In this build order we learn a standard opening you can use against any race.
First we build a Hatchery, then a Spawning Pool and take one gas. It is possible that the Protoss tries to block our expansion with a Pylon. Then we just build our Spawning Pool first and place our expansion where we’d actually take our third base.
With 3 workers we collect gas. As soon as we have 100 gas we research Zerglingspeed. Against Protoss we want to scout with out first two Zerglings. The other two stay in our base to help Queens with a possible Adept attack.
If we see the Protoss builds one gas and takes an expansion, we can stick to our plan.
But if he takes two Gas Geysers, we have to scout with an Overlord or Zerglings which kind of tech he is aiming for. Does he want to play a Stargate, Robotics Facility or Twilight Council?
We position our first Overlord in a way we can send it into the enemy base. The second one stays in a position where we can see when he takes his third. We send the first Overlord into the enemy's base between 3:20 and 3:40. In case we see a Robotics Facility (or a Twilight Council) and only 2 Gas, we instantly build a Roach Warren - an Immortal Adept Push is coming our way. We only saturate half of our third base and start the Roach production.
After holding our enemy’s attack we want to saturate all 3 of our bases. Aditionally we want to have 5 Gas Geysers and the +1 Missile Attack and the Hydralisk Upgrade should be in research as well.
While waiting for the upgrades to finish all we do is build Hydralisks and Zerglings.
Right before they finish we move over to the enemy’s third base. While doing so we take our fourth base.
The goal of our attack is to destory the enemy’s third base. If we succeed we adiotionally try to snipe some expensive Protoss units like Immortals, Void Rays or Disruptors.
It doesn’t matter if we succeed or not because we have already prepared our transition into our follow up.
- 4x Hatchery
- 72-74x Drones
- Minerals:1x8 +2x16 + 1x8-10
- Gas: 4x6
- Infestaion Pit
- optional: Lurker Den
- +2 Missile +1 Armor Upgrades
After this push we transfer half of our Drones from our main to the fourth base. We build a sixth, seventh and eighth Gas Geyser and a second Evolution Chamber (for the +2 Missile Attack and +1 Armor).
Aditionally we want to tech to Hive for Broodlords and Vipers. We constantly want to have a 3 base income and try to trade the expensive units of the Protoss. We also try to weaken his income. As soon as we have Broodlords we try to finish the game with a Hydralisk/Broodlord/Viper composition.
