Pearling

Postby seacow » Sat Jun 15, 2013 9:02 pm

For new player who aspire to titan
http://i.imgur.com/KgxvluS.png
99% of the game i will follow a strict algorithm of pearling and unless you notice some variation* then i would deviate from my path slightly
Pearl anywhere in area 1
if nothing is observed
else go to bottom green circle or camp ( if structure is observed at middle )
After pearling area 1, pearl anywhere in area 2.
if nothing is observed
else camp if structure is observed or move to area 3
by then roughly 5min has passed,reserved pearl and employ camping strategy if you have yet to have any minion or repeat first mention step
pearling area 1,2,3,4,5 give optimize your chance of feeding.
-Chimerea is found in the bottom shop( where it sell scroll, eye,tomes etc), chimerea is free and can use item.
Because it can use item, it can summon other chimerea. Therefore stockpile chimerea in mound ( the golden structure at middle is the golden mound). activate 1 chimerea and give it 1 chimerea and activate;repeat.
Send them out in the open far away
generally, i would send them in to the green area
*variation
radioactive, nature, demologist/goblin make really good snack; when approaching area 1 or at middle
one can observe worker migration of radioactive/ nature, thus infer their food source.
in the presence of goblin/demo wall, one might guess the spot of their seed therefore undemolished food source
head out to those seed accordingly to the direction of walls

You obviously pearl areas where you see as many as possible parts of other bases.
Directly pearling a base only makes the builders escape and detonate feed.

By the way, you might structure your post so it's easier to read.

Yeah generally what you say is correct
it is not so innate in most titan i seen

Imho I generally pearl in the direction of where builders come from when I'm camping (I'm generally camping for a minion, farming walls and RCs), then going to bases where there is only one or two unupgraded walls, or if I have an AoE nuke, just go up and nuke workers and TP back, or WW back if TP is on CD.

Didn't really want to have a topic grave-dug back up, but I have something else to add - I think you should just trust your instincts instead of going by a pearling pattern, especially when they are picking a base for a tower base. "Pros" generally look for the last place(s) the minions has been, and go to far places of that, or wait until you are away from eurobase and then base then. Have teleport off CD at most times - you'll need it for your main titan to grab items from mid, and have ganks at the ready.

EDIT: Also, please pearl in fog. Pretty please? Do you seriously want people to know where you're pearling or when it is off CD?

EDIT2: Also, think about the maphack report threats you are missing out on.
