Default is statis field undoubably the most powerful spell in the game

yes i agree it is hard to get, but if you were to have a dragoon that could have any spell. you would choose statis field right? i mean we all know how strong cyclone,polymorph is in warcraft 3. now combine this with it being area of effect, indispelable, lasts about twice as long, and creates icecubes and i think its seriously the best spell in the game.

well thats why i tech to arbiters every game no matter what (if i have lots of gas ofc)

This sort of discussion is a bit vacuous. There are great spells for situations, and for matchups. Coming up with an answer to the question of whether stasis is the best isn't that helpful... but just for interests sake, sure, you might be able to justify it.

What you're saying is worded rather badly...

From a terran's perspective, I think the worst two spells to have to deal with are dark swarm and stasis field. Which do I think is worse?

Well, when protoss gets arbiter, it makes the game pretty fucking difficult. Once arbiter are in play you either need to be ready to have one fucking engaging game or simply end it as fast as possible. Usually when protoss decides to go one step further and get stasis, the game has lasted longer than it should have, and you're either on the brink of death or by now you're so large, a simple stasis really isn't that important (and if he has more than one up his sleeve, well...I dunno what to tell you).

With zerg, however, once defilers get consume and can cast dark swarm whenever, you are FUCKED. When dark swarm comes into play, you need to change your whole game; you need to become extremely aggressive, so you can kill as many zerg expos as possible to stop his gas flow, or at least keep a heavy front that's ready to recede on a dime. The moment you let the zerg player worm his way to the front of your base with a dark swarm, there is a damn good chance the game is over.

Because of this, I feel dark swarm is a much deadlier spell than stasis--at least for a terran. Stasis just comes naturally with the game, dark swarm actually makes you work much harder.

The title is a bit of an oxymoron, if it is undoubtably the best why would you need to ask.

It depends on your definition of "best" but I'd say that both dark swarm and plague are better against Terran. And if you're talking about a spell that's brilliant in every match-up then it'd have to be psionic storm.

90% players will say psi storm is the best as-is spell in the whole game, considering every single mentionable factor.

stasis is undoubtly one of the best, but considering ALL factors, psi storm is miles ahead. consider, the unit cost of the casting unit, the required tech, the amount of time spent (350 gas you pay whose effect you can enjoy only 2 minutes after paying sux alot) the casting units vulnerability & blablablabla.

but seeing only the spell effect as a factor. i think yes, stasis is the most powerfull spell in the game.

Freak you are so rude. You can't just log onto blizzforums and start typing "No one cares!" into any thread you want. Have some decency for this high quality forums.

edit: That was a joke btw, I realize my sarcasm is hard to detect.

Against Zerg maelstrom would be ridiculous on dragoons. You freeze them AND can attack them. Not that great against other races...only works on biological units ;x

Stasis IS really good. And I do think it is much more OP than storm, because you can "freeze" some of their army, crush it, then kill the rest of them. They're simply frozen in place, and totally screwed.

The thing though, is that stasis IS so late in tech, it doesn't come into play as much as anybody would hope it too. Either way, I don't think we should be dreaming what spells the dragoon could acquire...

I demand that Freak gets banned. His comments have not only hurt my feelings, but the feelings of everyone at Blizzforums.

thats why it is also the ability of the hardest to get unit, need templar archives, stargate, and then arbiter tribunal, and then ressearch stasis, and pay 100/350 for an arbiter.

Not to mention arbiters literally have the longest production time out of any unit in the game (something like 80 seconds?) I think defilers are a simple forty, so are high temps.
