Same with Oracles and Banshees. Fast Banshee or fast Oracle are easily countered if you can spot them in time. It doesn't mean Banshees and Oracles are useless, it just means that cheesy play with these units is not viable against more or less solid players.
That said, DTs are certainly not the "winning" unit. It's hard to think of a situation when getting or not getting DTs means win or loss. But they certainly help in many cases. Especially against Terran which doesn't have mobile detection except for Raven (which is very expensive) and can't cover large amount of map with detection.
Not too sure if this is in the right place for the topic, but I couldn't see anywhere else to post it, so feel free to move it where it should be, but anyway:
I'm considering buying StarCraft 2 and Heart of the Swarm (yes, yes, I'm extremely late to the party for this game, sue me :P) and I have seen the Dulux Digital Edition on the Blizz website (think it's like £40 or so). Would it be cheaper to buy it this way, and if I do, will I get a free upgrade for the collector's edition of HotS?
Can't help you if you really want the digital deluxe edition, but usually I'd try online retailers other than blizzard first, they usually have lower prices, sometimes WAY lower if you are lucky.

You have to buy each game separate regardless of the version.
In case you were not aware, with the free trial version, if you group into a part with someone who has the full version or HotS it will temporarily bump up your version to teh same one, so if you have battletag mates who already own HotS etc. you can try it out before you buy...
Just in case you didn't know.
The establishment too is relatively happy when different groups of desperate people point the finger at each other because it prevents blame being correctly directed at them. Whenever we are looking for the solution to a problem we must identify who has power. By power I mean influence and money. The answer is not for us to move further from one another, crouched in opposing fortresses constructed from vindictive words. We need now to move closer to one another, to understand one another.
Wow, MC played so good in the second series against Thorzain, blinking to avoid widow mine damage, even managing to dodge a widow mine shot while right on top of the mine, so sick.
I believe Sc2 is 50% off right now and Hots is 25% off, so if you do want to get it now would be a good time
The new Carbot about the Nydus worm, I genuinely believe that's one of the best episodes yet. By a good margin.
Guys, can someone share your personal protoss builds to play with? I just realised that i never play from the book, i always do some random stuff and keep being in 1-15 seconds late to something (starting upgrade, transitioning, getting base and so on)
Thanks for changing my mind about DTs. I've tried to separate enemy 'toss army from their detector, then flanked them with 12 DTs killing almost all zealots leaving archons exposed, then i just moved DTs towards enemy third and killed all workers while his army was busy.
But on the other side, when you face terran player, they are just "meh".

Good idea to make MMA vs Nerchio the last match. If it was first and MMA would lose - 50% of people would stop watching.
Bah, net went out just as MMA vs Nerchio was about to start, so now I have to suffer through loading the twitch VoD...
I can watch a 1080p video on youtube without having to wait for it to buffer, but trying to watch a 480p video on twitch? NOPE, gotta buffer that every minute.
Feels like it's 2000 again and I'm trying to watch a video on a crappy school computer after classes...

I'm glad I'm not the only one with Twitch problems. I thought my ISP was starting to cheat on my connection speed.
Poor MC Was rooting for him but there's only so much you can do with blink stalkers. Even if you're MC.
