hey guys,

 

Just another silly random question. 

 

How do you decide when you're gonna make a radar as sovs. By radar I basically mean desos. 

 

I only ever make them when I feel like I'm going behind in a game and I might need to camp.

 

I've seen some top players go early radar and then no radar in the same map. Can't figure out the thought process behind that.

 

Thanks!

Personally I tend not to worry too much about radar and concentrate moreso on my ratio of wars to miners/refs. (Cant make radar if building refs is what I mean by this).

 

I only make desos if I know im going long game, maybe this is wrong, but hey that's my opinion.

 

Obviously depends on the map for me also. Heck RvR or corners im more likely to worry about a radar than on little big bay for example.

 

Go with whatever Latof thinks though...lol. He would have a different view :)

Early radar on maps like DH or Heck is pretty strong if you can put pressure with deso but massing wars is much stronger overall. On YR it's the opposite, teching is alot stronger than massing wars.

You should atleast get 2-3 warfacs before radar on most maps.

Unless there are sw's.

Depending on how the game plays out/the mal u can get away without a radar.

Back in the day i used to go 5 warfacs before getting a radar sometimes!

Tldr:
Radar is very good but its easier to win if you make a lot of warfactories

There is no universal answer. I recommend watching the latof vs matt series on youtube for great examples of when/how to implement desos. You will see, demonstrated by the deso king himself, just how good desos are at map control-- the main reason why you would build them.

^true there is no universal answer. but I think multiple wars > radar. depends on a lot of things too. every situation is different
