(By design this isnt an all in. Its possible to accidentally put yourself all in if you do not expand and drone behind the attack.)

Your goal is 3 gas and 2 base mineral saturation then make roaches and you move across the map when plus one missle and roach speed are about 30 seconds from finishing. If done right you should arrive right as speed and plus one are finishing. !!!! This attack is the most important part of the build. It needs to hit as fast as possible. Do not hesitate. Even if you have 4 roaches when the upgrades are close to finishing send them and rally the rest across to reinforce.!!!!

This is considered a timing attack and a very inportant concept to learn. We are timing our attack with roach speed and plus 1 to take advantage of any upgrade windows we have earned by getting them so rapidly. As you progress up the ranks timing attacks will become very vital. Always be trying to make sense of any aggression you apply by timing them with things like upgrades, specific units, and or a knowledge of opponent build order weaknesses.

Behind the attack you take a third and can choose to macro or reinforce.
