Creep SC2 Game1

Early image of the creep

Creep was able to grow faster if a special ability was researched at the evolution chamber in March 2008.[1]

  • Toxic Creep
    • Ability Cost: 100 Energy Terran SC1[2]
    • This ability enabled the queen to "poison" a small area of creep, injuring enemy units over that creep.[3][4]

Creep used to cause damage to non-zerg buildings it came into contact with, and it might have opened up possibilities for new creep pushing strategies.[5]

Non-zerg buildings used to take 3 damage per second[6] and eventually would be destroyed.[5] However, this was removed as it caused problems in allied games.[7]

  6. No, creep damage does not currently stack. At the moment, creep does 3 damage per second to an enemy structure. The rate of damage is of course subject to further balance. Karune. 2008-05-22. Does creep damage stack? StarCraft II General Discussion Forum. 2008-05-22.
