With the use of magnetic flux generators and through some simple modifications to our existing building schematics, we've found we can utilize structures that already exist in our bases to assemble the frame of a siege-class combat walker—a construct that some of my colleagues insist on calling the Terra-tron. The Terra-tron is best deployed as a last-ditch effort to hold an important location on the grid. Currently the cost of operation is a bit of a problem, as energy conduits and pipes become dislodged or severed and leave dangerously exposed electrical wiring, steel framework, and sewage systems. However, let me assure you that we are working diligently on new waste-containment systems that should eliminate this problem and get our buildings back up to code in the near future."Click here for more screenshots, dialog, and videos that show the "whole blasted base" in action. As a long time fan of StarCraft, I can't wait until they finally release it (I think end of this year). Of course this is April Fools joke by the folks at Blizzard. I like the use of Transformers as a reference for a cool design. This would make for a fun un-lockable in solo play. Thanks to Monz for the find.
