Did you run into another Protoss who opens with a Pylon at your natural into mass Cannon / Shield Battery / Stalker / Immortal? Well I have the answer to your troubles! Enjoy the defensive 1 Base approach that will show your Opponent the Strength of Roaches, Swarmhosts and Nydus Worms.
The Goals of the Build are the following:
For a general BO Check Analysis / VOD
I stream regularly at https://www.twitch.tv/railgan :)
How do I notice I am being Cannon Rushed?
Send the first Overlord cross map to his Natural and keep the 2nd Overlord at home. If he didn't expand by the time your Overlord arrives you are probably being cannon rushed. Otherwise if you see Pylons near your Base you are probably being Cannoned as well.
How should I react?
Dont pull Drones. It usually doesn't work against the modern cannon rushes. Unless you can block the cannons from going down to begin with.
If it is at your Natural cancel your expansion as late as possible or dont build it at all.
If it is in your Main you need to rush Roaches and Spines ASAP. You can only hold the Ramp with this build not your Main Base.
The Roach / Swarmhost Defense
I get both gasses as soon as possible, start 1 queen 1 roach warren and 1 spine near the ramp to secure it. I then get the Lair and 1 Roach that I morph into a defensive Ravager.
While getting the Lair I constantly maintain saturation and get 2-3 Spine Crawlers total to secure the Ramp.
After the Lair is done immediately start your Nydus Network and infestation pit. Then place one Overlord near his Mainbase to begin the Nydus Push. Constantly build Queens to spread Creep / defend against Warp Prisms, get at least 4-6 Roaches to attack his Main Base, get one Overseer to deal with DTs and Observers in your Main.
As soon as the Nydus Network is done Nydus his Main. If he recalls his units rush down the ramp with your Spine Crawlers. Start producing mass Swarmhost.
Take your Natural if possible and use Changelings to scout for any hidden Bases. If you find any Nydus near them and kill them with your Swarmhosts.
My Opponent went for X
Against Stargate: Just use Queens into Infestors
Against DTs: Your Overseer, Roaches and Spines will keep you save.
Against Mass Stalker: Build some defensive Ravagers
Against Robo: Queens help a lot vs Warp Prisms and Immortals
