Q&A With Day[9]

-If I do not know what I am looking for should I still scout my opponents base at the start of the game? What are some ways I can figure out what I am looking for?

-I understand the importance of upgrades in any matchup, especially in the late game, but do you feel that upgrades in mirror matchups are even more of a necessity?

-A 2 gate opening typically puts you behind on Probe count. If Tristan wouldn't have taken out probes with his initial Zealots, would his build have still worked?
