    EMP is not that effective since science vessels are gas eating monsters(225 gas) and plus, you need to upgrade EMP shockwave which is 100mineral, 100 gas. you can't make that many science vessels in T v P game. EMP takes 100 mana. <- that's disadvantage. and even if protoss units got hit my EMP shockwave, they can easily retreat their units. and shields can regenerate too. shield battery is pretty cheap if you make them, your units can regenerate their shields fast.

    P.S.- EMP's range looks really big, but it's not. it's just Blizzard's another trick to scare, and fool people.

    The graphical effect of EMP is totally misleading, that's why it's so easy to dodge it. If my units are a few inches away from the actual blast, toss units will not lose their shields

    I'll test the range later...but if the graphics for the emp is too big...then this game is messed up.

    Double post eh?
    Error message I bet..

    When you test this spell, see if it actually targets a unit. Another reason why EMP is easy to dodge.

    Do you think calling me names is gonna make you more right. It only makes YOU out to be a jacka$$ when you're proven wrong. You clearly didn't even read my post and just said EMP doesn't suck because it doesn't suck. You proved NOTHING.

    I doubt how many people'd use Queens, EMP shockwave, Dark Archon...etc.

    My point was that shields are easily depleted by anything regardless of damage type. And they'll most likely be damaged before SVs enter the fray. Not to mention that nobody upgrades shields where toss certainly upgrades the body.

    In the same forum as you, stupid
    Emp is badass vs most toss units that are massed mainly because they can't move too freely with all the other units blocking their way.

    Against fast air and speedlot, any smart toss user will know how to dodge it. But if he moves it a second late, you would probably get half his army.

    Has any one gotten all three races with just the Dark Archon and built a successful base?

    Reason:
    because the game would never have started if it wasn't for the scv.
