    Hydralisk is probably kept, maybe slightly altered. I'm thinking expansioon units will largely be dropped, same with some secondary casters and support units. don't see Vultures making a big come back.

    yeah...nobody used vultures outside of the campaign, seemed like.

    i think the goliath will stick around, and i hope they tighten up the looks of the siege tank....it looks totally gay right now.

    devourers need to be gone, and the new rendered mutalisks (if that's what they are in the screenshots) are the most awkward things ever.

    They didn't get rid of them though.The Immortal is just a new name for the dragoon.They look slightly different but only slightly.

    Yep, still have the four legs, but now have a more visable cannon instead of just shooting out of the middle of it.

    I can see the Valkyrie either getting renamed and revamped. The Valkyrie never worked half the time anyways.

    Valkyrie sucked.

    Vultures should stay because they rape Zealots faces. I'm just thinking from a balance perspective.

    Valkyrie was actually rather good. Just didn't work well because of not enough sprites, that's all...

    The concept is fine.

    Yeah, and if they take out vultures, of course they arn't going to add a unit that would take it's place as more useful.

    I'm thinking Goliath will end up more mechish.

    The Goliath might end up being alot bigger than usual. Check out the siege tanks, they're ****ing huge now.

    Unfortunately, Dark Archons don't offer too much strategic power and they are expensive - which is why they need a giant makeover or be dropped.*

    Dark Archons were only good for feedback and maelstrom anyways.

    Mate, there is one reason I love Dark Archons so freaking much:

    Feedback.

    That alone is more than enough to make them worth their price.

    I'm serious when I say for the most part Expansion units don't translate well to sequels. there is a reason they only ended up in the expansion. Secondary importance units. Except I do see medics making a return.

    I can also see the Lurker and the Dark Templar staying there.

    The Corsair, however, will probably be replaced by the Warprey.

    The expansion units won't disappear, they'll just be replaced.

    I think the Lurker will return. That unit ripped holes in the enemy. It was a beast. And the fear Lurker 619 drop was intense!

    Dark Archon has it's ups and downs, but was useful as hell. Dark Templars are just diesel, I doubt they will be going anywhere. So hopefully if they keep Dark Templars than Dark Archons will get to stay :)

    I'm pretty sure Dark Templars have already been replaced by the Stalker.
