I know things seem bleak for terran...but I'm sure there will be balancing issues at play. So don't worry.

When the game is released and wouldn't get good credits then Blizzard can make other changes to satisfy the fans in the third and final chapter of SC2 LOTV

Way to over powered for Protoss and Zerg.

Terran is going to get hammered.

The only thing good for Terrans was the Widow mine but they are thinking of scrapping it already.

Terran is quite out match on these new units against Protoss and Zerg.... I guess because of being "Heart of the Swarm" title.

So i take it both the Mothership and Carrier are being replaced by the new units?  The Tempest does look pretty bad-ass but i'm betting it'll be nurffed in some way.  A quick, long ranged air unit just seems far too powerful to me.

 

I think the Terrain units looks pretty weak.  The Battle Hellion seems a little pointless.  The transformation seems to make little difference to how the unit operates.  The warhound should of been more like the Goliath from the first SC or made it so it could attack air units as, barring the mines, none of the new Terrain units can attack air units or are air units themselves.

 

They also don't seem to have any harassment/manipulation units as the Protoss and Zerg both get one.

 

Zerg look interesting as the two new units don't look like straight forward attack/defend types.  Be interesting to see how people use the swarm hosts.  Could also be a pain if you have to use a detector to attack them one they have burrowed (as the siege tanks stopped firing at them in this vid when they did so).

 

I can imagine that some of these units will be chopped/changed/removed/added as an official release date hasn't been stated so it's still early days.

The Terran's Warhound looks like the MechWarrior's Warhammer. 8-)

I wonder how much damage those ultralisks actually do coz just before they unborrow, marines were under Fungal Growth.

A couple of new units for each race at the price of a full game! Free "F*** you consumers!" greeting card included. This is day one purchase for me!

Is it just me, or do the widow mines remind any of you people of the spider mines from the originianl StarCraft?

Something wrong with a Tempest, it's like siege tank, only faster, can fly, attacks both air an ground a doesn't requires time to change mode.

At 1:25, awwww dude! Poor zerglings wondering to themselves why they can't go forward despite nothing in the way while getting zapped by a Sentry.

 

Priceless.

i dont like the tempest...its kinda generic. I wish they tried balancing carriers instead. Other units are pretty neat. Love the widow mine.

 @banana23man its not at the price of a full game. if you werent so ignorant, you'd know they announced its pricing to be 40$, 2/3 the cost of a game. a fair expansion price.

 @zaku101 its SC2! COH2 has nothing to do with SC2. Not even in the same base building RTS genre.....

 @icestorm88  @rakisy lol ice but lets be honest blizzard isn't good at balancing games look at wow they have broken that game so much that priests are better at dps then healing which is sad when pallys can fill every role and then some...so more on topic I don't see terrans ever getting a fair fight that's why you will almost never ever see anyone in a tournament use them.

That is true, but I was refering to their appearance and how they burrow undergrownd.

Its the player not the race, if you can't adapt to a specific race then your a bad player.

 

Same thing for your "WoW"

if you can't play the class , then your just a bad player,.

 @zipperflipper The majority of players at tournys are Terran. Blizzard does a great job with balance, if your having problems, you are just a shitty player.

 @J4m3sR4n0r72 *Nerdy mode on* Maybe the name "widow" refers to black widow, as in a deadly kind of spider. Hence, it is a legacy of spider mine, but made much more deadlier. :P
