Thread: Infested Buildings

  1. #1

    Default Infested Buildings

    I think it'd be cool if the Infestor could infest Defensive buildings.

    It could infest bunkers like this.
    It could infest Planetary Fortresses like this.
    It could also infest Missle Turrets creating a walking anti-air building/unit.
    It could also infest Cannons essentialy creating a Zerg Dragoon (and if I had my choice it would look like a Zergy Dragoon).
    It coudl aslo infest Spine and Spore Crawlers which would make them loose their "root" ability and allow them to shoot without having to be rooted, and would remove their movement speed penalty while off of creep.

    Perhaps Queens could ALSO have this ability at a high energy cost to help zerg deal with early harass.

    It would be cool, but it would be pretty hard to balance.

    Screw multiplayer then. I'd love to see this in campaign.

    I say make all or most buildings infestable as they were way back in Alpha for campaign.

    Pretty sure that's a given. Propably won't be every building, but at least a few of them we haven't seen.

    I think it helps balance a un-balanced aspect of the game that Blizzard has said exists. The inability for Zerg to siege or in other words to break dug-in positions.

    Most dug-in positions involve defensive stuctures. This ability might help break these positoins in WOL since it wont get the new units that HOTS is getting.

    Might also help vs the forge fast expand.

    Having the infestor be able to infest bunkers is one thing. Having them be able to infest Planetary Fortresses is another.

    Also, it's already hard enough for a Protoss to keep up with Zerg's macro when they fast expand, it's doesn't need to be made harder by having Infestors have some kind of imba anti-forge fast expand. Although, either way, I'm pretty sure it'd be some what useless since what can an Infestor do given the amount of time it takes to tech and then store up energy.



    Rest In Peace, Old Friend.

    We will probably see Infestor evolution, like Zergling one, that is able to infest structures.
