    I don't know why but whenever I play this game I end up battling for the victory against ES. The hero seriously needs a nerf... I always get disabled and then gangraped for insane amounts of damaged. It goes like this usually.

    1. I rip the massive buttplug out of my ass and bend over in the middle lane, ass facing the river.
    2. ES comes in out of nowhere and starts RAPING ME. I CAN'T DO SHIT.
    3. ???
    4. Another hero to kill me.
    5. I die

    I cannot mid with an ES in the game. Hero hard game is what for it.

    Sniper's also really good since he outranges blink with both Shrapnel and autoattacks, and this also means he's usually out of range of Echo Slam. Assuming we mean ES = Shaker that is.

    Oh um, yeah that seems more likely lol. I thought it might've been Earth Spirit, but Ember didn't even cross my mind.

    Back in dota 1, I'd just pick SK. Gank with burrowstrike, stun again with wraithfire blast, then dps with your metamorphosis.

    Take both wards for yourself if you see that cancer again.

    After all, if he is ganking you, offlaner gets a free lane.
    I prefer picking CM, banning heroes, and providing mana for my team.

    @Mimic:
    ES stands for Earth Spirit, Earth Shaker or Ember Spirit, please elaborate.

    Naix should do just fine. Well ES can block him with Fissure but anyhow, he cannot chainstun Naix and his Totem damage is easily resolvable by Naix healing. Actually he can rip ES in rather short time, probably during the rage duration since standard ES´s don´t get to buy alot of tanky items.. and more HP does not necessarily mean as bonus vs Naix.
