Starcraft 2 Elite Guide – Assumptions To Make When Scouting Protoss

Learning to Scout can be what separates the good players from the bad in Starcraft 2. Most players know how to scout with Terran, Protoss, and Zerg, yet at the same time they have absolutely no idea what they are seeing other than the obvious. Today we’re going to talk about certain assumptions you can make when playing as any race and scouting the Protoss.

“I scouted a Gateway warping in and I see an Assimilator.”

This can mean many things it depends on what comes next that will give you the information you need. If he follows with another Gateway you can assume Stalkers, Sentries, and Zealots coming you’re way rather quickly. If he follows with a Cybernetics Core you can use this scouting information against him quickly and beat them with a rush strategy. If he spent the 150 minerals on the Cybernetics Core that’s money on tech that he didn’t spend on units and they most likely are Chronoboosting their Nexus for Probe production leaving them mostly undefended. This is a good time to strike!

“I scouted a Forge warping in.”

This most likely means he’s building defenses on his ramp or by his mineral line. You can use this information to assume that he just spent at least 300 minerals on the Forge and a single cannon (or more). Making this the perfect time to expand. You generally see Protoss players making more than a single cannon to defend their ramp so just estimate how much they have spent in this manner and use the time to your advantage by expanding or teching.

“I scouted and all I saw was a Nexus.”

This is a sure sign that you are about to be proxy rushed or worse… cannon rushed. If you see this you need to make sure that you have your ramp blocked to the best of your ability.

Also you may want to scout your own base because sometimes their scout gets through without you knowing and you most likely have a Pylon or Photon Cannon aimed right at your mineral line. If they aren’t Cannon rushing they’re definitely Zealot rushing so again just be sure to block your ramp off and in the event you’re playing as Zerg just drop a Spine Crawler or two down right by your ramp for quick defenses.

“I scouted 3 Gateways.”

The 3 Gate Expand is a popular build for the Protoss. Just seeing the 3 Gateways does not mean they are definitely going to expand because they very well could just be massing enough units to overpower you very early in the game. When you see this you want to at least match this or stop this quickly it would take a matter of 3 or 4 minutes before he has quite a sizable force big enough to win the match at least.

“I scouted 4 Gateways, a Cybernetics Core, and a Robotics Facility.”

This is what you want to see because this means he most likely has nothing but buildings. One base plays cannot support 4 gateways and a Robo Facility and they are going to produce units ultra slow. If you see this go in for the attack with whatever you got.

Ps3 Hdmi – Far Better Value Than Xbox 360

I was debating which game console to get, the Wii, Xbox 360 or the PS3 HDMI. As a male with family of two kids, overall the PS3 HDMI was the best value for the money. Since PS3 and Xbox 360 are aiming for the same market, I was comparing the PS3 HDMI more to the 360:

Pros:
-Most powerful system among 3 consoles.
-Blu Ray player included, also it can be upgraded via the internet. It is full functioning Blu Ray player, not watered down, the picture quality if awesome.
-Solid hardware, Xbox 360 hardware has many problems.
-Includes wireless Wi-Fi, but with Xbox 360 you have to buy it separately.
-Free online gaming, unlike Xbox’s which you have to pay each month.
-Internet web browser, which Xbox doesn’t have.
-Better menus for navigation than 360.
-Controllers have not only rumble, but also motion sensor like Wii.
-Hard drive is easily upgradable and inexpensive, unlike 360 which is expensive and very hard to upgrade if you want to put your own hard drive.
-Latest movies and TV shows can purchased online, 360’s Netflix has more titles but are old titles.
-Playstation Eye(motion sensing camera) accessory allows for motion games like Wii.

Cons:
-Need more latest titles of movies(but same or better than 360 or Apple TV)
-Not all movies can be rented in the first few weeks of release, but have to be purchased.
-Need more variety of games, actually true for all 3 systems.

Overall compared to Wii: Kids will want the Wii no matter what anyone says as long as their friends have it.

The quality of Wii games are decreasing, game developers are not integrating the motion functionality well with the games. It feels like developers made the games and then added the motion feature as an afterthought. PS3’s included controller has motion sensors like the Wii, also Playstation Eye camera has motion sensoring also. There are PS3 HDMI accessories for Guitar Hero and Rock Band which allows physical games on the PS3 HDMI like the Wii. So you can do play physical games like the Wii on the PS3 HDMI.

Overall compared to Xbox 360: Even though Xbox 360 is less expensive initially, if you add everything that PS3 HDMI has, the Xbox 360 is much more expensive. People forgot this. 360 has more games than PS3 HDMI because it was introduced a year earlier, but starting in 2008 PS3 HDMI is coming out with many high quality exclusive games now that introduction period is over(PS3 HDMI has Metal Gear Solid 4, Little Big Planet, Socom Confrontation, Resistance 2, Gran Turismo 4, etc). Unless you will play Halo or Gears of War, get the PS3 HDMI, it is a much better value.
