Background:
The Swarm Host has no weapons of its own, but can represent an army unto itself. Generated by the Infestation Pit, it spawns parasitic symbiotes known as locusts, which attack any nearby enemies with volleys of acidic saliva. This crawling monstrosity burrows into the ground in order to provide a seemingly endless supply of ferocious biological minions, and is often used in defensive maneuvers. This lack of mobility can leave the Swarm Host vulnerable to quicker enemies with area damage like the Hellion.

I dont like it. I dont like the broodlord too.
It messes with the units AI and makes the game rather boring then entertaining.

It messes with the units AI
isn't that what force fields, workers holding position, zerglings holding position, workers going to mineral patches, ultras pushing lings away, etc. do? actually, doesn't anything other than a direct A-move command mess with the units AI?

Force fields and workers holding positions are designed that way. Its micro intensive.
The only use for force fields is to mess up the pathing of units and cut their retreat route or block them from entering.
But broodlords are supposed to be the zergs siege unit equivalent, they are supposed to deal high damage. There is not much micro needed, you just put them somewhere and they create and endless stream of broodlings. Its cheap in my opinion.

    My grandmother just passed away, she was 95. I might be going to Florida for a week.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I have a buddy in Florida who has an extra office space for me with a computer so I can do anything so likely I will be going up there wednesday or thursday
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Let me know if there's anything I can do to help.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    thank you Ghan
  • jonas jonas:
    Sorry for your loss

  • Varine Varine:
    I'm sorry to hear that bro
  • Varine Varine:
    Not to distract but is anyone aware of any software to help visually impaired people interact with their PC?
  • Varine Varine:
    Also what's the best way to ship a PC? Should I just wrap the fuck out of it in the case or put the components in static bags and wrapped up individually?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    The GPU is the biggest danger typically.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Some of the pre-built vendors use expanding foam to fill in the case and secure the GPU. Otherwise it might be best to remove it and ship it separately.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Similar if the machine has a large tower CPU cooler installed. Those can experience huge forces and destroy the socket during shipment if they are heavy.
  • Varine Varine:
    So mainly just the heavier things that jut out? I'm planning on pulling out the SSD's too and anything that I don't have well secured. I'll probably be good leaving the motherboard and PSU screwed in there though if I bundle it up?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Yeah, I'd expect those to be fine. It's mainly the heavy stuff that is also long/tall where dropping the case would cause it to exert a ton of force on the mount. The motherboard will be fine screwed into the board unless the case itself is somehow severely damaged.
  • Varine Varine:
    I have the original packaging for it, so I was going to just put it back in there
  • Varine Varine:
    I don't think I have the boxes for the components though and so I don't want to have a bunch of loose shit bouncing around
  • The Helper The Helper:
    damn I just read that lol
  • The Helper The Helper:
    when i read up and saw spray in foam I was like oh shit
  • The Helper The Helper:
    going to do the last controller giveaway in the NUON Dome forum because I just cannot sell them since I got them for free from a deceased NUON Legend. It is my last one from that.
