Hunters vs. Farmers

Screen Shot

Hunters vs Farmers is a test of survival and teamwork. As Hunters(dark templars) you must suppress your enemy, the farmers, and survive until the end. As a farmer(zergling) you must rise up against your suppressors and defeat them to claim victory. As a hunter use your abilities to seek and trap the farmers and use your resources to buy mercenaries to help you kill the farmers. As farmers gain income through larva and build defenses to protect you while you build up your army.

If you die as a hunter you will be re-spawned as an immortal, being much weaker than before, but able to still help search for the farmers and if one dies as a farmer they will be re-spawned in a random spawn point around the map, but beware dying means you lose your buildings and units.

    I just started the newer version, let me see if it's better than the older version I played and I'll let you know.

    Well I never got to play the newer version, sorry can't give you any feedback. Maybe when the beta gets back up.

    ok thanks for the feedback, what do you think if i increased the speed of the units used by the farmers? Possibly in addition with the ensnare.

    I played this on the beta and I want to say that I like the game alot however there is one problem that I think is very important. It is very nearly impossible for farmers to kill a good hunter. The hunters move as fast as the dropships, so as long as they stay ahead of the ships they can survive. If they stick together, they can easily snipe marauders if they get surrounded then run away taking very little damage. I wouldn't mind seeing farmers attacking units nerfed a bit if we could get a fungal growth-like ensare effect. I even wouldn't mind seeing hunters buffed were this to be put in. The ensare effect can have a high energy cost or long cooldown or both anything to make it slightly easier to keep the hunters in range of my attacking units for a few seconds.
