Imo add the "Other" option to the poll because I like Vengeful Spirit. Here are my reasons:
1. Her attack animation is great which helps with deny/lasthit
2. Nice nuke/stun
3. Wave of Terror is another harrasing skill and it gives a lot of vision

Based on the few option up there, huskar is definitely the strongest. I mean at level 1. Level 1 unlimited stack. What can other nuker do? One nuke, then?

One on one slark can beat anyone at level 1 if he skills passive. Its a great counter to creep skipping axe. However, at level 1 you aren't going to get to fight anyone long enough to matter.

IMO huskar. Zeus is strong once he hits 5/7 but that's IMO the early mid game.

Really? You think people just stand there and let you attack them with Slark until they die? His early game is really bad unless you are up against some retarded "pub lane" with 2 melee carries played by noobs.

OT: Out of those options only Huskar and Zues.

Huskar can orbwalk him to death from lvl1 before Slark manages to destroy even half his hp!

Only noobs will stand there letting their stats get stolen!




On topic: I vote for Zeus!

my opinion: slark is a shit of a hero and can just do something against noobs in early game. i pick also zeus as the most effective early game hero.

Huskar when paired with a slower/stunner is one hell of a lane.

a well played chen will destroy any lane partners quickly and efficiently. Especially players with a range stun. Sven, SK etc are perfect pairs to chen as the slower creeps can zone in for the net, clap or stomp. As well as providing chaos damage.

huskar gets nuked to death early game when nukes are strongest, slark too. es is pretty good at ganking, roaming etc but needs help to do anything particularly fancy. zeus and lina however dominate the early game with powerful spammable nukes out the yin yang, no doubt in my mind that they are the strongest early gamers on ur list.

im surprised and appalled no one has mentioned shadow fiend tho? i cant think of a better early gamer, and he ramps so well into mid and late game it should be criminal

Get Huskar for guaranteed facerape only if you have Omni as well.

By the way, Shadow Fiend? Can't think of any better early gamer?

Tinker. Does this ring a bell?

tinker has 48 more health with the same items as sf, yet sf will almost always have more farm thanks to razes and necro. this means a triple raze will screw tinker and if hes still alive he'll perish under sf's free sacred relic. it all comes down to who can last hit and deny better, ive seen both heroes outlane the other. i personally have preference to sf and im not saying tinker is bad, merely that sf has a marginally better early game. and even if tinker is better, again, its very slightly imo

so he can spam his 180 cost missles and rearm them for 200 more. if he doesnt rearm then sf can easily tango/salve/bottle his health back no prob. if he decides to lane ever he'll be in range of harassment and if he want to use laser then sf can use 2 nukes on him still. he will have to farm those BoTs and when he does the 75 mana cost aoe nukes of sf will both hit him and farm creeps. laser has pure damage which is brutal to sf, but getting 2 nukes in return will still hurt just as much if not more

Actually it IS threads... NOT treads, so you more like broke it.

Thread = Imagine a string, that's a thread. Now this thing we're posting in is a string of posts... hence a thread.

Tread = To walk, to put one's foot down, a form of movement, or a slang for shoes.

Disclaimer:- Not really dictionary standard explanations but you should understand from that.

On-Topic : Out of the list, I'd choose Huskar. His flaming skills are legendary in lane.

Not exactly "early", but Tiny and Techies around level 5 and more are very dangerous. They will not go near if they have low base hp or low def (making them lose a lot of "farming" time). Most of the time, in early game, one toss + Kaboom = successful gang.
