hey paul, this is the vid you need to watch. Go to 6:00 or so for the zergVtoss part. that's when he actually goes into how toss can counter the 10pool without getting their econ jacked up.

when it's going against you, hell yea. but we did do some nasty damage when we did 2v2 with my rushes. i've noticed in some of the higher tiered guys i've played, they love to rush, so i just play for it now.

This is what I do, start with 2 gate and rush mad zealots, then go to 4 and keep it up, eventuilly, I'll have 8 gates with a full que. works about 75% of the time.

hell it even worked in a 2vs.2 when my partner quit after the game loaded. I used the dual economy to just keep pumping out a massive amount of units, they couldn't do ****, i was even good enough to split them into two large groups and attack both.

day9 would refer to that as the "just go ******* kill them" idea.

Don't over think it, don't try to get the ideal counter unit for every single unit he has, and don't over think the timing of your attack.... If you have more units........ just go ******* kill them.


I always liked that moto


Brain, 2s this afternoon damnit. I promise I won't be on wow.....unless your just not on

yeah, it tends to work. while they research tech, ill beat them with my wallet.

what i hate is, last time i was zerg rushed and my teammate got killed, i built a wall of pylons so they couldn't come in, then i spammed massive troops, went to counter and they still just walked me. even when they were upgraded. it made me sad.

Any good player will destroy that strat if they hold off the initial 2g Z push. That leaves you with a **** economy, and I hope to god when you have 8 gates you have already expanded at that point.

that's why i said it works 75% of the time. in any case, it leave you with a big army for defense I'm getting good at micro where I can expand and upgrade in the meantime.


The flying of cannons is a wonderful strategy too. just build a **** ton of cannons for a while so it's imposible for them to attack, nothing else, then in the meantime expand in do a 4-stargate and spam voids and a mothership.
