Though I do worry about the 'removed' units... I need my Battlecruiser and Carrier 'fixes' damnit!
No need to worry, as you can see in the link above the good old Battlecruisers are still there and I've also seen the gameplay video and am pleased to say that they still have the Yamato Gun.
Now, as for the Carriers, I don't know, but I hope they haven't been removed from the game. I've heard that the Protoss will have a Mothership unit, though.
The Mothership is the massive ship in the third and fourth gameplay trailers posted by LIAMYD, and from what I saw it's an uber-unit, but definitely not a Carrier.
In one of the previews I've read on Gamespy, they mention that the mothership is certainly not that strong. It actually would have been destroyed easily by 3 Battlecruisers. They only made it stronger then it will be for demonstration purposes.
"I'm not even angry. I'm being so sincere right now,
Even though you broke my heart and killed me.
And tore me to pieces...
And threw every piece into a fire.
As I burned, it hurt because
I was so happy for you." - GLaDOS
Of course there'll be heroes, the only two questions are:
-will there be hero units in skirmish/custom games?
-will the heroes be as in WC3 (classes that level up), or simply a super strong commander unit (like in Dawn of War)?
I'm not certain about heroes being in custom/MP games. In Gamespy's previews, the developers clearly stated that the game was supposed to be focusing on multiplayer and competitive play. Adding heroes makes for another layer of balancing, which only makes things more difficult. Heroes should not be in custom games, except for those using "Use Map Settings".
