Who said you have to 1 base? I 4 gate 80% of the time when I decide to throw up a FE. I go pylon > gate > cyber > nexus > 3 more gates. This not only allows me to protect my FE, but I can push back. And if your opponent gets a FE, why would you let him do whatever he wants? You have to react by being aggressive or throwing up a FE yourself.

Come on dude every top level protoss 4 gates but they know when to use it and when not to use it. I dont even like 4 gating unless I go get a FE but saying that it is for noobs is just generalizing lower tier protoss players. It only makes you skillless if you are a one trick pony.

When people say 4gate as bad thing, they mean 4 gates one base all-in...

Nice, thanks for the tip.

Now that I tuned in, I know that day9 is casting the root gaming tournament live right now.

That must've been nice. I did that once when I spilled some liquid on the keyboard. Took each key out, cleaned with alcohol and then put them back. The keyboard was so clean afterwards. Tried to do the same with my laptop keyboard, broke one of the keys

Well, massing an army rather fast is a speciality, but, scouting with an observer as P or scanning as T is the best way to go. Also, using something like a barrack to scout will help a lot

wow, never realized muta harass can do that for ya, lol. It's the reason I build turrets and photo cannons around my mineral line whenever I play T/P against a Z

I'm always up for practice although I'm only silver, so, I'll leave the decision to play a game to you. Of course, I'm still interested in one game to see how well I fare

hmm, how many workers did Z have? Something that people forget is that with more exps, you'll likely make more workers unless you've already mined a decent part of your exp. My point is, you army max is 200 and 50 drones means a max of 150 and so on. If the Z was making workers, then he'll have less of an army against Huk which means that HuK can go base by base taking out exps while resisting the same army level

Well, I wouldn't call 4 gate cheese, because, it isn't, however, I see your point about just making 4 gates and then crushing your opponent with it if not scouted

Well he didn't actually win

He did hold out for like 20 minutes while being 80 food down most of the time. Brought the difference to 20 food at one point too.

My Filco Mx Brown keyboard will be in my hands in 9 hands. So pumped. I've been asked to join a non pro team...debating on it.

I won my match due to my opponent having internet issues. Next opponent is a 2100 zerg with 1200 1v1s played. I'm beating 2500s Z's at about 50% so I will probably win.

Day9's music is sickk right now.

I never 4 gate FE vs terran or zerg, only Protoss without the expo. You really need observers asap in almost every game. 2 gate FE with robo then 3rd gate is much safer.

Never underestimate your opponent There's no telling how well he plays. I've played players much lower than me and was crushed by them, while I've crushed higher level players as well, so, no telling what could happen

Looks like you were so excited about your Filco that you lost a finger somewhere

Yeah, the g15 is pretty easy to take apart. I feel like it was kinda wasted since I just ordered the BlackWidow keyboard. Oh well, going to give my g15 to a good friend for Christmas.
