    Name some.

    Peons rushes are stupid, i thought that when Ben was rushing me with Peons, i was like, 'LOL, newbbbbbbbb', then i realised my Gateway was getting fluxed :(

    I prolly would've lost my Gateway if he didn't stop.

    A stupid strategy thats...effective. Massing cannons is effective 9/10 of the time. only 3 things effectively DESTROY cannon rushing.

    1) Guards
    2) Tanks
    3) Defilers plague/swarm + lings.


    Massing Overlords...like 300 overlords cover your enemies base. Blinds there vision and is really annoying. takes awhile to kill them and can be a good distraction...even a few filled with lurkers...or even crackheads...

    Pity this thread if it gets more than like 10 posts...theres only so much you can do without ALOT of time on your hands.

    Bunker 'jumping.' :) Building a bunker, then building another one in front of it but within the attacking range of it, till you reach your enemies base, and just make tons of bunkers with marines.

    Pretty close to Wang Zorros but gradually get there instead of building in front of it.

    mass early game vultures with spidy mines.. You run to their minerals and lay the mines :loopy .
    It is a fun strategy many overlook... they charge your units like 4-7 vultures and they end up killing their miners HAHA!

    something i like is this- being toss and getting a zeal as quick as you can and scout and when u find the enemy base have the zeal run all around the enemy base and most likely his workers will follow you and prevent him from mining even if all u are doing is moving the zealot around and round. then when he gets like 100 away from finishing a barracks/egg hatching, run the 1 zeal out of his base, and then let 3 dragoons take his place. i chose toss as they have the strongest single beginning unit.

    If you are playing in a shared map base at the end of the map dont ally victory and just kill them all if your in a corner spot. :) Its evil but its cool when you got jackasses for partners.

    I think the stupidest ploy I have ever used, was I took and made about 2 drones and rushed with the total 6 them. I was suprised to see that it worked, all I had to do was focus 2 per 1 enemies drone, and after they were dead, I sicked my drones on the base, and while they tried to build another drone, I had another one coming up. The only downside is that you have to have at least one drone mining, otherwise you lose minerals, and you won't be able to build if they kill you...

    Nor do they attack any floating unit, such as Archons, Dark Archons and Vultures/

    Oh I know this other stupid strategy, Renzokuken usually does it, it's called picking Protoss. It's gay and it usually works. RAWR
