They both went 3 rax reaper, and single targeted one of us down. Seems impossible to defend against, given the mass of reapers. In a 1v1 scenario, we could at least deal with this due to the fact that reaper numbers start small, and don't immediately snowball.
However, in a 2v2 scenario, there are two possible players to target with twice the amount of reapers on a larger map. If my teammate and I were to either be playing P or Z, it is incredibly difficult to defend with zealots, lings, or adepts. Due to the map size, if I were to defend my ally, I would be left open. Vice versa.
Seems like a difficult thing to defend solo, and if the defense is a team effort, the map is so huge that there is bound to be an opening for more reaper harass. My question is: what race combinations deal with this well, and what openings should we do?
I think assuming double three rax reaper preemptively for defense without scouting is also unreasonable every game, but that might just be the only answer? I'm quite confused on how to approach this.
FWIW: I'm 1v1 Diamond consistently, ally is 1v1 Masters consistently. We hit 2v2 Masters once. Currently in 2v2 Diamond.
