anyone who gets rushed early before they weren't smart enough to build defense or a unit will call cheese.

You guys know that the update reduced the effectiveness of early rushes right?

The only time early rushes become a problem for me is in 4v4s, but that's just inherent in that game type. It's easy to hold off 6 pools, 7 pools, reapers. No problem. You just need to be more prepared and have your *** covered.

My normal 1v1 build can easily be converted to an anti-cheese lol.

And yes I have noticed a decrease in cheesing with the update

early rushes are still win. if you can hurt their econ you have an advantage off the bat, they are slow to recover and you can continue to upgrade/build/expand.

i wont discuss rush tactics (since i may, or may not use them in this tourny), but they can be good tools in weeding out the noobs. the best rush is to just send all workers right away to kill the other teams worker within the first 30 seconds. super-duper cheese

Now that's what I call cheese. Lol. That's also the second-most all-in terrible terrible rush ever, right behind the command center/planetary fortress cheese.

The ideal thing to do is constant preassure :P

An occasional cloaked banshee harass can fock up an economy.

It has allot to do with your points gain loss rate. I was rank 15 gold when I was promoted to play. Reason for that is I was playing 5-10 games a day and gaining points at a very high rate.

I have been pestering the **** out of her to play with my reasoning being....she's korean its in her blood. But she refuses.
