Re: Worst hero in the game?
Drow ranger, drow ranger, and drow ranger, always drow ranger. Even KotL is better than her. Every other hero people listed is just slightly underpowered, like Medusa- a great lategame carry who is nigh unkillable, who forces a push in her direction and survives all team clashes. Her impotence is what makes her not popular. BB? Still a star with a mana battery, even if hes underused. Hes not even bad at all right now, just not god tier. Sniper? He's a risky carry but works splendidly when he does, fitting into teams that can control positioning. Absolutely bonkers stats and always contributing to fights.
But drow ranger? She's the worst fucking hero in the game, in pretty much every way. You can play drow ranger by taking a krobelus and getting nothing but stats, silence and witchcraft. And you'd be better off. You can play drow ranger by taking any 600 range hero and taking only 1 spell, really.
Drow isn't even a 2-skill hero, her frost arrows are so absurdly worthless in the current meta, where everyone can either out-dps you, stun you, ghost staff, force staff, ww, blink, whatever, frost arrows are the weakest orb out there. All drow really contributes to anything is a silence, and its an underpowered silence at that, compared to other heroe's silences.
Her two passive skills don't even make up for her lack of base stats alone. You could play a sniper with just his base stats, and he'd be doing better than drow's marksmanship and aura combined. People see marksmanship and bust a nut without looking at her agility gain. Ok, she gets +45 agility, wahoo! Except she has almost 45 less agility than a real agility hero. With the standard BAT and base damage, she barely has as much DPS as other heroes like antimage & terrorblade & windrunner before you consider their skills at all. And thats with all her DPS skills combined.
I have never seen a drow ranger be useful in a game, period. I have never seen her be the reason a team has won. I've seen drow rangers win games by being carried by their allies, I've seen them passively farm and try desperately to get mass tier 4 items (and still be ignorable free-food). Every other hero in current dota might be within +/- 10% overall power level, besides maybe also KotL. Drow? Maybe -70%. Worst hero in the game, by a good margin from the rest of them.
People saying stuff like "SB sucks, Drow is good" are insane, and have no idea what they're talking about. SB is only bad in DotA 1 because he's shut down by BKB so hard, and would be an amazing hero if he wasn't. In DotA 2, even with the BKB nerf, the stealth buffs to empowering haste and charge make him extremely strong, and few people even realize he's a top pick because of it.
