Q&A With Day[9]

-If MC can’t kill Stephano before Stephano’s 3 base economy is up, then what hope do I, a mid level Diamond Protoss have against this strategy?

-If your attack is held of and left with loads of Roaches, would you still use them to pressure the front or just simply upgrade them and use them later?

-When I try to emulate the Stephano style and build order, many Protosses become privy the fact doing that very early Chronoed 2-4 Gate Zealot rush, what’s the best way to respond to that?
