CNA_StrayDog gosh i loved his trush/foward it was a piece of shit still somehow he managed to win and make towers in the whole **** map 11. One of the best not because of skills(though he had them and was really good), but because of the material he gave us, fun recs 11.

Kmkm if u win WCG doing forwards and all the players know ur doing forwards u r the best.


+1

"If you've ever gone up against a kmkm rush, you know why it's effective. Strategic hills, controlling the game and the resources, and an offensive tower at your disposal make rushing a lucrative option. You know its kmkm, you know hes rushing, and sometimes it felt like there wasnt a solid thing you could do about it. Even iron-manning it like koven didn't necessarily work. He would choose hills, use 5 villagers forward, and if you rushed his buildings, he would stop making villagers, and he would put all of his resources into army production. After he won the fight (which was almost always), he would use hit and run tactics combined with excessive towering of key resources. Games against him were often less than 15 or 20 minutes."

I've heard L_Clan_Chris invented the pop 22 forward, or at least he was the first to use it against top experts, using it even in tournaments he won, so he deserves to be mentioned. _MyST_IORI also had a very strong pop 22 forward that made him really famous back then. Kmkm was one of the pioneers and served as model for other players, forward was called "Kmkm rush" in the first years of AoC (2001, 2002, 2003)! From 2009, jx_goodboy1, from 2011 Funito with drush+fwd. I think these five are the ones who had the strongest forwards.

Who told chris invented the pop 22 forward? Grunt used it first time vs chris on loser semi-final, WCG2001.
Also grunt used 22pop scout rush at 2001 too. 99% player used 24 or 25 pop up before.
18~22 pop strategies came up at 2001.

I've read it so many times on different places. One example is: http://aok.heavengames.com/university/s ... map/flush/ where one can read: "Chris (L_Clan_Chris) can be credited with the idea of the 22 pop Flush."

But I believe you, kkab. It's good to know!

Chris made it popular, but it was around before him. I think even I was doing it before Grunt :p

For the 1st place it's obviously (china) _MyST_IORI_. For the 2nd place there are many candidates.
