Description

You might be wondering: what type of all-in starts with economic cheese? The type that wants to have a sustained attack as soon as possible, that's what.

In this build, Snute cuts corners and goes for almost pure Drones for the first 4 minutes of the game. This allows him to get up to 6 Extractors and spread Drones across 3 mineral lines before he lines up his attack. From there, he streams Roaches and Ravagers across the map to bust down walls and forcefields to force his way into the Protoss base.

Analysis

So to be fair, Snute actually ends up losing this game, though I think it was a valiant effort. There are a few interesting risks with this build.

  • this attack hits without Lair tech, so reinforcements in slow Roaches are slow
  • you don't have a great way to deal with the Mothership Core unless you bring Queens, so use your Ravager shots smartly to try to trap it.

Some of the timings/order of units are a bit off in the SALT code. Not a huge deal, just FYI.

Hmm, this is a pretty old replay, so I'm not surprised. Maybe it came from before the version switch? Sorry about that. Hopefully the VOD and build order are good enough, though!
