I've had several students complain over the last few weeks about how imba reapers are. They seem to be stuck in this situation where they're losing games to Reapers, so they start over compensating. Making spines before they need to, too many lings, et cetera. Of course, this cuts into their drone count, and while this does fairly well against actually beating Reapers, what happens if the Terran doesn't do that? Quite simply, the Zerg loses. They're sacrificing economic potential for absolute safety, which quite frankly doesn't exist. This is an attempt to explain direct damage versus indirect damage, and how to minimize both in your play.

This is a how-to guide for dealing with Reaper openings as a Zerg player. This is a technique tutorial, not a build order one -- that is to say, the lessons taught in this video will apply to almost any build order.
