StarCraft II: Q&A Round 19
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story
The 19th Q&A focusing on answers to fan questions about StarCraft II, Blizzard Entertainment's long awaited sequel to the original StarCraft, is now available. The game will pick up the storyline a few years after the time of Brood War and introduce competitive new multiplayer action for players to enjoy.
1. Will the Protoss be getting any mechanism for healing their units or repairing their buildings? Head over to the link below to read the rest of the Q&A.
StarCraft Forums: SC 2 Q&A Batch 19
There are no plans to give the Protoss any healing abilities, especially since their shield regeneration rate when out of combat, is more than twice the rate of the original StarCraft.
2. With the new physics engine, can explosions affect surroundings? (like hurt or push units, destroy doodads, etc )
Explosions will not be able to push units, but they can destroy doodads. In fact, destroying certain doodads will be vital on certain maps, to get access to expansions or other strategic locations. Furthermore, explosions will not be able to push units because it would affect gameplay and balance negatively, in having units be knocked off cliffs, be stuck in unplanned locations, or ultimately have units disoriented where the player cannot control them.
5. What do the Protoss eat? (where do they get energy and mass?)
Protoss gain nutrition from sunlight, or at a pinch, moonlight (which is just reflected sunlight anyway) by absorbing through their skins. They can go for extended periods without absorbing sunlight. What little moisture they need is also absorbed through their skin.
