Easy Brutal? - Trigger Analysis and Beyond

Yes, that's what I meant, for casual damage, I don't want you to get your panties into a twist by looking at weapon damage like you did for hard/brutal.

Ah. I see. I'm still up in the air about doing the casual. perhaps. Hopefully it will use yamato on casual.

50% extra damage taken would make brutal purty darn tough. =P

But I did notice that enemies did more damage than their listed amount to Kerrigan as I played through brutal. You can see the white damage numbers pop up on her portrait every time she gets hit, and it did seem about 25%ish more damage.

I hate the fact that if you re-start the campaign, your mission completion timers get reset for all difficulties.

Anyway, I started the game on Hard.

when I re-played the game on Brutal, in about half of all the levels I actually completed Brutal difficulty in less time than the Hard difficulty.

In some cases, when I re-played Hard, on the third play through, I was unable to beat my Brutal difficulty timing.

Over all, HotS is about 2 difficulty levels easier than WoL, which is to say HotS Brutal is about as easy as Normal on Wings of Liberty, and I'm not even good with the Zerg in Starcraft 2.

Umm, no.

WoL brutal was painfully easy, I have done all but All-in, and I have found each and EVERY mission to be easy.

You are probably very bad with terran if you think that WoL brutal was hard (except for All-in air, d'uh).

I used to think all-in (air) was hard until I decided to mind control mutalisks as well. Surprisingly, you still have enough energy to get the brood lords.

However, i did feel that HotS was quite a bit easier than WoL.

Last time i tried all-in air was when i was in bronze on EU as zerg :D. Could feel easier now, but i am too lazy to keep up with all the waves of units. (+ MC towers run out of energy too fast T_T)

True that, but not more than on 1 level of difficulty

Id have to say I noticed the same thing. I assumed though it was because of a lot of Kerrigan skill imbalances. I could practically solo Brutal missions with kerrigan.


i believe that is the heart of the issue. Kerrigan needed to feel like she was becoming more powerful. If her progress wasnt significant enough, it wouldnt feel right.

However, on the other hand, if blizzard were to balance the difficulty almost sole-ly on this one unit, every single other unit would probably feel useless, and people would probably look to guides, and cookie cutter evolutions.
