Description

Are you sick of chadrays bullying you? Having your 4th base sniped repeatedly? Cornering them to only have their millionaire father bail them out with recall? Well NO MORE. Here’s a simple rush that’s guaranteed to get some salty Protoss tears!

I first learnt this from Dark using it vs SKillous - it barely failed there, but I've had a sick winrate on ladder with this. LINK: https://youtu.be/Jy4LyQg4Zaw?t=1596

Analysis

Scouting = 2 lings + overlord skirts edge. If too complicated just send first overlord straight through their main base checking their 2nd pylon for tech.

Tell = SG going for a VR, though you can find some good success with this vs any SG opening

Build =

  • 3:30 put workers back on gas + Lair and 2nd gas.
  • Nonstop queen production
  • Stop droning at 2-mineral lines, 2 gases saturation.
  • Overseer + Nydus worm at same time - queue overseer to go to edge of main to spy for nydus in the main after your first one out front
  • Mass Lings and gogogo - use lings to spot for nydus - do it a bit further back where it can safely get up - then go for more aggressive 2nd nydus in the main, 3rd one up closer to enemy natural.
  • Engagement
  • Try to send lings in earlier - My opponents tend to rush their 3rd around 4:00, so I’m investing in 10-20 lings really early, even before I’m finished droning to look for a cancel and disrupt their opening.
  • Nydus pops: Spread 1-2 tumors immediately
  • Spam transfuse to save nydus worm if its low when it first pops (always make sure queens are loaded into it first so they pop first)
  • Split lings to attack multiple targets
  • Focus down shield batteries if they’re exposed
  • Manage queens as a group - don’t wander too far off creep where they can fight just 1-2 queens at a time
  • Bring the drones?
  • If their ground unit count is growing you can bring 4 drones and build spines
  • If their air unit count is growing you can bring 4 drones and build spores
  • Transition: This is meant to be a kill move BUT if drags on I often go for 2 more gases hydra den, hydra den upgrades and try to get out a lot of hydras.
  • You can drone a big round or so to do hydras off a good economy, or maybe only add 6 drones and basically be following up with a 2-base hydra all-in.
