    storm crows are AWSOME anti air!!. i was playin a 4v4 game that was lastin a while and the enemy started to go air so i decided to test em out since we were probobly gonna win anyway. they kicked ass! There light armor makes them take very little damage from the piercing attacks of almost every other flyer. and they have pretty good damage. in addition to that they only cost a few more resouces thatn an archer. i had 3 storm crows take out like 5 or 6 griffons by themseves, it was awsome. people should use druids of the talon more, i have never played anyone who uses them,i n addition to storm crow they ave cyclone and fairy fire(autocast) which are both also VERY useful!

    I think they're the best anti-air air unit in the game. So long as you upgrade them all the way. (For more hit points.)

    The most neglected unit I've ever seen has been the Banshee. Nobody uses them ever. It's funny.

    DoT are fun to use with a human ally using Mass Teleport- It only costs 100 mana and got no cooldown, so u can TP in using the druid and get 24 mortars, then MT back out to home in a jiffy

    They can take over anything other than Heros and level 5+ creeps. To get air units you just web/ensare them first.

    You have just stumbled upon a BattleTech fan.

    Run while you still can.

    The Stormcrow/Ryoken is my second favorite 'Mech, the Warhawk/Masakari being my first. The Stormcrow has a great balance of speed, armor and weaponry, making it one of the most balanced 'Mech choices for any mechwarrior.

    Timberwolfs and Stormcrows were my favorites in MW2.

    I never played Mechwarrior, but it sounds like a great idea for a game style if you ask me. What if Blizzard made Goliathwarrior or something? :p

    Not based on any of their current franchises IMHO.

    Agreed. Blizzard doesn't produce money games. They produce great games that just happy to make money because they're so great. I don't believe them to be a company that would attempt to capitalize on their previous franchises unless it made for a good game.

    true, true... I think WoW is gonna be like a true 3D version of D2...

    I wanna see a Starcraft-2 game with the option to go down to the battlefield and control individual units, like switch from RTS to FPS by pressing a toggle button that way youd have more control over units and have more options for games- think, an SC2 FPS ums map, or a SC2 RTS ums map

    the Hero Arena map in WC3 would be so uber if it was FPS
