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?

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.)

    thanks for the tip, that sounds cool. Never heard about the VCS before but seems like it should be a good match

    mostly failing at life through adulthood really demotivated me for a while

    Most people fail at life throughout their adulthood. Sometimes we get to learn from it. Usually it just feels like crap.

    Are we still on the topic of failing? I failed lots!
  • jonas jonas:
    If you ever want to talk about it we're here. The way I see it, you're still around. That required a few very difficult successes if you ask me:)
  • Varine Varine:
    I posted a thing here a while ago about my failures if it makes you feel better to hear about other people failing. Drugs and whatnot, I had a lot more fun than was healthy. I'm still a failure, but very few of us actually get to be the self made billionaire. Luck is the only thing that will take you as far as already having money a lot of the time, and the easiest way to get catch that is with a very wide net and the willingness to let other things loose.

    Have fun, do your best, something about Edison's light bulb not working until he stole it.
  • jonas jonas:
    Eh. Don't define success as being a billionaire or even millionaire. Success is about overcoming your personal challenges. And if you can get to a place in life where you can love yourself, that is winning it big time
  • jonas jonas:
    Being a billionaire probably sucks, you can't go out in public like a random person anymore and you always need a bunch of big guys following you around discreetly
  • jonas jonas:
    And you'll never know if anyone you know really likes you or is just seeing you as a big money sack
  • jonas jonas:
    Most of the best fun I've ever head was with a group of friends eating pizza or drinking a good 10$ bottle of wine, when I had maybe 100$ on my account. Or the time when I was so broke, my friends visited me with bags of ingredients and I cooked for us, because I didn't have money to buy ingredients anymore
  • jonas jonas:
    Or walking with my then-fiancee through the night until dawn, just talking

    UGHHH, I truly missed the GameStop frenzy that's happening for the past 2 weeks.

    I see someone invested $53K in $0.20/share, then get a 163000+% return of $43 million.
