Re: Starcraft 2 : The Dune II Clone

Infestors are, at the current state pretty overpowered. The question to me is more how to nerf them, than if to nerf them. NP nerf is not a bad choice, though personally I might have been satisfied with flying massive, or just giving mothership immunity to NP. Like being able to easily completely ru...

Re: Starcraft 2 : The Dune II Clone

Infestors are hilariously fun against non-mech Terran. Well, they're still fun against non-mech, but it's not as much fun gooping tanks as it is gooping 30 marines and watching them all explode simultaneously. You really should not be gooping tanks, what you should do is burrow and throw some infes...

Immortals. Cost less and are produced faster.
