".....and to all enemies of humanity, seek not to bar our way. For we shall win through, no matter the cost!"
Mengsk made two mistakes during the Fall of Korhal, 1) did not mass equip Warhounds, and 2) did not use any widowmines

They are there in Heart of the Swarm and Legacy of the void campaign so they are a part of the universe even if they were scrapped from the multiplayer mode.

Warhounds were originally going to be a Terran mech unit in HOTS beta. It cost 150mineral, 75gas and 3 supply. It had an spell of missiles automatically at enemy mech units. It was later removed because Protoss had basically no counter(95% mech unit) and Zerg had no DPS powerful enough(220 HP)

Blizzard should consider reinstating the War Hounds for the next installment. We barely got to know them in HotS Campaign.

Yeah. They were pretty useless against the player as well.

No they were not taken out because they were useless.

They were in fact so efficient at being anti armor unit that they were overly effective for their cost and production speed, not to mention extremely good at sniping off high armor units like the Thor, Siege Tanks, Marauders, Colossus, Immortals, Ultralisks, Roaches.

To the point that they would replace the Marauders, which would be extremely redundant and boring to use at a higher game meta level.

That's not what I'm saying. Warhounds do more damage to mechanical units and little to biological ones. It was removed because you would never see them in TvZ games, but they could quickly make any TvP game one-sided. It created an imbalance.

"Yeah. They were pretty useless against the player as well."

Not what you said from previous comment?

Looks like someone who couldn't even counter Broodlord or didn't know that Phoenix could move and attack simultaneously now ALL of a sudden knows about advanced meta play in TvP...

Seems like just Googled for direct answers :)

I know how to deal with brood lords. They are just really annoying. I know that phoenixes can fire while moving, they just don't seem to do so for me... which is also annoying. I know I said that Warhounds are useless, though I didn't say that they are completely useless. They are just unevenly matched against Kerrigan and her biological army. If they were used against Raynor in WoL Or possibley Zeratul in Legacy of the Void, they would have a much greater affect. I

..then let me just throw this on out..assuming you didnīt heard of it
if you like TA you might be intrested in a game called planetary annihilation
itīs considered a spiritual successor similar to supremecommander/forged alliance
so itīs going to be on a scale like total annihilation but also on a planetary scale

It was, I totally miss it! (Pun not intended, haha!) You should absolutely check Planetary Annihilation, it's an upcoming Indie game that will bring back what everyone loved about TA and more.

Funny, I failed to find my comment the first time around, so I reposted it. Still need to get used to the comments section of DA, and after all these years, I really have no excuse. x)

Oh god I miss the old story telling. WOL campaign was fun but I had to pretend this was an alternate universe.

After all you did as the cerebrit you got an off screen non-mentioned death. That and the whole running theme for BW was that Kerrigan chose to be that way and once you took away all her restrictions and set her free she actually became an even bigger threat. I just hate to see a great female character get once again turned into a damsel waiting for her male hero to save her(A character who we specifically vowed to kill her at the climax of his own story arch).

And amnesia is a cop-out for actual character development.

Ill still play the campaign (Because I want splitting banelings, whoot!) but I ignore the story and its gut wrenching dialog.

Very nice piece of art BTW

YEA man broodwar had such an epic story telling. I keep going back to watch Mengsk's inauguration speech, which is extremely well written. Even the ending to broodwar where Dugael kills himself was just full of pathos. Hate to say it for blizzard cinematics now where it's just a few dialogues and all CGI effects.... Even Diablo 3 missed that super dark tone of story telling...

no more 'We journeyed East... ALWAYS into the East..." : C

Hehe, Blizz just said they wanted to revamp the Widow Mine one more time to make it extra-effective against Protoss.

Glad to see someone remembers the Warhound. Fabulous work replicating the cinematic palette. ^_^

Another reason why they likely did away with it is because It was essentially a more powerful marauder out of the factory instead of the barracks except it could attack air with its missiles if i recall correctly. Epic piece, and i agree i wish they could have fixed it somehow, but I see what it got the can.
