    Xuldorl I need me some PIE!

    I've been experimenting with a bg and I wanted to get input to help polish it more. So far it has proven alright against the AI once it gets going, but I don't feel it is anywhere near competitive yet. The premise is Large units, taking every advantage I can from that. As things stand, I plan to make some changes but I need to build up more points to spend on new runes first. That said, here is what I am working with.

    Current (iteration 2):

    Cyclops Chieftain
    Cyclops Earthshaker (x2)
    Cyclops Mauler (x2)
    Cyclops Primal (x2)
    Drudge Cyclops (x2)
    Eager Cyclops (x2)
    Greater Pitspawn
    Vothsair Ireguard (x2)
    Vothsair Reaver
    Vothsair Vanguard (x2)

    Boundless Enthusiasm
    Fiery Ambush
    Havoc's Touch (x2)
    Sacrifice (x2)
    Shattered Nerves

    Altar of Votaev
    Griefbearer's Fountain

    Earthshaker's Bracelet (x2)
    Mammoth Club [Not fixed yet though]

    I intend on working in the Mammoth Club once that is fixed, and I'm thinking on moving towards phasing out most of the non-vothsair demons in favor for other natively arrow eating monstrosities. That said, what input do you have? Any directions to improve upon this?

    It’s expensive and non efficient, but a fun combo that fits SP UD 2x2 is

    Lower beast of sheoul
    Helm of chaos
    Magnify beast

    You get an impervious, shielded, high hp, aura champ and confuse stops shatter abilities.

    I honestly haven't given that rune a glance in a while. Maybe I should now..

    Thats an interesting combo. My only issue with it is LBoS has Backlash and I utilize Havoc's Touch (in tandem with the inherent perk of being part SP) to overcome the costs inherent to these champions. So far Vothsair Ireguard + Havoc's Touch + Earthshaker's Bracelet has proven to be devastating. Not perfect, as there are counters in the form of shatter, other spells, or even just a melee attacker who doesn't do physical.. But it has proven to be effective.

    With all those arroweaters you might squeeze in a tempest crown...

    Oo.. Thats a good point. Maybe two. They would go great on Vothsair..

    Another couple of things...

    Spirit of the Mountain for sure.

    Add a cyclops eye belt for knockbacks into terrain, the earth shaker bracelet champ, the SOTM and the SOTM projection.

    Also Paper Wings on an ireguard is rather nice. Better than boundless enthusiasm for me.

    I would go 1x crown and 1x Paper wings

    I would run a couple of 1x1 champs just so you don't get rekt by the map.

    Well ‘yes’ but that’s not the point of the bg, right?

    I mean i guess but 1/3 of the time you will simply auto lose because of the map.

    You need Alpine Cyclops with Mountaineer to improve on map restrictions.
