As the title shows , I'm looking for how to counter people who guess the rune location . I don't mean people who have wards vs people who don't (thats your own fault ) But more so people who stand at the rune spawn till it spawns for a 50/50 chance of getting it. I assume contesting them if you have a suitable hero is a good idea but other than that i'm not quite sure. I know i'm not the best player in the world but any help is appreciated
If he leaves for the rune early just farm mid. If he gets the rune, fine, you just got lots of free farm. If he doesn't get it you get free farm AND you get the rune.
You can call in a person from the sidelane to assist you get an easy kill and GG mid.
You really don't get "tons of farm" if the opposing middle hero leaves for the rune 10seconds before it comes, you get some uncontested last hits(Max 4) and that's it. The only way i really know to "counter" this is by denying everything as soon as you can, so you deny the opposing hero as much xp and gold as possible. And of course hope it doesn't spawn so you get it without losing xp/gold.
If you're playing a hero with an AOE spell, nuke down the wave at x:50 so your creeps push to his tower. If he leaves for the rune, he loses exp and you get farm, as well as damage on his tower. When he comes back, regardless of whether or not he got the rune, you should have a gold advantage and exp advantage over him.
You should buy a ward if your teammates won't. If he continues guessing at the rune, let him go, if you see that it spawned at the spot he went to, warn that lane and keep farming. if it spawns at the other spot, you're almost guaranteed to get it.
I am so clever that sometimes I don't understand a single word of what I am saying.
Thanks for the advice guys . I always tend to buy a ward if the support refuse (Im still 1500 after all) . The advice to nuke the creeps / Ganking them seems solid . Its just rather annoying to be beating someone on nomad and them camping the rune spot to get it but i guess its just part of the game
Ask the hard support to just roam and guard the rune at 50 sec. If he has striders it will take him no effort at all and possibly get both of u a kill if your opponent is squishy or merely bad.
Free farm, inform teammates that mid has gone missing. Hag WILL do this, either 50/50 it or have a ward for it. Either way if you are versing hag, she can blink, therefore you can not catch her anyway, you MIGHT AS WELL farm.
Peace the Fcuk out HoN. DotA is back!

Push the lane hard and hope the HoN gods favour you by screwing him over.
