    I don't care. Both are acceptable upgrades imho.

    I voted for the shield upgrade. Makes more sense to me.

    Give them the power armor only if they move 30% slower
    then my lings will rape them even more

    The reason why you don't see riot shields nowadays is no accurate depiction of what the future would be like.

    As others have already said, there are melee units in Starcraft, so shields would help. Not only that, their power suits allow them to still wield 2 handed weapons (their gauss rifles).

    Voted for the shield, it's efficient and all marines can just pick it up from the barracks or armory instead of instantly having millions of suits being outdated for a newer more expensive model.

    Bulletproof (bullet resistant anyway) shields are used today by swat teams in situations where the targets are known to carry high-powered weapons, and as others have said power-suits would allow such things to be used on the battlefield again.

    I'm wondering if someone would post the suit suggestion on the official forums, what the responses would be.




    I've actually changed my mind in the meantime. I was playing sc when it hit me, the medic in sc alredy has a shield, and it has more hp than the marine. So the shield upgrade now makes perfect sense to me
