    It's true.

    Anytime a Zerger does that against me as Protoss, Scouts just rape them. Besides, Protoss ground owns Zerg air, so Devs are almost useless in ZvP.

    Who uses Devs seriously?

    Mate, they are called Heavy Support Air for a reason. First, they can take quite a punch. Second, their spit is awesome. Not only does it delay the enemy's attack rate, but it also lowers the armor. Get 2 or 3 along with Mutalisks and they'll do wonders.

    as was said already, it's a support unit so it sucks on it's own. it's true that they're rarely used on ground maps, but they're seen more on island maps if z lives that long. I think the only time I see them used against p is when toss fast expo into sair/reaver into carriers as a support unit .

    dev/muta/scourge owns .

    I've explained why they own you in another thread. :)

    Splash + spores = more damage to more units at once + slower attack rate for other units = Devourers pwn you.

    Yes but i've never seen Devourers actually help to own an army, they are just more to kill in my mind :)
