that's sort of what i'm saying though, in brood war you HAD to split tanks to maximize damage because otherwise they would all unload on the same target

except they still do the reduced damage due to smartfire which was made to help clusters of tanks

so tanks are effectively neutered even more by a shitty anti-micro gimmick unit

vipers encourage smarter terran play, tanks do enough damage . tvp is another problem entirely

maybe the pulling spell is anti-micro but blinding cloud actually forces you to micro rather than not. units that you don't micro out of the cloud will become useless. it's like calling banelings an anti-micro unit.

you don't even need vikings, vipers are extremely fragile and you're lucky to get away with half of them still alive in a major battle
