I've been trying this out vs Terran and It's worked vs 4 terran in a row now.

It's worked on Meching Terran.

It's worked on MMM Terran.

It's Worked on Marine + Siege tank Terran.

I've been surprised. You can just go straight to lair and put down a Roach Warren. Then when your lair is done get a queen and burrow. With some burrow micro on the Roaches you can survive the initial push pretty easily then counter attack and win. I've dont nothing but pump Roaches and Zerglings and it's won vs 4 in a row.

Before I started doing this I'd lost to probably 15 terran players in a row

I am confused. Why rush to lair if you are only using lings and roaches? You do not need a lair for lings and roaches.

Fast lairs always seem suceptible to early rushes to me. But I guess terran don't rush that much.

Sounds cool, would like to analyze the replays to try it out if you could post some.

You do this to break a Terran wall?

A specific build order or replays would be awesome.

Because you need burrow.

Can you move burrowed roaches in under the terran wall? I assume so but haven't tried....

No. Roaches can't burrow-move under buildings...
