View Full Version : Armadon... once again.
So i am really struggling to face :arma:. Even if he gets dominated on lane he gets out of control once he got a :HelmOfTheBlackLegio and :BloodChalice:
I really dont know how i can effectively play against him especially if there is no proper carry to get a :shieldbreaker:
That passive makes him such a threat to kill and you rarely can afford most of your stuns to lock him making it possible to attack him from the front.
What do u play against him?

stack armor > hp, mana battery/ p supply, try to cc him and attack from the front. Hes not that good imo so easy to counter.
E: Also get plague shielding ppl the armor is huge
Yeah sure it makes laning easier against him but later on in a teamfight :PowerSupply:wont do anything. What i struggle the most with is that if you wanna cc him most projectiles are not fast enough to hit him before he turns around which means you gotta run around him to face his front and that is everything but easy since he will have :EnhancedMarchers: most likely and run after cc is over.

:RingOfTheTeacher: and PS are great early counters to arma, as well as a positive sols bulwark. But the best counter for armadon is to shut him farm early.

Also don't focus him on teamfights if possible.

I play Armadon all the time. Im not the best player by far but honestly the best way to counter Armadon is Predator, a smart Predator will actually use Armadon in a teamfight to heal himself when needed, then attack your other teamates, heal off you again when needed and finish you off last.
Now assuming nobody on your team chose Predator then Shieldbreaker is the next best option. Charged hammer works good too on heroes like Valk, Flint, Etc.
Powersupply isnt really a threat at all. Sure it will shut him down until about lvl 6, but then I just start ganking anyways.
A magic dmg heavy team can also easily shut down an Armadon unless he can get enough farm for a Behemoths heart.
Another thing, dont put someone in his lane who he can easily destroy like Ra. Whenever I see a Ra in my lane is basically a very easy first blood, this meens a quick pair of boots and scarab, it just steamrolls from there.

stack armor and decrease his armor will help you to get this fat armadillo down
also chain stunners doing very good job against him
try to attack from the front > it will make a huge difference.
