Win in 20 minutes or die trying. Photo Overcharge negates so much pressure and drop harass options. Honestly, the best way to win in TvP is to SCV pull...

What works best for me is the 2 widow mine/4 rine drop around 7 minutes into multi drops. More often then not they end up attempting a base trade which fails miserably for them as us Terrans can lift off. :)

One strat I have always been wanting to get around to is Yume's TvP mech. Rines, hellbats and tanks. He is GM and it works wonderfully for him but I'm sure it's tough for n00bs like me to pull it off.

You really don't. Good scouting and solid mechanics will get you to Diamond.

Good scouting and solid mechanics = more than macro... Thank you for solidifying my point.

Well mechanics is essentially the execution of your macro. Scouting is a given. So I guess you were right, need to be able to scout as well.

With the league percentages changed there are a lot of previous platinum players in gold, unit positioning definitely helps in gold as well. It's not just an A-move fest. I got to number 2 in my division last night I'm wondering how much more it will take to get to plat. You guys should sign in and play more often I'm pretty much on everyday :P Need someone to practice with.

Not true, I rarely see you
But, when I will, we'll continue to practice.
