Actually, I was inspired by Special beating Classic.
And I've never been a contrarian. I play what I find fun to play. It turns out that, as a more aggressive player on average, the hyper-defensive strategies that usually define the Zerg meta don't appeal to me. Also, I think Zerg lategame is generally worse than the other races and their midgame is generally better, and mutas are both fun to play and extremely strong midgame.
Probably not so coincidentally, I've been spamming 2/1/1, which is a very midgame focused build.
I guess every single person at that level doesn't scout for hidden bases or doesn't recognise there might be hidden bases
