      Also, Huk has been aware that he was susceptible to cheese. He said in some cast that in one tournament he never got a gate before 14-15 and was surprised no one hit him early on.
      Yea a lot of the pro builds are fairly susceptible to cheese at the moment I believe, Nearly all zergs 14 pool or 15 FE or some variation, which is leaving you open to early pressure for a while, while terran and toss are a bit better off with the walls they make there is still a window cheese has to play in >.<

      I think there will always be macro style people like this but I think, especially from what ive seen at dreamhack is people going for more aggressive builds now, while those koreans are still macroing? Anyways thats just what ive seen happening thus far

      macro games are way more entertaining to watch than cheese. If a macro player survives early cheese/ some 1base play, they win. its the most sensible but hardest way to play imo. People are aggressive now but i bet that after a few more balance changes we'll see alot more games that are actually worth watching

      of course cheese has to be strong! it's an ALL IN, it has to be strong otherwise nobody would do it. If the cheese does not work, the cheeser will almost always lose the game.

      ALL IN plays are strong unless the opponent sees it coming. Basically you're depending on your opponent to mess up, which is why alot of people think ALL IN plays are bad. BUT! there is nothing wrong with cheesing in a tournament if you choose to do so because it leaves your opponent thinking that you're capable of ANYTHING.

      Alot of people do all ins such as 6 pool with drones sent, but you see it less and less because they just don't work anymore at least in the GSL.
