Whenever I’m playing support, I do a quick scan of the enemy team and take note of what CC dangers I might have to block. Stuff like Phinn pulls, Churnwalker stuns, Miho ultimates, San Feng glowy shiny wheels of doom, etc. Sometimes a game will have two or more high priority abilities that I’ll need to block, and I have a little trouble knowing what the highest priority is.
Right now, I feel like Miho’s ultimate is the most dangerous thing for the teams I’ve been playing with. Letting her get full marks on a group of players is just way too painful.
So, a couple questions for this thread:
- What’s the absolute highest priority thing you use your for?
- What’s your fallback for dealing with the second most dangerous thing?
All things being equal and normal (player skill, basically meta picks/bans, ability of players to get the most out of their abilities, etc), I’d say that Miho’s ult is my top priority, like I said above, so I’ll try to use my for that. I’ll usually try to get Cath if I’m up against a Miho, so I don’t have to worry about a Cath ult, but it’s possible I’ll still see a San Feng, who’s my next top priority in the hierarchy of things to block. In that case, I’ll get earlier than normal, and hope I can block the Miho, then outrun the CC of Feng’s ult. If I’m up against a Phinn and Miho though, I’ll try to reserve my for Phinn, then hope to use for a quick disengage if a straggling Miho ult comes in midway through a fight.
