Description

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.

Analysis

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.
