What is the Destiny Cloud Fist build? I've heard SC2 players talking about it.

H to the Usky Husky came up with it when casting a game. It describes the standard terran 1/1/1 build which is 1 barracks, 1 factory and 1 starport.

He made up the name because, according to him, he would say "one" too many times trying to say "one one one", so this made it easier. – StrixVaria Aug 20 '10 at 20:41
I think it was first used in one of the Idra vs Silver games. – Piaskal Aug 20 '10 at 21:18
@Peter I know, but did he have to repeat it? I don't particularly like Husky as a caster, but I try and put up with the fact that people do. However, when all of a sudden he has to be "gangsta" then the hackles on the back of my neck bristle. – tzenes Aug 20 '10 at 23:11
@tzenes I can see how husky wouldn't be everyone's cup of tea. that said, I am pretty sure he is not seriously trying to be gangsta. I don't think a gangsta would ruin their tough guy image with video of themselves puking after skydiving :) IMO, he just likes being silly, like with "destiny cloudfist" – Peter Recore Aug 21 '10 at 15:44
@Peter H to the Usky is a reference to JayZ. I don't want to get into a discussion over whether or not he's trying to be gangsta and why I dislike it, the bottom line is I don't. – tzenes Aug 21 '10 at 17:59

Awesome as that is, I cannot in good conscience upvote it without it being community wiki. – Davy8 Sep 15 '10 at 3:02

According to the "Bureau of Un-Newbing the Newbs", all "Destiny Cloud Fist" really means is that it is the fastest way to get flying units to attack your enemy.
