The EG Graken has left the building
It’s a huge surprise. Evil Genuises has Greg “the kraken” dismissed “IdrA” fields. The Zerg was known for his disparaging remarks. But to harass the own community, then arguably Alexander Garfield, CEO of evil Genuises was too much of a good.
IdrA has become his undoing the many swearing. The native Americans almost chronically railed on its streams over the perceived inabilities of his opponents and was downright famous for its emotional Spielabbrüche. But now, the community had become targets of the kraken.
On the dedicated fan page fans, enthusiasts and amateur psychologists like stared about possible reasons for IdrAs type. Fields promptly volunteered to speak and referred to the community as a bunch of full idiots. He himself paid lucky enough even for that, to treat them as such.
But that deadline is now. On May 9, evil Genuises separated summarily from the probably most popular StarCraft player in America and perhaps popular players of the team.
Heart of the Swarm Zerg race development
Are good two months since the release of StarCraft II: heart of the swarm passed. During this time, developer has entertainment the development of the game from behind the scenes observed Blizzard and analyze the impact of the newly added units. Now, it may be time to make the first adjustments in the game. Check this amazing Hots Guide .
With the general balance in StarCraft II: Heart of the swarm is one very satisfied, it says at Blizzard. Nevertheless there are opportunities for improvements in the game. To test these extensively prior to implementation, one calls all players, that create three following changes to the spore crawler, burrow upgrade and Oracle on an extra for it to evaluate balance test map.
At the time, the Zerg mirror match is very much dominated by Mutalisks. According to David Kim, game balance designer for Blizzard, you want to limit the usefulness of the Zerg against Zerg air units, to encourage players to apply other strategies. However, it seems satisfied with the role of Mutalisks in the other matchups, so that one has been looking for a change that will affect only the ZvZ. The result is now increasing the bonus damage of the spore crawler against biological units of 15 + 15 to 15 + 30. Since the Zerg as only breed have biological flight units, the change will affect only on the mirror matchup.
In heart of the swarm the burrow upgrade was set from the second to the first Techstufe, to give an aggressive early-game the Zerg more options. This change has spread but less than initially hoped. With reduce the cost of upgrade from 100/100 to 50/50 it is hoped to see more variantenreichere and more interesting openings:
It is together with the Terran Hellbat of terror each StarCraft II ECOLINE: the Oracle. David Kim’s balancing team sees still more potential in the flying protoss unit. So, the speed of movement of the oracles of 3,375 on 4 and acceleration of 2 to 3 will be increased. Thus, the Oracle would be just as fast as a Mutalisk. According to David Kim, it thus hopes to even more to a “core unit” of the protoss army become the Oracle. Also the micro-potential of the unit will increase even further. It is however about strength and frequency of Oracle-all-In the as well as proxy-Stargate-play deliberately, but believes that the changes will affect only marginally. Finally, Oracle crate was but strong
