View Full Version : Dealing with early FC rush? (1v1)
26th Sep 04, 7:07 PM
Whats the best way to combat an early FC rush either on his own or backed up with 1-2 sm squads?
I find that im often attacked at base by a solo FC before ive had time to get my shrine set up.

I don't know what build order you are using but if you use 2 bonesingers on your aspect portal, then generator, then shrine, you can have a farseer and a couple guardian squads waiting for the FC. Just mindwar him and tie him in combat with the FS while your guardians mow him down and you wait for your Seer Council to come out, if your FS is about to die throw on FoF and run back till the SC gets there

Mindwar doesnt seem to have much of an effect, only takes about 10% off a FC which isnt enough to keep my FS from dying when they meet in HH. What tends to happen is i get rushed as my guardians are away from base and dont return quick enough to give enough support. Also i tend to send one of my guardian squads deep into their half to slow their capture so my defense is quite thin early.
capture nearest 2 sp
aspect done, get FS
3 bones build gen
sps done, 2 bones used to build lps, 1 gets the shrine
send one guardian on offense, slow their capure
send other guardian to next point, later backed up with FS
shrine done, get 2 warlocks, get entangle
Where does the council fit in? I dont build them till after i have 2 banshees. Too be honest im not sure what their best used for, they seem to die fast with their default 3 man squad

Well this might not be early enough , but I research entangle first at Soul Shrine.In retail I have seen very few FC hit me before i have it researched. So usually i just entangle , hit him with Mind War , pyschic storm or whatever the other ability is , and let the guardians use ranged attacks on him.
