In general, what is better? last game i played was SD we had a :nymp::nigh::wret::blac: and I had a choice between :glad: or bombadier... I felt that in a battle a blacksmith and NH wouldn't be good enough to suck up nukes so I decided to go :glad:... I realised that our bot lane playing hellbourne had :glad::blac: which was okay because we were against :scou::fayd: (lol) but had there been 1 ranged in that lane it would have been very easy to dominate.... in general is 3 ranged better than 2 ranged?

in general you need at least 1 ranged in every 2v2 lane
so if you're going 2-1-2, 3 melee is okay as long as one of your melee is mid.

Eh, you can't really say what you exactly need every game, though in general more range is better. Depends on your mid, typically you don't want double melee in lane unless in pub ofc theres some combos that work really well like electrician and swiftblade. If you have a melee mid, then you can do 3 melee 2 ranged, if you have a ranged mid you should do 3 ranged 2 melee. With your setup I would put hag mid, nymph can babysit nh bot, and with blacksmith, you can do either do glad or bomb. My first choice would be bomb because bomb is all magic and your hammer would up his dmg plus provide an extra slow\stun for him, you could have wrecked. Glad is still ok though since his passive is almost like a ranged harass, so it works.

3 melee can work if you got a strong melee mid, but be careful because it's harder to do lane switches, and having lots of ranged in general make laning easier.

5 ranged is the best, sorry.
