yea i'm sure when the game first game out, zergs lost to reapers mainly because skills issues
Not the same case. Reapers hitting THAT quickly was imbalanced as hell. It was anywhere from difficult to nigh impossible to defend.
The 6 queen opener, on the other hand, shuts down too much aggression that forces the zerg to fight on fair terms. Pretty much gotta start bunker rushing 15 hatch zergs now or at least do banshee-heavy openers if your micro is good enough with them, as banshees force spores, overseers, puts queens out of position and with 2-3 banshees you can actively hunt them down.
6 queens shuts down aggression... so your answer to it is to throw agression at it?
I should rectify that: More types of aggression that isn't bio or hellions. Banshees can do a ton if you wait on a second before you harass, as two banshees will kill a queen in 4 volleys, which is pretty fast. Alternately do bunker rushes and keep them from getting mass queens that fast.
If a zerg's doing the 6 queen opener, make two banshees, have cloak, and go kill the queens that are isolated at their base. I usually see them just a bit outside their natural and third spreading creep. Take advantage of that by killing lone queens at bases and workers. I recently had a game where I managed to snipe off 5 queens with just two banshees due to cloak before spores and overseers were up and running, but by then I also made off with 12-13 drone kills.
Those banshees eventually died to fungals, but I'd rather the banshees eat fungals than 10 marines.
No reason not to bunker rush every game, high reward low risk --- i dont like my username. so please just call me Mark "Always 1A" Minigun

I played terran for months and hit a serious wall at low master against protoss and zerg. My macro is insanely good compared to the P and Z players I faced on ladder and this frustrated me. So I tried to practice protoss a bit and in one week I whas able to compete against master zerg players. This game is really f***ed up, I think blizzard will suffer serious reputation damage because WoL is still not balanced after 2 years.
