Reminds me of the old LOTR RPGs just with EUDs.

Do people really enjoy the gameplay of killing pre-placed units across the map rather than a system that spawns monsters dynamically and uses Junk Yard Dog?

I guess it depends if you prefer a stage clearing based RPG map (Old school such as this one), vs more like Open-world RPG



None.

You realize this system has been in place since the beginning of Starcraft, right? Hundreds of maps have used it. It's really not any different than having randomly spawned units walk around, especially if you get the pre-placed units to patrol or something.

You don't know what you're talking about Demon. :lol: Preplaced units just stand there and chase when shot. You can kite them and they just stop following you and return back to their initial preplaced spot. They have basically no AI and are no challenge.

Junk Yard Dog combined with patrol orders trigger and they chase you to the ends of the earth.

I didn't say one was better than the other. I said you get a similar effect to JYD if you patrol the units. Also, not everyone might want a unit following them forever. That could just be an annoyance rather than an actual challenge.

Zoan -- what was weird was if you give the buildings to another player the computer player keeps on building it even though it doesn'y belong to them
[11:35 pm]
Zoan -- not any unit, but I did try move buildings
[11:35 pm]
Ahli -- tried moving any unit?
[08:57 pm]
Zoan -- i just tested. you actually just cant move unfinished buildings I guess. Tried moving all players and players 9 -12, tried giving players then moving. nothing works if its unfinished, but as soon as it's finished it works.
[07:54 pm]
Zoan -- Voyager7456
Voyager7456 shouted: Zoan no
;o what else do they do?
[07:49 pm]
Voyager7456 -- Zoan
Zoan shouted: so like disable all buildings but two. I mean what else is the computer player gonna do, won't they necessarily just buiild whatever they can?
no
[05:43 pm]
Zoan -- idk
[05:43 pm]
Zoan -- At least you can set the hp and build time of terran buildings so that repair never actually conteracts their hp loss while on fire..
[05:42 pm]
Zoan -- also I think you can set the hp and build time of a building so that it literally will never complete it's build, iirc.
[05:41 pm]
Zoan -- maybe if they're allied to all other players, so they don't try to do something like attack with their scv I guess.
