You can use this in ZvP as well. The roaches/ravagers arrive at enemy natural by ~3:30 depending on the map.
This is different from those builds because it starts with hatch first and has more roach/ravagers at the cost of less zerglings and arriving ~15s later than Lambo's build.
Disclosure: I'm diamond, but I started using this build and climbed a bunch of mmr. I was able to win macro follow-up matches that didn't just end when the roaches arrived.
|16||1:15|| ||Put 3 drones on gas when extractor finishes|
|20||1:51|| ||Stop droning at 20 supply until you've built your roaches|
|20||2:00|| ||Put it behind your main mineral line to hide|
|21||2:04|| ||Pool your larva so you have 6 (3 from each hatchery) when your roach warren finishes|
|24||2:41|| ||Send all your roaches to outside enemy natural as soon as they spawn, morph front-most 2 roaches into ravager, as gas comes|
|36||2:54|| ||Resume droning heavily (6 drones before morphing 2nd ravager)|
When your roaches arrive, the goal is to break the wall and kill workers (even if they have liberator/banshee/void-ray).
If you can't break the wall, you can try to destroy production buildings and/or contain them out of their natural as you macro up.
You can follow up pretty normally after this opener: after you send your roaches across the map, drone up heavily and get 3rd, banelings, lair->hydras/mutas, 2-4 gasses, upgrades, etc.
