uuuuuuuuuuuuuuugh, how do you win against/stop split pushing?! i just spent two hours of my life in two games because faggots were just split pushing when we had the advantage in almost every aspect?! i’m so frustrated! i’m just going to captain’s mode whenever we play as a stack
A few split pushers can be countered by certain heroes, that can suddenly gank them while they’re alone.
Nyx is a counter to Nature’s Prophet, Windrunner, and Dark Seer (He can also gank NP constantly in jungle) due to the burst damage and nuke that scales with mana pool (He bursts down int heroes).
Storm Spirit and Clockwerk provide huge long range initiation to deal with heroes like Weaver, Naga Siren, (Assuming she’s doing a rat dota build) and Nature’s Prophet. Storm will have to build a disable such as Scythe or Orchid, but those are useful on him anyways. Clock additionally can use Battery Assault to keep stunning NP if he tries to TP out.
Clinkz can potentially melt squishy split pushers, especially when he has his Orchid. He also can counterpush with his huge tower damage.
Basically anyone with potential ranged initiation and lots of lock down can deal with them somewhat well. If the issue is global presence, ALWAYS CARRY A TP. If you’re six slotted, you should have gotten BOOTS OF TRAVEL BEFORE YOU FINISHED YOUR 6TH ITEM SO THAT YOU CAN AFFORD TO CROWD UP YOUR INVENTORY.
You’re going to have to dedicate more resources than you’d like to stop them, usually. However, you can take advantage of the enemy being down a man by having lots of people who can contribute to teamfights (Not any more pick off heroes than necessary).
Hope this helps!
