Can someone tell me what is different from what we saw last time? I don't see any difference.

I don't bother with tech trees so I couldn't tell you :(

According to that zerg tech tree, hydralisks are tier 1 and roaches are tier 2.

It's been that way for a while now, actually :].

Kimera you are late for 3 months or so :P It has been that way since September, or something like that.

KDraconis confirmed that the Zerg and Terran tech trees are unchanged. The only change, apart from a few visual ones, is that the Immortal building pre-requisit is Robotics Facility instead of the Twilight Council. I guess it's built from the Robotics Facility instead of the Gateway then...

Did that triangle building and armory switch places? The armory looks like its on tier 3 now. What would that mean? Did the buildings change purposes or did they get moved completely? Or perhaps its an error, because I saw thors quite early in a few of those games.

hm...
i'll try to tell the differences
Zerg: [I]No Tech-Tree changes
Protoss: Immortal now trained from "Robotics Facility" instead "Gateway" so he cant be used in "Warp-in" anymore.
Terran: No Tech-Tree changes


that's pretty much it o_o

That's not new either. It's been that way for a while now.

Still, that's the latest change from the old tech tree to the most recently seen one.

Protoss looks the same. 1 More entry in Robotics Facility, 1 less in Twilight Council. Should be the Immortal.

Terran: the same, but less confusing with the nonsense arrows that had before.

Zerg: also the same, also fixed the problem with the confusing arrows.

Doesn't people read threads anymore? This has been mentioned twice already.

- Immortal moved from "Twilight Council" to "Robotics Bay"

Srsly, why is the Stargate the pre-req for the Templar Archives, Dark Shrine, and Robotics Support Bay? It makes no damn sense.

I don't think it is. I remember seeing a blue post about this and apparently Blizzard just doesnt know how to organize a tech tree and make it legible. The structures below, require the buildings directly above them, not the stargate. They just decided to not add in the extra arrows or something.

So Stargate -> Fleat Beacon
Twilight Council -> Dark Shrine and Templar Archives
Robotics Facility -> Robotics Support Bay

I may have the names wrong on some of those, but you get the gist of it right?

The lack of extra arrows makes it stupidly confusing. Can't you picture all the n00bs building Stargates for no reason thinking it'll get them tech it doesn't?

@ Blizzard: Stop being lazy sobs and add the required arrows, dammit.

No I'm not. According to Korean posts on battle.net, it was different just last month.

There is something very fishy going on if these are indeed "new" tech trees. A Blue clarified that the robo bay required robo fac and that both templar archives and dark shrine required twilight council. Very fishy indeed.

It's not fishy; it's exactly what the older tech tree looked like. It's simply terribly, terribly misleading.

Well, they didn't mention the arrow-fixing :)

Yeah, i made a thread about that not long ago, and before that, there was another when that images first saw the light.
