Observer rework


This series goes to show how dependent Protoss is on micro.

Something has to counterbalance the amount of micro involved. Not a buff but something like a change in mechanic, something to lessen that dependence on micro. You’ll notice that in these matches, micro is enabled by vision. Protoss has some good scouting abilities but they’re all counterbalanced by the fact that the scouting itself requires micro. Why not make it less dependent on micro? Something like: remove observers from robo facilities, make it so that each nexus spawns one observer. When the observer attached to the nexus dies, that nexus automatically starts building a new observer (45 seconds build time maybe? requires no resources). Its just an innate ability of the nexus. That not only frees up desperately needed robos, it requires less micro and incentivizes protoss to keep expanding. That’s already something that they need to do to keep even. Maybe we can have it as an upgrade to the nexus, so that protoss dont get a free observer early game.
