Description

The build is your typical ZvZ 2 Base Roach Timing with 3 Gas, +1 Missile and Roach Speed. It cuts the early Ling Speed and uses a Baneling Nest to wall off and keep safe from Ling Bane Timings. Furthermore, Queens are used to fully block off the Natural and Queens + Banes together should keep you safe.

The Build then gets a fast Lair + Evo and aims to hit as strong of a Roach Attack as possible. You are able to take a 3rd once your Roaches are out and go for a macro Transition into a +2 Timing if you so wish.

Analysis

The Banelings can be used to shut down Lings in the fight, Splash onto Roaches or even be sent to the mineral line.

2 Base Roach is generally a worse opener than 3 Hatch Openers so you will find yourself struggling a bit depending on the Rush Distance.

Transitioning away from the Roaches into droning a 3rd is a coinflip. If your opponent makes more Roaches than you, you get ahead and play with the defenders advantage into superior Upgrades. If he stops Roach production around the same time you will fall behind. If he stops earlier than you he will lose.
