Symbol (Z) vs Flash (T)
Very nice Zerg play!
A few significant choices Symbol made worth pointing out IMO:
- In his first attack, he made a point to focus down 4 Supply Depots (3 at third base, & 1 at wall in Natural), this supply blocked Terran for a bit.
- He also destroyed the 2 Ebays that were part of the front wall.
- He immediately withdrew after accomplishing these limited objectives (ie he didn't overextend).
I've blogged before about how strong Roach & Banelings with Air Support can be, see this TLO vs Satini game http://cliffsesportcorner.blogspot.com/2012/02/tlo-vs-satini.html, though I tend to favor Corrupters over the Mutas used here.
I prefer Corrupters because I feel they are more cost efficient vs Terran than Mutas.
Six (6) Corrupters will 2 shot Medivacs, so 6 to 12 Corrupters in early game, and in mid or late game Broodlords can be much more useful than Mutas.
Midgame I would use them more for harassment on certain maps that have dead air space behind bases.
You can fly 1 or 2 Corrupters behind a Terran base, and then upgrade them to Broodlord.
If you do that to 2 bases at same time, and have a Nydus network, you can drop Nydus in weak or undefended base with Broodlings providing vision & cover for Nydus.
