Re: The thread about hand cavalry

I am noob but I really agree with Hazza here.

One suggestion that I haven't seen mentioned: What about nerfing goon speed, perhaps to just .5 more speed than cav? It's so dumb when 20 cav have to run away from 5 goons; goons are the only unit (that I can think of) that can beat an infinite number of .....

How would you feel about 30 card decks?

I think it’s pretty annoying to lock yourself in (or out) of some strategies at 1:30 in the game before you’ve had time to scout anything your opponent is doing. Also, I think there are some cards which may be marginally useful, but are just not as important as the 700w, 5v, etc. stuff that HAS to g .....

What is better in lag, melee units or ranged units?

I see people raging on all sides; some rage when the opponent makes melee units in lag because they can't kite, but on the other hand others rage when they themselves make melee units, because they sometimes freeze in lag. So what do you think?
