What are some good and popular zerg builds? Even just a basic foundation, this will be my first time playing zerg and I'm only top 8 bronze for terran ( got the game like a month or so ago but haven't played ). More interested into zerg so if someone would like to help


cheers

Literally thousands of websites regarding BO's for each race.

TL (TeamLiquid) has lot's, as well as loads of discussion regarding builds. You can also head to Liquipeida or sc2sea.com, CG doesn't really have an active SC2 forum so far as i'm aware.

Don't look at some old guides. The Zerg meta has changed over the past couple months. Take a look at some VoDs and streams and just take note of what the player is doing. Also, it's better to learn a build order/macro > hotkeys > micro-management since you are new. It will be a lot to take in.

It's better going on 15 for hatch first, 14 for pool first.

oh a bronze zerg.
just focus on getting an expansion and keep consistent queen injections on your hatches, avoid 6 pooling or all ins to help you get used to applying early pressure but providing consistent re-enforcements.
so you macro you base, expand , build an army attack either their wall off or their expansion retreat before losing your units but not so far they're basically at your base, constantly build more units and once you feel comfortable or even trial and error just keep forcing pressure on them and don't forget to tech up.

easy wins can be from fast muta rush but leaves you open in ZvZ for mass speedlings / baneling attacks.
or i'll find the build tomorrow. i was a plat protoss player, changed to zerg ended up in silver i'm now top 8 platnium after using the build and adjusting it to my style. same could happen for you.
but in bronze it's not a whole lot of meta game you end up with early - mid game rarely does it ever make it to a medium - end game bronze is cheesy and all in. once you get you're base macro down and a consistent supply of units you'll end up gold then the game changes and becomes really interesting. after gold league it's when it becomes fun and mistakes are costly.

try not to cheese, Doesnt help your skill.

keep the queens going it helps so much in fights etc, make sure of your hotkey positioning etc.

I'll throw up a quick hotkey pic from a rep of mine, granted, hotkeys are all personal preference for everyone so just learn the basics of remembering to hotkey, then start playing around with where you want them all to be!
