Like when I picked a talent to force root and stuns on me so that I take less damage and waste their cooldown so that we could take them apart sure. I also wasn't always in siege mode but that's drunk milly for you I guess.

All I know is we lost and we almost always do when someone goes Hammer because it's Hammer. That's the only stat that really matters anyway right?

Survivor bias. Also Auto-Select QM shenanigans on Braxxis where it's mostly won or loss at the heroes draft screen which is non-existent for obvious reasons.

Truth, actually. Hammer sucks in QM for us. Whether it's one of us or a random. Agreed on Braxxis.

He's always been snarky. I don't think it's confidence, just comfort. I think he just didn't know how to take Milly's BM to begin with.

Talking a lot over voice tends to break down barriers and help in learning who that person really is. I honestly just didn't know how to handle Milly for a good while. The line in the sand was blurry at best.

Haha, the line is definitely blurry with Milly when it comes to whether he genuinely dislikes you or is just joking. Several years in they still sound and feel pretty similar.

Jeff Cannata sounds like Milly's buddy scrub.

Also was there no THH this week?

Good to know. Thanks for the reply.

I'm regards to Dehaka, I also read through that post. I finally felt like I was playing him really well finally and then they did this update. I'll probably give him a break to try some of the other heroes again. I'll miss you my essence hunting monster.

I think it's more he feels Blizzard failed to make it into something viable esports wise and last I saw (after the 2.0 announcement) he felt they were still failing to bolster it.

I guess it's a valid point, but my counter would be HGC is pretty awesome and the game has gotten significantly better from when he was around for just the casual players like us. Maybe it was just never gonna be a big esport to begin with. Maybe it could've been. But game wise the improvement has been leaps and bounds.

Colby had a fulltime big boy job that paid significantly more and the HOTS esports stuff wouldn't have paid him enough to stick with it.

Which is a shame, cause he was better than Jake on the mic.

That's how I play him. Once your axe glows hot it's time to murder everyone.

I actually played Butcher last night with two friends (Valeera and Diablo) and it was pretty hilarious. So much meat.

Butcher is like an edging simulator. You want that sweet release fresh meat but 80% of the time you hit your E button it's a bad, bad fucking idea. So you gotta learn to cancel that baby again and again until you've got your stacks and the mood is just right, then you go HAM.

Milly has an insane winrate with Butcher (~65% with a lot of games played IIRC) but I remain mystified how the hero has almost a 53% winrate in HL when nearly every other Butcher we encounter is just feeding left and right.

It's basically that. It's even better with Abattoir now because after the quest is complete, every time you kill a hero you keep hitting harder and harder.

The downside about choosing a support now in QM leads to be paired to an enemy team with a support.

I used to almost main all melee assassins there for a bit and I think I had them all above 50% WR with at least 30+ GP, except for Zera/Alarak of course.

Now, I hardly see a point to them when you can play a bruiser, do about the same damage and live a lot longer.
