    #
    To introduce myself, I am a platinum level protoss player. I've been playing RTS games most of my life, but only really started playing sc2 about a year and a half ago. I'm currently teaching two of my friends starcraft, ...

    #
    first off, i'm a platinum (who rarely ladders, so that might be lower or higher than it should be) protoss player who frequently watches day[9], huskystarcraft, and lagtv.my opinion on static defenses, is that turtle>rush>greed>turtle. in lower leagues, the metagame ...

  • as a protoss in reply to Questions about daily 582 (Z) by Sorrysaved

    #
    i can't answer 1 or 3, but i can provide limited insight into 2. i think broodlord-corrupter-infestor would be better than you think. phoenix, especially with no damage upgrades as day[9] pointed out multiple times, don't do well vs corrupters ...
  • Thought on Daily #582

    #
    In daily #582 Day[9] discusses protoss vs mutalisk. He emphasizes positioning over composition. He mentions several times that it's good to attack a particular spot because we know the mutas are on the other side of the map.
  • spore? in reply to ZvDT by BILB0

    #
    why don't you just build a spore crawler? you don't need an evo chamber anymore, unless you're playing WoL.

    just respond and i'll provide it. to keep the length of the essay down to one lifetime i didn't go into explicit detail into everything, but one or two things that need clarifying should be fine.also, sorry for the lack ...
  • my REALLY LONG WINDED advice. in reply to [H] Protoss Basics by Dizzy

    #
    for bronze level protoss i recommend just getting a ton of colossi and stalkers. mix in some zealots, sentries, and archons if you want; but for now just get a lot of colossi. those things are really good. the only ...
  • here's my further thought in reply to As a Zerg player by Kleinschmidt.Jeff

    #
    i decided, after reading all the comments i've received, that this would make a good possible transition for an aggressive 1 gate expand, like i used to do. if i see a fast third base then i can always transition ...

    #
    i'm having difficulty finding the vod
  • thank you! in reply to Well let me tell you what this is: by KarelTheTossMaster

    #
    thank you, i tried googling this before posting here but found nothing. i'll check out the naniwa gsl vod. it's good to know this was used by pros, and this makes sense vs 3 base zerg because no roaches will ...
  • about the force fields in reply to usually... by cliff.tam

    #
    the force fields should (if done properly) prevent the lings from getting a surround without blocking your zealots in, and then when the lings are dead trap the roaches from running.

    #
    you can't just keep building supply depots because 200/200 is the maximum limit
  • that's all true, but in reply to Like a 4 gate with +1 and no stalker... by LarmaX

    #
    because 2 zealots + 1 sentry = 2 stalkers for price you can afford to produce off more gates, and with guardian shield and force field zealots can trade surprisingly well with roaches and lings just melt. the spines and ...
  • 6:30-7:00 in reply to answer by Earl_of_Nutella

    #
    with my unrefined trials i've hit around 6:30-7:00, but that might change with refinement and/or waiting for another warp in.
  • what ratio in reply to From zerg perspective... by cliff.tam

    #
    of roaches to lings to spines (i guess spines would probably be a number not a ratio) would you get? would you keep droning or stop entirely? would you get queens? any of this information would be helpful
  • crazy pvz build that might work

    #
    i haven't gotten around to the refinement stage yet, but here's the standing title for the build: 1 base zealot-sentry 5gate +1 all in it's a mouthful and sounds insane, but my vs ai and custom game vs a friend ...

    To me, if someone wants to cheese that's great for them. If you lose to cheese that's in general your fault. About half the time when matched against protoss or random i'll cheese (cannon rush vs protoss, 2gate vs random) ...
