Redoing campaign on hard (already did it on normal but don't have portrait because I did some missions on casual then redid them on normal :3) and finding Welcome to the Jungle difficult. Goliaths seem to be pretty useless vs/ ground, so mixing them with infantry is good until they get angry. Usually get "DEFEAT!" after about 4 canisters.
Please help meeeeee!

Easiest way to do this is not to go after them 1 at a time to start, sit back and get your eco going (take out the protos base NE of your starting base and expand here) mass marines, marauders, medics and goliaths and get the +1 attack and armor for marines.
Use surgical strikes on the protos as they try to cap the gas then retreat back once you have stopped it, until you actually take a couple of gasses things dont get crazy... this gives you time to clear out the other forward pylons and base east of the protos base you destroyed. Killing these 2 forward bases off seriously hurts the reinforcements as they have to warp in right at the top of the map.
if you have taken the protos base as above then push north from the first expansion base and take all the gasses from the east side of the map at once as well as the 2 to the west of your base. Send a good pack of units with medics and some scv to the western gasses to delay the advancing forces and use the rest to secure the eastern scv's. If you do it right you can take all 7 scv's back at once (did this on brutal).
dont get the gas yet untill around the 6-7th protoss attempt to cap.
make marines, marauders and medics. dont bother with goliaths.
at around the 3-4th attempt, take out small base at west ramp and attack into east base from there.(when you have 10-20 units excluding medics)
build new base there. no real need to build defensive structures if you are making units fast enough. maybe a few turrets west of refinery.
i finished with 80+units left on hard.
Mass marines (and a few marauders help) work waaaaay better than goliaths on this map. Goliaths just don't have enough DPS for how much they cost. Think of a ladder game and your opponent massed void rays. Whats the obvious counter? I tried with mass marines and got the achievement for killing all protoss buildings. Just please tell me you have bought stimpack by now. You don't need to expand to win however, it depends if you're going for the achievement or not (don't let any probes cap a terrazine altar) If you just want to complete all objectives you really don't have to.

Goliath's are useless on this mission don't bother wasting any resources on them, all i did was use mass marines with med's and marauders, also to stop the protoss from sealing canisters is to have a small strike team of reapers to take care of the probes and then run back.
