well-microed mutas won't get caught by hydras either, you might as well spam spores and extra queens for transfuse

and hey at least they can kill overlords or something in ZvZ

mutas are always better. they're good at map control, denying expansions, harassing, and keeping your opponent in a frenzy trying to keep track of where they are and what they're doing. there's no reason to go corruptors over mutas

except to counter mutas because otherwise you need to out-muta the other guy which really just ends up being kind of stupid

also corruption isn't a bad ability though i agree corruptors need something else

but it's kind of like landing vikings "they can do this!" but they're kind of bad at it anyway

well that's what zvz ends up turning into in a macro game - having more of the same thing than the other guy.

New protoss unit looks sorta like a phoenix with a some sort of charge ability like voidray.




sorta underwhelming hopefully it is proved wrong.

Yeah I'm guessing some weird form of flyer, or a hovering ground siege weapon (like a reaver). A little harder to guess about than the other two though.

Blizzcon is actually pretty soon, so we shall be finding out then

A friend of mine thinks it looks like that flying thing batman has

Anyways, he had a few interesting ideas. Perhaps a flying siege unit? As in it charges up and then shoots something super powerful. Or perhaps something with a form of chain lightening attack?

in all seriousness it's probably their answer to the lack of variation in protoss stargate play. instead of refusing to fix the carrier, they're just gonna release a new stargate unit. hooray!

Blizzcon is a yearly event where Blizzard Entertainment showcases Diablo III: Heart of the Swarm and announces that another 5 levels will be added to World of Warcraft.

Why did the colossus fall over?


Because it was imbalanced.






(also blizzcon starts tomorrow so we should be hearing about these new units then)

i wonder if they're going to actually do unit reveals or just show the silhouettes again
