    Default SC:L Exclusive Fansite Q&A

    Each StarCraft fansite will receive an exclusive Q&A from Blizzard to prepare for the transition into beta. Now it's SC:L's turn. Here is a sample from the Q&A:

    3. We were told recently that workers can't patrol. This makes SCV auto-repair a lot less useful. (In Warcraft III, you could set a worker to patrol, and it would auto-repair any damaged buildings or mechanical units nearby. Great for keeping towers (and bunkers!) alive.)
    SCVs can patrol, so if you activate auto-casting of the SCV's repair ability, that SCV will repair damaged buildings or units it encounters while on patrol. The SCV will repair nearby units and buildings and continue its designated patrol pattern again after the repairs are complete.

    4. What use does the Overlord usually see versus the Nydus Worm? That is, in what capacity is each transport mechanic used?

    It all depends on a player's choice in each case. When you want try out a sneaky and clever attack on the enemy's base, the nydus worm can be useful in that role as a more tactical and general choice for harassing the enemy's economy. However, you can also use a mass overlord drop just like the original StarCraft, for an aggressive, all-out attack. However, the overlord drop is riskier, as you're putting much of your supply and the cargo in jeopardy if you encounter strong anti-air defense.
    Read the rest here.

    1.Disappointing
    2.Vague, doesn't solve the underlying issue
    3.Useful to know
    4.Hopfefully the Nydus will be more accessible than in Sc1 seeing as it still requires creep
    5.Finally, untransportable Thors was stupid
    6.I honestly don't think the Particle Cannon ability will be more useful
    7.Old news now, but not when asked
    8.Again, old news
    9.At least they're trying.

    Some questions were very old, and alredy previously answered, but it is nice to hear that the thor can be airlifted.

    Many of the answers were vague and general, so this batch was pretty disappointing. The only interesting tidbit we got was the fact that Thor's can be transported, which up until now was impossible.

    In regarding the computer AI, it's interesting to hear that at higher difficult it'll adapt by using the best counters to your units. So I can see as a viable strategy turtling up behind forward defenses, and hiding your units from the eyes of their scouts so they don't know the best way counters to use. Still much the same strategy as facing off against humans, but it's interesting to know that the moment you reveal your units to a computer at higher AI it'll adapt to it as best as possible.

    this is a very noob boring batch. damn it, give us screenshots or campaign previews instead. im tired of this multiplayer information that is predictable and bland.

    USELESS UPDATES! so when is the next update? 10 days? great.

    I cant understand why everyone bothers with gameplay aspect of the game when its constantly get change all the time. Just wait for the BETA Aor the game. Just give us visuals, artworks, wallpapers, CAMPAIGN INFO/PREVIEW, and videos instead (these are the real updates!).

    I agree. Hell, 3 of the questions asked were mine (or more accurately, 2 and one that was asked by multiple people including myself), and I'm utterly disappointed by the short, vague answers.
