Defenders 045: Silencer

January 30, 2012


Killsbury, back again.  This time he’s asked for Silencer, and the sacred rites and traditions of the Internet say I must oblige him.

In my humble opinion, he is the most annoying hero to play against.  Not because I lose to him particularly often, but more so because of the way he disrupts the standard flow/pace of gameplay.

Lots of heroes have one or two annoying skills, but I really think Silencer takes the cake.

Curse of the Silent?  Super annoying unless you’ve got a low cost, low cooldown spell you can spam.
Glaives of Wisdom?  Annoying orb harass.  Also, it’s pure damage!
Last word?  Your Lion/ES/Sandking can no longer combo.  Instead, run around like an idiot for 3 seconds every time you cast a spell.
Global Silence?  Possibly his least annoying spell, if only for its long cooldown, but still incredibly disruptive.

Yeah, it can be frustrating to play against Silencer, but at the end of the day I like that he makes the game feel different.

So, who do you think is the most annoying hero to play against and why?

    I’d say maybe Weaver, at least in uncoordinated pubs. So frustrating to see him escape, time and time again.

    I hate Night Stalker especially during night time, he will rape you to death. The only thing u can do is to stay out of sight from him.

    Make Shadow Fiend for me plsss!:D

    Do a print of CLINKZ EASTWOOD! <3

    As for annoying heroes… I'd say Night Stalker too, you have to play around him quite carefully to prevent him gaining momentum.

    Anti-mage. Such a terrible fucking hero, so stronk and once he hits a tiny amount of farm (which u cant stop as long as he’s a decent blinker) he’s virtually unstoppable.

    Other runner-ups: invoker, cause… u know… 10 ulties.

    If there was no silencer, then Dota would just be a game of AOE stun CC spam teampwnage game. Silencer does add a cherry to the cake. :)

    But i have to admit. his curse is super annoying.
