Ok so I just started sc2 3 days ago.

I would like to know if you get an economic advantage if you create an overlord on 9 supply rather than on 10.
Cause I always created 10 drones then overlord but watching some replays made me ask this question.

overlord on 9
or overlord on 10 with gastrick (on 10 supply get gas, produce a drone and cancel extractor, you then have 11/10)

i do 9 ovie if i am going pool first, i do 10 ovie w/ no gas trick if i am going hatch first. I don't have any particular reasoning why, but i think the 14 and 15 drones come slightly quicker with the 10 ovie, but with the 9 ovie they might come out slightly later, but you get the 11 and 12 drones quicker.

I guess the big reasoning for why I do this is that my timings line up quite well this way. And that actually is an important thing.

9 overlord is the easiest to not fuck up, and is arguably the best. I would strongly recommend 9 ovi instead of gas trick, but both are better than 10 overlord.
