INC Terran nerf aka Widow mine

Posts: 450
I'm not a high level player but widow mine is too strong and this is coming from a die hard Terran fan/player. My TvZ is at almost 80% win rate and i go Bio/WM all the time. I'm able to beat ex master players like nothing...

TvP, not a big deal cause they got the oracles to counter

TvT is pretty tough....u need turret behind mineral line or waste a scan...not a big deal

all in all i think oracles/wm should be toned down a bit...any thoughts?

Haven't had problems with Widow Mine drops in TvT yet.

Haven't had any real success using Widow Mine drops in any matchup

Why did you make this thread? There are literally 30 widow mine threads you could have posted your opinion on. Im so tired of all the good threads just getting pushed down so people can create endless threads about the widow mine. Next time post on one of the already existing ones.

difference is that its coming from a terran player not a zerg player ;)

they will nerf it cause not only i having too much success with it but the pro's are doing so well with it....

im at the point where i do a widow mine drop and it kills 10 workers i feel so bad....i never experienced this in WOL atleast...

same w/ oracles....

well i just think as a "Terran player" do i gotta quote that a few more time? lol

that WM is pretty strong against Z....

against P and T i dun care or its pretty balance against it i dunno...

but against Z holy !@#$ i feel so bad for them luring them into mines n %^-*...especially if they go banelings....

and even if they go roach/hydra w/ addition of marauders i think its OP...

like i said it can be toned down a bit.....and tone down oracles....

lol wanna talk balance? bronze to gold player will have so much trouble against this, either they're too slow to react or not react at all

plat to diamond, a competent terran will use the widow mine correctly aka ME lol

and at the PRO level you already see Terran abusing the !@#$ out of it, using widow mine to its fullest

also most of these WIDOW mine NERF threads are zerg players lol

So you cant post that on one of the already existing threads? Saying "oh im a terran, and heres my opinion"

But no, your an idiot, lets not do that, lets make more of the same thread because your an idiot. Im a masters terran, i guess because im slightly different than you i should make ANOTHER thread on the same topic.

Congrats, your added to the list of retard threads.

A recent interview with David Kim said that Blizzard is thinking about reducing the mine splash radius. Let's see if this weekend's MLG pushes them over the edge and they actually do it.

btw planting 4-5 widow mines will take out 20 + mutas if they're clumped up(since mutas stack pretty tight...even if they're not clumped up the way they are designed, few widow mines can hit ALL OF THEM....

no its because no other thread can get any attention because everyone is spamming stupid widow mine threads.

For instance people asking for help never get it because their threads are never seen. There has already been terrans making threads about it. Trust me you arnt the first, and unfortunately you wont be the last.

I might in the minority as well here, but the zergs i've faced didn't seem to have any issues against widow mines.

I think it's going to pull them back from the edge. WM hasn't been the OP dominating juggernaut like Slayer's blue flame hellions were. The WM henny penny hysteria is blather.

I'm not having any success with WM in any matchup.

I actually hate them with a firey hot passion right now, I'd really rather have a new late game unit :p
