Q&A With Day[9]

-You mentioned scouting defensively and sniffing out suspicious rushes by checking the front ramp; but how do you scout to determine if you can make an offensive push against the opponent?

-Do you recommend blocking off the ramp as Protoss(with buildings and 1 Zealot) to prevent any early rushes? Or do you feel it is better to just build around your Nexus?

-My main problem I have while playing as Zerg is when do I make a Drone and when do I make a attacking Unit? How should I spend my Larva?
