    LOL, after watching that 1v4 Protoss very hard I realized very hard is just fast building but not too smart. They had two expansion bases that they weren't using to gain resources, they had a path to sneak past your cannons. Not saying I could do it, but looking at that I see now kind of how the AI operates.

    Ok got it finally, i see the secret is to move slow and have all cannons back to back so the AI runs away from them. I was moving faster trying to get to the nexus before they teched up too high but it seems it actually made them tech up faster probably has something to do with 3 of units the AI has. If they have there zealots & stalkers running away in a ball they wont make new units or tech up until those are dead.

    Quick question,

    Are stalkers good against mass void rays? If so, how do you micro them with Blink? Any videos?

    Yeah stalkers works good against void rays, just blink them to & under the rays as fast as possible so more of them are in firing range. The faster you take out voidrays the better. If they charge up they are easily 5x more deadly.

    I think? phoenixes are the way to go, especially since stalkers are armored. But blink stalkers should definitely work out too.

    Edit: On hindsight, I find it somewhat odd that I've never once encountered a voidray in my solo matches...

    I hate using Void Rays!

    One of my friend always uses them, a bunch of us play 4v4 and he walls in (gate, core, pylo), builds 3 stargates a beacon and just pumps them out while the rest of the team goes terran mass marine... annoying!

    I have a few ideas but they seem risky for 4v4..

    I might try proxy pylon with observer vision into his base since he never has units, but with marine backup, I can get taken out easily.



    So question of the day, what are your 4v4 tips/tricks?
