Hey guys, it's HuShang with another build order!

This one is orientated towards brand new zerg players. It's a very powerful roach timing that will allow you to work on the fundamentals of playing zerg such as consistent injects, a macro cycle to keep you on track and a focus on creating and managing your economy instead of focusing on the fights.

As always, if you enjoy the build order, don't forget to give it a thumbs up!

@Cription no missing Overlord, you forgot that you build a Hatchery @ 16, and that Hatcheries give supply

@MeHow85... well, that is simply a lack of scouting on your part.... nothing really to do with the build
Don't play roach against void rays....

I played this build for the first time. Went 4 zergling at 24. Executated it quite OK. Unfortunatelly when I arrived with my roaches my opponent had already 2 void rays with 2 other popping a few seconds into my attacked. It failed really bad and he already build 3rd nexus, while I was on two hatches. After failed attack I quickly build queens and spores and managed to defend his counterattack without too much damage. But his macro was way too ahead and at my level I wasn't able to catch up and lost. I think this build isn't too great against protos, since the meta even at lower leagues is void rays. Played this at MMR at 3080.

Build is missing an overlord. Overlord at 30 only gets you to 36. Next overlord is at 44.

I am in platinum for a very good start and I am about to be promoted to diamond and so far I am using it with minor changes.
Mega recommend to new players.
