Heart of the Swarm New Unit Details-Zerg-Swarm Host14

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.

  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    How far back were you looking at?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    But yes, that was me.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Do you think I am looking back in the forums for this stuff? LOL, no, I find these posts in the Members Online section or the stats - all these old posts I am bumping and moving around are what people are actually looking at on the website
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Interesting.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    hey Tom your Burrito news is going viral by TheHelper.net standards LOL

  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am going to do one more News Forum like the Weird News but this one is Science News for all the cool science and technology articles in the Archive
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Hmm, do I need to start posting some of the Science and Technology news to this new section in the future?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Or do we need to move the news to their respective sections once the threads are old enough, read to be put into the News Archive?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    The 2nd thing
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I have been moving stuff from the current Headline news like a year old and stuff over when I see it in the logs or members online but mostly I have been moving stuff from the Archives
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It is possible to automate it so that instead of moving to Archive if it has the Science, technology or sci tech tag that it gets archived there instead. I am considering a new Weird News Tag
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Please do. I'll try to tag the news appropriately when I get the chance.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    The new Discourse forum software we are moving to next does alot with the tags and also hashtags
  • The Helper The Helper:
    OK I found the source of your burrito post stuff it is from Reddit and possibly a facebook post too but definitely reddit
