Serious question. Don't say roach because it doesn't work and if you say banelings then I am just going to quit playing zerg in general and join the no talent stalker crowd. And phoenix's are ******** stupid now!

It's true, Zerg really does need some loving right now. Although I will say a good bunch of Mutalisks or Hydras with a Zergling surround will do wonders against them.

If you can't tech that far, you need more Spine Crawlers.

Roaches AND Hydras. Maybe later on you could go for ultras?

But you are seriously limiting yourself by not using banelings.

I've found hydras with the range upgrade and speedlings do a pretty good job countering only mass stalkers. If they throw in sentries I've yet to find a really good strategy to counter it. I just hope I can take out the sentries fast enough to have enough units left over to take out the stalkers.

Could you infest a sentry to gain the advantage, the problem is that it is likely to be followed by your infestor being instagibbed.

I was wondering if the few seconds of having a shield of your own would be worth it.

The main problem is, toss just walls themselves in with photon cannons and starts cranking out stalkers. The is no real way to make an offense threat without losing a bunch of units. I have tried speedlings w/ roach and w/ hydras and even a combo of the two. I tried to deny their expansions but a smart toss will throw down a pylon and build photons after it completes before starting the expansion.

GAH i seriously lose about 9/10s of games against toss.

I find roaches will usually do pretty well against stalkers, especially since you should outnumber them by quite a bit considering roaches cost 75/25/1 and stalkers are 125/50/2. I did have one really frustrating match though on incineration zone where I thought I was macroing pretty well and pumped out a ton of roaches and spine crawlers,only to get completely obliterated by stalker pushes over and over again. I'm pretty sure that was mostly due to stalkers having a big advantage in chokes because of their range though. You need an open space to take advantage of your larger number of roaches since their range is terrible.
