I like all patches nerfing tanks (y) . Removal is still best, hate tanks...
A lot of good things but the main problem with spectre isn't the initial lash range, it's the following range of lash, impossible to run away once it has started. Also not sure hunters needed the nerf. Rest seems good though.

Everybody knew it was impossible, untill someone came who didn't know that.

Not sure why hunters were nerfed that seems a little unnecessary. Also I noticed all changes were nerfs. It would be nice to have some buffs to units that aren't viable at all.

I am against abduct ability in MA, way too op.
I agree that the armor scaling on some units seems a bit off, but would need specific test results to form an opinion on that.
Reducing corrupor cost i disagree, since we will face the same problem again as before the cor/vik nerf that was needed to make air viable again.
I especially like the Kerrigain and Ultralisk changes.
For base defs i suggest to split the upgrades for AA turrets and other turrets, and make a limit on 2/3 upgrades for normal turrets for hp, armor range and damage, while leaving more upgrades available for AA turrets, since AA turrets actually make sense and other turrets are in 95% of cases simply used for abuse, whereas one could aswell get tanks and sentries to defend ones base, while lots of unskilled oponents usually use those to prolong a 20 min game into a 1 hour game until sd hits.
Thors with all ups are quite off i agree there absolutley.

@valhalla this is only a hotfix patch, a bigger patch is coming soon.

Yeah we're gonna be legends/////

The changelog replying is enabled, so players can say what they think for the changes that were implemented on the game.

A mod will move and create a new topic so we can discuss it further.
