Defenders 057: Lycan
April 10, 2012
Hot damn. DK prints are done. Check em out here. I’ve got a lot of stuff in the pipes, but it’s just going to have to wait. In the meantime, go vote for the next hero to be printed: http://adamcbeamish.com/vote
Those of you that have played with me are probably aware that I don’t normally play carries. This is partly because they don’t fit my personal playstyle, which tends to be mostly cautious, but also because (in pubs at least) carries are overrepresented, so I feel that I’m helping the team more by playing support.
All that changed a couple weeks ago.
You can call me a noob, or scrub or whatever, but I really like playing Lycan. I can’t exactly pin down why, but I think it’s because he’s a jungler. I’ve always liked jungling heroes. Jungling is like a little game unto itself, where you’re stacking and pulling and trying for optimal efficiency. I suppose laning is a bit like that too, but when you (sort of) remove the threat of the enemy team, it becomes much more pure. I also really love the wolves. I love everything about them. They add a bit of micro to an otherwise straightforward right-click hero, and it’s so satisfying to use them to scout, harass, chase, or cover my retreat.
It probably doesn’t hurt that he has some of the best voicework in the game.
Anyway, I said it. I’m having a love affair with Lycan, and I don’t care who knows. What about you? What hero do you just have to play? Is there someone you pick in a disproportionate number of your games?
