Starcraft 2 - SCV rush for the win!

This was during the Stacraft 2 Beta, I noticed that SCV's had 60 health in comparison to the other races workers which had only 40, and figured this might work on a short map. It really did not work well at all, this was probably the 5th or 6th game I tried to just rush all of my starting units (all of the rest ended in horrible horrible failures :P ). I decided I would try to confuse him by asking him to go afk, and to my amazement it all came together with a little bit of luck for an epic finish!


I don't know if this really had any direct impact, but Blizzard actually patched the game soon after and reduced SCV health to 45 instead of 60.

The all in rush right from the begining even with the 60 health was/is really easy to beat for any player of any skill level, and there really no reason it should ever work, and actuallly if you watch carefully in the video the reason this guy lost was he freaked out and tried to do too much with his probes (moving them away form the action, losing DPS time, and clumping them inside his mineral line) instead of just getting them out into the open and fighting with an attack move.

This is my first post dedicated to Stacraft 2, a game that I am actually pretty good at, I am in Diamond league in all the available solo match-ups (1v1 2v2 3v3 4v4), and although I have not really been playing much recently you should expect to see more about Stacraft here in the future, but I'll wait to make sure whatever I post is at least as entertaining as this!

I'll start with a thought I had this morning inspired from a dream I had last night where I ate too much candy and one of my teeth fell out (when my head left the pillow this morning I ran my tongue along the edges of my teeth... just to be sure).

When you get to feeling a little down just think about how many times in the future you're going to have the opportunity to munch on some delicious candy, and if that doesn't at least make you feel a little bit better then frankly you don't appreciate candy enough.
