Zerg Tips!

Helpful tips for you Zerg players, or useful hints against zerg!

Today i will be featuring the Overlord. It is a vital unit as a zerg, as not only does it produce population but it can boost your forces' speed, transport units, scout, protect your units, and even be a major annoyance to your opponent/s.


1: Using drop creep ability on an overlord can help cockblock your opponent's expansion. If they start firing at it, run it away (assuming you have speed) and when they're not looking, move it back, drop a slime of creep and run. repeat until your opponent rages.


2: Using Overlords: Overlords are useful in battle and not. They have many purposes... with their speed ability, they could essentially protect your army from "microing," runthroughs in their base to scout, and can provide creep highways for your units.

(( my favorite use for them: When you're facing a terran, they usually scan you throughout the match. Use your creep poop on the side of your base to build a "hidden" spire, infestor pit, ultralisk cavern, etc! ;] ))
