I have been played starcraft and watched progammers games for 10 years. So I believe I know major concepts of stacraft for the victory.
It'is very good idea for Ai to use lurkers aginst terran rather than mutals and hydras since AI does not control mutals. However, you may also know that lurkers are not very effective in later game when terran has heavry armys because AI's lurkers usually do not react to fight before they got attacked. Lurkers are all dead before they borrow to attack. Myk's zerg proved ultra + ling is very powerful against M+M. however, myk zerg is very feeble before it gets ultra and gets 2rd expansion too late. Therefore, I believe use a few lurker to defend in early game to get 2nd expandsion and use zergling + ultra + defiler for late game. also, ai should use a few scourges and hydras for anti-air.
Also,I believe zerg should have more expansion than toss or terran in order to defeat them. It is really important for zerg to have 2nd expansion at right timing.
I found that no zerg ai can defeat Accel T v1.52. I hope Rocky Z can defeat Accel T. l /rolleyes.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':rolleyes:' />
Wow, thank you so much for your detailed explanation! I really appreciate it. It really helps so much.
I've made a start with the AI by adding a specific block for Terrans. I got the AI to attack around 8:30 or 10:00 with Lurkers/Zerglings and a few Hydra's. But I'll have a lot of work ahead of me. (Teching towards Ultra's/Defilers) The Science Vessel with Irradiate can really be a big problem. The AI often doesn't place Spore Colonies well, and it doesn't always build enough Scourges to counter either. And if it does, the AI doesn't seem to use them well, often just leaving them somewhere at the other side of the map. But trying to work that out is all part of the fun.
I don't think I'll ever be able to make an AI that can match awesome AI's like for example Unleaded T or Accel T, but it will be fun working on an AI specially geared towards Terran.
Thanks again for your advice.

EDIT: I probably lost because I went too many upgrades and also robotech + temp archives.
Thanks a lot for the replay, Taranok. I really appreciate it.
Loved the early Nexus, it was well played and I believe if you had (like you said) focused a little more on a certain path (for example Templars or Reavers) you could have turned the game around.
