    Default Are Roaches tougher when burrowed?

    Sorry if this has already been talked about, but it's been bugging me for a while, and so I finally decided to ask . I did a search in the two BR3 threads and this topic didn't seem to come up, so sorry if I missed something.

    At 7:26 in Battle Report 3, we can see that the Roach has 100 hp, which is what we're used to seeing in earlier BRs, but then its hp suddenly drops to 90, which coincides with the time it unburrows.

    I checked the Roach's SC wiki page, but I couldn't find any information on this (it does state that the Roach has 100 hp, but references the earlier battle reports).

    Hu that's new. My guess is that it's a glitch... I haven't heard about this at all.

    It is outdated anyway, BR3 is played in the time BR2 came out, btw now Roaches are Tier 2, so they are probably even Stronger! I hope so

    I think that was also a bug. When it burrowed it got 100hp. But when it unborrowed it got it's 90hp back.

    Ehn, it makes sense, though. I wouldn't be opposed if they did this with all Zerg ground units

    The only thing that might worry me would be how much extra health the Ultralisk might get.

    I believe it was indeed a mistake. Unless i've missed an update burrowing gives no sort of bonus to HP or survivability beyond being hidden.

    Yeah some blue confirmed it at some point too. Hydra back down to 1.5 and roaches up to 2. It's a pretty interesting choice imo, and a very... SC:BW sort of choice
