Do Creeps / Creep Camps regenerate? Post #1

This topic brings up the question of whether or not Creeps and Creep Camps regenerate. Since that statement is a bit vague I'll clarify.

A) Will a Creep Camp build new neutral units after the beginning of the game?

B) Will new Creep Camps appear after the game has begun?

C) Will random solitary creeps appear after the game has begun?

Basically this topic is about whether or not Creeps/Creep Camps are a one time shot. If this is the case what happens later on in the game when the sources of rare items are tapped dry? Also this will probably happen very early on as people will make it a habit to "grab what they can, before its gone." If anyone has insight on this specific topic or wants to post something related, I'd love to hear it.

A) Yes.

B) Probably not. Creeps got no builders.... waitaminute, maybe KOBOLDS build stuff. But then.... no. Won't work. They'll just be too powerful.

c) Yes. From the creep camps.

Also, creep camps cant be destroyed-just captured by different players.

A) no I don't think that they will add units it to their forces. For the most part I think creeps will just be a few units around the map. I do see them regenerating life as the game goes though. They are really just to prevent early rushes and no at least give you a fight for the gold and units. Their not meant to really fight/build you for it.

B)Probably not, again their not really meant to be a challenge later on. I think they just want to prevent early spreading.

C)No, for much of the same reasons as B..... random ones really would not serve a purpose and could even cause one side some trouble. If they kept appearing at a creep camp by ones base they would have to keep spare units to defend them. The creeps also are in the game to prevent fun spoiling things like peon rushes.... things that really can't win there just people trying to be funny. They also eliminate the early rushes. It still debatable if this is a fair strategy or just plain cheap ( I see it as cheap).

I thing they are one shot units/bases.

Blizzard confirmed this quite a while ago, the answer to all your questions is NO.

Remember, you can only control 3 heroes at a time so you really shouldn't have to worry about a lack of rare items.

Why would creeps need to regenerate if there are creeps for every world you go to for your missions?
