Game killer, Are the xerj unreasonably strong?

Is it just my impression or does the Xerj race have a massive advantage compared to the other two?

In my opinion their contaminate technology which allows them to basically steal your mine provides them with a an advantage so great it's nearly a game breaker.

Defending your resources against terrans or droids is relatively easy: you can spend your resources by the time they get to your planet, build caches or just send the resources between planets just before the attack(s) reach you. So raiding as a terran is often times useless especially over long distances when the other player has plenty of time to take evasive measures.

However none of these strategies works when facing a xerj opponent as even though you might save your existing resources the other player will contaminate your mine and basically cripple your economy. In fact a xerj player with a modest fleet can easily grow huge in just a matter of weeks just by constantly contaminating other players. (I've seen this happen). He can basically get more resources per hour in by contaminating than another race can get by owning a large number of planets.

Also if a stronger xerj player wants he can basically make your game unplayable by constantly contaminating all your mines on all your planets if his fleet is stronger than yours.

This provides a massive handicap in my view for the other races and gives the xerj an unfair advantage. This realisation allmost made me want to stop playing the game.

What are your thoughts on the matter?

the contamination effect is just when a queen is stealing your resouses from your planet and its just a certain percent. when the queens cargo is full(50000) she leaves your planet but there can be more than 1 queen at a time but the percent dosent change. yes this dose make the zerge a little more powerfull than the other races if played right but thats to be expected if you have played the other starcraft games (dont say this isn't starcarft because it obviously is).

A little more powerfull? I think that's an understatement.

First of all when it comes to raiding the advantage is overwhelming. As i said before as a terran or a droid the chances of actually getting something out of an attack are slim to none considering the long distances involved and the long time period it takes to reach the attack destination. Plenty of time for the defender to protect his resources one way or another. However except for having a stronger fleet than the attacker (which is unlikely, players don't like to engage in kamikaze attacks) there is no protection against the xerj contamination.

Also if a stronger xerj player takes you into his sight and decides to fuck with you he can basically make your game unplayable. A player with a stronger fleet can infect your planet(s) and take away your resources. And do that time and time again, everytime the queens get full and returns he sends them back. Considering he is an already in a stronger position than you by also taking away valuable resources he ensures you will never be able to challenge him ensuring that you will become his farm untill he gets bored or you get to annoyed to play anymore
