comment What does creep affect?
@tzenes My comment was not intended to switch the perspective, (although I do believe it is useful to think of the Queen on creep as being normal and off creep being the change) but to clarify the way in which the Queen is an exception, which you didn't: for the Queen, the speed difference is greater than 30%. I could have phrased my comment better to do that, sorry. Also, workers move the same speed on and off creep? I do not know how Hydras behave, although I'm betting you can fill us in on that as Dave requested. :)

Rather than moving 30% faster on creep, the Queen moves much slower off creep.

comment What is the effect of the DLC campaigns on multiplayer?
I'm removing my previous comment because it contained significant speculation, which we don't like. I can say as a software developer that developing/maintaining 4 play experiences is far more money, time, and difficulty than developing 3.

Enjoy the screenshots. Note the correction: The effect is +50% for the defenders!

If you wish to unload all of them, put your mouse over the top left unit and click once for each unit. The transport's contents are displayed starting with top left, so when that unit leaves the others shift, and you can click again without having to move you mouse.

comment Which first two promotions to assign for siege weapons during massive attack?
As much unit strength as possible is not a bad way to go, especially in the "I'm not sure what to take right now" case.

I will post screenshots tonight. (I have another reason for doing so anyway) Just in case, my answers are always from playing with Beyond The Sword, although very little of the core gameplay like this changed between vanilla/expansions.

comment Where can I download a shared userdata folder which has unlock all feaures?
That is a much more clear and legitimate reason. However, that means you already have one! Take your data folder from the old version and paste it in the new one. Since Steam upgraded everyone to the GOTY edition from normal, I know they are compatible. Everything I had transfered just fine. For reference, see gaming.stackexchange.com/q/6973 someone else has already tried this as well.

Several of my friends had "ah-ha" moments when they saw a paused replay of them being in an amazing position compared to an opponent, but they did nothing. They still don't scout early, but they occasionally send a unit or two outside their base to see what the weather is like.
