I haven't seen this brought up anywhere yet, so I thought I'd chime in with my strategic genius.

I didn't catch it at first, but Teeming Spawn can be used to build your third base (for special victory) during the first Stage III regrouping phase. All you need is a unit on a third planet. This makes winning with special victory much easier, or at least forces Aldaris to play Destiny instead of Will of the Conclave.

Does anyone else use this?

In our last thirty games, we didn't reach stage III, so it's useless for us.

Definitely... however, anyone selecting their special victory leadership card is almost guaranteed to be beaten into the ground before stage 3 ever comes close.

Not a tough choice since another Stage III Leadership of Overmind is much weaker and I'd play it only if I can't / don't have to build more units, transports etc.

Both Zerg factions have very easy Special Victory conditions, only the one of Mengsk or maybe Aldaris may compete with their own leadership cards.
