Aria Of War by ArtMagix Aria Of War by ArtMagix
R.I.P. Warhound.

Really diggin the color pallet that they used in the new HOTS cinematic, so I thought I try painting this with it.

The trailer was like...as if JJ Abrams and Michael Bay just had a babbi and it was delivered at Blizzard, really cool and all but still can't compare to the epic storytelling from Broodwar cinematics...

Plus I really wanted to see the Warhound in the game, but I guess a smurffed Spidermine is what higher-ups want : /

Can't wait for March 12th!

Blizzard should consider reinstating the War Hounds for the next installment. We barely got to know them in HotS Campaign.

Yeah. They were pretty useless against the player as well.

No they were not taken out because they were useless.

They were in fact so efficient at being anti armor unit that they were overly effective for their cost and production speed, not to mention extremely good at sniping off high armor units like the Thor, Siege Tanks, Marauders, Colossus, Immortals, Ultralisks, Roaches.

To the point that they would replace the Marauders, which would be extremely redundant and boring to use at a higher game meta level.

That's not what I'm saying. Warhounds do more damage to mechanical units and little to biological ones. It was removed because you would never see them in TvZ games, but they could quickly make any TvP game one-sided. It created an imbalance.

Not what you said from previous comment?

Looks like someone who couldn't even counter Broodlord or didn't know that Phoenix could move and attack simultaneously now ALL of a sudden knows about advanced meta play in TvP...

Seems like just Googled for direct answers :)

I know how to deal with brood lords. They are just really annoying. I know that phoenixes can fire while moving, they just don't seem to do so for me... which is also annoying. I know I said that Warhounds are useless, though I didn't say that they are completely useless. They are just unevenly matched against Kerrigan and her biological army. If they were used against Raynor in WoL Or possibley Zeratul in Legacy of the Void, they would have a much greater affect. I

Try to get all those when Terran can make all this in under 7 mins on 1 base.
