    I've seen some old threads about fixing Lich's ult usage, but some more suggestions:
    • He should as much as possible save Chain Frost for teamfights especially when midgame hits. Sometimes he fires it off when we are ganking one overextended enemy hero at full health and 4 of their buddies are alive and nearby, leaving us with one less crowd control if a teamfight ensues. Frost Blast should be highly preferred on single targets if it's available. Having him just autoattack is IMO better than wasting Chain Frost. But against 2 close enemy heroes running away from us with no creeps nearby? Fire away.
    • During laning phase with a carry, he should prioritize Sacrifice on the ranged creep if there is one, that way the enemy wave gets pulled to your tower and safer farming for your allied carry player. He seems to basically cast Sacrifice currently on whatever allied creep is nearby or whoever has highest HP. That's nice, but the ranged creep is better.
    • When alone, at low HP, and running from the 5-man enemy ball of death he should not stop to cast Frost Armor on me while I force staff him to safety. Sometimes he doesn't know to behave after being staffed and runs back to the enemy team (probably the force staff usage breaking his AI pathing or something)
