Default The Terrans...

I haven't seen any threads discussing the Terrans so I'm going to open one.

What's your opinion on the new Terran units and the changes to existing Terran units?

I don't really like the new siege tank deploment method where the treads rotate out. I love the new "jet-pack" marines and think that they'll add a nice new aspect to the game. On the new nuke targeting circle I love it because now you don't have to find "the damn dot". In the gameplay trailer I didn't see any ghosts though so maybe they're remotely launched?

As a staunch Terran partisan, I'm excited. I really can't wait to use those Reapers, going to be so great for taking out expansions and base harrasment.

I'm afraid of the Protoss Colossi. My main strategy on B.Net when I played was a 3/3 medarine drop with siege tanks for support. They look like they would tear through 'Rines, and they certainly tore through those Reapers pretty good.

I keep my dreadlocks in a napkin ring
Rap and sing

The more ticklish the more you have
Sitting on the curb of what used to be the burbs
And before that was Canarcie
I'm a disturbed and bitter herb

1. Marines have shields and bayonets... that should be removed ASAP.
2. Seige Tanks look like they are made of plastic. The new deployment method would look a lot better if they weren't so plasticy.
3. Battlecruisers look fat and bloated... (to round). BC's are very square in SC and BW.

When I turned 13 I pretty much said "Fuck all the other races" so yeah when I join a game its almost instinct to set my race to Terran. Yeah when I first watched the videos I was already watching the Terran player closely.

Reapers look amazingly wicked for harassment, sort of like the usual "I'm going to just fuck around with your base developement with 12 wraiths"

I really don't much care for the shields and bayonets either hehe, but I'll reserve judgement until I see the units posted on the website first, cos you never know whatll get polished up.

Siege Tanks are not as fearful as before.After seeing the replays it seems like the protoss have ways to counter them.

I don't see bayonets, just the shields.

The shields make sense. If you raise that thing as the same time a zergling leaps, you could save your life.

Anyone else noticed Dropships now have to land in order to drop units? This will certainally ruin some strategies

But it looks like they drop all the units at once instead of the original SC dropping one at a time...So maybe it's not so bad. It might actually be faster this way.

Yes, but it abolishes drop-and-pick tactics. Oh well, the landing animation looks cool nevertheless

Just want to point out Reapers have pistols, they aren't marines.

But I do hope those damn siege tanks get polished.
