Regen Golems
« on: May 05, 2013, 08:43:10 AM »
So, the new regen golem is awesome. Perhaps a little too awesome, considering I just saw one crank out a botnet golem for about 40% of its health (stopped me from save scumming, at least). Anyone else feel they've been a tad over-buffed?

Having a regen golem definitely inclines you towards blobbing more. Perhaps we should bump the AIP a bit?

That's what I said!

Hmm, I wonder if that's a bad thing.

That's awesome. So theoretically you could have two regen golems and have them resurrect eachother when they died?
I can already tell this is going to be a roller coaster ride of disappointment.

But if it brings them back at full health, wouldn't that turn into an infinite loop? Golem dies because reviving golem that dies to ressurect golem that died for golem to revive...

It's definitely quite leet now.

Also, it seems to me that you can exploit its 90% repair discount by suiciding damaged expensive units instead of repairing them...

I think it is fine. I consider the oppertunity costs. if i had two more offensive golems neither have diwd.at all after all.
Life is short. Have fun.
