Quick question to the beta testers

Postby Bas » Mon Aug 14, 2006 5:02 pm

How easy is it to rush, and defend against it? I f***ing hate playing against idiots who can't do anything but remember a simple build order and rush the enemy.

From material that is out an about, you can only engage in combat after Defcon 4, and the nukes don't fly until Defcon 1. Thus, rushing really doesn't seem like an option :)

Well, I'm pretty sure that if you build only Zerglings and Overlords, you can reach an enemy continent before they manage to reach Defcon 1.

Yeah, but you can easily defend against that with turrets and 'bats. Throw in a few 'rines, just for good measure (in case they send a couple of hydras, too).

I've heard that near the end of the American campaign, Nixon is abducted by the Chinese, and that he becomes a commie!

If you rush all your nukes at the oppoment, you'll suffer horribly. The game is a stratagy, not a rush/clickfest :P
