Even if the Super Melee section of the DOS SC2 Manual says that Orz Marines "receive training" in using the gravity whips, seeing as how the Orz are a single individual, such a statement is at least strange.

We'd better remove this controversial sentence — after all, seeing as how the named section had to describe the new ships without giving out anything about the races that build them, the (intentional) mistake in this sentence shouldn't come as a surprise. Valaggar 13:33, 20 April 2007 (CEST)

Even if the Orz are a single entity, we don't have any idea how autonomous the "fingers" are. We don't even have to go very far for an ample analogy. I'm a single entity, but I can train specific muscles to perform in certain ways, like training the tongue in order to learn a new language, or (more similar to the Orz possibility) training my hands and fingers to play the piano or type. Especially in the case of typing, my fingers have been "trained" to hit certain keys. So I don't think it's too much of a problem to say, even if the Orz is a one entity, that certain "fingers" of that entity have been trained to do certain things like Gravity Whips. The verbage does not necessarily contradict the "fingers" picture of the Orz. --Fyzixfighter 21:46, 20 April 2007 (CEST)
Of course, but "receive training" sounds like somebody elso trains them. Anyway, it's better that that odd sentence was replaced, since it was also plagiarized.
Also, OUR body parts need training since there are the muscles that must be trained, while with Orz things may be different. Anyway, as I said, it's very well that you changed that old version. Valaggar 08:01, 21 April 2007 (CEST)

How do I launch the marines? Pressing my secondary button doesn't do anything except let me turn the howitzer. - Frankie
