Hey guys, I wish I could generate a poll on this low-budget Blizzard forum to see how you guys would petition & think about changing the current Human 1500 icon, Jaina, to this:
Here are some reasons stated to support this change:
<#1> Humans already have an icon of a mana-dependent chick, the 150 icon sorceress, and there is no reason behind unlocking the most prestigious human icon as the carbon copy of a biddy.
<#2> The Human Guard Tower represents the fundamentals of the Human race in this game depends on. It is the most stable source of trademark to represent the tower-loving nature of the human alliance.
<#3> In 99.77% of decent to pro-leveled games, a human player would erect an arcane tower at a very early stage in a game to protect the peasants from a hero harass.
<#4> Most likely, one or more guard towers pop up as the game progresses, stabilizing the defense or enhancing the offensive options for the Human player.
<#5> Ivory towers can also be bought from the Arcane Vault, which also demonstrates the dependent characteristic of the Human race to these crucial structures.
Furthermore, let me demonstrate and pull out some replays from my HU tower rushing career, which would wholeheartedly reinforce my previous petition for the 1500 icon change.
If requested, I can post a detailed build order / tips in my second post.
<#1> 3 MIN WORLD RECORD HU TOWER RUSH: http://highper.ch/?id=3%20MIN%20WORLD%20RECORD%20HU%20TOWER%20RUSH
This almost-perfect tower rush utilizes the chokepoint of an enemy base early in the game for the guard towers to decide the game in mere 3 minutes.
<#2> HU Tower Rush GG: http://highper.ch/?id=HU%20Tower%20Rush%20GG
aka "All your base are belong to towers"
I tower into the enemy's base, taking over his gold mine and the game continues on from there.
Quoted from the game:
Q u o t e: (12:57 / All) Uzbad: the definition of 'fa.ggot'- dumbsh.it who tower rushes
(13:02 / All) Bromeister: LOL
(13:03 / All) Bromeister: SO MAD
(13:06 / All) Bromeister: THANKS FOR THE BASE BRO
As I promised below, here are the rest of classy HU Tower Rushes that you should download and watch.
<#3> 8 Min HU Tower Rush GG NORE [Quality]: http://highper.ch/?id=8%20Min%20HU%20Tower%20Rush%20GG%20NORE%20[Quality]
My personal fav from this list, this replay demonstrates the perfected, brute force of a HU Tower Rush.
<#4> 6.09 Min HU Tower Rush GG: http://highper.ch/?id=6.09%20Min%20HU%20Tower%20Rush%20GG
aka "No hero 2v3"
Green, my ally decides to do this own thing, and despite the fact that I don't make a hero in this game, yellow and I win it for the team with towers, lots of grunts, and good micro.
<#5> LAST HU GAME RETIRED LIKE JORDAN GG NORE: http://highper.ch/?id=LAST%20HU%20GAME%20RETIRED%20LIKE%20JORDAN%20GG%20NOR
Another Quality replay, as this marks my last career HU game (after unlocking 25 icons for all races, I'm going to stick with random for tower rushing). Purple (NE), whose base I towered, tries to retaliate by towering the north side of my base, but doesn't realize that I was following him with my MK and fails miserably.
