Pobes vs Zeelot : Discussion

Actually, a few more

18. Base together. Seriously, it makes a huge difference. Even just the double void is a big advantage, not to mention more than double the turreting power (you only need one wall between you--the other wall can be salvaged for more turrets).

19. Sending miners to an unoccupied gold with no protection...really doesn't have much of a downside. They don't feed if the zealot finds them--they have no hp to feed off of. As long as they stay alive for a minute or two, you tend to end up ahead economically even if they do get killed (and if they don't get killed you end up significantly ahead).

20. Do you have enough turrets? Here's a quick litmus test. Let's say the zealot walks up to your base and just sits in front of your wall until he dies. How long will it take your turrets to kill him? If you answered more than a minute, then you are going to feed really hard. Ideally your answer is more like "20 seconds or less"--at this kind of number, once you subtract 5 seconds for the void, and 2-3 seconds for the approach, the zealot will get very little feed time. Note that 20 seconds won't kill any decent zealot--you need better than that to kill.

A list of roughly what turrets are needed to kill in 15-20 seconds...
Unupgraded Zealot: roughly a T6
2500 HP Zealot: roughly four T6s
8500 HP, 45% def Zealot: two T9s
pre-gas maxed Zealot: 19 T9s
1 gas HP/Def Zealot: 3 T11s
Maxed Zealot: 2 T13s

For anyone interested: A friend and I have devoted ourselves to recreating this popular map, with new terrains, mechanics, balances, etc. We've been working on it for weeks and it's almost out of the development stage into play testing.

I present to you, Probes vs Zealots: Rebirth. You can sign up and find out more information on our forums as well as sign up for closed beta tests coming up later in the week.
