Why is it that this is never seen in comp play?
Something like a VJ-witch-FA seems incredibly powerful, esp to counter a trilane that has a melee carry in it.
In any dota replay ive watched ive never seen this happen either & i really cant see why not.
I guess it's because with melee heros it is much easier to last hit, and also because str heros scale extremely well especially if they get a good amount of farm.
But again I'm just guessing, so I don't really know.
well honestly i think its mainly because fa cant out carry TDL/sw/chronos
well, thatd be true if we never saw a ranged carry trilane, which we do. Yet these always have a melee semi support (behe/magm) or atleast a semi ranged (myrm/andro) in them. Ive literally never come across a tri w 3 full ranged heroes.
I was just looking at a few DotA replays and iv noticed that raged tri lanes are really common. I think its because there are only two ranged carries in HoN that work well in a "all ranged" tri lane, Sniper and FA.
If there were more ranges carries, Drow Windrunner Medusa, we'd most likely see a "all ranged" tri lane.
Windrunner aint a Trilane Carry. Windrunner always takes the Solo Lane.
I suppose thats one explination yeah. It's kinda suprising to not see them in those tris either though :|.
Like even when EG trilaned w puppet, they added moraxus rather than another ranged.
OT: a hero like windrunner would be amazing for hon to imo

Tri-lanes are designed to get farm to heroes that would not normally be able to farm. However its not that ranged carrys have never been done in tri-lanes, its less common.
- typical trilane supports.
Now what about possible ranged carrys for trilane?
Options just dont seen as good as lets say,
thats not what i was talking about.
We see plenty of fa-flint-puppet trilanes, yet they always add add a melee to those rather than having 3 ranged.
I'm pretty sure a tri-lane of Glac/Voodo/FA/Witch has been done more then once.
My Stream, where you can ask questions about anything HoN/HoN Tour related
HonTour Admin. PM with any questions.
because magmus/behemoth have stronger aoe stuns that help in the tri lane... Voodoo Jester/Glacius/Andromeda stuns dont compare and Witch Slayers stun isnt even as strong as magmus lava surge or a behemoth block.
I think OK ran such tri lanes all the time with Mag1x on FA/Flint.
I've seen windrunner in a trilane, though she usually gets a solo
same thing with medusa
Even so, doesnt explain why we even see moraxus in a tri rather than smth ranged.
And if anybody says that you've seen it done, can you link a replayid or vod please?
Dual ranged alone makes it pretty easy to throw in a melee and melees like Sven and ES are insanely strong in trilanes.
