    One day I was playing a public game on some map with the bird critters... what ever they are called, the game lasted a while and I had DA with mind control, so I mind controlled a critter and used it to scout and look at the enemies base, it was just as effective as an observer except it didn't have cloak. The person didn't realize this until the end of the game, when I countered all his unis... :-D

    Any thoughts on this?

    Yea, I did that once. It got killed by a turret, though. The human may not understand it is yours (even though a look at the mini-map shows it is), but his forces know, and they shoot...

    Because he saw a creature and didn't even thought twice that it could be a mind controlled thing. Would you think it?

    I've played a map where me and my ally just mc'd all the critters (there was a LOT) and one of the guys we were playing freaked out when like 50+ critters came at his base. We told him we were uber hackers and he actually left. Then his ally left and called us "moroons"

    haha.... well its useless to mc them coz his units will auto kill them. but parasiting them is a great tactic. really good sight of the map and most players march right by them without a second thought.

    Speaking of critters, did you know that by continuisly doing rapid clicks on one during about one minute will make it blow like a nuke? Doing no damage, but, god, think of the terror you provoke on your enemies.

    MCing critters is a waste of time. 150 mana plus shields gone. Then there's the fact that the enemy will kill them BECAUSE it's YOURS. Parasiting critters, on the other hand, is fine.

    MCing them is fun. But parasiting them is more effective if you're playing to win, and have mana to spare ;)
