Zerg Discussion
Anyone else miss the lurker?
YES
Im sure the lurker will be in the Zerg Campaign at least.... Ugh I'm so impatient when it comes to waiting for HOTS.... Zerg will always be my favorite race.

Not the lurker I used to know... This lurker is weird. It looks like a dinosaur experiment gone wrong. The old lurker looked way way better, and its attack was faster.
Maybe this was the original swarm host? :)
I miss the defiler way more.

I and others have used the lurker addon thats out there to add lurkers to several maps. Go to arcade, search lurker and you should see them.
The Lurker is way better than the Swarm Host. It was almost essential in Brood War at Liar tech. It actually gave you a defender's bonus which Zerg doesn't have right now.
RIP lurkers, defilers, guardians...

long live infestors, vipers, and brood lords!

(but here's a fun question: who actually misses the old SC1 queens? dat spawn broodlings...)
Me! Me! Me!
I loved being able to instantly kill tanks and nurses and dragoons and lurkers and drones and scvs.
I loved parasite. I would try to kill all but one nurse and then parasite her.
Ensnare not so much as I would save energy for spawn broodings.
I loved Lurkers and they were definitely better than Spine Crawlers, they were an effective defense against tanks walking in on you among other things.

Spine crawlers are mostly an expensive delaying tactic rather than a practical defense, but they aren't counted against your population limit at least.

They would definitely help against Thors.
Sort of coming back #Swarm Host :P
I miss all the sc1 and BW units zerg and nonzerg alike!
YES PETITION TO CHANGE SH GARBAGE FOR LURKER.
