No. Tiberium Sun Titans > Predator Tanks/Tiberium War Titans. Also, Mammoth Mk2 >100 Mammoth Mk3.

Pfft.. Tiberium Sun had some of the worst unit designs ever. HATED the walkers there. Tiberium wars all the way..

Eh, to each his own, I guess.  I absolutely loved the walker units from TS.  Hover MLRSs were cool too.

I think Titans are overpowered in TSun, and underpowered, least till you get the railgun, in TWars. And I loved the MkII, but only for the AT-AT vibe it gave off.

Oi! Go back to the C&C topic if you want to discuss C&C!

This here is the StarCraft 2 thread... or one of them, anyway.

I think however, that the MkII will probably be challenged by the Protoss Colossus. What do you all think?

Um, no, it wouldn't, because the Colossus does reduced damage to armor. It's an anti-small-guy unit.

Well, it could definitely outrange it by stepping up cliff to shoot down and going down cliff when the MKII goes up.

...Wow infinite micro possiblities abound.

The Colossus is supposed to have (upgraded) the longest anti-ground range of any unit. But its extreme height makes it vulnerable to both anti-ground and anti-air attack.

It's an anti-small-guy unit employed by space elves with uber tech. It can still beat that primitive contraption.
I will ask that you explain yourself. Please do so with the clear understanding that I may decide I am angry enough to destroy all of you and raze this sickening mausoleum of fraud down to the naked rock it stands on.

StarCraft 2 is going to be like this.  I will probably play SC2 from when it comes out for years to come. Probably put it down and pick it back up again and play some more. It's happened with SC and with WarCraft III.  I go away and then come back.  With C&C I play it for a good long while and then it tends to get put away for good.  Except RA2 and RA which I both reinstalled multiple times.

Don't forget about WarCraft II.  :D

Unfortunately for Mac OS users, they've dropped support for OSX, so you'd have to run it under an emulator or run Windows on your computer, I guess...

...No problem with StarCraft, though!

Totally off-topic, I just happened to have this two-player map for Brood War that I made a while back laying around... What do you think?

I tried coming back to warcraft III a month or two ago. I found that the average skill level had increased substantially during my absence and got pretty tired of having my head handed to me pretty quickly.
