I think the overseer looks a little more touched up. Might be me.

Hmm, I never noticed his tail is sharper than the Overlord's in this picture:

And the Changeling does look like a human torso with a blobby body...

My thoughts exactly!

The game does look more sharp than BR4, though. Interesting. Thanks for the pics!

Swine flu is less contagious and less lethal than normal flu. The whole debacle is a media sham.

Again: you're more likely to catch and die from the normal flu that comes around every year. Just because you were unlucky doesn't invalidate the statistics.

Hmm, does it mean that Nydus Worms can be created on open terrain, and spreads Creep around themselves?

That's a larva? It doesn't look like one, rather rows upon rows of serrated death.

I went to that event too, the ticket price was 20 dollars moreless. When i entered, i inmediately went to the blizzard booth. I literally pissed my pants. I dont remember stats or specific shit abouthe game. For me it was a dream that came true. The graphics are goddamn awesome. The units look fantastic. Definitely playing the game changes ur view of the entire development process.

Im telling you guys. This game is going to rock. Dont fear anything. right now is freaking awesome. I played like 20 times. Unfortunately u could only play multiplayer, for 30 minutes each time.

I can wait now without any problem for the release...

PsiWarp

That was the description of the Changeling from BlizzCon goers, I guess you can more accurately say that it has a humanoid upper torso. Looks more like a crawling Creep Tumor turd though.

See the ability icon for clearer view of its arms...

Sorry, it says Espores Acidas... translates into Acid Spores :/

Spore Cloud was so fucking epic T_T

On the other hand, glad the Overseer got some color over its dull carapace texture... and he looks like a floating tripod with that long tail of his...

Pandonetho

Well archer, I blame you for the loss of the spore cloud. Your aim as an archer was severely lacking, and thus overseers were never threatened by your range, thus they evolved to not have spore clouds since you could never hit them anyway. This is due to the fact that your fingers were constantly sore from typing in the macro mechanics thread, causing you to phail at using arrows.

Well, if it's anything like the original Acid spores, it complements well with most of Zerg units' low damage output per shot. Best with AoE like Mutas.

dah, i hate my university... first Children of Bodom came to mexico in september, just in the middle of my first period of test so i couldnt go, and now this (im right now in the second period of test <.<)


the VA was in english or spanish? plz tell me that it was in english... i dont want to hear raynor saying "pinche tychus guey no mames cabron" with a fucking norteño accent T_T. (the mexican VA in Halo 2 gave me nightmares)

A little detail (I don't know if it was this way already).

http://img252.imageshack.us/i/img0465a.jpg/

Translated:

Spawn Larva

Target Hatchery, Lair or Hive spawns 4 larvas in 40 seconds.
If target Hatchery, Lair or Hive has more than 3 larvas, regular larvas production is halted till it has less than 3.

So I hope it's easy to distinguish Queen Spawned larvas from regular ones...on the contrary you will be forced to evolve ALL larvas before using Spawn Larva again on the same Hatchery.

This is not an issue, I Think, if you have only one Queen at the target Hatchery but...if you have more than one?

More on this build:

Queen heals 200 hop instead of 100

Nydus Network can be loaded with a maximum of 12 units before you deploy a Nydus Worm.

http://img21.imageshack.us/i/img0491h.jpg/

Acid Spores lasts 30 seconds (It was less in SC1 or I don't remember well..)

http://img132.imageshack.us/i/img0482dh.jpg/

Overseer evolution cost 50 minerals and 100 gas (I thought it was 50 and 50)

There's a simbol in the drone's action panel I can't recognize (the first one on the second line)

Wellcome, Sato. Good pics!!

Your comments are interesting also, a few of them specially catched my attention:
- The Mothership's Vortex continues to suck units all the duration.
- The Mothership's Time Bomb slows down only enemy ground units.
- The Roach cannot move underground anymore
- The Thors fall apart under enemy Siege Tank fire, and you could kill 5 Mutalisks of a 8 Mutalisk group with a lonely Thor (did the Thor die under the Mutalisks fire alone?).
- Bunkers have 6 unit capacity, and the Sensor tower has a lot of range (isn't this too good vs Ghosts? You probably can see right away where is the Nuking Ghost, right?)
- I agree that it's strange that only the Queen can extend Creep, but at least you don't need to use Drones for that.

Another things i noticed:
- Nydus Worms cost 100 minerals, and generates Creep around him, but must be called over Creep (i assume this is to require Creep drop, and then sustains the Creep by itself).
- Creep traduced to spanish as... talo??? (english: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thallus)
- The Overseer has a spell named Acid Spores, that increses the damage received by the target in +5 during 30 seconds.
- Overseer keeps the same amount of control of the Overlord, and has the Pneumanized Caparace available at the Hatchery (i thought the Overseer had this upgrade by default).

Thanks, very good stuff!

I believe that's the icon to instruct a drone to harvest. My guess is it'll change to a return icon when it has a full load.

This is not an issue, I Think, if you have only one Queen at the target Hatchery but...if you have more than one?

It´s just like it always was. If there are less than 3 Larvae at a Hatchery the Hatchery will produce a new one for free, otherwise you won´t get more. The queen just allows you to have more than 3 Larvae at a given Hatchery. It just stops the "natural" Larvaegeneration. It doesn´t even say that it stop Spawn Larvae from working, you could have 30 Larvae - you´d just miss out on the Hatcherys innate production.

Look at my post. It's not the full traduction, but there are a lot of interesting facts.


Norfindel - Talo is dough from corn flour. (in Spanish) The word is also used to reference a basic food staple.....interesting.
I think it has been chosen because of the seaweed/fungi association. Still, i associate the Creep more with living "meat" than a fungi.
