Blizzard had just announced their multiplayer redesign proposal, and this is my first impression.
INnoVation’s victory over Dark using a new mech style with Hellion and Cyclone has definitely got everyone talking about it. I will discuss how it works and some of the key defining features.
Cyclone is not the first unit to come to mind when you think about how the new Legacy of the Void units change the game, but this unit has been in the spotlight in some recent games. Incidentally, these new styles coincide with the announcement of the proposed balance changes, and I want discuss how that may revolutionalise the role of the unit.
Blizzard announced their proposed changes to the multiplayer mode in Dreamhack last weekend. I took some time to digest the content, and I think it says a lot what Blizzard want to do. There are several things I disagree with on the problem identification stage.
There were quite a number of mech games in TvT recently. While this is a reason to celebrate if you love mech, you shouldn’t get too optimistic just yet.
