Proxy Hatchery

Hi enthusiasts!

Sorry about the lack of post yesterday, was a busy busy busy day!  Here is a cheese strategy that sometimes can work if you pull it off correctly.

What is it?
A proxy hatchery is a strategy that works best against an unsuspecting protoss.  Terrans normally will be building their front door up in a hurry, whereas a protoss generally just starts to warp then either leaves to scout or goes back to mining.  IN either case, the element of surprise is necessary for this to work.

You need to scout your opponent quickly and get a drone in their base without their knowledge.  Get your spawning pool relatively early and sacrifice getting your first queen, you'll need the minerals.  Pop up the proxy asap near the back of their mineral line and as soon as it finishes, pop out a queen.  Time is essential since a smart opponenet will either start to see creep or scout you quickly.  As soon as queen is out, get as many drones as possible to turn into spine crawlers.  Keep the queen behind the crawlers and transfuse as neccesary.

How do we win?

If you can pop out a single spine crawler, chances out you will disrupt their economy enough to cause a gg.  As a backup plan, you should get some defenses back at your main once you have a few crawlers up.  Gauge what troops you will get by what your opponent has but keep in mind you will be rather gas light from the early commitment.

Swarm on brothers!
