    Lina:
    - Aghanim's Scepter which makes ulti pierce immunity.
    - High AS due to passive

    Luna:
    - High AS due to agility hero
    - High burst damage with Eclipse + Lucent Beam

    Comments:
    - Both will get BKB to counter the burst, and with Laguna piercing
    - Laguna might be evaded with a Linken's
    - Fight comes down to initiation. Will Lina hex Luna first and burst down? Or will Luna, in a 1v1 situation, who might go Hex, do the same thing back?

    Comparisons like these are almost meaningless.

    Yeah I didn't want to say anything because people tend to enjoy thinking of it like this, but looking at what hero would win in a 1v1 situation is not a constructive thing to do. Sometimes one hero might win and sometimes another with the exact same setup every time. It might not even be close in HP.

    If you loose a teamfight 0-5 with all the enemy heroes at full HP then that doesn't necessarily mean that in a parallell universe you wouldn't have won 5-0 with all your heroes at full HP. Same logic often goes for 1v1, espacially if the heroes have high burst and low HP or if it's not farmed carry v underfarmed support or whatever.

    I know that this formula works great as a forum game for people but if we want to have a meaningful discussion we should probably come up with deeper topics that are more true to how the game actually plays.

    As a side-note I want to point out that I haven't made a thread here myself yet so I haven't really contributed to expand upon the content that much. I don't want to be that guy that just comes and shits on other people's creative ideas and give nothing back until nobody dares say anything or start a new topic. So please don't feel discouraged by comments like this one. Just keep in mind the complexity of what the game really is when you come up with ideas and threads and stuff. I'd still love for people to come up with more posts and topics in different directions. =)

    It was about Lina and Lion tho ;_;
     
  4. Riki VS Mordred

    Riki is more of a laner since his skills allow quick jabs to last hit and an emergency smoke screen for harassing.

    PA sucks in a lane but is relatively okay in jungle. Grabbing a few more tangos and potions with the stout shield, going for either mask of madness or dominator. Of course this makes your build more defensive but it allows you to go for satanic late-game since PA's crits are insane.

    However your primary build will be with Blur rather than grabbing daggers and blink strikes. But as it gives a really huge evasion chance, jungle should be easy as pie for you. As it is right now:

    Dodge Chance: 20%/30%/40%/50%

    20% Dodge at level 1 is a huge deal. Combined with Stout Shield for Proc Chance: 53% - Blocked Damage (melee): 20. Tangos for creeps up to level 4 and potions after big creep fights.

    Buying a ward is also a good idea, if you can afford it or if your team has no support.

    Lina VS Lion

    Lion. Best MID hero in the game. 500 damage on level 6 with two cc effects and a mana drain?
