I noticed there's a lot of outdated stuff in here now, such as Nerfalisk's timings thread. Might want to look at that if you have the time.

The metagame may change, but basic timings rarely do. The only thing on his list I can see is off is the 4 gate, and only by about 10 seconds.

But I am nearly out of room, so the next time I add more guides I'll be looking for things to cut.

Vibe also has a good stream that teaches alot about zerg play. Watch his games and ask question and he will answer them between matches. http://www.twitch.tv/vibelol

I'm glad you brought that up! I've been watching his stream as well and have learned a TON!
I recommend everyone watch his stream at least once, you won't regret it!

But I don't want to link want to link anything in the OP that isn't up 24/7, so my link to http://www.teamliquid.net/video/streams/ will have to do.

I think you should add FilterSC's new guide - very solid stuff focusing on 2 base macro first, then starting to extend into more nuance and has an excellent pedagogical approach:

dApollo's guide is a good candidate to add but isn't as solid as FilterSC's

Thanks for the videos Oddible! I've added them and removed a few dead links.

My laptop was stolen, and with it all the guides I've been intending to add, so anything you guys can throw at me will help!

Coming back to the game after not playing for more than a year. Are all of these guides still relevant? Even the ones written back in 2010?

Specific builds may be out of date, but everything macro related should be the same.

blizzard currently its pretty much impossible for zerg players to deal with sky toss (aka phoenix void ray tempest and mabye some carriers) the reason for this is because of the tempest insane range can stay out of distance of all zerg ground units (due to the tempest) and just blow the zerg to bits that makes there 3 options for the zerg to do witch currently none of these options are effective. #1 option is to get mutalisk and try to snipe some tempest. this is really really hard considering that pheonix can just kite the mutas and your spire can easily be sniped before you have the chance to get enough mutalisks. the 2nd option zergs have is corruptors witch isnt every good either considering the tempest can out range them easily and void rays with there new prismatic alignment ability rip them apart. the last option for zerg is to get vipers and abduct the tempest into your hydras spore crawlers infestors or what ever. but the problem with that is tempest can out range the vipers and just run away well the pheonix void ray just rip apart the vipers. the soloution for this i would say would to be increasing the life of vipers so they can take the heat and give abduct a greater range to deal with the tempest insane range

Thank you for putting this together! I've only scratched the surface of what you have posted here and I have already gotten a little bit better. :)
