T3 pgen Bug Adjacency bonus

When you surround a salvation with T3 pgens it not only slows down fire rate, but it makes projectiles cost more.

Basically the T3 pgen adjacency bonus for Salvation does the opposite of what it should do.

T2 and t1 pgens interact normally....


This bug doesn't always occur. but it does happen frequently enough to be a pain

That cost thing only if you mess with other Pgens too

But the 4x T3 Pgens slows it down is already know.

And since I was in the game with you when we tested this:

3xT3 + 8x T1 Pgen seems to give highest rate of fire

This espionage attack vector is well known to top players. Basically you put SACUS on hold fire, teleport into the enemy base and build T3 Pgens around their artilleries, draining their energy. Hahaha!

I like to cap my opponents mexes as well. That way I can ctrl-k them at a critical time, crippling his economy.

Yep, you need moves like that to achieve my lofty 1300 rating.

If i remember correctly its all T3/4 arty not just salvation.

Putting 3 T3s on increases speed and then the 4th one slows it down or something

I don't remember that. But I do remember that four on Salvation will slow it down.

Surprises me Icedreamer didn't know about it.

Thanks for the kind words.

No idea why this is in Tournament discussion.

In bring this up again because 3.5 years later it is still not "fixed".
