Practical Lycan Counters?
Posted 28 June 2012 - 10:18 PM
Some games my team will literally win every lane and still lose cuz we ignored him in jungle, some games my team will gank him none stop but end up losing because it cost us other lanes plus he just ends up coming back neways cuz all he needs is like 2 items to steamroll.
Any suggestions of heros or strats used to counter lycan would be much appreciated!

Or you can do a trick we did few times (although i was playing with friends) - we ganged his forest in 4 guys, ousted him from the jungle and at 1:00 we double stacked all the camps so he was not able to farm at all for some time : ) a little trolling :-D
or you can just harrash him in the jungle with an enchantress who will be enchanting his wolves while he's farming from lvl 1, if it's a pub it would be hard for him to get a help from his team to remove her ~ and ofc have a control of rosh and don't let him solo it. all you need to stop him there is a stun or smth that will kill the wolves.
Question - does ice wall go through shapeshift?

@ Depends which lycan, if it's the combat one (vlads medallion bkb) bat & enigma counters him very well, if it's the pushing one it's a little tougher, but basically a midas hero, you can kill blue necro with midas without taking damage, and having chen/ench take over the ranged one is quite good. But my best tip: if you don't have firstpick, ban him.

Ganks only cost you 1 minute of Lane time then. What would also help you is a long laner who can hold the lane while his partner ganks Lycan.
Veno, WR or Weaver come to mind now.
And last but not least: push out the lanes. Lycan is heavily dependent on his team holding the lanes. If you push the towers down, that surround his jungle, farming is a lot harder for him.
For the tldr: Many wards, global heroes, someone holding the long lane and a lot of pushing power

But i do like the outpushing suggestion that makes alot of sense. If u can roll all the tier 1 towers early then hes under alot of pressure to jungle. But the thing with that is if ur running a push comp are u going to be strong enuf mid game to take him on where he is strongest?
