    Which did you choose in the campagin and why? I chose spectres because I didn't want to lose someone from my crew, and it would be cool to try something new.

    Ghosts. They get a +2 range upgrade (or is it +3?). This causes them to become ridiculous powerhouses. I believe I managed to beat the Moebius mission with only ghosts because they could kill anything before it got close. Plus, they are permanently invisible.

    Ghosts are permanently invisible? well I just bought the upgrade for spectres that made cloaking require no energy.

    I go specters, only because I feel like keeping Tosh around. Besides, I never really use ghosts/ specters other then when I'm bored.

    Spectres. Because I'm one myself and because I don't think should be helping the Dominion i.e Nova. But it doesn't matter ghosts or spectres cause later on and the last mission I never used them. And as a Spectre I decided to gain the Spectre portrait.

    I took Nova's side because Horner and Raynor said it themselves: «if we're to win this revolution, we've got to be sure of our allies», and I was kind of suspicious of Tosh. Turns out Ghosts lose their EMP usefulness because there's only one versus-Protoss mission left, "Supernova" -- in "Maw of the Void", the disintegration "aura" makes it a bad idea to use Ghosts.
    Ghosts might be nice versus Zerglings and Marines when using that range upgrade, but Spectres can deal with them equally well because of their AoE stun + damage (Psionic Lash Ultrasonic Pulse), I think it even stuns Ultralisks although they should, supposedly, be immune to it. On top of that, they deal bonus damage versus Armored, which is welcome to quickly kill Overseers.
    I ended up going for Spectres when I played the campaign a second time.

    Just want you to know you're are from the few detectors Rui that see me. Others don't see cloaked forumers :> Anywa glad someone's reading mine. I thought Tosh would be helping like on the last mission meh it didnt make difference who you chose. Oh and the Spectres AOE stun doesnt work on Kerrigan.

    Spectres, because they look cooler. Also the story gave me no valid reason to actually trust an agent of the DOMINION.

    They both require upgrade.

    Anyway, I choose Ghosts for range. And Spectres... Psi Lash is expensive and basic AoE stun is pretty lame...

    The basic AOE stun is great, sure, but there's a problem with it requiring energy. Ghosts with range upgrade don't run out of bullets in any case.

    Besides, Nova's mission was so much more awesome.

    Nova's mission? I think you misspelled Tosh.

    Oh come on. Tosh's mission was just a punny AoS. Nova got a real thing! Plus Concumption is lame, while Nova got mind control and snipe.

    Spectres are the best cause they got some insane mind blast move with insane range. Permant cloaked + mind blast = easy wins on brutal. 2 blasts can kill detectors easilly. They can also be used as a cheaper battle cruiser for taking out units (almost as good as yammato cannon) and I think they deal bonus to armored (unlike ghosts which deal bonus to light).

    Ghosts however may be good for non cheesing brutal. Their EMP will be useful against all those annoying protoss templarsyou face.
