Cannon minions are worth over 40.
it could be worse, in dota 2 once you lose your barracks all the minions in the lane become worth about half as much and at least twice as hard to kill
I assume it is so that when a team kills an inhibitor the other team doesn't get a gold advantage from farming.
Super creeps have to be more trouble than they're worth or pushing an inhib just rewards the enemy team with more farm.
Maybe they spent all their gold on that steel they lift.
Actually, past the fifty minute mark, cannon minions become worth over 50 gold.
Super minions are still under 30.
I understand the reason now, though. It makes sense that you should be punished for having an inhibitor destroyed.
because they want to ensure that you have zero chance of ever coming back from losing.
Boo the Hamster
Super Minions converted to plastic while Cannon Minions use wood and stone. They're just more economical.
no sense in giving more gold to a team that's losing, you want to punish them.
that lane is already giving them tons of gold due to the super minion pushing it.
