This build order is really easy to execute. He is designed for beginner or new player who want a solid build order to improve and to reach a good level. The goal is to do an early pressure and to go on a stalkers / Colossi army. This build can be done against Zerg, Terran or Protoss with almost no variation from Bronze to Master (I've done this build in a Bronze to Master serie and i already shared it in French. You can find it here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y3ZcjfmIpZ0&list=PL7fQH898xunJcUWLwhrljswpXnD0EJi3H . The build is really effective and he already helped many Protoss to go to diamond or Master.
Why i did this build order ?
Few tips :
This build is designed to be good in defense and in attack. You can use it without adaptation until mid-diamond. In mid-diamond you should do some small adaptations like switching to zealots / archon when you reach the critical number of stalkers and colossi.

Thank you very much for answering. I'll try with the adepts. :)

You can totally open with 2 adepts first. It' pretty powerful and if you are good with the shade, you can kill many drones. But it require more micro.

When I played this build against zerg, the zerglings surrounded my stalkers in the beginning. What adaptations should I make? If I make zealots, will this change the build too much?

Woops sorry :D Total mistake from me :D
I though that this comment was on the other replay.
Well with this build order you are able to hold a mana build. Simply because you open with a fast robo and fast immortal. But you need to scout it.
When i explain the build order, i explain the "basic things" but there is some adaptation that you can do. For example, holding a 12 pool require tu chronoboost a zealot before the 2 stalkers. Holding some cannon rush require using probes.
Against a Mana build (3G warp), you can hold by only chronoboost immortal, adding battery shield a little earlier. I lost recently against this kind of opening (my PvX build so a 4 stalkers, expand robo) using the mana build. It wasn't even close : When i came, he had 2 battery shields and 2 Immortals.

I think you're thinking of the fake stargate into DT rush opening you posted recently :D Or am I misunderstanding? This is the macro style beginner build from a while ago.

To be honest, this kind of build is a total counter to DT opening so it's a lose most of the time.
I already play against a similar things and won. my first DT forced a recall then i had time to do my zealot charge and i was able to win by focusing warp prism with stalkers.
The best build to counter this is proxy robo or robo all-in without expand.

Have you played against Mana's 3 Gate 1 Robo with this build? How did it fare? What would you do against it?
