hmm another question,
about thor unit(terran) what he do ?(what his specialty) ground or air unit ?

and about ghost's EMP what it does ?
Thor is a powerful unit against air and ground. He has a powerful ground attack coupled with a strong, splash air attack. The only downsides to the Thor are its size and speed. It also has an ability called the 250mm strike cannon which does a ton of damage to a single unit or building.

EMP is an area of affect spell that drains 100 shields from all units in the area and also completely drains all energy from all units in the area.

At what point do you guys usually upgrade the cannons on those? For the cannon, do you generally use it on battlecruisers? That ability can only be done manually too I assume?

The only time I've seen the cannons used in competitive games is against Ultras because I believe they one shot them. You'd have to ask a competitive T player though, I'm P. You can only use the cannons on ground units btw.

Thors VS BC's = dead Thors

I mean thors are strong against air but BC's just have so much health and they can lay down tons of damage with Yomata's. Bc's are considered thors hard counters.

Battlecrusiers hard counter on Terran would have to be Vikings if you have enough of them.

Yup, not only their health, but their natural 3 armor means Thor's air attack only does 3x4 instead of 6x4.

Vikings though are nice. Very versatile if you can get the micro down with them(Not as good micro as concusive muraders) but you can go on some supply blocks with a pack of Vikings against Zerg easy.


Combind with the fact that you can get them mass produced quiet quickly and you've got your self a nice versitile army. I wouldn't say it's as fast as going an MMM/1/1/1 though.

Vikings are very nice. Probably one of my favorite new units. I just hate going up against them.

So I'm about to start my campaign on hard just to see how I fair. . .

First time I played through I really really liked this, much more content as for as the single player goes, and the Single player was worth the money for sure. Maybe I'll get into multiplayer more instead of just watching commentators on youtube. . .

This guy is giving me hope that I won't completely suck.

The 250mm cannons used to stun Ultra's, which is why they were used. That was nerfed during the beta. If you have +1 weapons for Thor, you actually deal more DPS just letting it attack normally. After firing off the 250mm cannons, the Thor has a long cooldown, so if you use it, it's recommended to use it to finish off a target instead of starting off with that attack.
