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! :)
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!
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).
Have fun destroying your league ;)

once you hit this build suffers from lack of larvae. like hte video, you'll floating 300ish minerals as you hit their base, and it gets worse ballooning up to 1000 minerals for lack or larvae. either needs to add 3rd during the attack, or macro hatch; too resource inefficient.

I feel like adding more lings instead of drones makes this more of an all-in build as i want it to be.. with 37-38 drones you are not completely screwed if you were not successfull with the attack.

Instead of droning, making lings is a better alternative.

I usually push at around 3:40, but you can also wait until 4:00 to gather more units (if your attack hasn't been scouted early).

How many roaches/lings do you suggest to have before pushing out?

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