Day[9] Daily #656 - Scarlett's No Roach ZvP

Description

Although Scarlett BARELY fell short at the BattleGrounds SemiFInal vs sOs, she brought to the table an innovative set of build orders that relies on NO ROACHES!  Ling/Hydra becomes the mid-game composition of choice for Scarlett as she brutalizes virtually all compositions with the joys of transfuse and tech switches.  In this daily we'll see

  • The typical ways that Zergies be playing ZvP and why (mainly roach/hydra defensive midgame OR aggro ling/muta play)
  • The thought process behind the usual Zerg opening (lings + roaches + spines for defense)
  • How Scarlett turns usual Zerg logic on its head by avoiding roaches!
  • When and how Scarlett decides to build dem queens
  • How the choice of ling/hydra heavy play reshapes Scarlett's mid-game decisions.

These replays can be located at the Red Bull BattleGrounds website!
