I'm rather new to Brood War and have been trying to find build orders and just in General, a playstyle that works for me on the ladder, specifically for the PvZ matchup, but have some more questions:
1) From reading the PvZ build orders, guides and some Forum Posts here, it seems like the General Consensus in modern Brood War is that the Neo Bisu Build is the most "Standard" way to Play PvZ. Now what Kind of intimidates me from running it, is the description that it Needs really good Multitasking and that poorly performed Micro or macro will make it lose even vs the Zerg builds that it's supposed to soft Counter. Is there any Major advice that People could give me about this? Should I practise other build orders first, and Switch back to the Neo Bisu build when I'm comfortable enough? Or do I just go through Trial & error with the build until I "git gud"?
2) In the Explanation of the Neo Bisu Build order it says that the build order was created because 3 Base Spire into 5 Hatch Hydra rendered the "original" Bisu build ineffective, and that it's the best answer People found to that build... but if I read the 3 Base Spire into 5 Hatch Hydra article, it says that this build soft Counters the Neo Bisu Build? Is one of those Statements wrong, or did I misunderstand something?
3) The Forge Fast Expansion article says that "multiple Zerg all-ins were created to soft Counter this" and prevent/delay an early Expansion by Zergling rushes or Hydra busts. This again confused me, because it seems to imply FFE builds were weaker to early all-ins than 1 base builds. I wonder how this works exactly, because for example None of the 1 base tech builds described in the PvZ build articles have cannons or a Forge early?
Aka if I Play a 1 base tech build, do I wall off my main's ramp with the early Gate etc., in a similar way that I would wall off my Natural in FFE? Or do I rely on the Zealot at 13 to defend my base from Zergling Rushes?
From what I understood, the "only" or at least MAIN reason why FFE builds are considered Standard, is because it allows you to get a better economy to not fall behind vs macro-oriented Zerg builds, while still being RELATIVELY safe vs early Aggression. Now on low mmr macro oriented Zerg builds seem really rare, so would it be a better Option in my Situation to Focus on 1 base tech builds instead?
Already thanks for your replies, and I hope those questions weren't TOO idiotic or that I overlooked something that's obvious for others. Looking Forward to the answers
