Great example of production stages. Clearly offense early, clearly gains advantage of +1 base. Uses pre-existing units to secure advantage by droning extremely hard ASAP on only 6 roaches. Then switches out into mass roach production again. Simple strategy, flawless execution.

The all-in portion is probably best viewed in video format ( available now courtesy of Polygon Gaming) for visual execution tips and tricks.
