    U guys now gonna tell me it this happens to u too:

    when i have valks, in usually the mid-late game, valks can fire a thing..

    I think it is because there are already many units on the map, but still taht sucks like hell, i pay lots of cash to get them and then they die like birds?

    wtf is that?

    Valks don't fire, usualy due to mass lag. Blizzard realy screwed up with the valk. when there is alot of activity on the map, they can't fire the 5 missles each. Thats alot. Especialy in Madness maps, or money maps does this thing happen.

    I've only had them not fire in Stacked Cannon d. Where the newbs just get only money & cannons & not heroes. The map maxes way to fast & you lose.

    Since the original title of the whole thread was 'Valkyries get blocked', and discussion seemed to stray to firebats, I split it into that. Because there was a lot of flaming going on in the thread, which we try to keep in The Asylum or Void, I sent it to The Asylum. On-topic, and mature discussion is usually kept in the StarCraft section which is why it wasn't sent there, but thank you for the advice pan.

    If ya guys stick to the harder, low-mineral maps, you'll find their effectiveness multiplied tenfold in almost any MU. They own wraiths and mutas in groups of 4 or more with wraiths as backup, desolate any number of scourges, and though aren't too effective vs capital ships, it can really help if there is a group of them... does a little residual damage to the ships your units aren't currently attacking, allowing them to die faster when fire is finally directed on the remaining forces.

    Awesome for killing large clusters of unsupervised Overlords too! :)

    Yeah. Chances are the only maps you'll really hit max sprite limit (the point where sprites such as those used for Goliath missiles and Valkyrie rockets) is in money maps and big UMS maps like cannon defense. And by the way, I made a cannon defense map--I knew about the sprite limit so my version (which is now protected) doesn't have heroes like Goliaths, Wraiths and Valkyries. You can download it here if you want to try it out.
