EXTREMELY High Level Protoss Scouting Techniques
Very useful hotkey change which can be used by Protoss players to spam warp gate units, as shown here.

Woongjin_sOs’s Fast Nexus Openers (PvT)
Woongjin Star’s Protoss powerhouse sOs displayed some fantastic PvT during his recent matches in the 2013 WCS KR Season 1 GSL Code S against StarTale_Bomber and Liquid_TaeJa.
In one of these matches, sOs showcased a fast Nexus opener (around 3:50) that revolves around double gas followed by a quick Mothership Core. While double Assimilator openers are not uncommon in PvT nowadays in HOTS, we do not usually see an expansion drop so early.
Unfortunately, the single game in which sOs showcased this opener he was cheesed by Bomber on Daybreak, so we will never know precisely how sOs wanted to follow up this opener if it went unpressured. For example:
- When he would add additional probes to gas?
- Would he build early sentries?
- What would his follow up tech choice be?
Therefore, only the very beginning of the opener is listed. However, this very game showcased the power of the Woongjin Protoss player’s opener: By the time the Nexus completes, you can use Photon Overcharge to defend an early Marine/SCV bunker rush.
Also, as a bonus, I’ve included his opener from Game 1 versus TaeJa, which was a Nexus first into fast 3 Nexus play!
