Protoss FTW :)

I really like the new Protoss units and how nicely they cover the different requirements you'd need to fight an enemy.  The new Warp Ray has to be one of my favourites with its incrementally increasing firepower against large targets.  I can see using Warp Rays as a kind of hunter killer against big enemy assets.

The Protoss in SC1 were always very vulnerable to swarm strategies (much more so than their Terran counter parts). Most of their units had explosive damage and so against small and midsize units only did half to 3/4 damage respectively. Except for the Reaver and the Templar's psi-storm (neither or which are cheap) they really had nothing to counter it. It's nice to see that flaw corrected in SC2 to show off just how powerful the Protoss really are.
"The reason for this is that the original Fortran got so convoluted and extensive (10's of millions of lines of code) that no-one can actually figure out how it works, there's a massive project going on to decode the original Fortran and write a more modern system, but until then, the UK communication network is actually relying heavily on 35 year old Fortran that nobody understands." - Flipside

The question is if you can do your Zergling rush before your Protoss opponent makes his first two or three Zealots.

The tools to maintain order are: lies, double standards, and hypocrisy. The most powerful and the most insidious of them is hypocrisy

Yes, and a non-panic-inducing one at that.
