Defenders 024: Bloodseeker
December 9, 2011
Boom. Here is swired’s request, Bloodseeker. Xenono did some pretty cool wallpapers based off of this series. Check them out my tendency to over-use whitespace gives you a headache.
Ahhh, Bloodseeker. I think everyone who plays Dota for any length of time has probably gone through the BS phase. Either where you were playing him, or getting owned by him. I don’t think he’s really a competitive hero, but can he ever make a mess of pubs. For the uninitiated, being jumped by Styg alone in the woods is probably going to invoke the “flight” response… with sexy results.
Rupture is a pretty unique mechanic, but once you get over the scare factor, it’s usually just best to wait it out. Which really makes it sort of useless at higher levels of play, and I think it’s a little weird to have an ability that gets worse as you (and your opponents) get better.
Of course, there are worse ultimates. I think Drow’s is pretty bad (and by “bad” I guess I mean “totally boring”), and so is Bristleback’s (which is not a bad skill, but doesn’t feel very ultimate). So, that will be our talking point for today. What do you think are the worst ults in the game?
