New Probe???

Post  Zergling on Tue Jul 16, 2013 9:08 pm

2 health, 4 power, 2 speed

The probe's offensive ability would set up an immobile mothership core that shoots allies.  Allies that get shot gain 1 speed bonus for a second.

The probe's defensive ability would set up an chrono field that speeds up allies inside and reduces cooldowns.  

Reply if you like the idea!

Hey Zergling!

I've thought about the Probe before, and here's my take on what the unit should look like:

First off, being a worker unit it'd probably have 1 Power (going along with the SCV and MULE). Either 2-1-5 or 3-1-4 would probably look right to me. I was thinking one of its abilities would have to be to construct something, and I think a Photon Cannon that periodically created dodgeballs for you and your allies would be really cool. It'd be a high-priority target for your enemies since it'd be constantly be reinforcing your team with dodgeballs.

For the second ability, I was thinking it might create a wall of Pylons or something, but I like your idea of buffing an area with faster cooldowns and speed--more region-centric play is always good.

The Mothership Core ability is interesting--it's not something I've thought of before. I can imagine a slow-moving ally flying around and helping allies, with the enemy trying to hit it with lobs to bring it down. It's an interesting thought!

Instead of a wall of pylons, what if the probe could build a Proxy Pylon and had the ability to warp back to it once it is built?

I actually really like that idea, though in my head I see it more like this:

Unit uses defensive ability and a small (invisible to enemy players) marker is created where the unit is. When the defensive ability is used again, it teleports instantaneously to the marker and the marker disappears.

I think that'd be an awesome ability! I can't say that the Probe is a unit I picture it on, but you can be sure to see it some time in the future!
