A Hellion of a Harass
Choked Up is the fifth episode in the first season of StarCrafts.
Bob, as a guard on the entrance to a protoss base, salutes two stalkers striding outside for an errand. A zergling attempts to enter the base through a narrow chokepoint. However, Bob blocks it. The zergling begins circling around the bottom of the ramp. Bob walks down to investigate. He falls for the distraction as two other zerglings sneak into the base. While Bob turns to look, the first one gets in as well. The zerglings scare the probes away from the minerals. One of them grabs a probe like a dog, and runs away when Bob attacks. The zergling attempts to morph into a baneling, but its cocoon is punted off a cliff by Bob. However, he doesn't realize that another hidden zergling is also mutating. The second baneling emerges from the cocoon and it destroys the probes, much to Ragelot's astonishment.
The stalkers return to the base but are shocked to see a miserable Bob standing in the middle of probe debris and baneling acid. One of the stalkers' veil falls off.
- This is the first of several episodes where a unit is killed by falling off a cliff.
- Unit quotations from StarCraft II used:
- Stalker: "The Void hungers!"
- Zealot: "Do NOT Make me-" (completed quote is "Do NOT make me count to Zmidlarj!"
In-game References Edit
- Protoss players set a few zealots at the entrance to the base and hold position, not allowing any enemies to enter.
- It is a much used tactic to send your units straight to the workers first before attacking the other buildings, which is a part of harassment tactic.
