Cancelling a damaged building in Starcraft 2



  • I know that cancelling an unfinished building gives you back 75% of the resources you invested.

    However, I have the feeling that if an unfinished building is attacked, the percent of damage received is also substracted when cancelled.

    Can anyone confirm that?

    Anyway, I think that's only fair. If not, you could constantly build pylons (for example) in your opponent's main, forcing him to stop mining, at only the cost of 25 minerals...



  • You can just test it out yourself; but anyway I can confirm that damage does not affect the amount of resources funded.

    You also can't view it as a simple "25 mineral" cost. The mining time lost performing that is already quite substantial in the early game. Further more, that 100 minerals used to build the pylon is also unusable for that period of time. This is a large investment early game. You have to factor in the opportunity cost of that 100 minerals and your probe not mining.
