Further Experimentation Required: Protoss in HotS -
Heart of the Swarm is the first expansion set to Blizzard Entertainments sci-fi real time strategy game, StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty. Heart of the Swarm continues the epic story from Wings of Liberty with an all-new campaign that focuses on Kerrigan, the erstwhile Queen of Blades. New multiplayer content will also be included in the expansion, as well as new features and upgrades to the Battle.net online platform.
An interesting, albeit negative, outlook at the new Protoss units of Heart of the Swarm - many valid points throughout.

Scouting and dealing with harass in PvP -
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:
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!
