Default Re: Is Thor transportable?

Maybe now all races have that 1 unit that takes hell to transport.
People say that the Collossus can't be transported via PP. Maybe its the same with the Thors?
Btw, can robotics facility units be 'warped' in? I dont remember reading anything about that. Maybe Collossi can just be warped in by PPs. ROFL that would be like, "OMGWTF?!?"

I just dont see how a dropship can carry a Thor because apparently dropships can only ferry 5 infantry units at a time now..

I still go with the liftoff theory.. haha..

The Thor can't be transportable by a Dropship. I know in Starcraft that even if the units were bigger than the transport shit itself, it could still load them; for example, Dragoons boarding Shuttles.

But the Thor is bigger than a Barracks and it would just insult our intelligence if Blizzard made it possible to be transported by the Terran Dropship.

Maybe our intelligence deserves to be insulted if we think the thor is bigger than a barracks. jk but i dont think it will fit in a dropship either. Which is why it needs its own engines.

Maybe it's the camera view but the Thor looks bigger than the Barracks to me. Either way, it's fucking close.

Well...shit. =/ The thing is like a building by itself. They probably have a crew piloting it.

Default Re: Is Thor transportable?

Something tells me that he will trasnport lifting off like a buiilding, losing all offensive abilites while airbone and having extremely poor mobility, if they already built something that big dont you think they could have thought of its transport? heck if they can lift a factory into the air why not this monster?

"Godspeed, Thor"
"More like, Reaverspeed."

Lift off is a good idea, but imagine flying at the speed of a crawling Reaver lol.

Default Re: Is Thor transportable?

It's possible that they could do the lift off thing. It would make sence that the terran would do that and it seems the other races big units have some way to conquer cliffs. I would imagine that if there was a dropship transport it would be 1 per dropship.

I think they will be able to fly like terran buildings, but they won't be able to attack when there flying.

2_feathers has the most probable answer assuming the thor can move over water and clifs at all.

Default Re: Is Thor transportable?

I think there's going to be a different way of transporting that thing. Too big for a dropship, IMO. Maybe you have to "pack" it to transport it and "unpack" it on destination? A bit like the trebuchet from Age of Empires 2.

Default Re: Is Thor transportable?

Lift off makes more sense for the Thor than a dropship but I doubt either will be implemented. You can build a Thor with an SCV, you want one on that island over there? Grab a dropship and go build one.
