Below, you will find a variety of Starcraft 2 Protoss tips that you can
implement to start winning games of Starcraft 2 right now.
Harass with Probes
This is one of the best Starcraft 2 Protoss tips. Protoss have the advantage of having the Probe, which makes
them the best race for scouting and harassing. After dropping your first Pylon, be sure to send that Probe out to
scout your enemy.
If your enemy is Terran, take advantage of the Probes range (albeit a small range) by having it attack the
SCV that is building the Barracks. This is extremely annoying and highly effective method for
slowing down Terran players.

Proxy with Pylons
You should always drop a Pylon down near your opponent's base or even inside it if you can get away with it.
Warping units to your opponent's base is highly effective. If you can warp them inside your opponents base you can
often take out dozens of harvesters.
A highly effective way for doing this is to set up a proxy via a Pylon or Warp Prism in your opponent's base.
Next, attack from the front with the bulk of your army. While your opponent is distracted dealing with your attack,
warp in a few units at your Warp Prism or Pylon and have them attack the mineral line.
Your opponent will be so busy dealing with the attack at the main base that you can often take out all of his
harvesters before he even realized what happened!
Get an Early Observer
If you want to play Protoss well, you will need to know what your enemy is building. This is why getting an
Observer fast is one of my recommended Starcraft 2 Protoss tips. While getting a mixed army might seem attractive,
it really is beneficial to know what your opponent is up to.
For example, if you scout and see nothing but Marines, you know to quickly tech to Colossi or High Templar. If
you scout and see nothing but Banshees, you know to get a few Phoenix and Observers. You cannot let a Terran or
Protoss enemy sit behind a wall without knowing what he is up to.
Apply Pressure Early and Often
As a Protoss player, your most difficult task will be to establish expansions. Protoss units tend to move slowly
so it is hard to get an expansion up and running safely without wasting large amounts of resources on Photon
To prevent this needless waste, try to expand when attacking. Build a small army of Zealots, Stalkers, and
Sentries, and push your opponent, particularly if they are Zerg.
Alternatively, if you suspect early aggression from your opponent, build Stalkers and Sentries, defend your
base with Force Fields, and as a "counter attack", expand rather than trying to push back right away.
Winning small battles early in the game is key to establishing an expansion - save your minerals for units.
This is the hardest of the Starcraft 2 Protoss tips to perfect. Pressure is an odd concept - sometimes you might
not kill anything but still apply great pressure. As long as your opponent is on the defensive and trapped inside
his base rather than knocking down the door on your own base you are doing well.
By applying these 4 Starcraft 2 Protoss tips, you can start winning a lot more games. In nearly every game you
play, you will want to scout early and harass with your Probe, get an early Observer, a Pylon near your enemy's
base, and attack your opponent early and often.
