Hey everyone, NinjaX here with a quick guide. The strategy is based on using Bounty Hunter to shut down Lycan. This piece of knowledge is passed on to me indirectly from Dendi. You basically sit in the jungle and last hit all his farm until he becomes so weak that he can't even do anything mid-game. I can imagine some counters to this strategy like sentries, but I think there are ways to play around it anyways.

Tell me what you guys think

nope, you fail, you are so poor while lycan is richer. if lycan lvl6 go lane, micro the wolf to farm in jungle, you will be behind.

One more thing, you cant stop the lycan push with bh.

Beastmaster is a good counter - you scout w/ Hawk & his ulti goes through Lycan's BKB (so does Batrider's).

You just destroyed the meaning of BH as a hero!
If you're a BH player, you don't care at all about enemy team having Lycan. What matters the most, is that how much exp are you getting. The best lane for a BH is soloing a hard-lane, once you hit the level 6 around 6-7 mins, just go roaming like a mad man. Your team will make a comeback even after 10k gold difference.

the point is to hold him down on exp mostly, for the first few lvls. having a bh following him in the wood is a fairly weak option ! if they jungle him bh wont face more then 2 heros on lane which basically means he can easily solo the short lane. this way you can have a jungler aswell in enemies territory and make lycans life hell. you win 1 lane for sure + lycan cant farm + bh can exp at an ok rate. solo lane outcome is up to your picks. this way you wont lose a single lane by default. the only thing you need to care about is the enemies transition into push when lycan gets lvl 6-7.
