|Which unit is the best-SCV, Drone, Probe, or the Zerling? Read one guy's opinion and see if you agree.|
The Best Unit of All Time: The Almighty SCVs My name is SCV, I am the unit that is well known for being the most useless, and the cheapest of all. If you know about Starcraft, we are worth 50 minerals. As a physical laborer, it's hard for us to earn a lot of income. Nevertheless, those of us who get to build the buildings are considered lucky. The 4 SCVs in the beginning who were forced to mine for minerals are considered the unlucky ones. Whenever a battle begins, we always get killed first. In Starcraft, you need a lot of minerals to build items, such as Barrack, and Factory. The gamers hold stereotypes against us. First of all, we are not robots. We're only humans riding inside of a robot's body. We are humans who control the movements of robots called, "SCVs." People misunderstand us because we don't leave blood stains when we get killed in battle. However, like other units, we are human too. Just because workers like Probe from Protoss, and Drone from Zerg, gamers categorize us as only useless workers, that doesn't mean we aren't human. Keep in mind that we are different from them. First, if you look at Probe, they are the ones who are pure robots. You must be out of your mind, or have a problem with your eyes, if you think Protoss is a living creature. I would say that you have to be attacked with irradiate if you don't see Protoss as a living creature. Go ask Medic to restore Probe. Probe is just a machine programmed to build and to mine. Don't compare them to great technicians like us. Let's see now, for Drones...Drones are like cloned animals with only one cell. They don't have an ego or a self: they just work until they die. We are in no way like them. We, SCVs, are more advanced than those scums. In order for us to go on the battlefield, we have to pass the hard training and strict education inside the Command Center. We, the SCVs, are elite technicians compared to other useless workers like Drone and Probe. Thus, as a result, our energy is sixty, whereas, the Marines, who use Stim Packs are only worth forty. To tell you the truth, the ranking between the Marines and us is same Privates. The only difference between them and SCV is that Marines are in the combat sector, and SCVs are in support and supply sectors. That is why our duties are different, even though we are in the same rank. Marines are useless without the almighty Medic. Never underestimate the power of SCV, unless you want to be fried in our welding machine. If you look at the rest of the units, and look at us, we are the only ones who can actually melt those minerals. Think about it, not only even the most expensive Battle Cruiser and the most powerful weapon, the Yamato Gun, can destroy a single piece of mineral. If you ever tried to attack the minerals with any other weapon, except SCV, you computer might say something like this, "Unable to attack," and the SCV can attack the minerals when Yamato Gun can't. Don't you think we are the most important unit of all? If you think so, you can applaud us. Oh, by the way, Probe and Drone can also mine minerals. The main difference between them and us is that the Probes use Psionic Rays to split minerals, and Drones are stupid enough to dig minerals with their tiny claws. Zerg and Protoss are like the most important race because they do not know how to use civilization's conveniences. There are no other races, or units which have as high an amount of energy as us. We deserve to earn respect. Ghost is only forty-five, and Firebat is only fifty. I don't even want to mention the Marines. Medic has the same amount of energy as us, but they are women, so they get special “protection” from the Command Center. That is why Medics can't attack us. The reason why our energy is so high is that even the Command Center recognizes our strength and agility. Even the Zerglings can't follow us unless they have upgraded their leg speed. The Zealot, also known as,” The Master of Swords,” is obvious. With those heavy swords in their hands, it's hard for them to catch up with us. We are so flexible, so that when the Marines get attacked by the Zerglings, they can pass through the mess without any scratches. Our duty is to supply and to build and to repair other units. But one thing we don't understand is why the gamers send us to the battlefield. They should send out the Marines, or Firebat, or Ghost. When we are sent out to the battlefield, we are very eager to kill. However, the orders from Command Center are totally bizarre. We don't understand why we should build Bunkers or Missile Turrets. It's like totally impossible. But somehow we manage to build them. Some people use us as a reconnaissance or as a patrol unit. They could use the great machine called Comsat, but in the beginning, the gamers preferred us not to get on patrol to the enemy base. It's like we are a multi- purpose unit. We provide minerals; we build structures, repair high class units like Seize Tank and Battle Cruiser. However, other race's workers like Drones and Probes; they can't even repair a single thing. We are proud of ourselves, because we do tasks like Seize Tank and Battle Cruiser. You may call us useless SCVs, or give us a bad name. However, for one thing, we can do a lot of things no other units can do, and we are proud of it. Today, our force is going to face another battle. I don't know which task I might be given, but as usual, I'm putting my welding machine into the minerals to give supplies to my precious Commander Center. Tweet
