Is there a way to buy HotS electronically? I already have Wings of Liberty.
You're underestimating the apm discrepancy between zerg and terran in this situation. Widow mines are super easy to use. Not tactically, but mechanically, they're very easy to set up, it doesn't take many clicks/keystrokes. From the zerg perspective, you've got to to sack a ling/overlord, then you have to send in the overseer and other units. Now take into consideration that you don't know where all of the widow mines are, and it takes some split second reaction time to see the widow mine revealed and sprint away your units immediately and that the terran has many, many more mines than you have overseers, and you've got quite a sticky situation.Widows are boss, but they're no replacement for tanks, especially once you reach mid game TvZ, Overseers will make it a problem.
Normally I'm one to have a few laughs over people expecting good stories out of Blizzard (I don't think they've ever actually had a story that wasn't a storm of stupid cliches and ridiculous dialogue), but... yeah, HotS was just terrible. Mostly because, hey, let's retcon the entire origin of the zerg because LOL wooo! Even though we went out of our way to explain the original origins of the zerg back when HotS was first being talked about (or maybe it was just before WoL was released, can't remember). Either way, nice work Metzen, you managed to make Kerrigan need to be rescued in her own story.Y'know I wasn't expecting much after the big dumb action story that was Wings of Liberty. But Heart of the Swarm's plot is so insultingly bad I'm actually very curious about if and how they'll fuck it up more in the next.
Warcraft I and II had excellent stories. Not perfect, but pretty damn good.Normally I'm one to have a few laughs over people expecting good stories out of Blizzard (I don't think they've ever actually had a story that wasn't a storm of stupid cliches and ridiculous dialogue)
