    I feel for y'all, but there's something hilarious about watching a group of coordinated PAers getting dismantled by a Murky.

    Wait, was ducks streaming that match? Oh god. My Kael'thas is so rusty.

    I feel like whenever we get a good crew going, if I don't play a comfort hero or I don't actively shotcall then I just don't contribute enough to help us win.

    Valla is one of the heroes I've really seen hard-carry a team several times. People with really good mechanical skill can just fucking shred a pack of randos with ease on her it seems.

    I watched the replay and the Valla was really good but never under any real pressure, either. The other team only really tried to kill her twice, and we saved her both times easily. Honestly the other team was just not very good and compounded the issue by never split soaking and forcing consecutive fights that they lost over and over again in the bot lane for 5 minutes straight. Meanwhile on our side munkus was soaking lanes and getting camps. Both of which combined to generate what at one point was a 5-level lead.

    We all played well but I walked away from that replay thinking more that the other team was just bad than anything else. Nobody was ever really under any kill pressure and their Fenix didn't do nearly as much damage as he should've. But to be fair, as long as you aren't out-drafted, playing well and not making mistakes generally makes the other team look bad in comparison.

    like, an auriel who had 3 buttons instead of 4 would be a better hero 95% of the time because nobody can land a whip without saving people constantly.

    I should play Dehaka more often. I've swapped up my build a fair amount, and I actually enjoy him now more than I ever have before. I've never actually been super successful on Dehaka previously. Like, I'd win matches, but I never felt totally in control. Now I definitely feel a lot more comfortable on him.

    I mean I would just put Leo in the lane with Murky. You lose a bit of tf but he can easily depush whatever Murky is doing, though it might be tougher if Murky goes slime build.

    You could also just send Jaina to press W on the wave and that'll stop any push a Murky could do.

    Blizzard just needs to fucking put on their adult pants and change genji’s fucking trait. Oh you missed swift strike, no you fucking die, I’m sorry.

    I’m so tired of genjis diving the back line going immune and walking the fuck away because lol trait I can jump another wall and you can’t haha it’s so fun and well designed.

    Sorry for feeding a bit in that last game, guys. Wasn't watching the map close enough.

    Edit: Although, there were still moments of showing why Raynor is so bullshit. Any time I got in range of Hanzo his entire health bar basically disappeared instantly. (Then I'd die because I had to step forward to do that, but meh.)

    I'd redesign Genji's Trait to the following:

    Cyber Agility (D)
    Cooldown: 30 seconds

    Activate to make the next Swift Strike pass through terrain


    It would still give him an escape, but only if he secures a kill on the way in. If he Swift Strikes in and doesn't get the kill, well...I hope that Deflect can get you out.

    i don't think i hate any more player more than than people who just snap abathur.

    we can't run double tank now and they're running a mega dive comp so we just get dove and killed for free every time because you wanted to play the dumb hero that doesn't have a body.

    thanks. fun game friend.

    every "weird" hero is just so bad. abathur, chogall, tlv, burn them all down.

    No, in all seriousness, though; I feel very strong on Dehaka now. He has very, very quickly changed into a hero that I feel very confident on. He fits into almost every team comp, because you almost always want extra frontline and global presence. I can get away with so much now that I know what I'm doing. He's just so goddamned strong in the right hands. All that really changed for me was that I swapped away from a bunch of under-performing talents; I had always thought that Dehaka was so strong because he had three health bars, but I never really felt like he had much of an impact outside of being a giant wad of HP in teamfights. But now that I'm going Enhanced Agility, and especially now that I'm taking Feeding Frenzy, and ESPECIALLY now that I'm taking Isolation over Adaptation, he just feels so goddamned threatening. And being able to bounce in and out of shadow for huge movement speed bonuses is just fantastic.

    Dehaka is love and Dehaka is life.

    the abathur is on my team.

    that is the problem.

    ive ended up on leo a couple times today, leo is pretty good as long as the other team is running double tank and doesn't have the super high dps like raynor or fenix. his sustain is pretty good, his teamfight is pretty good, and he poops on a lot of stuff once you get 16 and can spooky ghost all over people and then pop out and wreck em with the q.

    Dehaka is love and Dehaka is life.

    Until I started taking Enhanced Agility unconditionally, Dehaka felt terrible to me.

    I still take Symbiosis at 7 and Adaptation at 10 almost every game, though. I see the appeal of Feeding Frenzy, but I feel like even with that, there's only time for one good tongue per engage. Maybe that's because I tend to play Dehaka in QM, where he ends up being the only tank and often the only front-line, so he can't stay in to auto attack at all. And Isolation is too hard to land with the hyper-mobile bullshit everywhere. Of course, the last time I played much Dehaka was right after Maiev's release, so maybe that has something to do with that opinion. With a second tank to hold people down, Feeding Frenzy and Isolation look much more appealing.
