Should probably post your league, specifically what unit compositions, timings, etc you are having issues with.
Replays are a huge help.

Roaches suck. Sentries greatly cut their damage down to a pathetic amount due to the Roach's short range of 4. Also, they shoot extremely slowly with a cooldown of 2. Zealots shred Roaches when they cannot kite. Immortals hard-counter them, and Colossi deal so much splash damage against them.

Void Rays are actually really good once they're in numbers of 10+. Combined with Archons, Corruptors and Mutas are no longer a threat against Voids. Zealots also fare well with Voids in protecting them from Infestors and Hydras.

Once Carriers are in numbers of 6+, they will wreck practically anything as long as there is an anti-infestor unit like High Temps or Colossi and as long as there are Archons that can wreck Corruptors.

Carrier/archon/ht beats just about anything Zerg can do, but getting there is hard

two words: TIMING PUSH

You either do an immortal all in off 2 base or you do some sort of 3 base timing before broodlords with either 2/3 colossi or 6+ immortals.

Zerg own this matchup so hard it's not even funny.

You HAVE to immortal sentry all in, or else zerg will just outmacro you and make it impossible to take a third. If you wait too long, they will just go mutas and insta win. Zerg is the equivalent of god in this game. They can tech switch in a second and produce vastly different armies within a minute.

You have to win in the first 10 minutes or you're dead. This is the amazing game that is SC2. So broken it's not even fun anymore.

Tips - In late game, from double robo - use your minerals for Speed warp prisms and zealot, templar, DT drops and harrass the ever living hell out the zerg. kill his tech, hit his economy.

you will have a very hard time winning an army vs army straight up fight, so you have to nibble down his army and nibble down his infrastructure. He will kill prisms, always have 2 on the map and poke here and there. If you see a weakness, do a full mass warp in and exploit it. Always hit at 2 places at the same time if possible so one will get some damage done.

Maybe you should learn how to play it before declaring it broken.
