    Hawk Rush

    Basically, i find myself getting hawk rushed rather often. Whenever i face Anders, i scout the base, and if i see the usual reactors and air pad, i assume theyre building hawks. So ok i get out my wolverines/vampires (depending who I'm playing as) and kill the hawks, but then i leave myself pretty useless in terms of attacking his base. I mean vampires/wolverines are far from building killers.

     So assuming ur facing 15/20 hawks (depending on your enemies pop cap.) Whats the right balance between anti-air units and units that u can launch ur own attack with?

    Thanks

    I would just send your anti air over to their base so when they build a hawk it just dies instantly, then start making some scorpions or vultures to do the dirty work on the base.

    Re: Hawk Rush

    This is just a guess but if you're opponent is maxed out on one unit, I think having 2/3 of counter units compared to their total unit count will ensure you a victory. So if he has 15 Hawks it will take 10 Wolverines to bring them down, or 20 Hawks = 12 Wolverines. Also once fully upgraded Wolverines aren't such bad building killers because they have a ground to ground missile barrage. However if they've established anti vehicle turrets they'll get shredded. In that case use whatever open slots you have to build Cobras for a quick base take down (they're amazing against turrets and buildings) or Scorpions.

    Re: Hawk Rush

    Use the Wolverines to lock down their base, and use their volley ability to do some damage.

    Once that has been done, produce cobras, scorpions, or whatever you like to finish him off. Maybe even Marines, since they are also good against Air units, and come with a secondary ability that is moderately effective against structures

    Hawk Rush?  Isn't that an oxymoron?

     

    If this is a problem, work on upgrading and purchasing wolverines when you have a 1v1 against Anders.  Whenever you face an opponent and don't know their tactics though, you should always keep one or two wolverines with your army and have your two back turrets at your base be anti-air.

    Re: Hawk Rush

    also, i'll rephrase my initial question

    how many anti air units do i need per hawk?

    and therefore how many anti air units do i need to take on 15/20 hawks?

    4 or 5 fully upgraded wolverines can take out an entire pop-cap full of hawks.  As for covenant units, I'd guess a 1 to 3 ratio for vampires to hawks should work, and if not, you can always make more.

    Haha, yes. Rushing with tier 4 units? Not likely.

    Re: Hawk Rush

    If I play 1v1 and my opponent is Anders I will usually go with Anders and not use hawks. then what I do is upgrade my cryo bomb and build building killers, freeze the hawks take out a factory and goto town.

    Well yah, don't just spam wolverines, but it's best to ready them ASAP.
