One-Two Punch Strategy Guide — Zerg versus Zerg
Good day ladies and gentlemen!
My name is Tim “Tang” Clark, and I’d like to welcome you to a guide featuring an aggressive approach to Zerg versus Zerg. The One-Two Punch is a cheesy name for a 2-stage timing attack. It’s fitting, because it’s kind of a cheesy build.
Punch One: 12 Speedlings arrive ~5:45
Punch Two: 20 Roaches and 36 Speedlings arrive ~10:00
This is a style of sequenced aggression: the aim is to open with “light” Speedling pressure (Punch 1), and follow it up with a massive mid-game Roach-Ling attack (Punch 2). There is also the potential for subsequent “punches”, but the primary intention is to win with the second attack.
There is also room for different variations of Punch 1 and 2, but for simplicity’s sake, this guide will focus on a single build. Keep in mind, though, that this is absolutely the kind of style that you should customize once you’re familiar with it, and I look forward to seeing what some of you come up with 😉
