  Looks promising


  Needs a lot of work







It's a defensive strategy, used as the last method if you see that the enemy is about to tear down your defenses.
Basically it involves attacking the enemy's base while he's attacking yours.Supposedly, he should be using most of his forces to attack you,so his base should be without too many defenders,but this is not always like that. You'll have to worry only about defensive buildings (Sunken Colonies,Photon Cannons, Bunkers,etc).
Your foe,seeing his base under attack will use the units he was using to attack you to defend his base at all costs,but some players prefere to continue attacking,for that reason,this strategy doesn't work always,but sometimes it'll the last resource you'll have!

Examples? All right.
Zerg players could hide (burrow) some units near one of the enemy's bases. Hence, while he's attacking, you counterattack him with these units.
In addition, air counterattacks as well as drops are valid for the three races.
