you know a unit is good when it can both be repaired and healed
hellbat will be changed i anticipate. blizzard usually gives players/metagame a chance to adjust, but i think it has to get changed before official release
although beta is ending soon, they should change it soon... :s
on the subject of hellbats, david kim just posted this about hellbats about an hour ago
We're hearing your feedback on Hellbat drops being overpowered. We've also been watching all the tournament games and as many highest level pro streams as possible.
They're really powerful, but we're still seeing a lot of players who really haven't had the time to learn to deal with them yet.
For example, in last week's MLG qualifier matches, a top end korean Zerg player lost 3 of 4 matches just to Hellbat drops. However, in this specific series, we were definitely seeing flaws in play. The Zerg player had roaches in 1 single ball and moved to defend vs. each dropship coming into multiple locations. Against this type of Zerg defense, just the normal Marine drops would have done just as much damage.
If a nerf is needed, we'd probably increase the cargo space on Hellbats to 4 so that we can only affect this specific scenario. We'll do our best to determine what's correct for this strategy, but please remember we're looking into every major community concern and carefully analyzing them.

Hots is fantastic so far and went better than probably anyone expected. 21hour launch chain events was damn good and launch it self went smoothly. MLG was fantastic breaking viewer records aswell, hots competetive play already looks better than wol and it just got out, so excited to play it.
I removed tournaments that no longer exist such as IPTL, Assembly, and MLG Arenas.
There is a large announcement happening at 7pm pacific tonight that will reveal what is being rumored as a copy of Riot's LCS that they do for LoL. Regional play will be promoted and focus on the Korean e-sports scene will apparently be better.
We'll see exactly what is going down and how things will change.
If you guys have any suggestions as to how I could update/upgrade the first two posts let me know. I'm thinking of turning the tournament winning thing into one big picture through photoshop that I'd update, rather than using text/images in a kind of weird mashup. Otherwise I need to think of good ways to include more websites and content and whatnot.
