He's a Zerg Player lol. Lurker Drops, Ling Elevator, mass Mutas.
To be honest?
Everything.

Mass Queen
Ling Bane (+ Hydra)
Roach Hydra
Muta Ling
Hydra Lurker (+ Overseer ofc)
Lurker Broodlord Corruptor

I mean, after reaching Dia, I lost 300 MMR off PvZ alone. Whatever I try simply dies, and I'm afraid of expanding as mass Lings can come whenever and ravage everything before I manage to stop them. And in the Zerg base mass Queens prevent any kind of harass.

I need to spend my bonus pool on NA acc where I offrace with Zerg...

Our Immortal stalker build isn't sufficient in countering roach/ravenger?

I hate this the worst... Observers seem to insta-die to Hydras, then its meat grinder city.

Opening Oracle every game would make for a much better spotter but I am still too crap to keep it alive lol.

The army seems to always get on top of them + The army has a lot of HP
zerg is way to broken- and if u cant win as a zerg- u just a retard
Honestly I only win vs zerg if they don't know how to macro. Otherwise they just have too much !@#$ because their units are so cheap.
Basically to have a chance in a macro game against a good zerg player you have to harass efficiently early game with adepts or oracle/pheonix, while also defending the wall and natural from ling run-bys. Otherwise you just get overrun, regardless of his unit composition. (well.. I guess if he build mass swarm hosts you might win)

I admit I'm not good at harassing (it takes a lot of micro). And sometimes have trouble defending from ling run-bys. Therefore I only win against poor macro players.
Hidras, ravager, Corruptor-Viper, Lurker. That !@#$ it's imposible for me to deal with.
mass ling floods into r/r , muta, hydra lurker. Too many options and you cant defend against all of them its either Russian roulette or get lucky enough to scout it without the sniper queens getting rid of your scouts
What I hate the most is I can't win vs. zerg.
