Morphling Wars - New simplistic take on arena

Morphling Wars:

Morphling wars is an arena FFA map where your hero can change into 10 different SC2 units. No wierd, custom abilities. just straight up SC2 units. The object of the game is to kill your opponent by constantly changing your unit to counter your opponent, then change into another unit to counter your opponent's counter and so on.

For example:
You see a stalker so you change into an immortal.
Your opponent counters and changes into a zealot.
You respond by changing into a ghost and chain snipe the zealot.
Your opponent reacts by changing into a High Templar and feedbacks your Ghost.
This can go on forever, until one loses or runs away.
Sometimes you may encounter more than one enemy, in this case things can get confusing. You can use spell casters like the Raven or Sentry to throw your enemies off and turn the tide of battle.

Here is a list of all the units, you can instantly change into:
Zealot
Stalker
Immortal
Dark Templar
Raven
Viking
Ghost
High Templar
Battlecruiser
Roach

***In order to play this game you have to create a private game; the orange join game button seems to get stuck on "waiting for players", i don't know why.

***This game is hosted in the NA servers, join channel 'mw' if you would like to play a game of morphling wars with me!

***Although this game can be played with 2+ players i would recommend to have at least 4, as it can be quite boring with only 2.

-If you like the game please rate it in the arcade reviews, it would really help me out.
Thanks.

This sounds interesting!

I can definitely see it become very micro intensive, but there are some things that worry me.

I feel like dark templar is going to be very powerful if there's no other way of detecting your enemy. The only way to see/damage a dark templar with those units are with a raven, ghost's emp or High Templar's Psi Storm.

Sure, there are counters, but they feel very hard compared to using the dark templar.

How will you manage the energy?

The Zealot feels pretty weak. I would rather use a dark templar to counter the immortal.

Other than that, it's a good idea and I'll try it out for sure.

I think the reason for the "waiting for players" problem is something about an option related to lobbies when you publish it.

Don't worry Siretu! There are no cloaked units in my game, any unit can see the dark templar and any unit can see a burrowed roach. As for the energy, units will not regenerate energy unless you are using that specific unit. However, energy regenerates about 10 times quicker.

I have also balanced out the units so a tier 1 zealot can fight on par with a tier 2 dark templar. A zealot would be a better counter to the immortal because it has hardened shields(which can also be EMP'd), with the zealots fast attack speed and low damage it can take the shields out quickly. The dark templar however, is a high damage unit and low attack speed.

The purpose of the dark templar is that it most damage in the game but its also the slowest unit in the game. Morphing into this unit after using zealot charge or blink is a great combo. By combining different unit abilities together you can be creative with counters other than relaying on hard counters.

Its also not as micro-intensive as you might think, the most micro required is shoot and scoot. All this game requires is that you simply have a general understanding of SC2 unit counters in a normal game, and if you don't you can always check out the tips!

***I've also solved the 'waiting for players' problem yesterday, it was an option in the arcade info.

    You would probably have to take a loan to get the Rice cert it is like 14l
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I was hoping you were going to say you wanted to be a cook and wished to open up a Food Truck there are so many opportunities for that here
  • The Helper The Helper:
    you can only open the bar if you sell food and a food truck in the parking lot counts
  • The Helper The Helper:
    here in houston
  • The Helper The Helper:
    most bars are struggling to build food prep and even some I know are doing there own food trucks
  • The Helper The Helper:
    but yeah man you should come to Houston there is so much more opportunity here than San Antonio. Just look at all the homeless people on the Riverwalk and downtown there you cannot even walk down the street without getting mobbed them
  • The Helper The Helper:
    check out this place apparently it is the best roommate site out there roommates.com lol
  • Varine Varine:
    The homeless people reminded me of New York
  • Varine Varine:
    I'll check it out, my lease expires in like a few months so I need to figure something out.
  • Varine Varine:
    I tried to open a food truck in Sandpoint a few years ago but the city said no, then like two years later they passed new laws to encourage it and gave them all fucking tax breaks and shit. And at that point I didn't have enough money to go buy one so I was way too late to the game once other cities realized they could just bring their existing truck there, or sell their brick and mortar.
  • Varine Varine:
    I do like food trucks though, they're way more fun than restaurants and usually I also get some of that tip money there.
  • Varine Varine:
    Restaurants are really hard if you don't have a back up source of income to fund them sometimes, in my experience most owners either got really really lucky, had existing money that allowed them to buy an already successful one, or they have family money to fall back on for loans. It's few and far between to see very inspiring success stories where the person actually got it through hard work and perseverance. I thought about opening one lots and I always just end up not thinking it'll work. I would much rather just find someone that has that money and go work for them
  • The Helper The Helper:
    i am not talking about opening a brick and mortar I am talking about food trucks though I have seen some brick and mortar mexican places open up during covid that are doing good because there food is awesome!
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Food trucks are killing out here because Bars cannot open unless they sell food and the governor ok'd the use of a food truck in front as serving food
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Just not enough food trucks
  • The Helper The Helper:
    a buddy of mine just opened up a food truck and he is killing it but he is a great cook and has awesome food right in the middle of the pandemic too food trucks are immune to pandemic because they are take out in Texas you will always be able to get take out or delivery
  • The Helper The Helper:
    He is in the different food facebook groups in houston and posts videos of him making his food
  • The Helper The Helper:
    he is killing it
  • jonas jonas:
    @Varine with the restaurants, there surely is a lot of luck and hard work but most restaurants fail because they suck. Flair isn't right, economics not well thought through, food is mediocre or sucks, location is bad, etc. If you're thinking about opening one, make sure you're looking at the stories of those that would be playing at your level, don't let your hopes be dragged down by all the subpar restaurants out there.
  • jonas jonas:
    I'm a bit worried about the future of data science, there's an influx of incompetent people hired by incompetent managers, that can't last. But I'm sure smart data scientists will always be useful and hireable. Same as smart security people.
  • jonas jonas:
    My sister in law worked in a vegan food truck, the owners were also making a killing, added several trucks and opened two restaurants over 5 years
  • Ghan Ghan:
    The CompTIA stuff is pretty much crap unfortunately. The places that ask for those low-level certs aren't likely places you want to work. For IT you really want a degree, but in the meantime you need to figure out some way to learn the skills. Cybersecurity is really hot right now so competition is fierce.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I realized I don't have anything much to say, other than "Good luck!". Compared to other places, I'm just very lucky we didn't have a lot of surges of cases coming in.
