Mothership Rush All In
HuK used this build first against Pinder, then against Drewbie in the finals of the Gosucoaching weekly tournament. Huk used it against SeleCT at MLG D.C.,but didn't turn out well. During the group stages of DreamHack SteelSeries LAN-tournament, at DreamHack Winter 2010, he once again employed this technique against Tarson and won the game.
Complete and utter surprise of the opponent during a huge, detection-necessary, micro-heavy rush.
Basic Build Order
See SC2planner build order (Mothership Rush All In)
Because detection and anti-air makes the Mothership weaker, you probably want to hide your Stargate and definitely the Fleet Beacon (which broadcasts your intent).
This build gets better the later your opponent has detection and AA, but is very weak to a rush.
- Long or impeded rush distance
- Short flight distance
- The element of surprise
- Example: Desert Oasis, Scrap Station, Novice Maps
- Short rush distance
- Long flight distance
- Example: Steppes of War
