    PA doesn't do shit against Sniper if you know positioning.

    And how will PA 'position' herself to get to a Sniper?

    How will PA NOT use her Blink Strike on him? For a start. Why do you enjoy making such stupid assertions?

    No really.. a really GOOD sniper is one of the worst enemy carries there is.

    No one can reach him.. blinks or no.. and he hurts a tad lot even with only a mael due to the number times he can hit you.

    Pair him with a good 4.. and damn

    Its harder for a PA to get in position than a sniper actually.. as PA needs to dive as well as have an exit strategy.

    While snipers just basically runs to a different spot when someone attempts to get close or pike out when someone manages to blink in his face.. and then you'd have to deal with his teammates you're currently in the middle of while there's like only 2 people in your team that can be in any position to help you.

    Problem with PA gets worse the longer the game goes as well.. esp. with a 5s BKB.
    She can only reliably manage to reliably kill one target - and that is if she's ahead.
    Then that 'one' target should be a 'key' target which is mostly the mid or the 4..
    Mids tend to be rich, well protected and hard to assassinate really.. and 4s are mostly tanky fucks (damn walrus just won't friggin die)

    The only time I see a Sniper being a nightmare for a PA is by outfarming her a lot and getting a Pike to push her away as well as the knockback passive but. Then if PA gets a BKB, that no longer works. Also, at any given time she can just harass the hell out of him with Daggers. Laugh if she actually gets a critical on him off a simple Dagger from 1200 range.

    Otherwise he's ridiculously easy to pick off. We have been here before btw... kinda.
