If only siege lines were that easy to break every time.....

Pretty cool though, especially the terran stuff

There's also this trailer, it's mostly things that have been seen before though

FUCK

This looks amazing, but am I the only one who thinks that the writing is super cheesy and generic in that trailer/opening?

not any more cheesy than the entire script of WoL

WoL had some good cinematics too... it was just everything else that made you feel stupid for playing it.

Hello everyone,

We're thinking on a few changes and wanted to get your thoughts as well. Please remember none of these are final.


Overlord speed upgrade moved down to tier 1

HotS has given a lot more tech options to all three races, and we feel scouting is more important than ever. Terran/Protoss already got their scouting buffs, and we felt Zerg could use one too. Keep in mind this isn't as crazy as it sounds because you still need to spend the extra 100/100 resources as well as 100 seconds to get this upgrade in tier 1.


Spore buff vs. bio (maybe 15 +15bio)
Fungal missile speed down a bit more


We think in ZvZ Mutalisks are a bit too dominant right now.We're realizing the Fungal Growth nerf was too much vs. Mutas and potentially not enough vs. other units.

Therefore, we think a +bio buff to Spores will only mostly affect Mutalisks to make room for ground based strategies in ZvZ. And we're hoping this gives us more room to nerf Fungal Growth a bit more. We feel units like Mutalisks, Hydralisks, or Ultralisks received significant buffs in Heart of the Swarm that it's probably ok to tone down the Infestor a bit more.


Oracle Envision duration increased from 30 seconds to 60 seconds

This one is to make this spell a bit more viable.

I'll happily take that overlord speed change, but I'm skeptical that any of these will really have much of a change on gameplay

That's still nothing compared to the Starcraft Ghost cinematic. That must have been written by a ten year old. Also those marine suits were just retarded. Thank god that game got canned.

As some one who actually got to play an early build of SC ghost, I have to say the multiplayer at the least was quite fun. Might be lame by today's standards, that was forever ago

i loved those marine suits though

i mean look at it this way, sure it was goofy

but it was CONSISTENTLY goofy, like the old SC1 cinematics

WoL, in comparison, had a lot of very serious cutscenes while the average mission dialogue was unintentionally bad

it wasn't so bad it was funny either, it just made you feel ashamed that you were actually playing it
