Shadowcleave viable?

09 January 2015 - 02:05 PM

What sort of state is shadowcleave in right now?

I'm no elite player nor a great thinker when it comes to the game but from my 40-50 games experience with it so far this season it really feels weak in the current melee cleave meta. Almost every game (probably 90% of losses) involved both melee on the other team killing my lock's pet with cc on me (the healer) and then simply tunneling him into the ground. This strategy felt hard to counter for us with my lock feeling like being trained shuts down a lot of his dps and my dk feeling as though he had no reliable peels to allow my lock to get anything off. The problem became even worst against teams with offensive dispels (which feels like most of them nowadays).

Is this comp as gimped as it feels with the lock being tunneled or is this a serious l2p issue? I'm happy for either answer but some general advice would be great.

Dealing with MLS as LSD

08 July 2014 - 03:44 PM

Hi all!

I've started playing arena more seriously over the past few weeks, and am playing LSD at 2.1-2.2k mmr right now. Since breaking 2100 today we've been queuing into a couple of MLS teams which are the only teams giving us any consistent difficulty right now, particularly on RoL.
Overall we tend to split games close to 50/50 with MLS (perhaps slightly their way), however almost all of the losses occur on RoL.

It feels as though their control allows them to completely shut down our warlock, destroying our pressure. We've tried playing more aggressively, pushing in for counter cc to allow us to get some pressure started, however ultimately this seems to be a bad move as it exposes me to a lot of CC which eventually leads to a kill on my shaman in CS+Deep while I'm running laps of the map in fear.

Can anyone offer some general advice as to how we go about killing this comp more effectively? I know mages give ele a hard time, but at 2.1 we've obviously still got improvement left in us and we plan on pushing higher.  

Cheers.
