You guys know this thread is on topic, right? It should be in general discussion.

Same here...

XCHAGGERS

Aw, I'd forgotten those little guys. They were one species that I felt were actually fairly funny and thought out.

I guess everyone's instant reaction was "WTF?" when they saw the sc3 sa-matra had nothing simillar in design than the one in SC2.

It is as though your species' brain is too small to hold a simple thought
such as, WE WILL KILL YOU FOR DISOBEYING!
This is not a complex idea.

Yeah, I immediately knew we were in trouble. But I persevered.

And then I went to the Syreen colony and barfed.

I continued until the game broke. At that point, I used it only for hypermelee; and then I got sick of that poor travesty, and destroyed the disk. I had to do without until I discovered UQM.

Why don't all races have point defense lasers?

I always assumed it was the Precursor Ship, since it was surrounded by an Arilou, Mmrnmhrm, Syreen and Yehat... as well as what looks like a Spathi but is probably a starbase (or "The Starbase", even though it doesnt resemble it).

I agree it looks a lot like the Sa-Matra in the video, basically identical, IMO. Just doesn't make sense that it would be the Sa-Matra in the context of the picture, unless those Alliance ships were attacking it and there happened to be a base in the background.

But I thank whoever said it, "trying to interpret box art will only end in tears". I think that pretty much says it.
