ZvX All purpose, Mass Extractors ^_^

Hi fellow creep-spreaders.
I've been using this build since beta, and I'm in love with it.
I suppose it's more like an opener than a build. But it works in all matchups, and you have a good chance of surviving everything. The purpose of it is to delay your overlords a little bit, so you can use the supply your first hatch generates. This enables you to get your queens almost 10 seconds earlier. Hereby you get an edge against early cheeses and rushes, and the quicker injects and creep tumors are very neat too.

To summerize, I think you loose around 100 Minerals. But get your queens out 10 seconds earlier.

I don't think this is a lot better than other starting Build Orders for Zerg. But everything fits together perfectly, and it can definitely survive those early cheeses that the normal Hatch first can't.

Details vs specific strategies:

Vs Zerg:
Opponent 12 pools + spines --> cancel one queen and build pure lings, attack with everything. NO SPINES!
Opponent one base aggression --> Build Baneling nest before speed, lots of lings! maybe a spine.
Opponent two base mass ling bane --> Speed then baneling nest next, and use your superior economy to win.
Opponent hatch first + early 3rd--> Speed then baneling nest next, You need to be aggressive, while taking your own 3rd.

Vs Toss:
Opponent Cannon rushes --> Wing it dude! Spines, Roaches and prayers.

Vs Terran:
3 rax --> creep tumer from queens. 1spine + lings lings lings.
Reapers --> No problem man, queens spawn in time to defend. Try to sneak a 3rd down.


1. The first drone you make will do the first extractor trick.
Will fill this out later if people likes the the build ^_^
