While playing around with defensive Queen Openers I wanted to switch from offense to defense. I considered Nydus and Drop Overlord play as my two options. In the end I found a nice way to put a lot of pressure on my opponent by opening with a 4 Queen Drop. Details below!
The Goal of the Build is to use 4 Queens to defend against early Ling Bane attacks while delaying the 3rd base. As soon as the 4th Queen is done the overlord speed is started and an evolution chamber built. This allows for a very quick Drop with Queens and other units!
While our Queens are being dropped we take a 3rd base and start spamming Lings off ~38 Drones (32 minerals 6 on gas). Excess Gas gets put into Carapace for Lings and a Lair afterwards. Once the Lair is done we either go the Mutalisk or Roach Route and just kill our opponent ideally.
While attacking with the queens and lings it is important to attack the opponent at multiple places at once (check VOD). We want to spead him thin and use our micro abilities to pick up and transfuse with queens in the main while we harrass him at his 3rd.
Eventually we hopefully do enough damage to him to make him crumble :) The Build Order can be found in the Analysis Part
If you are being pressured
Wall off your Natural with 2 evo's and a bane nest. Block the Passage with Queens and try to get some Banelings out. Once you have defended take a 3rd and move on as planned
