Pre Beta History 9: Pre-Blizzard WWI 08

This collects information after the Zerg reveal in March 2008 and before the Blizzard World Wide Invitational tournament in July.

Terran Units:
  • Nomad: replaces Mine Drone with building Spider Mines.
  • Battlecruiser: replaces Plasma Torpedoes with Missile Barrage: an AoE AtA ability.
  • Thor: gets its anti-air attack back. Loses Barrage again.

Protoss Units:
  • Mothership: loses Time Bomb and Black Hole. It gains the ability to be used as a destination point for Warp-In, and can transfer energy to units below it. And has passive AoE cloaking.

Protoss Buildings and Mechanics:
  • Phase Cannons: cannot become mobile.

Zerg Units:
  • Overseer: gains the following abilities from the Overlord: Creep generation, resource corruption. [The move of Creep generation may have just been a mistake by Karune]

Zerg Buildings and Mechanics:
  • Sunken/Spore Clusters: can become mobile.
  • Zerg loses individual unit upgrades, reverts back to SC1-style upgrades.

Global Mechanics:
  • Units must have vision on a unit to be able to fire at them. And units firing from a cliff do not give vision to other units. Thus, to attack units on a cliff, you must gain vision over them.
