    Does Destroying Hatcheries Reduce Zerg Spawns?

    See title. Unfortunately I can't tell from gameplay because the rest of my team tends to die before I can do much.

    The number of Zerg spawned each wave is constant, and Zerg can spawn from any living hatchery on the map. Killing a hatchery won't reduce the number of zerg spawned, but having a hatchery in your backyard can be dangerous.

    Still would be cool to kill off all but one or two and build Siege Tanks, Big Berthas, etc. around them to quarantine the Zerg. Very Happy

    Impractical, but fun to think about.

    Just managed to wipe out all Hatcheries on the map in a real game -> no Kerrigan spawns XD

    It is useful. Just wipe out hatcheries nearest to your 'defence' position. therefore it will take some time before they finally come at you.
    Either that or distance them so they come a tiny bit at a time (i.e., a manageable amount at a time) by making sure there aren't any 'clumps' of hatcheries.

    i think management is impractical, or perfectionist. not sure which

    so essentially, when i thought i was pro by killing surrounding hatcheries and possibly all of them.. i was actually damning the noobs nearby. surely theres another option
