Yes.

"Previous" SF meta of blink are being destroyed in DAC. Even from yesterday to today, people like Air, Mushi have changed to mek manta then other defensive items instead as blink SF are just being destroyed in these pro games.

Hey OCN'ers, i've been following this thread for a awhile now and have been wondering if the new immortals are going to be worth something in a bout a couple of months. Further, does somebody maybe have a Golden barb to trade with me tongue.gif I have the other immortals , but want the Golden for my slark :3

The immortals from the DAC compendium wont be worth much of anything since the market will be flooded like the TI4 immortals. Price will start out high once they become marketable/tradable in a couple months then the price drop to almost nothing.

Yeah the market atm really stick. I think it's partly due to the no trade for three months, then you'd see a huge drop in price due to the flood of items. Only reason why I went DAC was to see if I could trade for a SF arcana. I doubt that will ever happen.

ATM the SF meta is disgustingly weak. Either you do well and wreck, or get stomped by any mid ganking rotations. It really sucks for me as I'm still around early 3k, and sometimes you get teammates that know mid sf don't gank and need TP protection and counter gank when getting ganked, or the other team knows to roam support and gank mid constantly. I'm seeing players like Xiao8, dreamyU and Air just constantly getting destroyed mid in DAC quals last two days. The only solace is when their team plays great and they get to come back with team lockdowns and fights during mid game. Mushi on SF did very well last two games though.

But man, every SF except dreamyU in stomps (with MOM) has gone mek first item then bkb.

it's only natural for SF to either own or feed due to how his soul collection works. If he gets his souls easy enough and don't lose it very often, he will only snowball like crazy because he has in average 60 more damage than anyone else at lv 8. This number only becomes less significant when mid-late game approaches. On the other hand, if he dies once every 5 minutes, he becomes very inefficient as he constantly works(very slowly) to get the souls back, and will potentially get a lot less kills because he might not be at max souls when the next fight breaks out which is a vicious cycle

Think HR got a game yesterday (or earlier today for you westerners) with SF in his more usual builds and did pretty well with it, provided the fact that their line-up is very humble with SF being the primary physical damager (carry was Axe IIRC). I would assume Mek SF works great in a line-up where he tries to fill the "viper-role" in the game.

not only the souls, but the razes too.. + they have been buffed.

I know, but the razes give constant value of damage while available souls are entirely death-based. Therefore, death provides an anti-snowball effect for SF more so than other heros, if you know what I'm getting at.
