I think it's going to be something like this:

No, it's a terran multiplayer unit. Currently they think of adding 1 more unit to each race.

Avoid, if at all possible.
It looks like an evolved version of a hellion. Since it's clearly no bio unit, it might be something tier 2ish to assist mech?

thats a terran unit and not zerg? WTF? it looks like something that gives birth to larvae... and has a hard exoskeleton... is it a tamed zerg?

The top one is the terran one and the other one is the zerg one.

armored baneling xD
thats actually what it looks like but i dont think all its going to be is just an armoured baneling. from the looks of it itll move the same way and has the same leg structure, but that armour doesnt look like itd allow and storage for explosive green goo. sort of reminds me of that bug that rolls up into a defensive ball. although not as creepy as a bug.
i want one instead of a turtle :>

Which just now made me think after posting this... maybe a non-offensive, but a defensive unit that works as a better defense for ur hydras and festers than ling/roach?

Divide et impera
it's a bane-ling catapult - can target air/ground, and comes out of the roach warren, and may require a partial burrow/siege mode in order to fire

When Zerg floweth, life is good
While the front part clearly looks like a Lurker, that... ehm, "backpack" is more like... a former Siege Tank?

Zerg gameplay are already revolving too much around roach usage, and roaches already got 2 types of upgrades. And take a look at those head and arms, doesn't they remind of Hydralisk ones? Wouldn't it be possible that this is some kind of evolved Hydralisk? Also, this might be some kind of compromise, people want lurkers back but Blizzard doesn't want to use old Brood War units.

To be honest when i play zerg i barely use roaches. They are not cost-effective in my opinion. Lings, Banelings, Mutalisks, Infestors, Broodlords and Ultralisks are more likely to be used by me.
I agree, that it will hardly be a roach evolution since the roaches are already pretty far evolved with high regen, move while burrowed and the speed upgrade. Hydras are rarely used in pro-level games and might get a boost therefor.
But i would really like some more early game anti-air. (yes, there are queens but you wont ever use them to attack.)

    You would probably have to take a loan to get the Rice cert it is like 14l

    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.

    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.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    My daughter just got back from school at Georgetown TX, outside of Austin and said there were 100 cases in the last week but she also said nobody was wearing a mask anywhere so people mask up and stay safe!
