How do you counter PL ?
Just bumped into him and the guy had 36 kills, 5 deaths ( claimed first time , doubt it )... I was playing my Lina and wasnt doing too bad but when the team fights came PL really messed me up... sooooo many illusions ( plus a enemy Huskar that looked a lot like PL at a quick glance ), and even his illusions were doing respectable damage plus invisibility... who the hell do I stun ? His cute throw a ball and make a illusion on your ass isnt fun either.
Seriously it was like 7 or 8 illusions and somewhere in that mix was a Huskar , with a Skeleton King running about stunning teammates and a Necro undoing all the hard work... and a Windrunner who was pretty forgettable.
I was sort of dealing with him by Dragon Slaving his massed illusions but he made them again so fast I couldnt keep up... and his main body was so tanky anyways so when I actually found the real one he could take a full Stun + Slave + Laguna and run off.
To be honest I think the matchmaker fucked up bad...I got 15 games in DOTA2, the enemy team was not playing like new players at all... SK had BKB early and never missed a reincarnate ( a new player would of sometime been too low in mana for it ), PL 35 kills first time...BS. The match was a total roflstomp and there wasnt a damn thing I could do at all.... we had Lone Druid ... who couldnt even tank the PL's illusions let alone the SK , Huskar ,Necro or Windrunner... a Lich who tossed his ulti a single PL illusion as a alpha attack, a Sniper that opened up with assassinate but had very little right click damage, a Lina (me , who was stunning illusions and blowing Lagunas on SK and Linken sphere carrying Windrunners ) and a Juggernaught who everyone ignored and could only spin around and run off.
How do you counter a PL and his 50 illusions, invisibility and put an illusion on yo ass trick ? Especially when he has ulti up and illusions are making illusions who make illusions who make illusions who make illusions... annoying as hell.
Sometimes keeping an eye on your stats is not a good thing
Some things are painfully obvious, others must be made obvious... painfully
