I've been plying 1v1 all day today and every time I play some low level player they go banished and spam the locust it's an easy way to win and something needs to be done about it! I can deal with them quite easily when I have my air units but what really gets me is the fact they can move and fire at the same time pluss sit outside your base and fire so far away that you base turrets don't touch them that seems silly. What's the point of a watch tower when they can still fire further than that? There really is no strategy to win if someone spams them! They run through your bases. I personally would like to see them need to stop to fire there beam cannons, this way you can use counter units properly and have a chance if someone just spams them and has 50 on the feild. I like what they are going to to with the new patch but tbh I don't think they needed tweaking just stop to fire?
No, read the patch again because you did not comprehend the nerf. They are slowing the move spd down, anything should be able to close the gap now. They reduced the damage to everything and further reduced damage to all air, Cyclopes, and Hunters. That's huge.
As for the turret issue they have the range of a wraith, wraith and other tanks can pull that off too. It's called don't build 4 turrets, that's a horrible build and will get you destroyed easily every time. It's not a unit problem that is a you tower. Build a watch tower, it increases turrets range, making it a greater range than the locust. Not that hard
