n. Using massive amounts of weak, or generic units, to attack an enemy.
Used widely in PlanetSide, to describe massive amount of soliders that spawn in a tower, and then attack a base.
It comes from the word wordzerg/word. Zergs in Starcraft were able to produce large amount of units very quickly.

In MMORPGs, it is also the term of a person creating accounts solely for game-breaking purposes.
E.G: In Urban Dead, people create alts (zerging) for the sole purpose of breaking down barriers, then logging on as their main character and killing everyone inside.

Units were cheap to make and it was possible to make extreme numbers in short period of time.
