I know most of you hate team games , but a lot of times especially in 3v3+ if bases are not shared, it is smart to gank one of the opponents bases right off the bat. Zerg really has poor chance of living due to our inability to wall.
I was wondering if anybody knows a good opening based on spine/queen defense.
I'd like to save zerglings as an endgame mineral dump. (Usually works for my skill level)
10 pool speedling
This. I would also throw down a Spine Crawler or two if you know it's coming. Pull drones off gas as soon as you get 100 for speed. Keep producing lings/queens. The Spines won't always complete and the units won't do much if you're severely outnumbered, but they will slow the other team down enough for your teammates to either come to the rescue, or tech/counterattack.
league matters a bit, in better leagues your allys will notice you
are the target and try to get to you in time. You can help them to that
awareness by pinging the approaching army or your main to get
as zerg I fear zerg the least early on and the most later on
I use a few builds that allow for a spine in time for an 8-10p
meaning 8-12 pool openings. do i want to rush? (with 8 yea but
with 12 i want to be able to spine in time for an 8p it's a minor
econ hit for a strong strong strong anti ling rush option.
my 12 is just a delayed 14p build, i might be roaching at 14p timings
with less eco but I did that to open the option of totally defending
a ling rush.
8p is a great build for totally refuting all early cheese and you can even
pay for it if you cause damage... REALIZE that your 8p could be absolutely
shut down cold by 1 or 2 opponents..... but what if theres a 3rd who has
a sim city instead of a wall or is a zerg? then its on.
hmm, so as long as I slow my inevitable death enough for my team to counter..
Exactly. If you get 3x all-inned you'll almost never hold it without putting your team way behind. Better to delay your death, save a Drone if you can, and let your teammates get a Tech or Army advantage, then roll the enemy. If you saved a Drone, you can try to rebuild if you don't win ouright, but often 2 strong armies will take out the 3 weaker ones and win the game on a counter attack.
