    Well, keep in mind that I have 0 ladder experience in Starcraft 2, but some general tips are:

    - Always make more Drones, but have one to scout out your opponent. If you see your opponent switching to an aggresion build, stop making Drones and start making military units.

    - Always try to fast expand as Zerg. You usually need to be one base up on your opponent in order to cement an advantage.

    - One of Zerg's greatest perks is the ability to tech switch rapidly, by stocking up on larva. If you see a strategy you can't immediately counter, get the building that lets you counter it, then mass up on said unit (Mutalisks against a ground-only attack heavy army, for example).

    - Queens. Queens are essential to a Zerg's dominance. Get used to putting your Hatcheries and Queens in Control Groups. This will help you play faster and more efficiently. smile

    Also, there are several hubs that talk about this topic, so feel free to search them out and read them. smile

    Hope this helps!
