Description

The Goal of this Build is to get Brood Lords out as quickly as possible. Further, the Build aims to be very economic by delaying all Gas mining early on and starting the Infestation Pit once 3 Hatch Saturation is reached.

For safety in the Early Game a 3:45 Roach Warren is built as well as Spores against potential Oracles. The Build Order shows a Game I played vs Mana where he went for Oracle / Adept pressure. The Notes in the Build Order should tell you when to build what.

General Build:

  • 17 Hatch 18 pool 17 gas
  • @100 Gas Ling Speed -> remove drones from gas
  • @2:45-3:00 take 3rd
  • @3:30 put drones back into the gas (2 Base Mineral Sat)
  • @3:45 Roach Warren + (Spores) if you feel the need
  • @100 gas Lair + Evo
  • Build Safety Roaches + Lings against pressure

  • @Lair get Roach Speed
  • @3 Base Saturation (66 Workers) get a Infestation pit
  • @Infestation Pit --> Hive + Spire
  • @Hive Greater Spire

That's it mostly.

Analysis

The Early Ling Speed allows for Counter Drops, Map Presence and the shutdown of early Adepts.

The 3:45 Roach Warren allows the defense of both 6 Adept pressure as well as Archon Drop and Adept Drop.

+1 Missile in the Mid Game strengthens Roaches and Hydras

+1 Melee in the Late Game increases the Damage of Lings & Brood Lords

Roach Ravager Late Game are used to shut down Zealots / Archons / Immortals.

Brood Lords late game will get the Protoss to respond with Carriers / Tempests usually. Hydralisks and Corruptors are used to deal with these.
