League play is a joke. I havne't played dota in about 6 months, but do hella people still insist on plying -rd and -em? lol
Also, if you don't blow ass, having an AoE 6 second stun that you can plant, and get another down before the stun breaks is just rediculous. Not to mention, if you're actually playing hard you can do about 2450AoE damage in a matter of seconds. Combine with pretty much any other AoE setup ftw.
Nah, I said it was a joke because other people are bad at dota and blame everything on the heroes. Which suprisingly is one of the reasons I prefered -ap over -rd, as i'd much rather let the other team pick whatever the fuck they want and then play over them having limited options. Of course, XXXX hero is overpowered will still surface, but that's kinda unavoidable.
P.S. Don't run! WE ARE YoUR FRIENDS!
P.P.S. I miss the good old days of sent vrs scourage for fun.
other heroes get huge AE stuns also and aren't otherwise useless against semi-decent players like techies is :<
techies can extend a game and give your carry time to get insane, but that's about it. it's a hero that relies on your opponents to be bad or at least unprepared. if you want a stunbot, pick rooftrellen.
12 seconds of AoE stun is something no other hero in the game can match.
Countering a good techies is much harder than you would think, not to mention in order to even slow a techies down you have to blow money on TS items, effectivly giving the team the techies is on a gold/item advantage.
