    If you can get to that point, you deserve to have that many high powered units.

    Zerg works this way quite a bit. Many good players will send in workers or lower tiered units to die to free up supply so they can make more higher tiered units.

    Yes like protoss players were dashing for flux vanes upgrade. It was more for the late game and even then, it's way better to get carriers + ms than void upgrade. Not to mention late game 200/200 toss army is arguably the strongest (just a tad) over Terran & Zerg.

    Removal of the flux vanes is far from game breaking. And the pheonix buff was well needed for toss. And I can almost guarantee protoss players favor the pheonix buff over the FV removal.

    For me, 2 things are rather crucial with this new patch,

    1st, scvs moving more frequently while constructing structures is very nice.
    2nd, No longer being to block ramps w/ 2x2 structures is rather upsetting. Not entirely bad since you can use a pylon/forge or supply/engi bay.

    I just don't like the way blizzard balances certain things. They look at a certain strat which is ingenius and due to community feed back (which should never be taken into consideration) and decide to nerf/buff.

    For example, they think by buffing zerg you need to nerf Terran. This is completely the wrong way to make changes.

    All and all, they've done a pretty good job. Not to mention the custom hotkey FINALLY!!! So annoying pressing "P" for PF or "I" for pre-ignite upgrade not to mention "I" for immortals.

    You can add me to the list, I want to start playing online. How the hell do you find your user code? Something that damned important should be in plain sight. I can't get a few friends to add me because I don't know how to find the code.

    Will add you guys when I have time :/

    On the other hand, as most of you have pointed out, we have Patch 1.2.0!

    For UK people, there is a chance to earn €100!

    Also, allow me to initiate an argument which will most likely end with this thread being locked: Are maurauders imba?

    For a terran player like me, rauders is the bread and butter of a lot of terran armies, and its "just nice", not too strong, not weak either. Strong enough to hold off 4gate, weak enough to be beaten to pulp by most other units.

    I loved that. Id trade in 2 vrs for a fleet beacon + flux vane upgrade in large maps early on. Made it quite a good partner with phoenix micro.

    Don't ever underestimate the strength of marines, they might be soft and deal shitty dps, but in mass numbers and especially supported with drops etc, they can wreck major havoc.

    Oh they definately can. That's my point, theyre retardly strong. And actually they have one of the highest dps of units in the game.

    dps per food, probably after stim. That said, they have the third lowest health in the game, after zerglings and workers.

    Has anyone played the new custom games by Blizzard?

    http://us.battle.net/sc2/en/blog/2058906#blog

    Aiur Chef, StarJeweled, and Left 2 Die are three new custom games that are all individual.

    I played 5 minutes of Aiur Chef and that was enough, StarJeweled is a knock off of BeJeweled and I never played that anyways, and Left 2 Die is a L4D knock off/campain mission to fend off a base from infected terren/Zerg. At lease L2D is 2 player with multiple difficulty settings.

    I haven't played any of them yet myself. Honestly, I'm not too into the custom games yet. Saving them for when ladder bores me.

    If anyone wants to ease a noob in with 1vs1, I would appreciate it. I haven't played an RTS online since Brood War came out and TBH I know that I am going to get my ass kicked if I try to play with a stranger. At least a TPU member might not cuss me out for being a noob.
