I'm Zerg and finding Maelstrom and Psionic Storm very annoying... it's impossible to micro your way out of a Psi storm because it happens so fast . Not to mention that your army is pretty big. And what about Maelstrom? That's also annoying....4x4 AoE is pretty good, too =/. I swear, those two spells were MADE to kill Zerg .

Somehow it seems more cost effective than defiler plague, but I dunno...taking away 'toss hp IS rather nice .

Im Protoss myself, and I have used Maelstrom and Psi Storm combo many times, and I do know of several ways to stop it. First, take out the enemy before he builds a Templar Archives. Oftentimes Starcraft players, if the want to rush, they don't do it fast enough, and the Protoss have like 50 photon cannons by that time. But a direct attack surely wont work. Also, you could try Plague with your Defilers. Its a very annoying ability that works wonders when you combine it with your Hydras. It may cost a lot, but its very powerful at the right time.

You gotta micro your troops grunty

Dont have them all clumbed together when templars and DA's are around your asking for it if you do. Once ya stuck in either storm its a lil late

Those abilites turn the tide agiast any race... kills all the marines and medics vs terrans, vs other protoss can do that extra damage in that good old goon v goon battle. Its very effective there also as ofocurse while your moving ya units from under the psi storm they cant attack and take damage... its win win.

You could always get a few queens and broodling the templar... Dark Archons are a bit different as if queens coming for there High temps they might feedback ya, but normally they wont see ya coming

Remember ensare also will slow down that mass of zealots running for your helpless still hydra's.

Ofcourse u can always pump some ultras out they can take a couple of full psi storms hehe...

to stop that combination is jus to to build up your defense and once you attack your enemy and he has the Dark templars u jus focus on the with some part of your army but dont put every one jus maybe 3 or 4 or you can always jus ude drop ship to destroy the buildin before they start to make them but its your choice
