I’ve seen it work several times in middle leagues such as Platinum, but just wondering if it ever works in Masters or GM?
Like if you hide your Fusion Core and proxy the Star Port and also get an armory with fast armor upgrades, you can kill like 20 or even 30 marines and SCVS of an enemy Terran before they get enough Vikings to engage the Battlecruisder, and if you run away in time, you can repair it and use Yamato to kill the other player’s bunkers, because they will try bunkering their marines to prevent the regular weapon of the Battlecruiser from killing all their marines.
Anyway, I’ve seen this strategy work in Gold and even Platinum league before, so I’m just wondering if it ever workds for Diamond, Masters, or GM.
Same goes for Proxy Carrier, I’ve seen that work in Gold and Platinum league. It wouldn’t work on me, because I already assume some cheese is coming every game anyway.
I almost never get beaten by cheese. 9 times out of 10 when I lose it’s because I got out macroed 2 to 1, because I have low APM and it gets even lower since I got sick, but anyway that’s another discussion.
Thanks ahead of time.
Also, I’ve watched a couple hundred each of Avillo and ProTech’s games, and something I’ve noticed about both of those players is neither of them ever cheeses. Do they just not need cheese to keep their ranking, or do they just not think like that? HTOMario never cheesed either, and he had a 90-something percent win percentage against Zerg, and around an 80-something percent win percentage against Protoss. Mario would have been pro, but his TvT was actually his weakest matchup, and again he never cheesed. I actually know what Mario was doing wrong in Terran mirror: He was making too many Orbital Commands too early, and also trying to skip straight to mech, you can’t do that in Terran mirror, you need some Marines and Marauders early on, even if you are “meching”, because your opponent might be doing a bio all-in.
I think that’s a bad idea, never cheesing. You need to cheese once in a while, even if you think your macro and strategies ae “near perfect” because you need to keep your opponents guessing about what you are going to do. Even a “near perfect” strategy can be beaten if your opponent knows what you are doing every game. So that’s the point in Cheese, you need to keep your opponent guessing.
