Thanks a lot for all this info. Really helps a lot.

Only thing I can seem to find is how the 'Basic Build Order' on the wiki works. I understand the general idea but what do the numbers (10, 12, 13 ...) in the left column means.

ex:

Basic Build

Note that timings are mostly relative

* 10 Supply Depot (and throughout)
* 12 Barracks (Marines throughout)
* 13 Refinery


Thanks again

for zerg

10 supply, do extractor trick

11 supply spawning pool

10 supply overlord

10 extractor

9 drone

15 queen

18 roach

17 drone

18 two overlords (you don't need 2 right now, but you will once ur roach warren is built)

use queen ability spew larva ASAP

At this point u can either go from 18 to 34 supply wit just roaches and get 8 roahces, but i suggest getting two drones as soon as your first overlord hatches. then going from 20 - 34 supply for 7 roaches. micro the 7 roahces up. get two more overlords. once they are ready, hatch another 2 drones and 7 roahces, or just 8 roaches. Now you have 14 - 16 roaches. You can continue to do this, but will soon run out of gas, you will become mineral heavy. So you have to learn how to transition to either an expansion, or get another extractor and pump out a lot of drones while you micro your roaches.
