It is that time of the year where I present my new 65%+ Winrate ZvT Build. Thanks to the new Cyclone and Nydus changes the 3 Roach Opener is stronger than it has ever been.
Who am I
At the Time of writing this I am a around 6100 MMR Grandmaster Zerg on the EU Server. I play almost only 2 Base Macro Openers (4:30 3rd or later). The focus of my play lies on quick Tech to take control of the game early.
Goal of the Build
The 3 Roach Openers aims to take control from the start without ever giving your Opponent a chance to punch you back. The early Pool allows easy defense against Reaper / Proxy Rax at the same Time as early Harassment with 2 Lings and 3 Roaches. The follow up is a quick 2 Base Spire into 3 Base Ling Bane Muta and 4 Base Hive.
General Build Order
This will be a general overview. For detailed Infos check Analysis / the Video.
