For the most part, it's definitely not cost effective to attack it.

I recommend dropping with banes to kill the SCV's or sometimes you can get away with IT spams, but not always gaurenteed because repair is too good.

You necessarily don't even have to drop the banes, just run in with lings as meatshields and connect with banes, if the opportunity presents. This is usually possible when the Terran doesn't realize you broke his rocks early on maps like Antiga.

Roaches are great at pf 3rds... why well roaches are pretty fast plus they are remaxable/expendable plus due to high hp and burst they can kill a pf or any workers around it not to mention be immune to splash.

You don't make roaches if they go mech, particularly hellion-heavy mech? I've been dropping a warren in most of my TvZ games lately, as roaches can handle marines pretty well in small numbers before stim/medis come into full swing. I then drop the bane nest if I see that it'll be an MMM gayfest.

usually dont make roaches when going against a meching terran and usually relay on constant ling harass to keep from pushing but if he goes too hellion heavy i end up making roaches and losing because i didn't upgrade range attack

lots of people open roach ZvT

and not going roaches vs mech is suicide

and I can't imagine many maps where they would want to pf the third...their army supply has to be smaller since they can't replace as many scvs with mules. Most terrans inbase their third CC early and use it for mules anyways, so I guess the people you're playing aren't fully using the metagame, in a bad way.

fungal the scvs repairing and it helps a lot. the pf isnt nearly as powerful when it loses its repairbots

but i don't want to use infestors because their bad if you rely on a unit that has energy and runs out then you lose to to that constant stream of bio and medivacs so infestors the right for me anymore, sorry mr wolf but thanks for your input.

who makes roaches in tvz?

I've begun trying Roaches in ZvT.
Their burst damage and range makes them decent at removing Tanks quickly so they don't get as many volleys.
The Terran also has to decide to use the Tanks to defend themselves, or focus down the Banelings to protect their Marines. If they choose to focus more on spreading Marines, Roaches are more effective against spread Marines than extra Banelings are.
They have better survivability than Zerglings/Banelings, and contribute to killing buildings in a way extra Zerglings or Banelings can't.

Though you certainly have to take care not to have too many Roaches instead of ling/bling.
You can smash Planetaries if their army isn't there, though drops are probably a better option unless you've got a rather nice lead...

but i don't want to use infestors because their bad if you rely no a unit that has energy and runs out then you lose to to that constant stream of bio and medivacs

The real problem I find is, you can't let medivacs escape, it's very bad for you.
But you don't want to waste too much energy on them either.

I usually morph blings and blow it up. This is probably very cost ineffective but it works ; )

ok enough with the trolling here, and if you're really QQing then just drop it, it's not going to make you a better player, fungaling scvs at pfs is something you're gonna have to do.

Yeah depends on your strat, but you can either attack his nat if you have an advantage or baneling the sh!t out of his PF. This is really the only way to kill a planetary if you're going muta/ling/bling. Otherwise I think IT's with fungal can do it all right with infestors.
