that transitions into an army built from a total of 3 raxes, 2 starports, 1 factory. This idea was taken partly from TLO but is a build I have refined quite a bit.

This build starts off as a 1-1-1, where you build 1 rax(marine then techlab), one factory, than one starport when money allows. After you're 3rd marauder pops out as part of the early poke-in, throw down a starport, then two more raxes

Avilo's Terran Ghostmech Build (TvP)

Avilo's Ghost Mech + (1/1/1) Raven opening- Guide for Terrans that wants to fist smash Protosses in the face

All right, I feel that I have fine tuned ghost mech to the point where
a) it is viable itself as a standard tvp strategy
b) you will be able to have a unit composition all game long that works vs all Protoss unit compositions
c) the strategy is here for the long haul. yep, it has been effective since beta started and will continue to be
d) i've used it against very good players, so it is not just me bullshitting out a theorycraft, but putting it into practice
e) I can add +50 to my ego (^_^) and at the same time make all T stand a better chance vs the Protoss all-in invasion.

kcdc's PvT Fast Expand Build

Apparently, a lot of P players struggle w/ PvT.  Sure, T units seem to be a little bit more efficient with stim, medivacs and tanks, storm not being what it was in SC:BW, and collosi getting rocked by vikings. But with this build, you can keep a base advantage throughout the game and use your mobility advantage to prevent T from building up the critical mass of tanks he needs to finish you.

iEchoic's 1/1/2 Hellion Drop TvP

Starcraft 2 Terran Hellion Drop by iEchoic

 I'll start off by saying that I didn't invent most of the components of this build. I didn't invent 1/1/1 (or 1/1/2), and I did not invent 2starport play. However, I was dissatisfied with the rax/fact/rax/starport/starport opening as I felt the extra building time for the rax and gas wasted on marauder-based bio kept the build from being efficient. I began making a build to increase the efficiency of the two-starport core which is extremely versatile and difficult to counter in TvP. 

This build is an optimization and stylistic change to the 2-starport play which is becoming increasingly popular. I've been running this build for 3-4 days at ~1000 diamond level and have had a ton of success with it. I feel that it is more powerful and more versatile than most 2port play.

PVP 10/10 gate strategy

    I know what you're thinking. "This guy's actually going to write a guide on 2 gate? lol" Of course, 2 gate is one of the most basic build that any babytoss will use. However, how well can you execute it? First of all, I want to say: 2 gate works. I'm a 500+ diamond protoss player, and 10/10 gate rarely fail me. For those who make "OMG YOU'LL NEVER BE BETTER IF YOU CHEESE" comment, probably while furiously making love to your giant ego, I say fine. Whatever you say, 2 gate is a strong, easy, fun build that's great for both beginners and experts(yes I said it) It WILL help you get better if you learn how to execute this build correctly. Of course, there's a lot of variation on the 2 gate build - but I'm going to talk about my favorite variation - 10/10 gate super aggression.
