BANISHED UNITSLocustsThis is an extra nerf! They are slower and deal less damage to counter units. Plus it is going to take them longer to destroy structures. In my opinion it might be too much all at once. I don't think you will see them get used much at all after this patch.
- Basic damage reduced by 11%
- Speed reduced from 11 to 9.5
- Locust now do reduced damage versus air units
- Locust now do reduced damage versus anti-vehicle counter units (Cyclops/Hunters)
i think that's the point. i don't believe it was ever intentional for the building killer to be the all-around unit. That's supposed to be the job of the marauder or the warthog on the unsc side.
which the marauder is barely used because it's out performed in all aspects by a speciality unit.
the locust was designed to do one thing really good not to do almost everything.
this will put them much more inline with how they were in hw1. A unit you would have a couple of at the back end of your base assault. Protect them and they do good damage. Don't and they will fall quickly.
