I might be adapting and improving this build order as needed while playing this on the ladder.


Adaptation of Lambo's 9 Roach Pressure.

While originally designed against Terran, it might be used against other match ups as well.

Upon reaching the opponents base with the 9 roaches, we should have reached 2 base saturation with a third base ready to saturate, depending on which transition (if any) is required.

  • No need to take drones off gas

  • Lings and Queen from main should deny scouting with Reaper on cliff

  • Both queens inject upon finishing, instead of having one Queen on creep spread duty.

  • First single Roach is built on main, and a drone on natural

  • First Roach turns into Ravager on high ground to avoid being spotted too early

Looks the same as Lambo 9 roachs pressure, what is the difference here ?
