Tiny, the Stone Giant
It is my first guide about my favourite hero tiny. I must note that i am not a competetive player myself but i regularly play with players who are also
i have watched a lot of replays with tiny ( except playing him myself a lot ).
I will try to give a better insight of stone giant gameplay.
Hero role, pros and cons
- * Ganker
* Ganker ..
* Initiator ( semi )
* Semicarry or Support
Semicarry or support?
Logic of actuall game dictates your role. For example
if you have a team without any real carry - farm as much as you can ( in the breaks between ganks of course ) tiny is very good at farming. On the other hand if you have a team with hardcarry and maybe one or two semicarries you
shouldnt farm too much except early game when you need to get your core ASAP. Note : i have never seen or played tiny as hardcore support - warbitch.
Support in that case means imo buying cheaper support stuff instead of farming excessively.
Pros and cons:
* Extremely versatile fun hero
* Lot of amazing moves
* Instagibing heroes
* Naturally tanky especially late
* Big mana problems early
* Very vulnerable to physical harrasment early - 0 armour
* Overall imo he is a bit subpar hero to crixalis
* Toss is buggy ( will be explained later )
