You, sir, name? wrote:I've tried to open a Protoss game a few times, but there's this bump between my first pylon and the probe that comes after it. Either the probe is delayed due to lack of money, or I'm supply blocked. Just for a few seconds, but still I was like... eww, and figured I was doing something wrong, and checked a few replays, and it seems that other people are getting this as well.
Is this really the way things are in protoss, or were the replays I was checking out done by scrubs who hadn't figured out how to open protoss smoothly?
If you time it just right, the supply block will only be for a second or so. After you get probe-9 paid for, save all your mins for the pylon, once you get it started, get probe-10. And save your chrono's until the pylon is done. Works best to chrono on probes 11-12, 13-14, and 15-16, then save them for warp gate after that.
