Alientcp (thats me) (z) vs ScaryRedneck (z)

My sister called me after i found a match, so i had to finish quick.

The game was in the 1v1 platinum league, when most zerg players will do a 13-15 pool, so it works well against them, also it prepares you in case they want to rush you too. Not recommended vs terran, they will be walled by the time you arrive.

In the vid i incorrectly say "attack with 6 lings and 7 workers", when it should be 9 workers.

I did not copied this strategy. It born When i tried to beat an insane computer in less than 5 minutes (challenge in game), but due to my lack of experience in ladder in sc1 and 2, i wouldnt be surprised that this was used before. ( i played mostly ZCNR15-20 mins and UMS in sc1)

Note. for this to work, you should know where your opponent is without scouting, you dont have any spare workers.

Create 2 workers 8/10
Make the pool 7/10
2 more workers 9/10
just before the pool finish, 2 workers become geysers 7/10
Spawn 6 lings and cancel the geysers 12/10

attack with the workers a few seconds before the lings finish They are the sponge of the army.

Create 1 overlord and when it finish, build 2 more lings with the rally point to your opponent base. Unless you want to handle manually. Up to you.

This was recorded with fraps 2.9.4. Compressed with a generic program use your favorite one.

Sorry for quality, i will try to improve it in the next videos (if any)

No voice commentary since im a non native speaker with an ugly accent.

Have fun and thanks for watching.
