Just had the most epic 4v4 match ever. Lasted 70 minutes. If you feel so inclined, here's the replay.

Hey all - looking for some 1s advice. Especially how to counter the new fast 7 roach push. Got smacked hard by that twice last night. Thinking about 1g/immortal or 1g/phoenix.

If anyone wants to add me, feel free to. I mostly play with a2k and ls2 people, but I will play with just about anyone.

serpint / 712 is my info.

Use forcefields.
I don't think you want to waste 125/100 so that a phoenix can lift a 75/25 roach. Not to mention they're not going to be much use when hydras come around.

What the hell are a2k and ls2 people?

a2k is a clan I play with and ls2 is a car site that a bunch of us play from.

I was thinking the 1g/phoenix to guard against muta harass as well. But yes, they are worthless against hydras.

Zerg usually go either muta ling or roach hydra.

The two I played against last night went roach/hydra with muta harass. I got caught out of my base both times and got surrounded by burrowed roaches at chokes. Basically got stuck to 1b while the zerg expanded at will. Couldn't even launch a counter. Then they just moved mutas in to snipe workers with hit and runs until I was dead.

It might not have been so bad if I didn't get caught out while trying to probe/push them with my army. Even when I killed their army off, I couldn't rebuild fast enough to be ready for the next attacks.

I've encountered it as well. It's pretty strong. I'm now experimenting with 12gate/14forge buid as it counters 7rr quite easily and can punish zerg fast expanding with cannon + zealot push and also sets you up for FE. I believe a really fast 4 gate, with 10 pylon, gate and with chrono saved for wg tech would be on time as well. I wouldn't recommend 1 gate robo as most zergs will switch to muta ling after this push from my experience. 1 gate stargate with void rays could work, but I'm not sure about timings. Phoenixes fail against this pretty hard, you simply won't have enough ground army to defend.

Anyone knows if there will be a free stream from Blizzcon somewhere or I'd have to buy tickets to watch it online? I'm really excited for FruitDealer vs Tester game.

I tried one game by 2g/sgate and it allowed me to kill their first push quick with 2 void rays doing all the work, but then they switched to mutas and I got annihilated. Roaches are quite the problem now for protoss since we can't hit them with range from tanks or marauders. Stalkers just get melted by them, so its not a good trade.
