Hey everyone. I recently switched to zerg and am having a tough time with them. I'm silver now but I used to be platinum with protoss. With protoss I always though the toughest matchup was against zerg. Now that I play zerg, I usually feel like I have to use massive amounts of scouts and contantly harass to beat people... It's really hard.

Any general advice from seasoned zerg players?

Most people find Zerg hard to play if you've been maining the other two. I've been a Zerg player since BW came out and I find it hard to switch to other races, actually. Just keep playing and you'll get a better hang of them.

Well I can still defeat most gold league players, but usually it's just barely. In other words, I don't destroy my opponents anymore like I did with Protoss.

With Zerg you have to focus on getting ahead in economy AND unit count. The players that beat me always are one base ahead and have very good queen macro, whereas the ones I beat have terrible macro. You'll always have trouble against consistent spenders while playing Zerg.

If you don't know your enemy's army positioning, focus on creep spreading and using all watch towers and maintaining them. As Zerg, with all those overlords and cheap speedlings, you have no excuse to be in the dark.

Just do what I do and use speedlings. I am horrible with OL placement so I just keep a speedling near where his base is and suicide it occasinoally. If I see there isn't much of an army there then I would try and sacrifice an overlord just to see if I can catch a glimpse of anything (this is mostly for ZvP as ZvT I always get mutas and that tells me everything and roach/infestor is just OP in ZvZ).

I also recently started messing around with Zerg in team games & such. Not really accustomed to the zerg mindset & larva management. For instance, if you mass cheap units like zerglings you need to add on a macro hatch because those kinds of units waste lots of larvae, unlike ultralisks or something. Things like that.

If you're having trouble against Protoss, do a 6 pool rush to cripple their economy while redroning your econ back to normal within minutes.

I have reason to believe protoss and zerg are incomplete race. The infestor shouldn't be nerfed, it should be made into two units. Protoss needs a better way to harass, it doesn’t have anything right now. Plus protoss air units, except for voids rays, kinda suck. Does anyone bother to make carriers or mothership anymore?
