Not cheating, just taking a shortcut

I dont really mind the bronze badge. It feels pretty cool beating diamonds and still being a bronzie. Bronze FTW!

Once you get a surround, since, you'll have around 11-12 workers or so, you'll taken them all down causing most opponents to GG
I read on a SC2 forum that worker rush has a 50%+ win ratio in diamond/platinum. I find that hard to believe though.

I can see it working in bronze and silver. Use your workers to attack move. You should always have more workers. Only micro you have to do is pull away your injured worker. Dont overcommit.

Do what I said. There is no reason why it shouldnt work since you have more workers than him unless his micro is vastly better than yours. If he pulls his workers back, dont chase it. Just have it mine minerals again and only attack if you see his workers attacking.

I have to admit though, Ive only been worker rushed 2 or 3 times my entire time playing SC2.

I have to agree with this, although, that 50%+ win ratio is rather startling. I mean as you mentioned, bronze and silver, it might work especially if you are P since you can pull away injuried probes, regenerate shields and attack again, but, the only time I've been worker rushed, I just surrounded his SCVs and he quit right after I took them all down, lol.

Haha, I can imagine a diamond player looking at the score screen and realizing he lost to bronze, lol. Don't really see a point though.

Edit: Same against 2000+ terran.

You guys obviously havent seen CellaWerra troll the US servers.

2500 diamond worker rush when he's bored. Used to be top 50 WORLD*wide on his US account before he started taking his KR account more seriously.
