Hey whats up. As you may know, Zerg Roach Rushing is very popular in the Starcraft 2 beta because Roaches are so strong with their high damage attacks and their ability to regenerate hit-points quickly, not to mention that Zerg can quickly spawn a lot of them early due to the Queens ability to make a lot of extra larva in the early game. As this video shows, for Protoss to effectively counter a Roach Rush they should wall the choke-point entrance of their base with Pylons, a Gateway, and Cannons while getting a couple zealots to block the small gap in the wall, and Immortals to stand behind them and shoot over them. Immortals are an effective counter to Roaches. For Terran to counter a Roach Rush, they should wall their entrance with a Barracks, Bunker, and Depo, while building Marines and Marauders. Watch out for Roach Rushes, don’t let them get you. And if you are a Zerg player and you try to Roach Rush someone and they put up a strong wall, don’t try to break it, just keep building your army and don’t let your opponent expand.
