The upgrade for stronger pylons requires more vespene gas.

Timely headline considering SC1 just went F2P.

Either this happened very fast, or they must do things differently. Someone managed to get a helicopter (or a cellphone in a tall building) there, but no fire nor police. Nobody told the power company to turn off the power.

Well, not steel, but what if they built their pylons out of some flammable metal, like magnesium, you know for the weight reduction.
 
2017-04-19 08:55:14 PM  
Not so much the pylon catching fire, as the building it was sitting on.
Which then collapsed, leaving the pylon unsupported.

Maybe next time, build it on the ground, which rarely burns or collapses.
 
2017-04-19 08:59:49 PM  
I would say this happened today in Atlanta but there was space between the vehicles and there was only 6 lanes. Well, tomorrow's another day. Fiddle dee dee.
 
2017-04-19 08:59:54 PM  
I can't believe that thing was still live when it collapsed.

that was built around it, causing it to heat so much the lower pylon structure weakened and collapsed.

Maybe next time, build it on the ground leave open space around it, which rarely burns or collapses.

There was a fire crew at the base, look for the shifting streams of water.

We should proably let them migrate and build things here.

Forget the pylons. It's those vicious Keep Left signs you have to watch out for.

CygnusDarius: The upgrade for stronger pylons requires more vespene gas.


That was for shields, which boost everything. Unless you're talking about that co-op crap that's a hideous RPG grind that turned SC2 into freemium garbage.

The roof!  The roof!  The roof is on fiya!
Too bad the pylon needing to be rebuilt means this shantytown fire will be a waste.

It's funny, but I've always avoided playing SC co-op, even in 2. I always stuck to offline gameplay and mod missions.

"The fact is, what we're doing could be construed as - forgive me sir - collaboration with the enemy. Perhaps even as treasonable activity. Must we work so well? Must we build them a better bridge than they could have built for themselves?"

Then look for the shiatting streams as the thing starts to go over.
