Re: Sniper in Dota 2 OP?
Its kind of the same with sniper? lol no
Put sniper on a 3lane with earthshaker and CM (for example) and destroy your enemy, nova + fissure + shrapnel can beat anything , you get such easy kills its stupid even, i know cause ive done that in so many HS CW-s.
Put sniper on a 3lane against a soloer and with shrapnel you'll push their towers super fast.
Put sniper on a team fight on minute 10 and as long as he has his 810 range + shrapnel with 539285902 cast range + assassinate and he can turn the tide of the battle, considering assassinate does such a ridiculous damage with low CD and huge range, id say its better than Lion's finger of death, easily.
Sniper is good turtle, if you go against pusher strat or u get owned early game u can turtle with shrapnel alone, spectre can't do absolutely anything.
Like that guy said, spectre gets carried into the game so how can a hero like that without any personality even be considered *best*? dont make me laugh, fed storm destroys spectre, ive lost games as spectre with hot / radi diffu etc all core items against some storm who could drop people and get out just like that
spectre is outcarried by many and unless it *FITS* in your team she is fucking worthless
And uhm, spectre on 1 team and sniper on other? can go both ways, it depends on the other characters, all i know is that the lane with sniper will have huge advantage because shrapnel/ranged dps is much better and synergies with others much easier than spectre, so the team with sniper can win even if they are a bit worse, given that they dont make way too many mistakes.
If you think spectre can kill sniper mid-late game when he ports near him with ulti i lol'd @ u, what kind of an idiot sniper he has to be to not move a bit?
Shrapnel > dagger, by tons
headshot > desolate , by tons
take aim = dispersion, face it - dispersion is pretty overrated. 22% isn't that much as it takes barely 1/5 times more damage to kill spectre. Instead 10 hit it takes 12, instead 5 nukes it takes 6 thats not such a huge difference is it now? And the reflect damage is *VERY* situational.
While 260 range bonus in pro gaming is 1 of the best things u can ask for
Assassinate = haunt, arguable id prefer assassinate but considering spec can be farming on the other end of the map and come in the battle i guess its not *that* bad, still, its pretty situational (as everything in dota)
ranged hero > melee
sniper's stat gain is insane > spectre's medicore stat gain
sniper has the best ranged animation > spectre's shitty hit
so yea, lol'd @ spectre worshipers who ignore the fact that his team carried him and hes just doing finishing job
most importanly: sniper can kill fountain alone, spectre can't
