  1. What the common openings are from a Protoss perspective: air+robo variations

Q&A With Day[9]

  • What is your favorite poster behind you?
  • As a Protoss player attempting to expand to a 3rd, I often find that I fall prey to the aggressive ling pushes. Is there any way to expand safely in most maps?
  • How do you think Jaedong would respond if first was doing a gateway heavy push at around 9-10 minutes like Jim did against scarlett in WCS america on belshir vestige?
