hey ppl share some rush strategy for bloodbath ( incase u dont no it is a very small map) any race!
5-pool and rush with 6 lings
Rushing does wonders in small maps
Yeah, 5-pool could pretty much seal the game for you in BB.
I had a friend that taught me some... interesting strategies on bloodbath. Dirty strategies. I forgot some of them. This one's my favorite:
Hatchery rush. Usually only works if you find your enemy early with your Overlord, but can be done otherwise. Works best against Terran. Build two drones and then make a Hatchery in your enemy's base. While it is building, make a Spawning Pool back at your base. He won't be able to kill it unless he uses most/all of his workers. Once the hatchery is about 3/4 finished, send three drones into his base and make three Sunken Colonies as quickly as possible. He will have a difficult time killing all of them, especially of you can micromanage well and send more workers.
That is obvious! Just build units like crazy, and while you have the enemy in your hands (you basically won almost) you rally point your factories to the heart of the enemy base.
Make nothing the entire game except an overlord and max your supply of drones. While you're maxing, use a few of them to scout along with your overlord. You should know where they are by the time you've maxed your supply of drones. Then stop mining and go kill them with all your drones. You should be able to take them easy.
-This will probably close to guarantee you a victory. The zerglings come out faster than any other teir 1 melee unit. It is a matter on how fast you build everything too get them out that could almost 100% guarantee a win.
Also scouting is an issue. You have to know where they are, because going to the wrong base with your lings would give a Protoss player time to begin zealot production. The whole time you are rushing, you also need to keep pumping out and sending more lings as backup to reinforce your units. Otherwise there's a good chance that between workers and basic units, your lings will die and your opponent will gain a huge advantage over you.
6 pylon zeal rush
5 pool sunken/zergling rush. Just take a couple drones with you on the attack. If you lose the rush, you're screwed, but it's hard to fend it off if you (the attacker) are good at micro. I've pulled this one off correctly once. I've never done the hatchery rush successfully.
Where did you learn to play. Even with 200 drones, they only have 40 life and they do 5 damage (slow attack speed). The basic warriors will have your base slain LONG before you can get 200 drones in your stockpile!
..I said make 1 overlord and max your supply of drones. I'm pretty sure a total of 2 overlords and 1 hatchery isn't 200 supply, so that's obviously not what I meant.
Drones still suck even if you have 17 of them.
Well it's not like I'd ever do it, but it could still work.. just a thought in case he loves drones a lot
You suggested a strategy that you didn't even try and you know it won't work? Good job Azrael lol.
..in an unbiased light, I also suggested the best strategy so far.. so I guess.
You just need to 6 ling rush, or cannon rush your opponent.
Have you never tried a hatchery rush before?
Yes, I have. That's why I said I've suggested the best rush strategy so far.
