Nexus Newbies #5: Tychus and the traitor Murky

Heroes Gosu “GosuGamers” Gamers

Episode 123, 4 

In this episode of Nexus Newbies, we look at a game our player Edwardo should of won.

Sure there were mistakes, but there were plenty of times in which a late game Garden of Terror was enough to close out the game. What happened? 

Edwardo plays a decent Tychus, but, like most assassin games we cover, he could play a lot safer. The best example of this is with his Odin play- Tychus gains 60% bonus attack range making it possible to attack any enemy without fear of retaliation. If this isn't utilized, Tychus becomes dead, quick.

Lessons Learned this episode:
 

  • Tychus is very good at dealing safe damage with his Overkill ability. Kite back and forth to minimize damage taken while dealing constant damage to the enemy
     
  • At level 4, Melting Points allows for some serious wave clear and siege damage. Tychus can clear lanes very quickly so always take advantage of this.
     
  • Odin is a powerful heroic that requires strong game sense to utilize perfectly. Call down Odin when the enemy can't afford to retreat and always from an extreme safe distance.
     
  • There comes a point on every Garden of Terror game where the Terror is better served in Team fights than pushing lanes. Be patient- you have 2 minutes to utilize it's strength. Don't rush forwards and take needless damage- A solo Garden terror rarely wins games.
     
  • Nexus Frenzy and Big Red Button are both suitable level 20 talents. Tychus is tanky enough with First Aid and Stoneskin that he can ignore Bolt of the Storm. If you talent Nexus Frenzy, make use of the increased range!
     
  • Don't let an ally that has proved incompetent with the terror grab it again. Ever.
     

Dorazion and Vannity have been playing Heroes since the earliest stage of the Alpha, going all the way back to the games first public appearance at BlizzCon. Their work in eSports exposes them to countless professional matches across all regions, and, as rank 1 players(currently trying to conquer the new patch grind) hovering around the 3300 MMR, helping out newer players without a firm grasp on optimal play behavior is exactly how they would like to spend their time.
