Balance Test Map Update Soon - May 20

General Discussion
1 2 3 7 Next
Hello everyone,

Thank you for your feedback and continued help with the current balance test map changes. After further evaluation and discussion, we’re leaning towards testing ZvZ changes that will strictly focus on the late game.

Therefore, we’d like to try these two changes instead of the current Spore and Hydralisk changes.

- Broodlord gains the Frenzied ability.
- Frenzied is changed to also be immune to movement altering abilities.

With these newly proposed changes, the ZvZ match-up can remain the same as it is now, while also providing a clear counter to the rare Swarm Host stalemate games. Please let us know your thoughts regarding these changes, and we’ll move from there.

Thank you.

This! I am tired of waiting! Get stuff done!
Interesting. Would the new broodlord be immune to fungal root as well?

I do think this change is good, but we will see how it pans out
Does this mean you won't be able to pull your own Ultralisks up cliffs?
What is the status of the servos change?

Pretty annoying that Terran is basically non-existent in tournaments yet you fiddle around with ZvZ changes for a month completely ignoring a bigger issue.
Patience people. Balance is a delicate thing. I'd rather that they get it right on the first try than us having to deal with a bunch more patches trying to fix patches. We've already been through that whole song and dance before.
+1

Definitely better than the previously proposed changes.

This is actually a very minor but effective change for dealing with the problem. However Swarm-Hosts are not only a ZvZ exclusive problem.

They make for horrible spectator games vs all race, the unit itself is overall bad for the game.
I think if you're going to continue being confused about how to change zvz, you should back burner it and just release the hellbat change now. It's not an issue in code S level games anyway.
yes, no more pulling your own ultras up cliffs.. lets take out creativity from z

Yeah this is total BS. Basicly they do not do anything, they just want us "to wait"...

I don't think from a balance standpoint that really ever mattered. Also, what's so creative about doing something like that? You'd have to be trolling and/or your opponent would be really bad.

They will most likely take damage, but don't become rooted, just like ultralisks.
I am waiting for the hellbats change for so long, how much longer? Just add the hellbat change to the ladder, PLEASE!!!
Finally a good change, thank you for ZvZ buff to broodies!

Nah, no one doing that. You still can drop ultralisks with Overlords or Nydus

Frenzy Lord is really great idea

I assume you mean "Frenzied", the passive ability currently used by the Ultralisk.
So, the Broodlord's one is also passive, correct?

"Frenzy" is currently an incomplete ability that has been used by the Infestor at some point during WoL's development that has caused stun, slow and mind control immunity along with a 25% damage boost for 30 seconds.
I assume that you don't mean that "Frenzy" ability.
