comment When moving your units, is it possible to prevent them from automatically attacking aliens that are hidden by fog of war?
I'll have to give it a look; I got the base game early and stopped paying attention shortly after, so I didn't even realise there was an expansion!

I can't answer your question, but if you're a fellow Alpha Centauri player you're going to be sorely disappointed by the shallowness of Civ:BE in comparison. :(

comment What heroes can easily counter BristleBack?
@RishabhSharma Oh okay, sure :) I had included that in the answer so I wasn't sure if you were making another point regarding Skywrath.

comment What heroes can easily counter BristleBack?
@RishabhSharma Do you mean that Bristleback typically builds a magic wand? This makes someone like Skywrath less effective as the accumulating charges are worth that much extra HP due to damage reduction, and the mana lets him keep casting. Or were you highlighting my final point about building a wand against Bristle? (or at least a magic stick)

comment What heroes can easily counter BristleBack?
@Zikato Skywrath can build into a high damage nuker but his slow and silence don't have the spamminess of his Q, and while it does scale with int it doesn't do pure, so Bristle will get a pipe/BKB and it won't matter so much. Plus it's telegraphed and Skywrath lacks a stun, so it's easy for Bristle to turn his back before each blast lands.

comment Abilities that slow interaction with oppressor
Answer might be right but the logic is wrong: sure, the slow is only applied if the ability hits the enemy, but the damage is also only dealt if the ability hits the enemy.

comment What is the point of Beating Heroic mode for any adventure?
@DenkerAffe Yeah, fair! No issue with the answer, just couldn't not call out Blizzard on their BS :P

comment What is the point of Beating Heroic mode for any adventure?
Yeah, they didn't deny the gold cards to avoid having something unachievable - they did it so that players who have earned or paid for the adventures still have to spend additional resources to get everything. Crafting is set up to encourage spending money to get more cards to dust.

comment Can I trigger a combo or a queuing action in Dota 2?
@Ordous Agreed, it can be very strong, but it does take a little experience and care (e.g. not cancelling a channel because you wanted to cancel a queued ult).

comment Can I trigger a combo or a queuing action in Dota 2?
Yes, queueing actions still works. Each action will start after the previous one finishes, and can include casting spells and using items (with targeting). Actions queued while channelling start at the end of the channel. E.g. as Tidehunter I could TP to a tower, then queue blink (target), ravage, and anchor smash. It might be hard to cancel if the opponents move, though, and if you take damage on arrival the blink will cancel and you might waste ravage! Queues are particularly useful for having illusions walk certain routes, or attack-move along a lane.

comment Does Brann Bronzebeard's ability activate as soon as he is played?
It's not that BGH doesn't trigger twice, it's that a doubled player-targeted battlecry uses the same target for both effects. For example, Shattered Sun Cleric will end up giving a minion +2/+2. However, Hungry Crab targets. destroying only one murloc in the end, but will get +4/+4 for itself.

comment Can I move a coffin and it's corpse?
@Philipp Also you only have to forbid the corpse if you want to avoid it being put in the coffin. If there are other corpses competing for coffin space you can forbid them, too.

comment Can I move a coffin and it's corpse?
@Philipp Yes, or if you wanted to use the same coffin specifically for the same dwarf you could forbid the corpse before deconstruction (in building contents) and then unforbid it after.

comment What does Portal have that Portal 2 doesn't?
@Ben I don't think I missed that; I touched on it briefly in the third paragraph, but I focused on the mechanical content prior to that (although I didn't write about specific characters).

comment Why am I unable to purchase a tile outside of my current cultural area?
@kevlarjacket The best way to secure the gold is probably to build a city on the river. Either go as far as you can from your first city while still in range of the gold (the tile we can only see half of), or one closer. If the gold is within range of your opponent's city and you can't afford to buy 3 tiles straight to the gold, perhaps forget the river and go straight for the gold, or just look for other gold in the area and take your opponent's city later :D

comment Why am I unable to purchase a tile outside of my current cultural area?
Cultural expansion won't expand into out-of-range tiles until the city is fully expanded within range. If you want to speed up natural cultural expansion into the gold tile you'd have to buy every available tile within your city (prohibitively expensive!) and the eventual natural cultural expansion would probably select the gold next.

comment Safe Disenchant List TGT
@ChaseC Plus, unlike physical card games like Magic (where they only change cards to match later rules changes), Blizzard are free to adjust existing cards as they wish. The only caveat here is that they typically only nerf overpowered cards and rarely buff underpowered ones.

comment Safe Disenchant List TGT
I'd say it's not even certain that cards that are strictly inferior now will be useless forever. E.g. They add a card like "whenever you summon a 1-health minion, set its health equal to its attack" and magma rager becomes common :P
