Well,this is not really a rush,but
is a good way to attack the Zerg,yes,this strategy only works
against this race.
It consists in attacking with a group of at
least 5 Corsairs to the Overlords.Without this important
unit,the enemy will be short of supply for a while,and hence this will
cause an important strike to his economy and resources reserves because he
will be forced to restore the Overlods quickly, and in consequence denying the enemy the possibility of creating new units.
Because most of the Zerg's players don't usually build Spore Colonies at the beginning of
the game (specially if they're busy
with Lurkers) this strategy is highly effective,but once the
player realizes of your strategy he won't doubt to mutate
some Drones into Spore Colonies.
Also, it is as fact that many Zerg players (I would say most of them) don't even care too much about Overlords, and usually cluster them in one site, thus making them a perfect target for Corsairs.
Nevertheless, when enemy has some
Hydralisks -let's say plenty of them- it's much more complicated;a few
Hydras will not affect too much the attack of the
Corsairs,but if they're are too many, you may want to think twice before
Due to the Corsairs only need the Stargate to be
constructed, this strategy is very simple.Just build a Stargate
and build some Corsairs.But why Corsairs you wonder? What about Scouts? No way! Corsairs are cheaper, faster and they do splash damage.
However be aware,don't use this strategy as
the principal attack,because it will not work,don't start the
game thinking in making this rush,only make it if it's
convenient.Just remember,build the Stargate as soon as possible,build some
Corsairs and go to the enemy's base by the edges,attacking and
killing all Overlords as you can,nothing more,it's very simple.
