Today I have a new strategy for you guys! This strategy is for zerg and is called baneling carpet bombing. I didn't make up this strategy, but I do use it sometimes and it is very effective something worth noting. In order to do this, you need to have overlord movement speed as well as transport researched. It works extremely well against large amounts of infantry such as hydras, zerglings, marines, and marauders. It works, but not as well against roaches, stalkers and zealots.
To carry out this strategy, you must create a decent sized force to attack or muster up all you can to combat the enemy. Then make a bunch of banelings, load them into your overlords, and start moving out. Use your force to counter the enemy directly while your overlords fly over. As they are flying over hit the drop all key ("D" by default) and click the overlord you want to drop the "bombs". Repeat for each overlord. This causes them to drop the banelings one at a time in a devastating carpet bomb maneuver. It can be seen above. Enjoy. :)
