    Correct.

    tbf, if you were playing malth from the beginning you weren't picking last rights much

    Was looking at reddit from 5 years ago.

    Tormented was busted and the standard for a long time!

    Yeah, until they changed how malths kit worked and tuned the ults. Then it became garbage trash (outside of a specific ana meme)

    So yesterday my dailies were healer/support and starcraft
    The two where I am just bad with as I have barely an idea how to play with stukov, lt morales Other than following someone around I barely play them
    The 3rd option was abathur whom I am forbidden to play by my brother and if i have tired it in QP it's far more toxic than usual

  • MrBodyMrBody Registered User regular
    Dunno why so many Kael players save his Pyroblast as a finisher to pick off fleeing targets.

    Sure, it can be useful for that, but I see everyone intentionally saving it during teamfights to use as a "winmore" when near-dead targets are running. Like it has a on-death reset or something.

    Way more valuable during the fights. Both for the AoE damage, and the disruption as everyone scrambles out of position.

  • MMMigMMMig Registered User regular
    The problem about saving it too is that it's soooo telegraphed that enemy team has a lot of time to save up buttons to mitigate it.


    Also, is Falstad W build useless, or utterly useless?

    Close to utterly useless - even in aram in never really feels that good.

    But this is by design and kinda has to be - its the lowest skill build by far and the counter to getting outtraded is walk out of the circle. If it were any good there would no reason to ever take his other builds that require aiming or stutter stepping.

    Its extra bad outside of aram because it has noticeably less waveclear then the other two builds

    I almost never take his other ult.

    The sheer utility you get out of that barrel is just too good on a low cooldown. It can be an instant escape, an interrupt, or sort of a guaranteed Stitches hook.

  • WhelkWhelk Registered User regular
    I like SEF for killing low hp hyper carries like Valla, Fenix, or Hanzo. Empowering so you get the root on them is a kill unless they get cleansed, like 90% of the time

  • MMMigMMMig Registered User regular
    SEF also goes well with stagger since you can literally soak infinite damage and cleanse it all away.


    Well, I guess you can soak ~133% of Chen's hp, and then cleanse it all.

    Every enemy team I've tried that on has been very good about stunning me out of the SEF channeling.

  • WhelkWhelk Registered User regular
    Watch their cc use, and if they hold it, bail. I might not pick it vs. Mura.

    You can use it from decently far back due to the leap that triggers the root and the move speed from wind, anyway.

    If you're holding SEF to pop as a Cheat Death when you're low, they're gonna see it coming from a mile away and interrupt you out of it if they're paying attention at all. Chen can get pretty aggressive when it's active, because enemy players tend often not to focus the Clones (they're temporary and it can feel bad to throw cooldowns into something that will go away soon on its own). In my experience, it's often better utilized as an offensive cooldown, rather than defensive.

    The whole point of CC is to guarantee a kill. So you don't need CC if SEF can kill someone outright on their own.

    Other way around, he's saying SEF gets him killed

    Edit: but yeah, it's better as a big fuck you to their backline than a save yourself kind of move

    That is all true.

    But it also means you're forced to throw away a big chunk of SEF's value if you can't use it as a delayed damage cleanse.

    I only ever consider taking it if most of their heroes have escapes that would render barrel peels impractical. And even then, I would first consider taking Ring of Fire + Barrel to do tons of aggressive lane pushing with a guaranteed escape if they come after me (not to mention rapid movement to rotate to another lane).

    I swear to god, at least 65% of my losses these days are when I have a Naz on my team.

    He's the new Gazlowe: just endlessly, mindlessly laning minions all day and not even being good at it. Never at a team fight, yet somehow is also not great at building stacks. Of course, chooses Vile Infection when they're over 30 stacks away from activating it.

    Having him on a team is now as big a red flag as a Nova.
