Hydra morph to Swarm Host with buff?

Posts: 57
How about a Hydra den building upgrade that allows for the Hydra to morph into a swarm host that attacks both ground and air? I feel like this would completely change the zerg late game options.

I don't undestand how a small Hydralisk could turn into a huge Swarmhost.

similar to how a lil bitty larvae morphs into an ultralisk.

We would get lurkers back before we got this sort of unit. Id like to see hydras buffed just like every zerg but this would probably be op as heck

wouldn't that be more of a nerf then a buff? since ur making them take longer to morph due to hydra production time and u need an extra building.

But they're getting a buff to both air and ground. I support this because i miss the lurker and I agree it would make hydras a better unit/ more of an incentive to get them.

WAIT

Actually how about we make it so SH morph from hydras and buff both of them slightly. This way hydras will see usage. OMG OP is genius.

I think zerg needs to be more aggressive and less hive end game.

Zergs are agressive, it's just that terrans and toss get such good turtling abilities that breaking terrans and toss is very hard for zerg. Ever heard of baneling busts? The ling/bane bust? The roach bling ling bust? or 12 minute roach maxout?

baneling drops? the baneling with roach ol drop? ling backstabs?

lolol zergs use all of these. It's just that what happens afterwards, the terran just continually streams rine out of his rax and mops up the ling flood. Or toss warps in some sentries and ff ramp and zerg has to retreat.

This. There's little variety in strat because players play to win, and with this limited 1-of-3 game, these strats bring in the wins.

For both sides.
