Basically, I want to know if I can effectively fake some harassment with a force made entirely of hallucinations.

For example, I could fake harassment of one base to draw forces away from the base I actually want to attack. But I want to make sure that to the opponent, it appears to be a normal attack (except that they take no damage, of course).

Yes, they will appear as normal attacks with that warning and everything, but it will be very obvious that they're not doing any damage so I don't think an all-hallucination army would be very effective use of sentry's energy.

If you mix real units in, then it's much harder to tell if they are hallucinations or not.

Thanks! I'm sure you're right about mixing in real units, but I just wanted to make sure I knew this little detail. :-) – Sandy Apr 21 '11 at 0:22
A good example would be HuK vs Idra in the recent MLG Dallas. If you want to watch something funny, watch the start of game 3 – Sorean Apr 21 '11 at 5:03
lol, that was awesome! <3 HuK – Sandy Apr 22 '11 at 14:43
IdrA's extreme confidence makes it even more easy and entertaining to toy with. Go HuK! – tenfour Apr 22 '11 at 16:21
