A friend of mine asked what some abbreviations in SC mean, and I couldn't answer like

  • DT Wall
  • Gas the Opponent
  • Heavy Metal
  • Joyo build
  • BCs
  • CCMU
  • chobo

and a couple of others ... (I'm gonna ask him again, to fill the question with more data)


DT Wall = A wall of Dark Templar, ground troops can't pass without killing them, which they can't do without detection. Often used on the Utter Darkness mission on Brutal difficulty.

Gas the Opponent = Gas Steal?

Heavy Metal = Terran Mech Heavy Build

Joyo build = A Terran Rush strategy. Did very well in the 2003 WCG tournament.

BCs = Battle Cruisers

CCMU = Cannot Create More Units (I've always heard this from map makers)

Chobo = Newb

  • DT wall is Dark Templar wall (though I'm never sure when that would be useful).
  • BCs are BattleCruisers.
  • Chobo is Korean slang for newbie.
  • Heavy Metal would be what I assume to be heavy mech play as a Terran. This is where you focus on building tanks, thors, hellions, banshees, and ravens.
  • Gas the Opponent (this is a guess) is an offensive gas steal where you build an extractor/assimilator/refinery in your opponents base to deny them the ability to mine from it. Thus forcing them down a different build path than they would normally go.
  • Joyo is a Stracraft: Brood War player, he was famous for a build that would dominate protoss players (http://wiki.teamliquid.net/starcraft/JoyO_Rush)
  • CCMU = Cannot create more units. It means you've maxed out on your army supply at 200/200.

All these questions seem to be Starcraft: Brood War related. I think it may be mistagged.

  • A DT wall, against an opponent that doesn't have detection or AOE, is essentially 100% impenetrable. If you wall in with other units, they can be attacked. – tenfour Mar 20 '13 at 10:47
