People in this game tend to be a bit uncreative. This is mostly due to the “meta” perspective; in each patch, a few professional teams figure a very, or the most, effective approach to win and the rest of the world just copies that and just that.
I’m not suggesting they shouldn’t, however that does always leave quite a bit of unused potential in a few Heroes. Consider how many times a Hero becomes overpowered with a just a few buffs, simply because they were already good, but nobody paid attention to them.
Here’s a few I think deserve a little more recognition. I’m not pointing out undiscovered broken ones, at least not necessarily, just a few that could still work pretty well.
Perhaps due to the rise of mobility/sustainability items, everyone considers his brewlings can be kited easily, or perhaps they feel he’s too reliant on his ult. While these may be true, he can still be a big threat, and his Drunken Haze can really screw certain Heroes over.
By the time said right-clicker comes online, the enemy will have Diffusals and the such. Omniknight is a great Hero for pushing strategies also though. A Leshrac, for instance, buffed up with Repel for the first half of the game is something that can’t be easily ignored; kiting him is one thing, but towers can’t dodge. He could even work with a Drow Ranger-centered tactic.
