Like what about outlasting your opponent in extreme lag condition with Chaos because it is necessary for the early game micro management.
What do you guys think?
If you guys have any good strats share them :)

I usually give up on crawler micro and hope they don't know anything about how to use their swords. I then use the lag against them and rely on bombs they can't split against to kill off the swords.
When it goes to deads + remaining crawlers versus archers + swords usually I win, because lag really favours my tanky deads over the micro dependant archers.

Late game I ditch wing mass as CAs shread it before I can get the ping to retreat my wings, and I usually resort to Medusa mass + Chaos Giants as lag will again help me out, with ninjas not being so capable under heavy delay.

Doesn't typically get to that point. Even if it does, if you're having population issues you've made way too many deads and/or juggers.

If you have to retreat with Dead's its's GG final answer.

I remember a top chaos player who was notorious for being lag used early bomber rush strategy
he was able to utilize the lag and destroy the opponent's economy in a few minutes
so I guess I would bomb rush if I encounter laggy situation :c

At no point have I mentioned retreating with deads?

If you have to retreat then you did something wrong... with chaos if you have enough deads and at least the same amount of jugs as enemy spears you win the battle every time cause of dead armor rating.
