This is only to get you decent fundamentals and progress forwards.
This Build is designed to get you to your Optimal starting position.
If you scout aggression or see units coming across. Stop where you are and create army. You may resume after the enemy push has been defeated.
After this is finished you are to build X many overlords with each Inject Cycle. X Being your Saturated Mineral Lines
|17||1:15|| ||Rally next 3 Drones into gas|
|20||1:50|| ||Save up from here to get the 2 queens + 2 lings|
|24||2:04|| ||These will become your Scouting Lings|
|26||2:13|| ||After this take 2 drones off gas and put on the Natural minerals|
|30||2:36|| ||Use the First Drone from the Natural|
|29||2:42|| ||Out Front the Natural. This is your Creep/Defense Queen|
|29||2:45|| ||Made in Natural to replace the queen|
|36||3:03|| ||You might Supply Block but this will be for 1-3 Seconds|
|36||3:16|| ||Rally These 2 Drones into your Gas|
|44||3:30|| ||This is to replace your Scout|
|44||3:45|| ||Preferably in Natural|
|50||3:55|| ||Make at 3rd|
|50||4:00|| ||You Make 2 Overlords at a Time since on 2 Base mining|
From here you either Drone your 3rd or Make Army depending on what your scouted 3:30.
ZvP - 3rd Nexus around 4:00 to 5:00 = Safe to drone 3rd and take 4th after
ZvT - 3rd Command Center around 4:00 to 5:00 = Safe to drone 3rd and take 4th after
Tech lab on Barracks = Expect Stim Timing around 6-7 Min = Split army army Bases
Lots of Factories = Mech Based Strong Mid Game = Play Roach Ravager
Tech Lab on Factory = Expect Tanks and turtle Terran = Play Roach Ravager Muta
More than 1 Starport = Battle Cruisers = 2-3 Queens in each base Get Hydra Den
Tech Lab on Starport = Expect Banshees = 2-3 Queens in each base 2 Spores in each base
Tech Lab on Factory with lots on Barracks = Tank push around 7-8 Min = try to catch them before siege
ZvZ Base Count is first Priority, use first Lings to scout this. You need the overlords to scour the natural and out front his base exits
2 Main Scouts: - 2:00 Scout for natural - 3:30 Scout for Drones and Gas in Natural
1 Base = You noticed this with the first overlord - 1 Spine + 1 Bane Nest - Make Ling Bane don't drone your 2nd
2 Base but no drones = You should expect mass lings - Wall off natural with bane nest, 2 Evo's, and Queen on hold position - You make drone until you see the lings leave the base - Play Ling Bane
2 Base with drones and 2 Gas = 2 Base Muta - Get 2 Queen and 2 spores in each base - Play Ling Bane Hydra
2 Base with drones and 0 Gas = 2 Base Timing Attack - Can help have Upgrades +1 Ranged preferably +1 Armor if you have the gas - Play Ling Roach Ravager
3 Base down Make a few Safety Roach/Banes and drone your 3rd and take your 4th after.
If no 3rd Base by 3:30 expect army very soon

This is intended to be used for players Platinum and below. Once you are Diamond you should learn a real build. The Opener might look very similar to how this other openers if you are going Economic, But there is more to do after the first 4 Min of the Game.
