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. Commented Aug 20, 2010 at 20:41

    I think it was first used in one of the Idra vs Silver games.

    @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 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" Commented Aug 21, 2010 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.

That's right, it's Barracks/Factory/Starport. Just wanted to add an illustration which someone did a few days ago of this:

    Awesome as that is, I cannot in good conscience upvote it without it being community wiki.

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.
