So i have a question about getting the lings out at 2:40, how can you get eight out when there is only two hatcheries running that each hold 3 larva without the queen?

@sirpion: Actally all the maps where the protoss is likely to take a fast expand because it is "safe" can be outplayed with a triple attack.
So i think Orbital Shipyard is quiet good too,

Thanks :D

I'm sorry i couldn't find the id of the Zerg player, but this is played on the Korean GM ladder.

To go further in the analysis, as you can see in the replay, the Zerg player is not scooting and goes for this strategy blindly, but notice that this build order is (most of the time) lethal when the protoss is going for a nexus first.
Therefore, i advise you to do this build on maps that you know your opponent will go for nexus first; such as Dusk Tower.

In this game, the Protoss went for a huge investment into technology, thinking that a wall would make him safe, but if he would have invested in a 2 Gate opener and scooted the zerglings coming, he could have countered. This build is unconventional and really hard to scoot, but the protoss should have kept his probe in the Zerg base way longer, to see the evolution chamber ! That is his main mistake

Hope it helped you !

Great find on this build order! Nice job cleaning up a lot of the timings to make it crisper, as well!

Do you happen to know who the player is in the replay? Sorry if it was mentioned in the VOD, but I don't know french =P

Also, could you provide a bit more analysis in terms of what situations this build order works well and what situations that it doesn't work so well?
