I see these character battles more like fanboy battles . It is interesting though.
Aliens are pretty fleshy. That'd completely rip through a drone or a predalien.Thanks to the remarkable musculature of a hydralisk (4,000 muscles compared to a terran's 629), the penetrative force delivered by a hydralisk spine is quite astounding. A single spine can easily penetrate 2 cm of solid neosteel even at maximum range. Under any circumstances, massed groups of hydralisks should be approached with extreme caution and preferably siege tank support.
You're relying too much on game-balance statistics. Anything that big will be able to close distance quickly, but it won't be able to turn well, and it certainly won't be agile. An Ultralisk is like a huge bull elephant, something its size that was built for speed and agility would hopelessly outmaneuver it.I still think Zerg will win overall...having played most of the games, Aliens aren't that special when comparing them to zerg units. I don't agree with most of your comparisons, especially ultralisks. They are actually very fast. I know you played SC but let me remind you that they are as fast as Zerglings when they are upgraded. They could easily decapitate the queen in a head on collison, and they are agile and armoed enough to withstand a lot of hits from anything (they have what, 9 armor? Come on, thats more them a Battlecrusier). They aren't that slow with their kaiser blades either.
An Alien Queen stabbing an Ultralisk. In the head.And the comment about being too slow to avoid an Ultralisk strike is just blatantly incorrect. Actually written properly, the quote would be "An Ultralisk is far too slow to avoid a stabbing tail strike to the head from an Alien Queen." Because THAT'S actually true.
