We've already had this discussion but I don't think musk start puts you that far behind

If you start musks while he's up 13 and goes huss you're just pinned in your base and have useless leftover musks in fort. But yea we already discussed it

On EP maps with similar cdb age up you can probably just 4cdb 3 huss and be ahead. On any map where 3 huss can do damage (including simply when opponent ages with 13 cdbs) then it's not a cheese anymore, it's actually a legit strat so you might as well mirror it rather than counter it (you can counter it but he can do the same).

I don't think starting Inf is worse than starting huss, often on small maps I prefer to start with mosks and try to add huss later to price in the base. If he passes the age he will have his base destroyed and his economy broken and I will advance from a much more balanced age, if he goes to play in age 2 he will have far fewer mosks to defend.

How would you defend against Sioux, shipping 4 axriders and making a batch of 5? I would say, in the same manner ;) correct me if I am wrong!
