Analysis

  • It’s quite dangerous to open this style (no roach warren) vs any twilight or robo opening - best in the SG opening meta
  • A lot of the timings above are a little rough and somewhat flexible and should be adjusted to your level and scouting - make sure you’re always prioritising droning as much as possible and delay timings a good 20-30s if you’re ~platinum league
  • Reaction to 2-star phoenix involves many spores at all exposed bases and a heavy response of OVERLORDS and drones
  • spores/queens defend 2-star phoenix - hydras are too slow and vulnerable in small numbers
  • It’s more important to mass drones to compensate for the big damage you will take - even if they pick up few drones you will lose many overlords and have to make many spores which is a big investment
  • Endgame you want to adjust your broodlord count to the size of their ground army. A massive ground army = go up to 20 broodlords. A mostly air army means maybe as few as 6-8 broodlords just for clearing High Templar
  • Infestors are Insanely good the longer the game goes
  • I should have moved spines to secure the top middle of the map and would have had the whole top/right corner to myself and won by a much larger margin.
