There are greatly opposed views on the usage of engineers.
The highly agreed negative usage:
- Way Pointed
- Rush (within first 5 minutes of game)
Do you feel that a late game (6 minutes and up) use of an engineer is any different than the use of a tanya, spy, or yuri?
One could make the argument that any of the other units mentioned above would have an equal or greater effect if successful. Yet, if you use an engineer later in the game, most will flame 'lamer.' I understand that there is a level of frustration about being engi'd, I've experienced it myself, but after years of players packing up their engineer from selling their mcv and using it, I suppose, I've accepted it.
