DevelopmentEdit

The following section contains information from a previous version of StarCraft II which is no longer valid.

In a September 2008 build of StarCraft II, the observer did not require an observatory to build, making it available earlier in the tech tree than in StarCraft. It was upgraded at the null circuit.[1]
