> Did something happen in the last 5 months where air got buffed? I never had a problem with this until now. I can play, I’m not spectacular or anything, but I was in champion league my last two seasons before I left, Johnson’s season. Now I loose to air, and everyone is doing it. I see it every game now. It’s seems like an obvious problem. If they reverted anti air buff, then I’m done.
No. Air has been nerfed literally every time an adjustment is made to air vs. anything else interactions. Air had their damage to wolves and reavers nerfed, then core infantry had been giving immunity to banshee bomb AoE while at the same time getting a massive boost in damage against air.
No offense, but the devs are literally holding the hand of people struggling with air swarms. The problem is not air vs counter units, it’s a problem of positioning and communication.
Air are glass cannons. They are fast and people use the mobility to their advantage. But with that comes a large degree of predictability. You know they will do one of two things: backdoor your base or confront your army. They will NEVER split their forces half and half. Doing so would be suicide one way or the other.
I am not saying this to sound mean. I am saying this as someone who realized this was a flaw of mine as well: stop being lazy and rely less on “all units” command. Either learn the new micro commands or just use local units more.
I know it’s tempting to mash all units for engagements but all you are doing is gaining nothing but a microsecond of expediency in exchange for literally opening the back door to your house, hoping they don’t fly 40 banshees in to destroy your world.
The answer to mass air is proper macro/micro knowledge.
All of this said, we have enough threads on anti-air. Please use those. Thanks.
There are plenty of solid players on this forum who will take the time to help you get better at the game and, if you don’t believe their claims about AA, they will even test it with you and show you. We have a pretty helpful community here so if you are skeptical, take them up on their offers. Video evidence has already been documented and tested in a good environment on AA-air interactions and it was safely concluded that AA does NOT need a buff. If anything, air has been nerfed a bit too hard over the seasons.
The sole exception to these interactions are Decimus boundless siphon/fury banshees. I would take it a step further and say even those aren’t a problem because he is using both his T4 and ultimate abilities on passives. It’s his identity.
