As an MA nerd i feel like this section is a quite underused so i figured i'd ask people what they're favourite openers (in (high level) pres primarily) are or which ones you find the strongest. I for one have always liked the ravens even though it can be tough to get good seekers in. The reason for this is i feel like it's a decent alrounder, u can transition into anything and u dont get super shut down if someone brings like a thor. I really like the ghost add on for medium pres and below where people make enough mistakes for you to punish but i feel like he lacks value pre sd against high tier 2- tier 1 players.

Thoughts on banshees?
I feel like the should be fine, often the barrage comes from 2-3 banshees at the same time so the damage penalty shouldnt be too harsh and the 75 mineral increase seem passable. Does the barrage range change a lot?

Are BC's a risky opening in a sense that if it doesn't work, you can easily get punished? That's sort of how my games work out when I open BC's, but maybe I'm not following up properly or something.

getting 3 battlecruisers is not risky. it's suicide. getting one however is risky but can work out if you catch your opponent offguard and manage to land some yamatos

Yea i prefer starting with one with the behemoth core upgrade. You can compare it to a ghost but for 100 more u get some farm from the bc and you stop the enemy ellites from going near you (or more realistically you force them to spend 400 on a ghost which uses emp). Getting more than one doesnt accomplish much, they still all get shut down by the same ghost and there are more price efficent pure farming choices (like reapers, oracles). Only time having 3 is more useful than one is if an inexperienced player gets specifically collossus, sicne then u can 3-shot it. But even in that case a ghost for you is probably going to be more useful later on anyways.

Wait....what? Ghost is. O problem to bc, and hardly a threat. The problem or threat is as soon as people see 3 bc they spam vik/Corr for half the price. Ghost emp,and snipe isn't even a thing to bc. If you lose bc to a gh, your problem is your awareness and control.

Nobody here said they lose bcs to ghosts

just as gus says, you shouldnt lose bcs to ghosts but a ghost will emp the bcs and remove their yamoto. Without their yamoto they become very overpriced for their mediocre farming and due to their slow speed, they become a walking target late game.

A walking target? That is such a lie, BCS are ships, they fly. So it would be a floating target.
