I always get hit by his storm bow no matter what and it hits like a truck, like almost more than a single Chromie Q. Do I side step it? Do I hide behind minions when playing against him?
I can dodge Chromie’s abilities easy peasy since they are telegraphed. I can dodge every of Ming’s skillshots since they travel so slowly. I can dodge Orphea’s Q which has a delay, KTZ’s chains which the second chain can be juked, and pretty much any skillshot in the game. Even Azmodan’s dunk which has somewhat of a delay. Except Hanzo’s Q, which not only shoots out instantly, but also long range and can be talented to trigger an explosion behind a minion. I can’t even sidestep it because it’s instant cast so no matter where I go he’s going to get an easy hit on me and worse even chase me with it.
I don’t understand why they completely gutted Chromie last year due to having long range poke but left Hanzo completely untouched. I would rather face against Chromie any time of the day. At least she has no mobility, has atrocious PvE, and has a massive delay on her skillshots. But no let’s gut the long range artillery mage but leave a similar hero who has an escape, who has PvE, and who has CC who’s 1000x more annoying to face against completely untouched. At least make him like Varus in LoL where you move slowly when charging up your storm bow allowing for counterplay but no, he can land an easy storm bow on you with zero penalties. Oh and his Q costs a measly TEN mana which is less than any other mana using hero in the game. Comparison wise Nova’s snipe costs FIFTY.
Anyone who doesn’t think he’s OP, he’s one of the most played ranged assassins in competitive games since he’s essentially a better Nova, better Valla, and better Chromie.
