Medivacs should cost 150 gas

Medivacs- Downside; They cost gas. Upside;They Heal

Warp Prism- Downside; Less units it can carry. Upside; You can warp in as much as you want

Overlord- Upside; No Supply and can drop creep. Downside; Requires upgraded to move fast and drop

for every downside that a unit has, it has something positive to make up for it, look at the rest of the game before you pinpoint one unit


Neither Warp Prisms' nor Overlords' secondary effects are anywhere near as powerful as the healing which Medivacs have.

But this is why Medivacs cost 100 gas.

The price of Medivacs is appropriate; it should not be increased.

Good idea.

And while we're at it lets increase the cost of infestors to 300 gas because they're a little too good. Oh wait they're fine as they are? Well so are medivacs.


Are they too good? They are a support unit for zerg just like the medivac is for terran so by your logic the medivac should cost 150 gas too.

Sounds like a pretty bad idea, bro.

Shadowmatrix, have you tried playing Terran? TvZ is the most balanced matchup right now statistically, so it's going to be hard to convince anyone that medivacs are imba an eed to be changed. You'll need more than some anecdotal evidence from Destiny, who is one of the most juvenile of pros. For example, anytime he loses on stream he pulls out some offensive and immature comment about the "special olympics" or "autistic children" before quitting, instead of gg'ing.

medevac drops are not imba, get mutas or defensive blings or map control or put down spores or put down spines or fungal the medevac in air and infested terran it down. If drops are imba than how many counter options do you need?

Okay lets put things into perspective here, I was listening to Destiny's stream and him dropping the knowledge bomb about the risk reward aspects of this game and that terran easily has the highest reward and lowest risk involved whether its marine drops or blue flame hellions killing 50 drones in 1 shot.


Well Stephano says that Zerg is favored in ZvP. So we better nerf Zerg, right?

Warp prisms only cost minerals.


Compared to Terran, Protoss risks 50% more resources doing a drop and their drops only do half the dps. Thats why warp prisms are hardly ever used even after they were buffed.

Medivac + 8 marines = 80 dps and only costs 500/100
Warp Prism + 4 stalkers = 40 dps and costs 700/200 (stalkers are the closest unit protoss has to marines)

And yeah you could drop zealots, but zealots are terrible at killing workers since they still move slower than workers even after their speed is upgraded. The only unit protoss has that has a chance of offing some workers are Stalkers.

well to be fair stephano is much better than destiny and opinion holds credit also unlike destiny he says his own race is better than another while destiny is complaining that another one is op honestly right now the game is the most balanced it's been in a while. The only thing I don't like is that in leagues below masters it's harder to defend vs mass muta as toss that it is to use it bit really that isn't really a balance issue and in hots it probally won't even be true anymore
