By the time you have your spire finished, your enemy will be knocking your front door wiith a timing push of mm or the typical timing push from protoss. This only works if your left alone...the entire game and your spire is not scouted. This build is very gas intensive (muta/hydra), and the time for the spire is very long.

This makes them invincible unless your opponent invests heavily in stealth detection.
Problem with Roaches, they take massive dmg due to the armor type. The range on Roach is horriiible, they are extremely slow at start. The hp regeneration is T3 and require a massive investment / time (I have never seen any pro player tech to t3 just to research hp regeneration while burrowed). Now they are 2 food, making early zerg very weak without a meat shield, they work pretty well massed, but still fall down just as fast due to everything hard countering them (unless ure playing zerg...then the only thing hardcounter u is spine crawler lol)

Hydra's are probably the best all around unit zerg has, their main weakness is hp/speed, but they shoot so faaaaaaast.[/quote]

If you see brood lords and your surprised he build it...then you deserve to lose. They take for EVA to build, you need to build a infestor tech building, then tech hive to t3, then upgrade spire to greater spire (which takes years to do), and then finally you can convert your corruptors to brood lords.....if during this time you never scouted/never thought...hmm he has corruptors/infestor pit....then ofcourse you should lose the game.

I think the entire roach change was way over the top, blizz plans to buff ultra to be the late game tank, but they nerfed roaches without actually fixing the ultra, so zerg atm cannot build a strong meat shield.
