Swarmhosts need a fix immediately. If you abuse swarmhosts properly versus mech you basically get an autowin. Every day i stream SC2 and play Terran on stream, every Zerg i get abuses swarmhost because they know it's essentially an autowin vs mech.
"avilo don't go mech then."
Ok, and that's why most people quit SC2 by now. Swarmhosts either need to be deleted from the game, or severely nerfed to the point they don't shut down an entire style of play.
Let's all be honest - swarmhosts never should have been added into SC2 during HOTS. They almost single handledly are what killed SC2's entire viewership and player base.
People can argue what they want here, but the fact is this unit is a joke game design and game balance wise. Things like this in SC2 literally make our community and game look like a laughing stock compared to what SC2 used to be.
I tell my stream this, but i literally have played Fortnite/LoL games where people will recognize me, ask me how it's going, etc, if i still play SC2, and i always ask them if they play or played, they always fuckin have the same anecdotal response - "i quit teh game when they made swarmhosts the entire game" "i quit the game when they made pylons able to shoot my ramp" "i quit the game during brood infestor"
I know people here aren't ever going to wake up because it hasn't happened in the last 4-5 yrs. You just accept the game in the terrible state it's in and think making mass swarmhost versus mech is fine and won't matter, but i tell you it actually matters a lot for people that still play the game. There are people obv posting here that still give a fuck, but the sad truth is the majority already left the game and don't care anymore because they see none of it is ever being fixed.
So again, let's discuss swarmhosts. What changes can they do to fix/delete this unit?
I would say, make them a light unit, and make them 2x more expensive. This unit should never see the light of day in any casual, ladder, or professional game. There is no justifying it even being in the game to this day.
