Dota 2 Auto Chess: Best Hero-Class Combos and Recent Changes
In the Previous Article - DOTA 2 Auto Chess: The Best Hero Class Combos and Tips - I mentioned a few Overpowered Hero-Class Combos but just like DOTA2, this popular custom map -- Auto Chess -- changes according to the patch.
Recent Changes and How they Affect the Game
I mentioned Elemental Mage as one of overpowered class, but it has been nerfed. Damage of Razor's Plasma Field was decreased and there was another nerf in the class-combo as well. So Elemental Mage is still not a bad class-combo because of how overpowered it was before the nerf but yes it is not as OP as before. You can play it as any other normal combo.
A few of the players complained about the Beast Master's ax being OP. Good news for them -- it is now nerfed. Tiny's initial HP increased. Phantom Assassin and Anti-Mage now have increased armor so don't complain about elves being too squishy, this is actually a good buff to the Elf class.
Troll Warrior's armor is now decreased by 5. Troll has good attack speed and he already gets a bunch of armor from the Warrior-Class combo. He was a little OP but now he is more balanced. Honestly, the nerf was not super needed because troll can be very, very rare at times and sometimes you are just not lucky enough and you play the whole game with one level 1 Troll. Maybe nerfing the armor and making him a little more available would be more balanced.
A lot of people complained about TB being broken. I always said that he is a little overpowered but not broken. Positioning matters a lot for TB and even your enemies' positioning can create trouble for your TB. He takes a little time to use the metamorphosis and then he needs the space to free hit.
So it's a lot of condition that needs to be fulfilled for a TB to work at his full power, which is most of the time nearly impossible. That kind of makes him not so viable even though he is a little overpowered. Well, the patch result says TB saw the least number of wins in the recent patches, so now he is buffed a little more with his increased magic resistance.
