King's Fianchetto Opening as a begineer

Dijkstra98

Is it bad for a beginner to play this opening as i tend to get to a fianchetto position but at the same time my opponent gets control of the center but i also feel i can compensate  that

It might be interesting to experiment but I think you will get rolled, repeatedly.

I'm a beginner myself and the advice I hear a lot is for beginners to play straight forward, symetrical e4/5 openings as these lead to open games that teach good chess fundamentals. As you suggest, you need to know to how t get compensation. You may find it works for you with lower rated players but not as rating increases.

To be fair, at 1000, he won’t be losing games cause he starts with an early fianchetto. So, what harm is there, really?

But, to the OP, I would just recommend finding an opening and playing it over and over until you get a feel it (the proper moves, the typical counters and mistakes, possible tactical traps, etc.). I started with the Ruy Lopez before kicking over to d4. Just find an opening that your comfortable with and run with it.

What's your personal opinion on which is the most important piece besides the king?

don't know what harm will be. I'm a beginner. Might be a better question for an experienced instructor to answer. If they google the question (about why e4/5 openings are recommended for beginners) they'll probably find blogs by instructors giving good explanations as to the reasons.
