Do siege tank items scale?

Postby somen00b » Sat Jan 02, 2016 3:48 am

Title says it all. I had a very long game where I had 75 statups and level 5 armor but 10-15 (?) siege tank items arranged around the enemy command center still did heavy damage to my hero. Granted, I may have miscounted how many there were but they hard the command center completely surrounded with them.

edit: If they don't currently scale, I'm not saying they should.

They don't scale. None of the store structures do actually.

No. Anyone that buys them are fools. Really outside a very early 1 for denying experience on the sides on desert, which does not always work...they are junk.

Really now? Call me a fool then! Ive seen them shut down a ling bd until lings had over 30 stats when placed correctly. On certain maps one can be bought to take and clear 3 crit spots after just 2 minutes and they are very effective farming corner crit spots on other maps at just 125 minerals when other races take at least 200. Very nice perk on some heroes that can afford to drop dom for another item.

No joke. I physically despise anyone who buys shop turrets and use them to critter or lane. >:D

Yes, they can farm corner on deep chill. But unless against noob pubs they will get destroyed before paying off

You only need to hold your lane for 2:30 for them to pay off. It's not that long.

I think the tanks actually splash on allied heroes and buildings which can make them hurt you more then help you when they are in your base. Unless this has been changed. I'm not sure if they have though.

They don't. Goliath ult only affects computer controlled units.
