pelicans control awkwardly and require a relatively large apm investment for a normal player. you could buff their health 5x and they would still see very little use by the average joe. even at my level of play there are very few players who could sacrifice the factory ouput, apm and everything losing them entails to reliably use pelican strats, pretty much no matter how tough they get. personally I think the pelican should get some more buffs, guns on the sides and a spot in the t2 air factory. maybe that should be a new unit actually. just leave the old pelican alone if that's the case. the patch has gone live and the pelipocalypse hasn't hit yet as far as I can tell. why are there no replays demonstrating this grave imbalance yet?
