    I hope you strictly play money maps, because I don't see how you could possibly think Valks are useless.

    Every LT game I play, I'll always get at least 4 valks to back up about 8 wraiths in any game. Air dominance is key in expanding. Those valks can mean the difference between life or death in any TvT or TvZ game when engaged in Air to Air combat.

    Don't believe me? Watch this replay. I'm not sure if I'm fend0r or coRtALoS in this replay, but I'm the top center Terran player. ;)

    valks are one of the best anti-air units in the whole game. they're not the best, cause i think scrouge or devourer are better than valks

    Alright, well I mean you posted a somewhat serious question in the forums considering you made a new thread on it. Just wanted to make sure anyone else reading this didn't immediately think they suck.

    Yeah, they're not too effective vs Carriers or BCs, however they own most light air units and really are one of the most effective anti-air units in the game. Get 4 or 5 of them and even scourges won't touch you. ;)

    Valks, along with the green cloud thing can be setremely deadly, especialy against overlords VS zerg.

    devourers suck in my opinion, but when they attack, the slower the enemy's attacks. but they still suck in my opinion.
