    in my oppinion Battlecruisers. But i am to lazy to do the math for the 8 interceptors and upgraded dmg... All i know is they both get owned by scourges. So when fighting zerg dont use to many capital ships.

    i say carrier because the enemys can get confused with the interceptors and will attack them instead of the carriers letting the carriers stay longer. And then the interceptors can do multiple damgae cause they all each attack different tagets

    No question. Yamatoe cannon knocks out all but 40 shields, and the BC has more health anyway. :-/. Plus the Carrier cost extra time and money for interceptors.

    depends what u play either money maps or regular maps
    i guess carriers would be better for regular maps but cruisers own in money maps unless of course the other player uses static field on them :/

    Not if the carrier was controlled by a human player.

    Carriers are better. but Carriers have weakness too.
    I wouldn't make BCs if my enemie is making Carriers.

    Makes no difference. Same damage, same health.

    O yeah, i forgot to say "micro". Carrier traveling speed are faster than BC, interceptors attacks farther than BC can shoot, and even better, interceptors attacks while carrier retreats. Carriers will beat BC with Hit and run.

    I don't know why but I'd say Carriers if they are fully upgraded. 6 damage with 8 guys. 6x8 = 48. Wow!!:D

    For one yes of course I'd respong to voice my opinion. And as for the rep "going odd" if someone has a diff. version they can't play the replay man..

    Try it yourself and see which is faster. Watch the replay.

    Edit:
    You need to have patch 1.10 installed for it to be viewed properly. I'm sure you guys have it by now.

    1on1 BC wins.

    5on5 BC's win.

    12on12 BC's win.

    Carriers do more 'mass' damage, but BC's are much better all around. Especially with the Yamato cannon.

    Battlecruisers can't stand a chance against Carriers.

    If you watch the replay, you would notice how nearly impossible it was for the BC to shoot me down while my interceptors wrecked him, even though he had shot me a few times, i had to stay near the BC so my interceptor will still attack it. The only way the BC could have gotten me is either firing Yamato cannon at me or "try" to destroy the interceptors.
