Silly bronzy, not being afraid of more dangerous things.

I thought we were going with the assumption that both were equally dangerous.

why would intimidation matter if you are going against an opponent that fear doesn't matter to?

Terrans can't feel fear? Since when?

honestly don't think that zerg is so pressed on bio mass that adding spikes cuts into their army supply.

They can feel fear, but which units that are close enough to see said spikes matter to a terran dominion?

they aren't pressed on crap, they are just looking to streamline things and cut costs

Anything the lings decide to attack? Being melee units and everything.

So we are operating under the assumption that while being mauled to death these marines are taking detailed anatomical notes about the zergling's ubiquitous and unnecessary "intimidation" features?

Okay. So the argument that you are making is that visual appearance of it has no effect on how much you'd fear it. And how afraid people of it are en mass, has no effect militarily.
That it could look like a giant pink Easter bunny so long it was just as good at killing things you would have an equal level of fear to that ling as opposed to this

You are arguing that in the past the use of visual intimidation has given no military value to the forces using it. That inflicting fear on your enemy makes no difference in their ability to fight as individuals and as a group.
That is the argument you are making.

In essence, yes. The marines are going to fire the same amount of the same bullets regardless of spikes.

Oh the facepalm, Fonzy, shall we post some of your derpier comments from last night? how about they don't need more lings. They can't support more lings. They amount of biomass isn't important. Remember these? You have no right to facepalm.

I was saying why waste bio mass on lings that they doesn't need, and that using every once of bio mass to create as many units as possible isn't practical or sustainable.
You are the one making the argument that by having spikes they have a weaker military. That fear has no influence in combat or warfare, and that it isn't possible for the zerg to over produce because they will just kill off the excess units, which they didn't need, and now have to kill, because they are excess, and a drain on the swarm.

Some pretty derpy points right there.

And my answer is it makes the zerg look scarier and fear is a useful weapon in warfare, even though you think otherwise, that being terrified of this thing charging at you that looks like a beast out of hell would have no effect on a persons performance in battle, history and military tactitions would beg to differ.
Therefore the spikes are not a waste of bio mass, they serve a purpose.

Fonzy, where in nature do you see these intimidation spikes? Seriously. The chance of intimidation is not as valuable as having more killing machines. They intimidate things by having tons of them and being viscous. If you disagree, show me where in nature i'm wrong.
