Today I'll be going over a zerg strategy for a really quick roach push which I find to work exceedingly well in multiplayer games, especially 3v3. For this strategy to work, you need to stay very on top of your macro.
Ordinarily with a zerg strategy with a macro base, you might do a 13 or 14 pool to 15 hatch, but with quick roach, you will skip the second hatchery altogether, at least until later on when your economy can support it. With this strategy you want to make sure that you start off mining and making drones until you hit 9 food. Once you hit 9 food, make an overlord, do not wait until 10 as this will hurt your economy just a bit. Keep training drones until you hit 14 food and then make a spawning pool. When it's about halfway done, make an extractor and as soon as that finishes throw 3 drones on it to start mining gas. All the while, keep making drones
By time your pool finishes you should have an excess of around 300 minerals. Normally this would go to an early expo for a macro based game, but you're going for a quick roach. So with those 300 minerals, make a queen and a roach warren immediately. You should keep making drones and overlords when you're about 2 away from your population cap. Once your queen finishes, spawn larvae right away and you might want to start making roaches. But for sure once those larvae pop, throw out roaches immediately. Roaches cost 2 food, so they will eat up your population very quickly. When possible make excess overlords which are also good for scouting and creep dropping.
When you have a decent amount go out for a push, or pool with your allies and go for a push. Don't forget to keep making roaches in the process, and eventually get a lair. Once the lair finishes, make sure you upgrade roach speed, it is ESSENTIAL. Then later on tech to hydras for a roach/hydra army which is very effective against pretty much anything.
I do not recommend this for single player games because it leaves you open for a wide attack, as quick tech does for any race, but you do not have a wall to protect you since you are zerg. IF you do this in single player, you should use a combination of quick tech and early speedlings to fend off any sort of early attack. Video is officially up, stay tuned and good luck!
