I don't consider this a bug, since in SC2 Chrono Boost DOES work on Zerg and Terran buildings too.

But I guess if it's something you don't actually want to happen than it is a bug. xD

It was a bug actually, because it can be used on a non-protoss building but doesnt give any bonus, So it was a waste of energy.

Es el mod que a mi me gustá más, lo malo es que StarCraft es limitado pero mira lo que el ha logrado hacer con el juego, yo lo encuentro increible.

RavenWolf I find your mod being the best one out without being a total conversion of some kind, you have also always succeeded in maintaining it as StarCraft some how.

Any release date?
By the way does anyone know why did Blizzard make nuclear missiles to take supply in the first case?
