|15||spam zerglings + overlords|
The tactic is simple , kill the zealot wall in and win the game , your first wave of lings arrive at 4:50-4:58 so your opponent is not even close to warpgate tech and he cant hold it without at least 2-3 cannons along with a heavy zealot wall in , i have won games against 3-4 zealots wall ins along with sentries and even against a cannon wall in with 1 zealot.
There's more than enough drones to maintain ling count especially if you pull all the gas drones and place them on minerals. Protosses that scout this will probably think you're 11 pool 18 hatching as a counter to 2 gate pressure/cannon rushing/pylon blocking the expo. I only show them 4-6 lings and harass the wall-in like zergs normally do. Meanwhile I'm rallying all my lings nearby but out of sight and just as speed is about to finish I a-move the zealot and just before it dies I a-move the reinforcements. I guess the point is to not alert the protoss that a wave of lings are incoming so they don't pull drones to pylon wall in fast enough.
On some maps, you can position your zealot so that only 1 zergling can hit it. I think that would prove a problem but not too much considering the amount of lings
all maps are good for this except shakuras maybe.
