Mutation 142: Overclocked

Co-op Missions Discussion
The Tal'darim begins tinkering with the basic input/output system of the defense systems. The enemy as a result begins moving much faster due to the increased voltage. The power from lost units is automatically transferred to the nearest AI, thereby increasing its effectiveness further. To prevent thermal throttling, the defense systems channel the excess energy into plasma blasts from their structures. Help Aurana stabilize the terminals before the station overheats and corrupts the personality data storage.

Map: Malwarfare
Speed Freaks - Enemy units have double their normal movement speed.
Avenger - Enemy units gain increased attack speed, armor, and life when nearby enemy units die.
Photon Overload - All enemy structures attack nearby hostile units.

Reddit post: Will post later.

Notes:
  • Suppression tower spawning pattern for malwarfare: https://i.imgur.com/slOETvh.jpg
  • Avenger can buff units up to ten times, with each increasing HP and shields by 10%, life regen by 1 per second, armor by 0.3, and attack and movement speed by 10%.
  • Units that get the Avenger buff also grow in size to give players a visual indicator.
  • Apparently even Ravens' Auto Turrets get Photon Overload, which is pretty funny.
  • Mind-controlling/Reclaiming Avenger-buffed enemy units will cause them to lose the Avenger buff.
  • The first wave hits faster because of Speed Freaks.

Commander of the Week winner of last week: Vorazun/Zeratul, Tychus
IIRC "Speed Freaks" doesn't double units' movement speed. It changes movement speed of all enemy units to a uniform value 5.5
Amon's unit.. fast & hard. .. soso

    Why 2 polls?
    As Nova main in the past, I now realised that I cheat on her regularly with ma new buddy Tychus.

    "Same" concept & gameplay, but better mobility.

    Sorry Nova, you will always be in my heart <3

    P.S: mutation pretty easy with Tychus
    Alarak slayers plus few wrathwalkers are amazing this week
    Did it with Zeratul's Mass Cannons. Relatively easy even when I'm playing it with an ungodly lag and with Stukov ally being countered by lurkers.

    Mass Cannons are ridiculously cost effective, even more so than swarmhosts.
    Another easy mutation for Tychus. Really nothing can beat his abundant healing.

    Your Stukov ally sucked if he did not include turrets in his comp. All you need is 1 ahead of the bunkers.
    In general, it is a super easy mutation for any commander.

    Because Hunter accidentally linked the polls from last week, I assume ;)
    This was very easy as Zeratul. The crystal calldown, Serdath Legion, and the Avatar of Essence all work wonders to nullify Avenger, and the other mutators aren't that threatening to begin with.

    Getting any easy enemy comp (Terran bio) probably helped. My DTs had a field day.
    what would you do vs explosive comp as Zeratul?
    Dt will die nonstop
    Zeratul should have select all Cannon as W !
    Did this first try using Vorazun with Zeratul ally

    Abbrogator. That comp is fragile.

    Speed freaks + poopagator.
