Comprehensive Building Page?

The only thing that I have been waiting for is a building page that explicitly descibes what each building does, what it can research, how it is built, where it can be built (creep vs pylon zone vs anywhere), how many hitpoints and armor, shields, etc. etc....

Websites [pictures] are worth a thousand forum threads...so let me show you want I want from the old school:


http://classic.battle.net/scc/terran/bbuild.shtml

http://classic.battle.net/scc/protoss/bbuild.shtml

http://classic.battle.net/scc/zerg/bbuild.shtml



And yeah, yeah, so we have an SC2 building-tree that shows what each building allows, but where's the detail for each and every building???

And don't worry, I know the school of thought that goes something like this: Why don't you just play the game to find out on your own what everything does? Besides, if we leak too much detail, then too many people might become experts and we certainly have way too many of those already. PLAY THE GAME TO FIND OUT, or go create your own thread/or website that has all of this, to your own competitive edge's detrimate.

Well, this argument holds NO WATER for me...I am a reference book type, I like to look things up, and I also don't care to be author of reference books. And obviously Blizzard has been capable in the past of publishing detailed information of their buildings before (above CLASSIC website links)

An excuse like, "Sorry we just have not gotten to it yet" will actually suffice to me. At least they are acknowledging it.

Aye. I tend to agree with you. We got the unit information so why not a building one? I am the type of guy to read all sorts of random information just for kicks. I would know to know the HP and armor different between a CC and a PF. A Hatch and Hive, etc. More information is better.

Use http://wiki.teamliquid.net/starcraft2/ or http://starcraft.wikia.com/wiki/
Since blizzard doesn't have one, those are what I use for all sorts of things.

You might be able to find a page on google.

I'm sometimes amazed at the things people will whine about. The info you are after is SO easy to find. You are one Google search away from full details on any unit or building in the game. If you want the tech tree from the official source, here:

http://us.battle.net/sc2/en/game/race/terran/techtree

http://us.battle.net/sc2/en/game/race/protoss/techtree

http://us.battle.net/sc2/en/game/race/zerg/techtree

Not good enough for you because you can't click on one to get more details? Just google it for crying out loud instead of whining about it. For example if you want info about the spore crawler you just google "starcraft sore crawler" and click on the link for wiki.teamliquid.net or for starcraft.wikia.com and you'll be fine. Like this:

Thank you, would-be voice of Blizzarrd--[thank goodness that you are not]. You carry my point even further. Would Blizzard say something like "we don't publish much additional info, because we rely on Google and other sources to provide all of the detail about a game that we wrote." Most likely not...

I don't want to be a voice for blizzard. I'm not even sure what that means.

I'm just annoyed when people complain about things that don't need fixing. That info is so readily available that you could have found it faster than it took you to make this thread.

Some people just like to complain I guess.
