I want to learn a Protoss build order, and instead of looking one up, I decided to try to make my own. This is my attempt.
I got my Dark Templar out at about 4:10. I tech straight to it and add as many gateways as I could manage along side it.
|15||0:38|| ||Send probe scout here (send after first pylon on 4-player maps)|
|23||2:39|| ||Third pylon should be placed outside the opponent's base|
|36||4:35|| ||The fourth DT is delayed due to gas shortage, so might cut the third gate. expand earlier or grab a robo?|
I lose in this replay. If instead of hitting the mineral line with my first wave of Dark Templar, I had gone straight for the pylon powering the Robotics Facility, I could have stopped him from ever getting detection. The build was smooth up until that point. I may consider cutting the fourth Warpgate in order to expand a bit earlier and grab the extra gas.
