What you can do is pop a queen into an overseer before speed is done, drive over to the other side of the map, poop creep, then pop a few creep tumours. Now you can spread creep from two sides of a map.

now I have a craving to look for some mass queen drop vids... know any?
I did this once: Loaded up a queen full of energy, spewed creep into corner of opponent's base on LT. Then I laid down 4 creep tumours and spread creep. On his vision, all he sees is creep spreading near his nexus, etc....

man I haven't played 1v1 in a while and i suck in general anyway, but I thought I'd start again today and played about 15 games. I won every TvP because they 4 gated every time and I lost every single freaking TVZ. Didn't get any TvT at all which was weird. I have to work on my TvZ, but I struggle to find the balance.

If I don't push hard early then they roflstomp me after keeping me turtled with muta/lings which also negated my drops. I've never succesfully rushed them even when they early expand and even when doing a TLO style 6 rax rush. So I have to keep trying to push them and keep them on the back foot but I haven't been able to do that without falling behind in macro. Then in the late game your army is geared towards muta/ling and then you either under produce vikings and get squashed by broodlord corrupter, or over produce and a few fungle growths take all your vikings.

Maybe I should just plan going stealth banshee if the initial push fails. How do you handle it?

Found this cheesy strat when doing placement matches, two players go zerg and 6 pool to take out one player, then the third player on your team makes Marine Marauder and when you face resistance you bring the marines/marauders, out of the four times we have tried it in placement matches we have won everytime we lost one because we didn't use that strategy.

There's no such thing as cheese in 3v3. If every single member of your team does a timing push that's around the same time for everyone (4gate, Roaches, Sling Bling, 6rax marines, M+M+Stim) you should be able to dominate at least one person on the opposite team, if not win outright. But, If the other 2 are allowed to continue to tech without pressure, they usually show up 2-4 minutes after your timing push with tanks, cloaked banshees, colossi or mutas.

Try having 2 zerg+ 1 terran and have one zerg go sling/roaches, one zerg go sling/bling and the terran go mass marine. You should all be able to leave your base right when any rushed DTs would be coming, around 6-7 minutes, in which case you can hold back for a sec. Let the roaches lead, with the marines just behind, and use the slings to go kill mineral lines.

What are blings? I don't play Zerg usually as I play Protoss more. I'm pretty sure slings are speedlings? So blings would be... bad lings
EDIT: Nvm I got it, banelings....
