    Attack with ground units. Have your ally go with air units. Ground units should be Zealots, Dragoons, and Archons. Don't forget to have some cannons.

    if your enemy is zerg, fully upged corsairs + DT = gg

    or just do mass reaver drops, that might do it ;)

    I like mass dropping in fastest possible map, since it can get almost impossible to go straight through the front.

    Just mass your first basic unit with your partner.

    Yeah. You should catch most Big Money players off guard. In all 2v2's you have to mass your first tier unit and look to attack. Just make sure to be quick and move out fast.

    I like to cannon rush. Send a few probes out, find where they are, then start building cannons in their base, and at their entrance, sealing them in. While you're distracting them with your aggression, your teammate can worry about making actually good units. You can even help him out with some cannon defense for him, and make sure you make some for yourself too. It's a pretty funny strategy, and effective as well :p

    That's why it's a cannon RUSH. You start building pylons in their base before you even have a forge finished.

    no it doesn't, it's good training for noobs :)
    then go to BGH
    and then lost temple


    fastest teaches noobs what units to use and how to make them
    BGH teaches how to micro
    lost city teaches how to expand

    Of course if you just start out with Lost Temple you can learn all three simultaenously and save yourself a bunch of time.
