Phantom lancer is too imba
After playing a few games against PL, my honest opinion is that his ability to create TONS OF illusions is too strong. Often a team of three of use gets killed because there are so many illusions that we can never find the real one (and none of us has any ability that can). Riki's permanent invisibility can be a pain without a gem, but this is ten times worse.
I suggest the number of max illusions he can have to be reduced.
And the funny thing about his suggestion is that he doesn't know there used to be no limit to his illusions.
In all due honestly, though: Pick a hero with some AoE, reveal the true PL through damage, throw dust, proceed to rape him.
sorry but pl is not to strong, ur just too bad ._.
easy solution for you:
pick pl every game from now on
see that u end up 0-20 every game
realize that you are bad
PL is overpowered? LOL.
i still haven't found a PL in pub win against me yet.
Lion (lvl 6) + dust = GG all day.
If the game goes super late/you have no AOE...GL...its common sense to the average dota player. Goes without saying for any late game hero, if he is getting farmed and you have nothing on him at the 35-40 m mark...then its gonna be OP.
Also account for the fact that pubs rarely play well as a team. Solution, play with friends, stop playing AP every game or pick pl yourself. Dude is pretty shit hero till later on.
Like others have stated in this thread, I have not seen a WTF BADASS PL yet. He needs a lot of farm and baby sitting to get good. That being said, if there is a fed and skilled PL on the team then sure he is tough to deal with. Gem doesnt completely counter him and depending on his item build those images can HURT. I generally pick PL in games with squishier heroes that dont have very powerful AOE.
But this belongs on playdota.com.
TL;DR - Any lategame hard carry is 'OP'
As they say...
Gank him and you'll be fine.
Go to playdota, make this same thread except replace "too imba" with "terribad shit tier" and ask for buffs because he definitely needs some.
