Challenge #8 - Opening Gambit


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PW1DewOUprI


We complete Challenge #8 - Opening Gambit. In this challenge we must build 30 marines, 8 seige tanks, and 8 ghosts within 14 minutes in order to get the gold medal. I blast through the challenge on x2 speed because this is mainly a build order challenge. There are faster ways with more optimized build orders, and you can also kill off your own units to lower the necessary supply and finish the challenge even faster. However, what I have below is a very simple build order that works (despite a few macro bumps) and is relatively easy to execute.
