I just got this game this saturday after playing dota on and off since it came out. Have to say twitch needs a nerf, basically it's just the range of his attacks (normal and ability) that seem to shoot way too far. After playing as fiddle I was like WTF? Fiddles attacks i basically had to run up and give the enemy hero a hug to hit them and with twitch I was just sneaking up behind people and owning the hell out of them. Spray and Pray shoots farther then towers and it's aoe? I see how it combines with expunge to make it do insane aoe but even if it was just a 1k range boost it'd be awesome.

The other 9 heroes seem fairly balanced but everytime I play twitch in a pug game i easily go 10/1 kill-death ratio and I only die when I get cocky and chase too far thinking I'm a god because I own every hero I engage 1vs1 easily. The entire enemy team literally had to hug each other the entire match while they pushed one lane to avoid me just picking em off 1 by 1 and as soon as I popped i'd see every enemy hero popping all their cooldowns on me. Had my brother start playing Kayle and we just rape every game. (Kinda hard to kill an invincable twitch)

All in all I like the game and all the new heroes cause I've been bored with dota's heroes for awhile, but I really miss all the cool items from dota like Manta-style and the windwalk weapon. (Forgot name, it's been awhile) And I seriously think some balance issues need to be addressed.

Just my 2 cents.



lothar
i would also like a manta-style item

Lacking in tank power. The only one available has almost zero cc...

Edit: Should probably specify I'm looking at week 10.

twitch isn't imba, unless he's farmed. Only his ulti is a bit OP. The reason why you can easily go 10/1 is because at low and even mid elo people do not deal so well with invi champ, and nukers, whom i think are generally hard counter to squishy carries are underplayed in this game.
I play anivia main, and have tried ryze before, I have no problem whenever a twitch attacks me out of stealth. Fiddlestick can be a good counter to twitch too, but he's a not a burst dmg nuker. Fear + drain, then just run if twitch still alive . In teamfight just CC twitch and he's dead.
Twitch is free this week and I have seen a lot of people go negative with him, at least at where I play, I think mid elo maybe.
Twitch isn't OP.

Mundo is a tank - he's just labeled wrong.
