I’d imagine some of us have gotten good enough that “fires don’t even start”, let alone “having to put them out”. However, for those that had situations where they had to recover, what were they, and how’d that work out?
—In general, losing workers sucks.
I’ve learned on DoN that if you’re on the left side, you need a couple of towers or their equivalents or else Hunterlings will make play things of them. Replacing 10 of them really puts a hamper on the engine.
Especially on DoN, every now and then, I look over and realized my base took a hit b/c I was too focused on taking out infested huts. At least I had surplus in some cases while I got my geysers resaturated. And min line from 5 to 10 to… something close to 27 (sometimes, it was late enough that even near full saturation wouldn’t have mattered).
I don’t really use them, but even the few times I did, the worst I had was to replace a couple of them, who were at very low stacks anyways. If my ally does make them, I be sure to protect them since those alone will go a long way towards victory!
—Having to rebuild Karax towers
I learned it’s better to focus on one or 2 areas rather than spreading yourself thin. It’s very wasteful and painful to have to keep replacing these b/c the few get obliterated and you need to rebuild from scratch
—Dehaka dying 3 times within the first 5 minutes of the game.
important since I was trying to get the achievement…
Power Leveling - - Reach level 6 with Dehaka within the first 6 minutes on Hard difficulty.
… Failed. But I do take comfort that despite dying 3 times, I came close. And, I was lv14 (so no Mastery pts available at that time). Manage to get it my next game (mastery pts now available again)
—Nova replacing units
I was on no prestige back then (before the system came out). Wasn’t paying attention on VL, Lings and Banalings spawned nearly right on top of her infantry units. I managed to save a few, but whole squad got wiped out. Luckily, my ally was able to cover, and I shifted to air to cover.
For one game, I was losing enough Wraiths that despite the 50% reduction in cd, I was actually getting limited by the charges! Stuck in a pair of Vikings to compensate, but that was all that was needed. I got better a micro-ing Wraiths to not die so quickly.
–Kerrigan dying on last wave of VL
I Quick Leap her into the enemy wave and hit Immobilization Wave. Except, no wave. Turns out, it still had a few seconds of cd left! She promptly gets killed, and we’re left with a ginormous wave to tackle; without the Queen of Blades. Did NOT recover from this one
