Earlier this week I played in the WCS Challenger League against the Zerg player HyuN. I spent a lot of time developing the fast-paced, aggressive style that I used in my matches against him and I really enjoyed featuring it in the WCS.
I’ve received a lot of positive feedback and questions about the play style that I used, so I thought it’d be fun to lay it out for you guys and break down the strategy that I’m using right now.
So, what’s the build? Much like StarDust’s PvZ style, I use a highly-upgraded, low-tech army to dominate the mid-game. However, my style is unique in the amount of emphasis that I put on warp prism play and multi-pronged attacks. It’s a lot of fun to play and can really push your multitasking skills to their limits, so I’m looking forward to sharing it with you guys!
