    I'm a starcraft fan to say the least... Plus I love esports so the combination goes well together.

    I' am a halo fan so naturally I' ll pick flood but its an interesting mix because both flood and zerg are so similar in many regards. 

    -They both have the ability to multiply rapidly
    -Both can assimilate the memories of captured victims
    -Can mutate to adjust biomass to suit there needs

    What I think puts the flood over the line is that they can never be wiped out. "A single spore can wipe out an entire species". Also, while the zerg have a overmind as their centre of collective intelligence its vulnerable to being killed if its unable to spawn off another overmind which leaves the zerg without control. The flood have a gravemind and in some cases a key mind (Entire planets that act as a giant super computer) that when killed are simply created again once a flood form reaches critical mass and the process starts over.
