Nexus war - Scourge too op?

Posts: 505
I have played more than 500 games and I think scourge is too op at it current state. It needs to have a hard counter like any other unit. At the moment you can just mass scourge against any air unit and win without any decision or risk involved. I think scourge is taking some of the fun out of the game.

Scourge are pretty op in the air...that I agree upon. But, it can be beaten.

If you are playing Zerg (or are good enough that you tech switch) you can just counter with Scourge, non-sync'd. You can make roughly 1/2 what your opponent does and straight counter their massed Scourge units.

Another method is to just stay out of the personal preferrence if I see Zerg on the opposite side of the map. Any and all Scourge they make are then wasted. If by some chance you are worried about a huge buildup of Scourge over your Nexus screwing up the other lane's air units, if you happen to mass Archons they will hit them with their Immolation ability as they pass by even if they are engaging other units.

Scourge are not taking fun out of the game...they are making people adapt. Do so or Darwin out, mate.
