Whats with the wings on the lings?

Wings on lings brings painful things while keepin it blings.
That way slow moving thors know exactly when they're #!#%ed.
I personally like the wings with the speed upgrade. Makes the Zergling look less boring.
I love seeing upgrades that change things visually. The wings are especially cool for the zerglings, since it stresses their whole evolution theme.

God help us in Starcraft 3 when zerglings can fly...

Actually zerglings will be the new scourge when they morph into flying banelings.
lings with wings = speedlings
they look like big crickets
I think they're adorable.
They're upgrade consists of Zerglings lapping up Redbull.
Lings with wings are bound to perform extraordinary things.
Not to be a science geek or anything, but wings on a creature wouldnt make it run faster. That only applies to aerodynamics (things that fly in the air without surface friction). Having wings on zerglings cannot possibly make their legs muscle stronger or move faster. A realistic aesthetic for speedlings would be like beefier legs or longer legs. Just my two cents.
The wings on lings will make you all kings?

What about leaping through the air over small bounds and using their wings then, like chickens flying over a short distance

Little known fact: The green liquid in the Spawning Pool is actually Redbull.
Redbull gives you WINNNGGSS!

This is exactly right, the wings are about the extra oomph when they bound.
It's kind of like adding other speed enhancing things to something, like flame decals or speed holes!

I don't think zerglings like fire or holes in them, so they opted for spoilers for their upgrade :)
Someone pointed out during beta that if you're looking at a bunch of zerglings at the moment the Metabolic Boost upgrade finishes, the wings will sprout and some of them will momentarily jump as though attempting, and failing, to fly.
