    I always wondered where the troops come from in the Barracks. Lights flash, then they step out. Like, wtf? Were they just made by robots or something?

    Frozen embryos that were forced into an obscure accelerated growth pattern and taught the basics of killing and talking during that time?

    What stops you from building a Command Center next to minerals or geysers, 0mgz n3wbs; you don't play by rules like that in a war/battle, :p.

    here's something to think about. a BC is almost as big as a starport, but they can build it inside and when the whole thing is done it pops out. how does the starport fight that huge battlecruiser?

    and also lifting off a building should use up a lot of gas so why doesn't terran waste gas when they lift?

    Hmm. Because Air units are in the air? Then again, that doesn't stop SCv's from repairing BC's or Wraiths in the same way. Maybe Zerg Air Units are too advances tissue wise to be healed by Medics.

    Any movie with a SWAT-like strike team, and you see 6 or 8 people rappel down from separate lines at once. A hatch in the bottom of a dropship can open and 8 lines can drop down, with 8 marines.

    Oh, here's another related one...a siege tank, ultralisk, reaver is way bigger than a dropship, overlord, shuttle, yet two of them can fit it it. Wtf?

    how come a tank cannot attack air? i mean wouldn't it be obvious that they would add a machine gun on top?

    The Arcolyte Siege Cannon should be able to be aimed at air units, and give a sort of 'luck shot'', it can hit or can't.

    and one more thing, even if somebody knew a cloaked unit was nearby, wouldn't it be smart to just shoot everywhere. i mean you would either scare the *beep* out of the cloak units or kill it

    hmm i never tought of that.

    here's a thing since protoss hates the zerg as much as terran, why don't they combine technology? i mean give the terran some shield and give the protoss irridate give the terran stasis field (ghost+stasis :) ) give them cloaking technology :)

    hey since a wraith can cloak why can't a BC?

    I think because it's main energy output was intended to be used for the Yamato Cannon. :)

    Zerg Units probably feel pain, to the cerebrate/overmind since they have 'control' over the broods and structures. They likely feel it in some form or another.

    I always thought that a Nuke should make a shockwave of irradiate based energy as well as a central explosion, that way the nuclear part seems more....nuclear. :p

    LOL! You guys are pretty funny and clever, most these things i never even had a second thought about. but to tell the truth, im glad that these things make no sense becuz its a GAME, and if everything had to make perfect sense, well then this thread wouldnt be here and the game probably would be less fun...but good ideas guys

    If units reacted to pain I'd be very upset because Plague would make your Marines run around in circles screaming.

    okay why did it take so long for the terran to get medics? i mean, they left their bats and rines to fight until they die. zerg can heal everybody, protoss gets more shielding what about terran in the orginal? only fix machines.

    Most of what came in the expansion was in StarCraft original, but they took some stuff out so they could make an expansion. I would guess the Medic was one of those units, but I can't be sure. I know that Desrt and Ice tilesets, as well as Dark Templar and Valkyries were in the old SC.

    I thought this was a retoricle thread, meaning answers aren't meant to be here... It's just a "wonder/ponder" thread, is it not?

    Anyways, ever wonder why, even if you know the unit is there, but you don't have a detector around, you can't attack the unit?!1!?!? OMG, CHEAP. :p
