Liquipedia Weekly #8
This week's Weekly concludes our strategic adventures. Since we have covered Terran and Zerg before, we are now taking Protoss matter into hand!
In the matchup against Terran, Protoss players had to face unforseen inconveniences.

Fleshing out the implications of a build as general and complex as this one is hard. Every time something gets patched, there will be some leftovers and rough edges that need to be worked on again.
