    Finally. :D
    Romek clicks on the link, and watches the battle report.

    Finished. Zerg were awesome at the start. Those missiles seem really cheap.
    Though it also seems that units aren't worth as much in Sc2 as they are in Wc3.

    But in Warcraft, it was about stealing creeps and making sure that a single grunt did not die. Here, we send 50 marines to their deaths while reading the morning news. The sheer masses of soldiers made me feel more powerful overall, in Starcraft. The pools of blood and plasma make me feel all warm inside.

    Aye! That's what I always liked about Starcraft. When I started Warcraft III, I was getting pwned lots of times because my Starcraft mentality xD.

    Great game between the Zerg and Terran anyway, at first I though the Zerg would win.
    Btw, did you guys notice that Terran won both of the Battle reports? =O

    Omg ace i love you!!!! Finally zerg yeeeeeeeesssss~~~!!


    EDIT: Smith, the new terran units are too imba. + as in the original starcraft, zerg are made for what wloud appear a very small bunch of players. Not evryone is gifted with the ability to controll them. Indeed us, the zerg players are most hated, because of our dominance, but above all I must say, that the weakest race for the starter player is zerg, because they need... special way of unit controll.

    IF there were...... 2 lurckers.... the zerg wloud have won..... the lurcers wloud have hitted all of the land units at once, and they do 20 dmg. They need 5 seconds to kill the marines and about 10 to kill all marauders... alone, without any other help... Other then that good game. But I expected a bit more from the zerg player.

    All of that seems to assume that they were playing the original StarCraft, and that there are Lurkers in SCII (are there?). Anyway, no one said the game was balanced; these are just for testing purposes.

    I wanted to see the zergrushkekeke. :(

    Either way, it seems those mines are really cheap because they work like a baneling that never misses and cost nothing. =/ I little crazy in my opinion.

    I like the new queen. The unit actually has a distinct purpose now.

    The hunter seeker missile? They move slow and their splash damage affects friendly units too, so you might end up blowing up your own units if your enemy pays attention.


    No more block pathing, units can actually walk until the edge of a cliff, sweet. :D

    > They move slow
    "Slow" being about the same speed as any other unit.
    Even so, making your units run leaves them vulnerable to enemy units.

    Starcraft2 looks really amazing this far. I can't wait for the release:)

    Good to finally see some zerg out there:D I still think that zerg are still about massing units in an efficiant way, that is just even more good news for me;)
    All hail the swarm:shades:

    *Slow for a missile. It would be silly if they were slower than any unit.
    It's not about out-running the missile, it's about trying to get as close as possible to enemy units before the missile hits you.

    And if there are no enemy units around? Or they're outnumbered greatly?
    Then the missile will pretty much devastate just your forces.
    And outrunning it isn't really an option, as it moves about the same speed as units, but ignores pathing. So it'll catch up eventually.

    Eh... yes? There are times where an ability has to be actually beneficial for you, no?
    It's the same like Psi Storm for example, the outcome differs greatly, depending on when and where you use it. That's why I wouldn't call the ability "cheap".

    I haven't played Starcraft before, so I'm assuming all of this from a Warcraft-ish point of view. A bomb that takes out an army wouldn't be accepted there. Though I have heard units are much cheaper in Starcraft.

    The guy seems to be using that missile an awful lot, which means it's obviously not very expensive. And when it's used, it pretty much wipes out an entire army.
    I think it's too cheap, or too powerful.
    They did say it was only added two weeks ago as well. :rolleyes:

    The idea is that it dies out pretty fast, so the nighthawks have to get pretty close before they can be that effective. So, just kill the nighthawks, one seeker isn't worth their cost.
