Whats you favorite race...
« on: July 28, 2003, 09:08:50 pm »

and why.
I like the zoq fot pik because of the general idea of the girl that helps u, they boy that argues with the girl, and the one in the middle that doesnt say anything or do anything.

Thraddash are the best.

Good background music (and even better, if you take remixed music from "Pages of now and forewer").
Good ships (at least in human vs AI fights).

Great attitude.
Intersting cultural concept (strenght prevails, and there is costs of progress).

Unfortunatly, it's sad that you you must become enemy with them to get Helix (IMO the only bad thing in SC2 plot).

Not true, you can get the helix without becomnig their enemy. Just trick the ilwrath to kill them all.

Anyway, my favourite race is the best! They are the smartest, the most brave, nobel and recourseful race! Who are they? The hunam!

I'm gonna brake the rule with a combo, just beacuse. The Synth, for their sleek efficency, and the Umgah for their happy-go-lucky way of life.

Don't have a special favorite race...I love the funny races,like the Orz..the Umgah...the Zot-fot-Pik,they're all great.
The Yehat are very fun too,not only because I love to fight with them,but they also speak funny,that accent.
And the Thraddash,I agree with player1,their background music is so cool.

And the Syreen
...those bodies man!

Herm...well...I don't like the Druuge!

I love the Chenjesu. Ship and species.
They are philosophers, highly alien. All comments on them, save one, are highly complimentary.
The Ur-Quan may claim to have far superior philosophy, but  that's highly doubtful given the culture of fear in which they live.
The Broodhome is cool -- a combination of artillery and close-up power that even outdoes the Dreadnaught (though it can't take the same punishment as the Dread).

FRUNGY! FRUNGY! FRUNGY! Grin

Actually, Thraddash are kind of fun too. They blather a lot about their thick-skulled history... and they make excellent target practice for my Stingers!

Personally, I like the psychotic nature of the Ur-Quan, both of them. And my best friend is practically a spathi: he'll do anything to not die, up to and including killing the other dude. I've seen him smack this huge rugby dude in the balls, then smack his face left right center, just so that he won't die. Spathi alright.

It's alla bout the Orz.  No other race in a game like this has ever been able to genuinely scare me.

The Orz. All through the first time I played I was always wondering what they are up to and when if and how they will betray me.
I always thought the game was somewhat about THEM.
They can easily destroy a fleet of Kzer-Za or Ilwrath ships and those were the hardest enemies for me then.
And they are funny too.

Either the Kor-Ah, Umgah or Pkunk, The Kor-Ah just because they are really cool, the Umgah because they are fun to call evil blobbies, and the Pkunk, because they remind me of my favorite cereal-froot loops.

Yehat rules!

Cool name, great music, great culture. They also adopted the Shofixiti and they are predators all the way...
