Thread: Does Chrono Boost work on Photon Cannons?

  1. #1

    Default Does Chrono Boost work on Photon Cannons?

    I made a Test map and proved that Chrono Boost = Stim when applied to units. now I ask myself since Canons are structures can players chrono boost canons to "stim" them?

    Hmmm... if you bothered making a map to compare CB and stim... why not test CB on a canon while you're at it?^^

    Sorry I can't be of more help, but that would be pretty interesting if it works (only for vsAI games... but still it could be cool).

    Wait, how did you prove that CB = Stim? The ability only works on buildings (and only buildings that have tech/units)...

    And no you cant chrono cannons sadly.

    Your source for sound, logical and reasonable responses.

    I changed the target validators or w/e they were called so it can target units too it will make them move 50% faster and attack 50% faster

    So, I guess the answer to the question is: if you set it to.



    Rest In Peace, Old Friend.

    During the beta you could, and it was horribly imbalanced. Not sad at all.



    Rest In Peace, Old Friend.

    Imba? Cannons cannot move, so you can move back, and it would be a lot of wasted CBs, which are single-target and share an energy pool. Stimpacks on the other hand, can be activated for all units, costs HP that can be healed, and it also makes the unit faster, so it's actually much harder to run from them.

    OH MAN IF I COULD"STIM" the collossus to attack faster that would be insane XD imagine a carrier or mothership...they hit alot as it is but with 50% faster rate of attack oh my gosh thats just so much damage!

    At first I was like, how had no-one yet discovered you could chrono boost units? Was there a trick?
    Then you were like, I changed the validators in the editor so I could
    Then I was like facepalm.jpg

    I wish you could use chrono boost on allies structures. Been a few times when a protoss leaves/drops in ladder team games and their chrono boost gets unused.

    Can you imagine? Mules and scvs twice as fast?! Even faster reapers. Faster banshees. Your nightmares just became real
    I really need to change this...
