    beta, I'd like to play you sometime. I want you to kill my carriers with emp and lockdown. I want you to beat my carrs as terran and we'll see how EASILY you'll beat them. I don't normally make them against zerg so go hydras and dark swarm and see what I'll do to you.

    Terran vs carriers (even if only carriers), it's not with lockdown, that's for sure. Unless you have like 12 ghosts, which is a waste.

    Wraiths and valks are a lot better. Specially if you kill his observers.

    Terran yes, very easily, Zerg no, even without Dark Swarm, mass hydras kill interceptors so fast its not funny.

    Carriers don't do any damage if you can't control them well :umm

    Valks aren't very good vs Carriers, though.. That would be like Corsairs vs Devourers. I think.

    In that case, everything sucks since storm owns ALOT of things. Oh yeah, carrs can evade storm taking almost no damage.

    Maybe you don't realise it but 6 storms is ALOT to waste on Carriers and Carriers can just micro around them.

    Temps alone suck vs carrs(temps are just too weak and slow) and scouts are only good vs unsupported ones.(goon or sair support will nulify that).

    It's good vs anti mass carriers.

    Anyone who makes only carriers will easily get owned by storm anyway ;)

    Do you have any suggestion for all three races, Phoenix? Instead of just disagreeing?
