PostSubject: Unit Speed   Wed Jul 06, 2011 4:15 am

(I hope thats the right forum for this topic)

I think the unit speed is one of the biggest synergy aspects in this game and is not much discussed.
Especially for Zerg there are many problems with unit speed.

For example:

zerglings and banelings are borderline crap without speed, but if you research speed for them you cant build hydras, infestors and broodlords, at least not efficiently because you will have a split army.

So in short: There are 2 speed groups as zerg

Ultralisks:
An even bigger problem are ultralisks, they are almost a part of the faster speed group, almost but a bit slower enough so that they will be behind the other units, which is obviously bad as a melee unit (especially with their crap pathing).

Overseers:
Are either slower or faster than most zerg units.

Creep (Overlords):
A bad unit in concept, they change the speed of ground units, which seperates them from air units. And even worse if your army is bigger than the creep highway the outer units are behind and again your army is more split and has a smaller arc.

Of cause there are similar problems for the other races too, they are just not that significant.


Suggestions:

Make upgrades toggleable (is that a word? Smile ) once researched! (except energy upgrades of cause)
This will not only solve the speed problem but makes it not a risk to research many upgrades like seeker missle or neural parasite.

Next, please change the role of the overlord somehow, i have no idea how though, maybe for drops? confused
