WiseOldDog's guide
is not about gameplay itself, but about the time and mindset between games. A very valuable and short read.

Heaven's Guide about generic build orders.
He made a lot of tutorials (see above) but this one specifically is great for new players as the first couple minutes of every game just matter so much.

BRNKoINSANITY's "Weirdly Specific Tutorials for Supcom".
As the name implies, tutorials about niche topics. Sadly there are not a lot of them.

Jagged Appliance's impromptu com drop tutorial on stream.
How to com drop a T2, T3, TML com. Relevant for 1v1 and team games.

nine2's guide to writing your own custom hotkeys,

FAF School
