If I'm in a team SC2 game, can my non-Zerg allies build on top of my creep?

  • Hah, it would be nice, but that's not the Zerg's philosophy :) They are hostile to other races. I always laughed at the absurdity of the idea of a terran medic in SC1 healing a hydralisk or lurker, or any other interaction between zergs and other races.

    IIRC the Warcraft III creep-like ground cover, the undead "blight," could be built on.

Unfortunately, no, not last I tried with Terrans and Zerg.

This is particularly bad on one of the 3v3 maps in which there are 2 nice natural expansions right next to each other - if a Zerg ally takes one of them and you're not Zerg, you will need to also take it fast (before the Hatchery spreads just a little creep) or else not be able to at all.

It also makes defending with Bunkers rather difficult if a friendly Zerg starts spreading creep - which is something he really does want to do!

  • Yeah, I used to like that map until I started playing Zerg. I usually end up double-hatch in the main on that one because I don't want to impede my teammates that are building up defenses.

    Correct, Also, note that there is no such thing as "friendly creep" all creep is just creep. There's nothing distinguishing one player's creep from another player's.
