I'm hoping that you can assist me with some advice, I've been an avid player for years, mixing between Protoss and Terran, settling this season on Protoss, (yay for the latest patch!). This year I decided to jump into a more eSport mindset and play, climbing the ladders and competing in tourney's etc.
Whilst I'm very familiar with the play style and strategies, I keep coming up against Terran players cheesing me with full Raven assault, filling my base and natural expansion with turrets, which have been effective against ground and air defence.. I've checked forums and youtube, however cant seem to find a solution from this type of attack within my current builds, or unit strategies.
Has anyone else come up against this recently and have a suitable strat to combat?
OK imma answer this anyway to get the ball rolling
The first thing I'd be looking at is scouting: When are you finding out about the ravens? When they get to your base? Can you do something to find out sooner? (e.g. pump an obs across the map or something)
The next thing is your units. In theory Immortals should be good against Turrets right? And you'll need some blink stalkers to keep on top of the ravens as Immortals are too slow to follow
But yeah as I already told you I haven't played for ages and there are way better players around here than me so don't take my word as gospel haha.

Scouting isn't an issue, normally rush for Robo, then two Obs (1 x at main and 1 x army). Issue here is that I'm finding alot of are pushing for high saturation of missile turrets, which is impacting continuous sight of the main.
Timing has varied from game to game, generally mid game.
Removing probes isn't issue, its high volume of the ravens and ground/air composition of balanced army being ineffective due to continuous turret bombardments.
I think you're letting it be a bigger issue that it needs to be.. Be more aggressive and keep the terran's honest.
They can't 'just get heaps of ravens' with out sacrificing something else. This game is balanced relatively well, he can't really be that ahead in tech and units unless you let him.
