I only used Wraiths once. Ever.
In Shatter the Sky, I clicked on the Leviathan to see if it was a Detector.
I didn't see the little eyeball symbol, so I made 8 Wraiths to kill it quickly.
To my surprise, it ATTACKED, even without using Bio-Stasis.
So even the one time I used them, THEY FAILED.
Been going through the campaign again and the most useless unit award goes to..........................................................................
Seriously, they can't even fight. Have you ever tried an SCV ball with medics? Complete fail.

Hellions are an awesome replacement to Vultures. But vultures themselves were just as useless.
But srsly, what the ..... is a predator? I saw the portrait and kinda convinced myself it was the seeker missile that ravens use. (since I never used ravens in the campaign, and don't play T in MP)
In the campaign, I NEVER USED FIREBATS.
NOT ONCE did I build ANY.
Wraiths aren't sad but seriously they are just so fail...
Hellions <<<<< Vultures.
PREDATORS ARE NOT FAIL, BUT THEY SUCK EXCEPT IN THE MISSION WHERE YOU GET VIKINGS AND FIGHT THE INFESTED AND EVERY INFESTED MISSION.
Medics ARE SO AWESOME THEY DON'T NEED ANYTHING.
Hercules ships are epic. See the liquipedia on the campaign for more reasons why i think that.
Campaign only units that suck:
Firebat. Wraith. Predator(In comp. to Hercules). Raven(In comp. to SV)[Yes, this counts.].
Spectres are... unique. I prefer ghosts, due to the Cirius suit(SP?)
Wraith costs 150/150, just like a diamond back(which doesn't suck, but it costs 150/150/4 and deals 20 + 20 to armored!!)
Burst Lasers fail at lifeee. 5 wraiths VS BC... Dead BC!
From least worthless to most worthlessI actually used diamond backs alot, they are great because they were fast and they could attack while they moved. They also did alot of damage.
Kerrigan kills EVERYTHING in one hit. That's not a good litmus test.
You're missing the point, specifically, the point defense drone, which stops Kerrigan's damage outright. Drop PDDs, roll in banshees, blow her away.
Just because the Raven is a choice on countering Kerrigan 4-5 times in one mission out of 29 doesn't make it superior.
PDDs stop just about every ranged attack. Everything that might threaten your battlecruiser mob is countered by 1 spell.
Science vessels are useful to healing a mech army in pretty much every mission. Just because the Raven is a choice on countering Kerrigan 4-5 times in one mission out of 29 doesn't make it superior. Maw of the Void has no time limit, but it does have a hard resource cap, you have one expansion, whatever you get from your starting base, and the minerals and gas you can pickup from the platforms. That's it.
In any mission withOUT rip fields in it, you can just haul a few SCVs in a Medivac for your repair needs. Sounds like you're the one with the one mission winner choice. Also, in a game with resource limits, I'd think that the ability to spam free auto-turrets and seeker missles might have appeal.

Scv's cost money to repair. It also costs your economy to pull workers off the line. Scv's get targeted first on brutal, whereas a SV can sit in the back and heal for free.
Honestly, Kerrigan is nullified on brutal all-in with a cheap pack of marines/medics. There's no need for PPD to stop her. But hey, we each have a strat, and if it works it works.
As for the most useless units...I never even built a predator. There's units that do its job better and cheaper. Wraiths are way too expensive for what they bring to the table. Viking/banshee is better. Cloak is also pretty useless on brutal with the amount of detection.
Threats of violence. We take these seriously and will alert the proper authorities.
