StarCraft 2 Beta: Yo Mommaship Got Nerfed

… and the first StarCraft 2 meme was born. It all started with the recent StarCraft 2 beta patch, which, along with the previous patch, hit the Mothership with a massive nerf. Its movement, price, build time, food cost, abilities, shields and hit points have all been affected.


  • The build time for this unit has increased from 120 to 160.
  • The food cost of this unit has increased from 6 to 8.
  • The number of shots fired by this unit has decreased from 8 to 6.
  • The shield of this unit has decreased from 400 to 350.
  • The health of this unit has decreased from 400 to 350.
  • The acceleration of this unit has decreased from 1.3125 to 0.3125.
  • The deceleration of this unit has increased from 0 to 1.

Then, something epic happened.

    I think the Mothership was nerfed so hard to discourage her use somewhat so that the rest of the race gets some play and can be evaluated.
