Hey, this is Scvrush and with onemanzerg giving you guys another audio commentary live casted this time on high orbits. I will again be playing as Terran and my awesome partner as zerg. High orbit is a fairly favorable map for us since it allows us to mutually defend our bases together.

The game starts off with us spawning on the bottom location on high orbit. Our scout failed a bit and we did not see a rush coming until protoss has 2 zealot at our base. I give some basic instructions and strategies in regarding how to deal with rushes such as a 4 gate or mass ling. (MASS bunkers at the ramp is the most effective way of dealing with this). After the rush, the game goes into a macro game.

Tempest

Tempest is a starcraft-2 protoss unit
Tempest is the new Heart of the Swarm unit in Starcraft 2. Its basically a seige tank but has better range. It is also a tier 3.5 because it requires a fleat beacon. If you want to dominate the late game, this is the unit to get. Tempest has the longest range in the game, but the sight range is smaller simliar to a siege tank.

Strengths

 

Weaknesses

The unit is relatively inexpensive that is produced in a Stargate. It has really strong attacks against light unit types like marines in small numbers. Harassing workers without anti air is a key advantage that protoss don't have before Heart of the Swarm.   Any anti air land units will absolutely destory this unit. Especailly fast hydralisk and stimmed marines.
