CarrierA lot of information is being released at BlizzCon, but the most drastic and interesting update yet is the return of the Carriers, and removal of the Tempest from StarCraft 2.

ScLegacy’s LordofAscencion got to meet with Blizzard’s developers, and was told that “Tempest didn’t feel right and that there was too much of an emotional connection with the original unit“.
And rightly so – the Carrier is a symbolic unit of the Protoss, just like Siege Tank is of the Terran.

This is the second unit to be completely removed from the game, after the predictable removal of the Soul Hunter.

Additional Protoss Updates include :

Twilight Archon has Feedback ability, and will hover (not have legs, meaning the Archon will not trigger mines).
Star Relic is now a ground unit now known as Stasis Orb.
Mothership now cloaks all ground units underneath it and appears to have weak anti-air.

Visitors to this year’s BlizzCon will receive a bag full of goodies when picking up their convention badge.

The bag may include, among other things:

The Murlock Suit: A special World of Warcraft code that can be redeemed in-game, providing one of your WoW characters with the Murlock Suit.

Beta Key: Access code to the yet to be announced beta test. There is no guarantee that the key is StarCraft 2’s beta, but the chances of Diablo 3 being announced are slim.
