    A toss player will usually block his ramp with 3-4 zealots until he has archons and templars if a zerg is offencive in early game.

    Yes, cannons are very important vs zerg because they make it easyer to kill lings or lurkers.

    I get extractor/refinery/assimilator pretty much straight after the first pool/barracks/gateway. So i have gas after about 2-3mins. And i doubt you can gain 1200minerals in 5 minutes. You will be spending it on other necessities.

    Depends... The golls and the dropship can be microed, but on land maps it is usually better to get tanks. U should be able to get a few tanks in 5 minutes if u tech to it...

    i'll check it out, i doubt 40 hydras can't deal with it, besides, he should have made 4-6 lurks...

    6 cannons: 900/0
    40 hydras: 3000/1000

    ...sounds to me that u're talking bulshit, unless u didn't mentioned that you had some zealots

    Yes, but also harder to reach. And in most MUs u will need an expansion before u tech to transports if u use the usual techs.

    Of course. I make 2 exps usually before transporting my original base probes or 1st xpan's to an island xpan and use them there.

    Btw. I now use Protoss. I have this thing were i get crappy at one team. Use another, realise im good with them, and keep using them until i start to lose with them...alot. Weird ey.
