h-blockx 2

21 July 1999: tactic from MacMark
Maybe You've read about h-blockx. This tactic is very similar. Often You have no units to prevent Your enemy from scouting Your base. Really? No quite.

I use my well armored Harvesters to block the entrance if there're no other units available. Many APCs trying to engineer me died in front of my Harvesters because my infantry was protected. Usually the APC would squish my infantry. But as long as it stands in front of my Harvesters the Rocket Soldiers and other guys can fire their ammunition.

The advantage is that Your enemy doesn't expect You to use Your Harvesters as mobile walls. I wish I could have seen their faces ;-) Usually they rely on their APC/Engineer rush. After that fails they lose the game.
