But they should be scared of the force of Goliaths that any half-way smart Terran player would escort the Sieges with.

That would be quite the battle...yeah I don't know if the Goliaths and Siege tanks would be able to counter that effectively without numerical superiority or having a really good defensive position.

Re: Starcraft 2: It's official.
Actuali in a very good defensive situation the terran siege tanks coupled with goliaths and marines in bunkers can take out anithing any race can throw on them on the ground. Neither the Zerg or the protos can match the terrans in defensive battles. Sure the Protos have the reaver i believe it is called but then again you only have to hit it a few times with you goliaths and they are gone. Man this brings back memories......! The zerg are very adapted at making rush while the protos are best suited for open field combat in prelonged battles because of they superior shields.

True that...the Protoss I found were actually good for hit and fade attacks since you could get in and out of battle pretty effectively, deal some damage in the process, and then protect your damaged units until their shields were back up.

They Have A Demonstration Video For Download At The Web Site, Starcraft2.com.I think the protoss need there own like "SCV" to fix there carriers, scouts, and so on.I also think that the BattleCruiser should look a little bit more like the real one.Same for the Carrier.

That was in Starcraft. I might be mistaken, but I think this is Starcraft 2. Don't quote me on that, though.

I think he means they should look less like a toy. The scale really is a bit ridiculous.

True, but the gameplay would be ridiculous if units were accurately scaled.

StarCraft has prided itself on a cartoonish representation of otherwise realistic (in the frame of sci-fi) units. Hades has made a relevent point in saying the Battlecruiser no longer resembles the realistic interpretation seen in StarCraft, but that point is moot given that this is StarCraft 2, and the realistic design this new Battlecruiser is based upon may have been subject to change.

1. There's nothing realistic about the Zerg.

2. If the units were re-scaled than tehy would have to be rebalanced. Thus if you scale the BC or carrier, you'd have to make them far more costly and powerfull...to have less on them on screen. Actually, this ends up more resource conserving than havinh things as tehy are ATM..

How do you know how many Zerg died in this war? (or how many Zerg there were at the begining)  Maby they barely won...
