Curious about expansion strategy on solar

Postby somen00b » Tue Aug 23, 2016 12:36 pm

Since its the only map ever featured to have 4 expansions, the most I've seen in other maps is 2, I was wondering what people think is the best purchasing strategy for them. Meaning when and in what situation should each one of the four be purchased? I know solar isn't in the current mapset, but it might be again someday.

Buy the first expo on your side of the map right away, 5:00 minutes into the game. Buy the two expos in the corners as soon as you push past half. Drop a couple towers/observers/overseers on the high ground and at the entrance of the expo so you can see anyone coming. If the other team is turtling and you can't win, buy their expo as well.

Buy at least base defense 1 as soon as you buy a corner expo. Buy level 2 before buying the other team's expo.
