1. What was the main reasoning to shifting the Hydralisk backwards one technology level? How does this affect the Zerg early-game, especially since the Zerg will have absolutely no anti-air units before the Hydralisks? (gamereplays.org)
Actually, the Hydralisk has been brought back down to Tier 1.5, giving Zerg early...
Yep, you've read the title right... You can make your own custom race in starcraft 2 ;p I believe you can do this in Warcraft III with the WC3 map editor, but you cant have them selectable in the race selection screen in the lobby... you have to make the race selection interface when the game has staterted by.. example.. having peons walk through...
One of the latest changes the Devs are trying for the Nomad is replacing their previous stationary Mine Drone with Spider Mines. The Spider Mines behave the same as Spider Mines from the original StarCraft. It now also does 50 damage plus 50 additional damage towards armored units. Instead of only having 3 Spider Mines, the Nomad will be able to...
No Gameplay blog this time, just plain Q :(
1. Do Protoss Immortals get killed when a Nuke explodes next to them(seeing as the Hardened Shield blocks all high profile attacks and that a Nuke is definitely a high profile attack)? (Battle.net) Eragon320
In term of units, the only units that will be able to survive a Nuke will...
Giving the Zerg mobile defensive structures feels a lot more right as this ability opens up many more aggressive strategies in both Zerg mirrors as well as combined with Overlords generating creep to push these defenses up towards the front lines. Furthermore, there definitely is something about watching defenses crawling around that just seems...

1. What upgrade type (assuming these are returning) is the Viking using? Vehicle or ship? (Or perhaps infantry?) (TheWarCenter.com)
The Viking is built from the Starport again and will use ship armor rather than vehicle armor.
2. What will Zerglings be able to do against new...
In the latest Starcraft 2 Q Batch that karune released, a few changes have been revealed such as the thor being an anti-air unit and now reverted to being an exclusive to attacking ground targets only.
Vikings should be the core air superiority for the terrans and will now be built from the factory instead of the starport. High templars now have...
The Starcraft 2 team have updated the official Starcraft 2 website with a biography of the central character in the lore, Jim Raynor.
For those of you who don't know, Jim has been voted as one of the best hero's out of any game to be released and Chris Metzen has hinted that Starcraft 2 will turn him into a much more heroic figure than he...

1. Does the Nomad have all the abilities an SCV has? (Of course it has its own abilities, but it would be interesting to know if you can at least temporarily replace lost SCVs with Nomads in a game.)(broodwar.de)
No, Nomads will not have the abilities of a SCV. The...
Executive vice-president of product development Frank Pearce talks WoW 2, StarCraft 2 and Diablo 3
Blizzard is sitting pretty at the moment. Having just announced that the world's most popular MMO, World of Warcraft, has got even more popular, with an astonishing 9.3m subscriptions across the world, the US developer can afford to employ its famous...
Koreans are not only better than the rest of the world at StarCraft (save for a few), but also at asking questions to Blizzard representatives about StarCraft II.
This latest Q&A Batch features questions from our fans in South Korea. We've made sure to include an additional question to cover any questions that may be repetitive from previous...
Most of the questions on this Batch's Q&A are about how blizzard will deal with the ever conflicting Realism vs playability/balance.
The Devs and I are all reading and we love answering community questions. Every week there are always exciting new changes we want to share with everyone. Granted, many of the changes may not stay in the game very...
The previous Q&A were mostly about Terran units and Terran-related developments. This time it's the Protoss' turn again.
When blizzard wants to stay quiet about something (e.g. ZERG developments for Starcraft II)... they talk about the weirdest questions like "what do protoss eat?"
Chat with Devs: Since the Terran Cobra took over the Protoss...
The blizz devs have been quiet recently regarding the developments from Stracraft II compared to the previous weeks... and now when we least expect it, they give us something to "w00t" (i dont know why karune loves that word so much) about.
Chat with Devs: After bringing up much...
Batch 16 Q&A Updates from KARUNE For this batch, we continue to make headway into the latest development changes. Over the coming weeks, we can expect to see even more Terran related updates, as the Dev Team are working hard to have them play distinctly as the Terran Faction. In this latest chat with Lead Designer Dustin Browder, he was...
few questions and blue response for SC2's Batch 13 Q&A
except for the question/response about the system requirements, the rest are IMO are kinda useless
This batch we'll answering some more of the fan site questions that have been submitted to us. In addition, I was able to grab some time from Kaéo Milker (Producer) and Tony Hsu (Associate...
the protoss mothership got tweaked again and lost it's Blackhole skill (prolly reserved for the hero-class mothership that is avaiable only in campaign mode?)
in return, construction of the protoss mothership is not restricted to 1. The AoE projectile disruptor-like thingy can now be casted anywhere around the mothership within a specific range....
In our final BlizzCon video, we have for you the entire StarCraft II Demo panel, including Single Player, Multi-player, and Q&A sessions. Dustin Bowder and Rob Pardo were part of the panel and went over the full Terran arsenal - the first time anyone outside of Blizzard has seen a number of the units showcased.
