Notes[edit]

  • Skip the first Ghost for Personal Cloaking if going for an EMP Round-push to leave the opposing player helpless against Cloaked units for a time.
  • The timing for an early push is have at least two Ghosts by the time you have harvested 300 gas, you should push out at this point; if they have not wall-ed off.
