This week we’re going to break down a PvZ opening that NaNiwa used against Jaedong at the WCS Season 2 Finals. The build uses Stargate play to take map control early and secure a really fast third Nexus as we work up to a Charge-Zealot/Archon/Void Ray composition. This style is fun to watch and even more fun to play, so I’m really happy to share it with you!
As always, I really appreciate your feedback and would love to hear more! Let me know in the comments what you think. Let’s hunt some Zerg!
