I’ve spent my last couple games working on actually looking at my minimap. I don’t have any rules I am following to do this, just whenever I find myself with spare time, I am look at the minimap.
The first thing this made me realize was that I wasn’t scouting or getting any data about my enemy. As Protoss I get observers, I am now making a few and tossing them at various points on the map so I can catch when the enemy is moving toward me, and which base they are aiming for, as well as catching drops as they leave/approach.
A result of this has allowed me to catch drops WAY faster. See it coming and warp in a few stalkers to deal with it. As well as repositioning my army to get an more advantageous approach to kill their army. I even caught a build that would normally destroy my build, so I could tech switch and do so major damage and prevent them from doing serious damage.
Long story short, it turns out the minimap and scouting are very important. This has had me destroying every silver I play against and hope this will be the wave I ride into Gold.
