Defenders 027: Tidehunter
December 16, 2011
Man. This guy is the best. I love Tidehunter, so thanks to Soldyhurr for the request.
I guess Tide’s biggest selling feature is ‘dat ult. Gush is great too, but his ult is what he’s known for. The other week I played the dirtiest game as Tide. Our team was:
… and someone else. But I don’t think it mattered.
It was me (Tide) and a friend (Lion) and some randoms up against a premade 5pack. They all had stupid matching names, and I thought we were done for. But man, either they were awful, or we were great, or some combination of the two. The synergy of AoE stuns between Tiny, Lion, and Tide was just insane. I would blink in, ult, and then we would just absolutely unload on the whole team. Avalanche, earth spike. Tossing, leaping, starfalling. We just obliterated these guys who had queued together and presumably planned their team. It was so satisfying.
And, really, it just kind of came out of thin air. We didn’t really plan our picks, which is why it was so nice to have it work out.
We’ve all got pub horror stories, but tell me about a time that you and some randoms really got it together and played well.
