Pro's often miss tomes, drop items?
Posted 08 January 2010 - 11:03 AM
Sorry to be asking a newb question but I'm a big fan of watching replays by the pros (given up trying myself, I'm a spectator)
I know the rules pretty damn well and love the game but why is it so frequently I see the pros get a the purble book of health and ignore the thing?
I know it could be by accident but it seems really really frequent tomes are ignored.
Furthermore, I see a lot of Orc and NE replays where the hero drops an item and picks it back up when they are in their base, often with a few slots still free on the hero? Are they just re-organising for hotkey shortcuts or even hitting it accidentally?
anyone know? thanks all.

As for tomes it varies player to player and situational. Such as if you have a very timing based build or are trying to creep jack someone you will leave the tomes but most of the time its because your busy macro/scouting/microing to notice it.

that being said, I'm no pro, to dictate what they do but it seems logical to keep them frmo the enemy.

Yeah look ok fair call - but I mean DOTA - I'm just not a fan, I really am not, I <3 <3 <3 War 3 and DOTA shits me that it split our community so much.
I normally anger people when I tell them what I think of SC too,.. (my opinion, War 3 is a deeper, richer game - for a start I can't stand the hundreds of units in SC, it seems un-necessarily busy)
Really wish this community would flourish and wish I got to it earlier. :/
Orc winning tournament after tournament doesn't help either.

For your second question.
Picking an item up/ dropping an item keeps your hp at the same %.
EG. you have 300/500 hp (with an item +100hp)
Without dropping item:
300/500hp (400hp max without item), moonwell heals you for 50hp = 350/500hp
Dropping an item:
300/500hp -> 240/400 (if you drop an item, you keep the same percentage hp!), moonwell heals you for 50 = 290/400hp(72,5%), putting back the item means still having 72,5% hp -> 362,5/500hp
362,5hp > 330hp
