Serral’s Zerg vs Terran

This strategy is great specifically when your Terran opponent is going for a 1-1-1 based opener and transitions towards Biological based armies in the mid-game. This is the current most common strategy, but obviously the game always changes continously.

  • 17 Pool
  • 17 Hatchery
  • 17 Gas
    -> 6 Lings (Send for Harass)
    -> Queen

Add on more Queens

@100 Gas:

  • Ling Speed
  • Drones out of Gas

3rd around ~3:10 – Basically as soon as you can, after spending all Larvae and having Minerals.

  • +2 Gas at 3rd saturation
  • + Evo Chambers (5:30) x2

Hydra Speed upgrade first, then Hydra Ranged

Don’t produce Hydras until Speed is done.
