Description

If anyone was wondering how a Zerg could get to Platinum with just one build against any race, here's your answer:

This build delivers a really strong 4 minute Roach & Speedling push, while having 2 Queens and an Expansion as your backup to quickly move on droning (if you need to), after having dealt brutal good damage to your opponent.

For me this build worked really well against any race (Diamond level). Especially in lower leagues, this should absolutely tear your opponent apart.

In any way I would really appreciate you trying the build.

Have Fun! :)

General BO:

  • 17|18|18 >> Hatchery|Pool|Extractor

  • 20 >> Overlord

  • @Pool >> 2x Queen + 4 Zerglings + 1 Drone

  • 27 >> Roach Warren

  • 26 >> Metabolic Boost (~2:20) -> Start droning

  • 30 >> Overlord

  • 32 >> Overlord

  • 33 >> Begin Roach & Zergling production -> Stop droning

  • 46 >> Overlord

  • 50 >> Overlord

  • 57 >> Overlord


  • start pushing at ~3:40

  • after that you just focus on getting Roaches and Lings, as well as your Injects and Overlords !ASAP!

Analysis

  • You can use the 4 early Zerglings for scouting, for defending or for denying the scouting of your opponent.

  • At around 3:40 you should move out with your Roaches (6).

  • Reset your rally point towards the natural of your opponent.
  • Don't forget to build enough Overlords within your attack and remember to inject your Hatcheries.
  • When playing against Protoss or Terran make sure to get at least 1 spore crawler in each mineral line to be save against early DT's or cloak Banshees.
  • With a high mineral count you want to add 2 more Queens and a 3rd Base.

Have fun destroying your league ;)

There will be an update coming soon, because I found a way this works even a bit faster.
