What you just witnessed (as you might have guessed from the title) was what is called in the gaming world as a Zerg Rush, a semi-popular (or unpopular, depending on which side of it you’re on) strategy in the game PC Starcraft, a Real-Time Strategy game where you are tasked with making a base, collecting resources, building an army and destroying your opponents.

The Zerg Rush is a strategy that involves building the bare essentials of your base in the sole purpose of creating Zerglings, the cheapest offensive unit of the Zerg Race. After you have the capability to make Zerglings, you make as many of them as your resources will allow and send them to your enemy’s base in a constant wave, creating a never ending stream of units to attack your opponent before they have the time to set up a proper defense.

Some see it as a cheap strategy, some see it as an amusing way to win a fight. In any case, you can now see it set upon your favorite web browser, thanks to the good folks at Google.

GG to you too, Google.

And even Google employs an unfair strategy against your defenses, they do end the match with a fair and just GG (Good Game).

P.S. did you notice the counter on the upper right corner of the screen? Yep, this is a game, folks. Click on the Googlings (just made that up, you like?) to take down their health and defend your innocent Google search. I got a score of 60, let me know what you end up with.

Have fun!
