About splash damage
« on: September 10, 2018, 08:13:55 AM »
Hello  i always have problems with repping buidlings with my peons vs cats or cannon towers. SOmetimes when i rep in angle ( diagonal) it doesn`t hurt my peon, sometimes it kills it. I saw in some videos how good/pro players can rep without being damaged. Can anyone explain me how does it work and how can i learn/understand how to rep. Thx!!
And if you have any other interesting information about splash damage feel free to write it here.

If you repair with a peon who has lumber on hand you take no splash damage.  The lumber acts as an additional shield.

it's a troll post

yes it's true that active pro players don't want to share their knowledge. They're usually afraid of the competition. Retired players are usually open to sharing/teaching.

This is a simple topic but complicated to explain. I might give an explanation later about how splash damage works. I currently don't understand the topic perfectly, I just do actions by instinct.

Make a map with an 80 armor gt, some peons and a computer with a cat. Set up the peons, gt and the enemy cat in a way that the cat attacks the tower from various angles. Try to rep the tower and take notes ;p

Of course for example if you rep the tower with your peon closing in an orthogonal angle to the angle of the cat's line of fire, you won't take damage. You can also micro 2 peons, periodically repairing and moving 1 tile away from the gt.

I noticed that in more 'direct' angles, the peon sometimes takes damage and sometimes does not. I don't really get it either.

Thx for the advice. I tryed smth similar, but with a friend and it was just how you say: smth with diagonals, but not always the same, so I got confused.

stand directly behind the path of splash, ur peasant gets whacked. stand the opposite side of the splash and the peasant is free to rep without taking damage.  if you're repping a ct attack, 1 peasant is enough. if you're repping a cat attack, you need 2 strategically placed peasants to repair.

there's an even cooler bug in this game that the more advanced players exploit, it's called the tower bug, r you familiar with this? this is why on GoW, 11 falls to 9's towers easier than most spots that are being offensively towered, and why ~paperboy^sol~ dies so easily every time he's my nib...

have a read of this:

People love sharing info if they know the answer... But I dont think anyone has a solid answer on this subject for you. Just a "feel" for different situations.

Just play chop. Serious.

After u get pwned in your first 100 tower/cat wars you will understand exactly where splash damage goes.
