Good vs. These Races / Strategies:

 

Bad vs. These Races / Strategies:

This is great vs. opponents early in the game and when they have a poorly, if at all, defended base.   This is bad if your opponents have Stalkers, Roaches or Marauders - or any other later tier unit with ranged attacks.

What to do in Failure:

- Continue harassing the enemy.- Start attacking the enemy structures as Reapers do heavy damage to them.- Switch tech to normal units and push on the weakened enemy base.   - Switch tech to a normal strategy and D up as your opponent likely has a slight advantage.- Utilize your remaining Reapers for scouting the map and leveraging ledges to scout, stay safe and potentially pick off units.
