What is your usual strategy with regard to resource nodes? I tend to put a req gen down as soon as a point is capped that I expect to hold as my T1 strategy isn't power hungry (SM Tacs and scouts). That gives me the best income I can get for squads and reinforcements during the early skirmishes, and then depending on how those fights go I will add power nodes ASAP.
I ask, because I just watched a replay of a guy who hit me with early predators and he barely bothered with req gens early on - makes sense as he's not interested in delaying his Predator teching, so I wondered if anyone else does anything more outlandish than what I've outlined for myself.
I suppose power hungrier builds might delay a few req gens as they do eat up ALL of my power in T1, so I definitely couldn't do that with flamers etc. around.
