Hold fire vs buildings during capture order

0

Yes, I just lost because my ACU was set to hold fire after capturing mexes and got overwhelmed by a surprisingly low amount of tanks.

It has bothered me before though. If I give a capture order on a mex it makes little sense for the ACU to shoot it while walking to it. Does anyone agree with this or should I just L2P?

I think it's quicker to reclaim and rebuild

But it is free when captured, but the mexes that die quickly have a high return on investment...

still, it is silly to shoot the thing you want to capture alive.

The ACU won't fire at anything it has a capture order on. It will keep firing at any other units until its in range to capture.
No need to put it on hold fire.

Yeah it's kinda sad sometime, I remember wanting to abuse T2 cybran ACU drop to capture destros. Using the transport weapon to stun the destro, while ACU capture it. But you can't shoot at the unit being captured. I guess ground firing on the spot the destro is might work.
