Vs Oracle Branch

  • Scouted by seeing SG + 2 extra gates around 3:20.
  • 3:45 - spore at each base, heavy drones + extra overlords (so you can build lings reactively if you see adepts move out)
  • Poke with lings to check if lots of adepts building
  • 5:00 bane nest or roach warren

Vs Glaive adepts/Archon Drop

  • Scouted by seeing Early twilight Council
  • 3:45 Roach warren + Lair + 2nd gas
  • 10+ roaches and
  • 4:30 spore in each base if you think it could be dt/archon drop

Interestingly Namshar often doesn’t even attempt to overlord scout - maybe knowing that Showtime often gets a stalker to deny it - and decides to play super middle of the road, safe vs everything. If you can’t scout or want to try this super generic style.

  • 3:50/50 supply 3x spores + Roach Warren
    • Bonus points for starting only the one in the most exposed base on 3:50 and delaying the others another 10-15 seconds as the oracle will take longer to reach them
  • @RW(56 supply) - 8 roaches
    • And some speedlings if its a fast adept pressure
    • Some extra queens if it’s archon pressure
    • Delay roaches until about 5:15 if you spot a stargate opening
  • 5:00/80 supply - 2xgas
  • From here transition as you like based on your style

Analysis

Notes:

  • You want to scale back your ingame timer benchmarks based on your league as you won’t hit everything as well as Namshar. Or simply use the supply count as that ensures you have everything else you need before doing each step.
  • I still think scouting and having a tailored response for each situation and understanding what corners you can cut is going to help you learn to understand ZvP the best
  • This is just great for when you find yourself messing up your scouting or the protoss being very determined to hide what they’re up to

Don't you need an overlord between 20 and 30?
