I didn't mean the wiggling build anywhere glitch. I meant the one where you place units behind the build bars and move with arrows.
Ogre, WOL didn't allow force alt scout nor did most of the ton2 players. im talking about 99-01 era.
it was frowned upon. Especially at that era, anti scouts was HUGE. People would hide firestorm/ion in the corner of the map or hide expanded or big rushes.
oh and.. BL can make harv bombs.. make sure u kill all his blu tib tho as a retaliation!
After reading Moles response on Argument 2
You are right. A heli does have a small enshrouded area around it as it scouts. But this does not stop it for the fact that it can GO DEEP in your base. This results to easier scouts as you already scouted the end or foremost area of the base. Once I have the edge of the map scouted, I can easily send another plane scout and scout the rest of the area with ease. My biggest problem with scouting a meticulously anti-scouted base is getting to the core. Once I hit any part of the core, I can easily navigate around the base. If I cannot see the core, it makes it harder in the long run as I get a scout eventually in..
SHROUDED BASE = This results in valuable guessing time of what the opposing enemy is doing (rush? long game? hoarding units?) resulting my current build to be based on assumptions. If im scouted early enough with ALT scouting, I have to rely on pure brute force and attacks based on the enemies base. Less brain power/less thinking. LAZY! Reminds me of those mod maps that is fully enshrouded! The only strategy is who can build faster and attack better.
Assumptions is what the first 5-10mins of gameplay and strategy!
If you can find a official tiberian sun strategy guide that shows any indication of force scout, I will rest my case!
After reading Mole's response on Argument 3:
WORST CASE SCENARIO: You guys WIN.. Alt Scouting is legal.
Lets just say we make ALT scouting legal. Can we have all players agree that alt scouting will be used in the game before starting a match? This way I don't waste time creating antis and people won't have a hissy fit after or during game. Not everyone reads the forum so people won't know its a accepted measure. This will help make it a norm.
Can we make a POLL vote in this thread?
Should we make alt scouting legal?
3 I can care less
