More Aggression, more Win

-Build Drones until you reach 14/14 supply

-Build an Overlord

-At ~70 minerals build an extractor to reach 13/14 supply and build an additional Drone, then cancel the extractor (Extractor Trick)

-As soon as you reach 200 minerals build a pool and an extractor

-Then two more Drones so you get back up to 15 supply

-Against Protoss (who expanded early) you might want to build two additional Drones to not fall back too far, if your attack wont deal enough damage

-Build another Overlord

-After the extractor finishes instantly saturate it with 3 drones.

-After the pool finishes build one queen and from there on out, ONLY ZERGLINGS

-At 100 gas start the Metabolic Boost Upgrade

-At 50 gas build a Baneling Nest

With the lings you created so early you want to deal some damage as fast as possible. If you are playing on a 4-player-map you can also use them to scout, since they are a lot faster than overlords.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------- Additions ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Depending on the map you are playing on, and what style your opponent is playing you might want to wait infront of his natural or main to build up a small ling, bane force before attacking.

-Dont hesitate to throw down an Evolution Chamber either if you see your opponent going for upgrades to even things out, or just to get in the lead.

-If your opponent is choosing to also throw down a 15 pool (or earlier) you might want to stay home and wait for banelings, to push back his aggression, then counterpush to win

-IMPORTANT: If your opponent chooses to go for a roach transition after his ling aggression he had to spend more minerals and gas then you have to build the roach warren (and maybe even a 2nd extractor). So the earlier you attack his base and pick off his units, the more likely you are to win, because you will have a superior army.

-You might want to consider throwing down a 2nd Hatch either at your natural or just in your main as a macro hatch if you feel like you are in the lead. Only do this though if you really have too much minerals. All your larva should go instantly into zerglings (or overlords if you need more supply of course).

--------------------------------------------------------------------------- Transitions ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Ususally you do not need a transition, because you are going to win with the attack. If your opponent is like really good at defending and/or goes for an aggressive opening himself, i would recommend one of the following:

-Mutas; for the classic muta, ling, bane style

-Roaches (Ravagers); works most of the time, especially in lower leagues, where your opponent is not likely to do well at splitting his army to avoid corrosive biles.

-Hydras (Lurkers); can also be combined with Roach/Ravager. You should choose Mutas or Hydras if your opponent is transitioning into air himself, or just to go for a strong push with for example +1 Attack Hydra, Ling.

-You really can do anything on Lair tech. Even Infestor, Ravager is pretty strong (if you can land the fungals^^). But the first step to transition is 1. Start Lair. 2. Get a 2nd (or even 3rd) extractor. 3. Get a natural expansion or even a third Hatch if you feel save to do so.
