In my honest opinion, I like this new design. I've never personally played Brood War, but this new design seems less bulky and more efficient. The spreading legs, in my opinion, look way cooler than simply having stabilizers, giving the tank a more "fortified turret" look. The cannons never struck me as odd... I'd assume the siege shells would need an expanded barrel anyways.
The transformation is a pleasing aesthetic, also.
On the argument that Terrans can't have advanced so quickly in the given amount of time, keep in mind that humans are advancing far faster than one would think, and I believe that that accelerated progress will only increase with the rise in understanding and technology. Long story short, it may be that the farther along you are, the faster you move on the scale of technological progress. I mean, it's not even that big of a change to the siege tank. Just some polished metal, and improved treads and cannons.
I agree with the OP in that the Siege Tank is a joke in terms of damage.
I even say this as a Zerg player. When I see a Terran massing tanks I think "Oh, free win!" I can't count how many pro matches I've seen where an army supported by tanks is roflstomped by straight up MARINES.
I know this isn't BW but come on... artillery vs. marines and marines win. We've all seen pro matches where Terran just masses straight bio and rips through mech like it's going out of style. Terran is more like Zerg now and it's kinda lame in my opinion. Siege tanks are just so weak they're laughable.
I don't mind how they look but it is disappointing that what used to be the powerhouse of the Terran army is now a pea-shooter and can be completely shut down by tier 1 tech.
It'd be nice if HotS had better upgrades for tanks, or a "super-tank" unit that was expensive as hell but actually did something.
Again, my main is Zerg - this isn't bias talking. It's just sad to see such an awesome unit so gimped.
^This. This I want. I recently switched from Zerg to toss, but even as a different race, I want the old hydras back. At the very least give them a speed upgrade. Also, I want lurkers and reavers back =P
