Don't know why I bother to post, I really dont see the point in playing cata at all now really.
Anyway, I stoped playing cata about a month after patch for quite simple reasons - my fave side, beast, was killed off.
We all know the reason - the worker - the single reason why beast in my opinion suffered a servere heart trauma after the patch.
Lets put it simple:
Beast worker is Slower, more expensive, harvests slower and carried much much less.
You can check the .big files if you want.
But are there still viable strats? is the ebast doomed to getting killed early on by missilyte swarms?
From a story point of view, i heard that "beast was new etc but taaw had been mining for centuries, hense they are more efficient." This is rubbish, as the beast assimilated the somtaww parts, and thus computer tech as well, so they should be able to do as well, not worse than taaw.
This may just be my ranting, there may be strats for beast that work. but personally, i think that hw>cata by a factor of about 1000.
So, what are your takes then?
