The Terran Vikings

October 22, 2009

I think that the Vikings are one of my favorites in Terran. They can be BOTH ground and air units, which can be very useful in many times. For example, a swarm of Corrupters are chasing your Viking. You can just shift it to ground mode and chase them back.
This is the picture of the Terran Viking in ground mode:

And this is the air mode:

And here’s the Viking in a skirmish with the Protoss:

For some reason, I miss the old Goliath. But I think that the Viking is a lot better than the Goliath, so I have nothing to worry about.


Dark Archons

October 20, 2009

I just love it when I sneak into the opponent’s base and kidnap (?) an SCV or a Drone using the infamous Dark Archon. Also, Feedback is just amazing. Using it, you can get rid of those pesky Science Vessels easily.

But I think that all of these would be gone in Starcraft 2. Blizzard got rid of Dark Archon :'(. That means no more of mind controlling and Feedbacks.
I think the reason why Blizzard took Dark Archons away is because they can be REALLY cheap. For example, if a Dark Archon took away and SCV, eventually the Protoss player could get Thor and the Mothership, which will be devastating.
The main point is that I want the Dark Archons in SC2. Dark Archons forever! (But that’s not gonna change anything. LOL.)
