    There are changes to the Predator skills which are not in the changelog or development news. Thought I'd post them here.

    The top four Pred skills in order of acquisition are now as follows:

    # Longbolts
    # C6
    # Radar
    # Blink

    Cloak has been removed

    Blink? What? Doesn't sound good o.o

    At first I was "wtf", but now I actually like it. Longbolts and C6 come sooner :)

    It's the same standard blink that Protoss Stalkers have. It's actually quite effective, especially when combined with the Pred's inherent cloak ability.

    We have Predators Blinking to get out of the hairy situations they get in. Now predators can hide on the little entrances the Stalkers and such take to enter Apollo.

    Its kinda like Terrain Transversing, but with less of an issue, since its not like you can really do much to cheese bosses etc.

    I have nearly 5,000 editing going back nearly a year. I average 16 edits a day (Yes, thats right.) Most of these however are template and behind the scenes. At nearly 400 pages I just can't keep everything up to speed by myself.

    What more do you want? You're dead.

    You help team by being alive even after you die. Every team can use an addition damage dealing thing, and a psuedo tank at that.

    Preds used correctly can save teammates from hits/scout for items(H3)/kill a signifigant amount of lower level mobs that try to troll teammates.[hr]
    they dont need cloak to do any of that

    Yeah but they used to grow with each level, and I miss that.

    That and they're decent for Priority Target hunting. For example picking out the lone Devourer in a mob, one of the few Hulks, etc. One of the reasons I pushed for the plus vs. Armored. A good predator is a priority target hitter. You don't just leap into the general melee and facetank whatever comes at you necessarily. And without Auto Attack or Godfield you don't just put your Predator on Follow then go make yourself some popcorn or something while you wait for Linh's Heroes to come and give you some marines.

    give pred 100% of all credit and exp so ur rewarded for helping your team even after dead.
    and to balance the mass cloak remove :S that's the best thing about pred.
