Roach opening

Lets start with the Zerg !

This is my preferred build order, you can contain your 
opponent very fast and harass him quite good.
  • 10 Overlord
  • 13 Spawning pool
  • 15 Extractor
  • 15 Overlord
  • Zergling
  • Queen
  • 2x Drone

(now its very important that you kill with your ling the enemy scouts,
so that they are unprepared against you roaches)

  • Roach warren
  • Drone
  • Overlord
  • Drone
  • 5-6x Roaches  ->   attack with your Roaches
  • Overlord
  • Speedling upgrade


  1. It depends on the match up if I want to open with roaches or not. I usually just 14 hatch / 13 pool / 14 gas. Once again depending on which race I'm up against of course.

  2. If you play against zerg and your opponent may start a 6 pool rush you should immediantly change your strategy and so on.. but all in all, the roach opening is an allrounder start in the early game.
