Q&A With Day[9]

-In many PvP's I've played where both players opened with a Robo build, the first player to expand generally loses because the aggressor will have 4 more Zealots which seems to tilt the tide until the ~3+ Colossus count.
-You talked about "Unit Composition Skewing", and I was just curious if this technique opens you up to timing pushes (for instance with stronger stalkers when you have more Zealots)
