I suppose reaper would have more use if Starcraft was a game about defensive buildings being integral to your build.

Since they aren't particularly, reaper becomes less useful. Don't reapers cost more than hellions anyway? (75 mins, 50 gas?) And you can't use them on the reactor of course.

50m 50g
Hellions 100m

Hellions seen as cheaper. Not only is it a better unit, it is more cost effective

edit: Although realistically the zergs want lurkers, I'm sure they would prefer the BANELORDS

bla bla bla zerg has no build it's reactive!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here's a short write up of stuff that usually happens

ZvZ:
Opening: 14 gas 14 pool ?? hatch (depends on what my opponent opens with)
Unit composition: speedling --> (might be skipped: speedling/baneling) --> roach ling --> roach infestor --> roach infestor hydra --> roach infestor hydra broodlord ling

ZvP:
Opening: 14 gas 14 pool 21 hatch OR 12-13 pool 15 gas 19-20 hatch (if i scout my opponent first and notice nexus before forge or something)
Unit composition: Roach/ling--> roach infestor --> roach infestor broodlord (sprinkle in corruptors vs colossus play and hydras vs early air play)

Opponent FFE's? :D:D:D
Opening: 14 gas 14 pool 21 hatch 31 hatch

ZvT:
Opening: 15 hatch 14 gas 14 pool
Unit composition: ling/bling/muta --> ling/infestor/broodlord (sprinkle in roaches vs hellion builds and other nonbanshee shit that a terran loves to throw at you)

ZvRandom:
Opening: 14 gas 14 pool

So, Stephano - a.k.a Clix's favourite player - won IPL3 and proceeded to call protoss the strongest race.

This is karma and a half for all the Husky jokes to be honest.

THIS IS H TO THE HUSKY HERE

I only got annoyed in the past when people rated Stephano and Nerchio as better than all foreigners and koreans after winning a random 50 euro tournament. It seems like he can compete with the best foreigners nowadays though. I might have to look up his play properly if he keeps it up!

The only thing i don't understand about Stephano now is how his hair works.

Nerchio still sucks though, don't worry m8

I'm sad that IdrA lost to that marauder hellion push though :(

MANDATORY NESTEA REFERENCE

WHAT IS UP?



IM NESTEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!
