Yep, kinda like the Goliath... only with better speed and mobility.

the warhound is simply meant to fulfill LESS of a multi-purpose role than the thor (blizzard) but fulfill it's main purpose (light air splash) better

to those of you saying the warhound is less mobile than the thor: you are dense. the unit size is (according to blizzard) smaller than that of the thor - helping it save your !@# as it trudges through your maze-of-a-base-buildings to get to the mineral line and %%## some mutalisks.

Beta hasn't started yet.


So just because someone makes a smartass comment "Beta hasn't started" we should just shut up and not say our own opinions? God forbid someone actually says something about an idea before it hits beta.


Calm down bro. I'm just saying my opinion. Or is that against your thoughts????

Personally, I think the Idea behing it could be interesting... but the visual aspect really suck.
I mean, even if on paper it's pretty much like if they were bringing back the Goliath, they should make the unit looks more '' Terran'' not Mechwarrior ...

When you take two min to look how refined and badass the Marine Armor is, you could not imagine they would use let such an ugly concept be in the game...

And for the flame buggy, come on, bring back the Firebat( more HP and damage) and everybody will be happy.

I like the game, I'm crititicising the Artistic side more than the gaming aspect.

My two cents.

they want a smaller thor and blizzard WANTS to keep this game fresh by not adding in old units. Sure they add old units to campaign but when it comes to MP blizz wants to keep things fresh and thats why a lot of BW units are being remade but in different ways (think of viper/defiler and swarm host/lurker).

Or they just ran out of ideas, realized that the majority of the sc2 player base is new to the franchise, and that they could get away with recycling old units in new skins.

Sounds like a great time to chime in with my in experienced opinion ! The Valkyrie may have been there original replacement for the Goliath.The Goliath was well verse but didn't pack enough punch with out numbers.Is that not the the Valkyries roll in SCII? but the are lil more complex and even more diverse.

Oh and BTW bro i kinda miss them as well.

Actually the infestor is better than the defiler and the vulture just plain useless crap. Firebats just aren't worth it, because of the short range.

Have you played with the Warhound? It is big, expensive, and serves a purpose far different than that of the goliath. It is the highest tech, and was solely meant to be more mobile than the thor to take out harrassing mutas, and it also had an anti-mech attack. Think about the lore:
Terran: Dang! This thor sounded like a good idea at the time, but @#$%, these mutalisks are just to quick! Let's make something to chase them down a little better!
It makes perfect sense, meant for late-game mass mutas (like the tempest) if you don't want them then DON'T MAKE THEM!
Watch the clips of them- they are awesome, op, but they will be balanced! Think of how many changes the thor went through. It went through at LEAST 2 major size decreases, it's abilities and attacks changed drastically too.
CALM DOWN, Blizzard knows what they are doing, they've been doing it longer than you :)
And the Warhound, like many of these new units, were made (mostly) to fill gaps that the professional players were finding. Why the tempest? because in pro late-game, the toss just did not have the aoe vs. mass mutas (as in 50-100) that the zerg could pop out in no time.
Besides, if there's a bone to pick about bad units... pick the battle hellion. I understand it's need, and why they didn't implement the firebat again... I just don't understand how transforming it gives it more hp or armor or whatever they said it gained. THAT doesn't make sense.

I can understand your point and the fact on paper, gaming experience.
I just wan't to bring the point that the Unit is ugly as hell.

The concept could be a good idea, just the visual aspect...
I kinda think I'm not the only one who think this way... man I'm actually wasting my time writing on this forum because I hope Blizzard won't keep the ugly Unit this way for their final version.

Still, I like the game, just that I don't think the warhound should pass the usual Starcraft visual quality stamp of approval.

all abilities and stats aside , personally i think the actual designs of these new units are garbage. I feel like a four year old could come up with some ideas that look cooler. the shredder looks a like a robotic rip off of the swarm host with its four legs and big !@#. are you telling me that they couldn't come up with anything else? and the warhound is an abomination dumb little shield on one arm top heavy scrony legged mech, reminds me of those action figures i had as a kid, that if you didn't have there legs straight and place them on a completely level surface they would always fall over. battle hellion....ffs I don't even know were to start with this, another transformer. whats next Micheal Bay making the hots cinematics. i could go on about how similar all the protoss designs are, but i'd be raging way to hard, the only neat one was the viper for zerg
