Defiler has Plague and Dark Swarm.

Plague will put this blood looking stuff over the area where you select it. It will slowly kill the carriers for about 30 seconds. It's very useful and it will hurt them greatly. Dark swarm is even more useful. It will create a small cloud of smoke stuff and anything underneath that cloud CANNOT be hurt by air or distant enemies. Only melee (zealots, zerglings, ect.) can hurt things under dark swarm. By the time you get attacked by carriers, you should have defilers. Dark swarm, put your hydras under it, then hit the carriers with plague and you will own them. If the carriers start to run towards your base to get away from the dark swarm, then follow them with the hydras, until they stop and start attacking you, then use swarm again... its a flawless way to piss your enemy off big time.

Keep the enemy down echonomically so he cant afford carriers (and dont play money maps), that way he can afford at most 5-6 carriers. Then use dark swarm on ur hydras and scourge the carriers. If he sends zealots under the dark swarm pull back.

Skuzzy's strat works for me too. Defilers are great, especially with zerglings around for Consume. Protoss players really hate Plague (Carriers look so weak when they're at 0/300 hitpoints (bloodred) ). Plus, throw in a control group of Hydralisks under Dark Swarm. That'll REALLY piss a Protoss player off.

the best strat i used against carriers is to make a plague spell on the carriers and hol on (w/spore colonies), and when they are hurt i send a couple of muta that finish the job (the mutas's spores damage various units at the same time

Mutas sux against carriers. Scourges are better.

Scourge(2): 75G 25M
Carrier: 350G 250M

5 scourges = 187.5G 52.5M
1 Carrier = 350G 250M

Hurts when they combine????
What if you already plagued the carrier......................

If your zerg do wat skuzzy said. Plauge, Swarm Hydras, And use Scourges to finish the job

if they approach slowly and carefully, i find that usually scourges are utterly useless without something to shield them since they have low life and none really hit unleses you got a mass, and even then it comes to no avail if they have corsairs.

Carriers by themself die pretty nicely with scourges, because they cant hit them in time, the most (the interceptors need to fly over and over)

Otherwise, the old DS and hydras under it tactic

Everyone is right. Scouges are cheep and easy to get, but combind them with other Broods. Attact the enemy before he reaches your base, but always have spore colones defending your perimeter. Game on non-money maps, having all that money is really a weekness, remember your enemy has the same amount of money has you do! Gaming on non-money maps eliminates your enemy from having all that money. Now the battle is focused on conquering vacant land that has the resources (gas/minerals).
