Marauders are worse than stalkers to fight

General Discussion
So I understand that, it all makes sense. A marauder does 20 damage to an Armored unit, while a stalker does 14, BUT when FULLY upgraded a Stalker does 18 damage to Armored, where a marauder does 33 damage vs Armored?! SO a marauder becomes a Tank when he is fully upgraded? His ONLY downfall is that he can't shoot air? What tank can? oh and this tank only costs 100 minerals and 25 gas. No wonder why Idra rages against Marine Marauder balls!

+3 gives marauder 33 damage? wtf?
I think Dayvie plays terran too much.
because 20 + 6 (1/1 x 3) equals 33.
I remember when voids were the single most godly OP unit in game... now marauders are more fatal...

Le sigh...

Its Plus 2.
All upgrade give 10% bonus rounded to nearest.
That is why stalkers get +1.
somehow i think the 2 units were supposed to have different roles.
Ok, nvm. I searched it up. Op is trolling, it's +1/+1 per upgrade, so 26 to armored at +3.

still a lot :(

You think that looks OP? Try looking at the actual DPS instead of just the damage per shot. Stimmed dps is insane.
Here are the links here to where the info came from btw. Just look at the "weapon" and the stats will show up for +10(+13) Amored (so 33 damage vs Armored/mini tank)

That link says marauders do 13(+13) when upgraded. So that would be 26.

Still kind of ridiculous with stim imo, but not quite as ridiculous as 33 would have been.

And then you look at hydra and stalker dps scaling, and i can't help but to frown in disapproval.

And add concussion in to the mix and it's so sad you almost have to laugh. =(

I'm protoss though so I may be biased.
i wouldnt be concerned with that if i was playing protoss

the 13 is what they do at full upgrades. 13/13, meaning twenty six.

its not so much that maruders DPS is fricken insane. its pretty warranted considering how hard they eat chargelots to the face when FF is added in. Its more that marines get more DPS per upgrade than stalkers and hydras do, while costing 4x less and using half the supply
-dying in droves, unlike both zealots and stalkers who are tough to kill especially with blink and ffs. The races play differently.
