Well, I've had SC2 since it first released BUT I've classified myself as an absolutely horrible RTS gamer.
I've been watching Day9 for about a year now, but I've only recently re-installed the game. My last SC2 games were 96 weeks ago and I was even being carried in 4v4 by a Diamond level friend back then.
Now to the main point, I really want to learn this game properly for myself and have fun in the 1v1 scene, but I don't know where to start. Lets assume I know nothing except that I have to build Probes and Pylons (yes I prefer Protoss).
I often hear Sean refer to the timings of certain structures and units, but I've never found a comprehensive guide to building times and the most common tech-tree builds, how do you get to learn those properly?
I'm not looking for an easy way out, I just don't want to learn the wrong things, make them almost second-nature and then realize I'm totally screwing it up and have to learn things anew.
Lets go with it like this, I play Protoss and I want to learn how to play Protoss properly, but lets disregard micro-management for now.
What are the basic build times for my structures, which is a decent all-round opening without having to immediately dive into PvZ, PvT and PvP specifics (it'd be too much to handle tbh), what are the key focus points I should set for myself before I start refining my play? These are some of the noob questions I'd love to have answers for.
