So, hi. I'm really new to the game. I just started a couple days ago and I've fallen in love with Silhouette.
I was originally playing in Matchmaking, but I can't play anymore because frequent crashing branded me a leaver, so I'm stuck in public games.
I can't deal with strength heroes. :c I don't know if it's because the people are too good, or what, but I just can't deal with them. They don't die in lane and then they get items and -still- don't die while rushing towards me and tearing me a new one. can someone offer some tips or help please? =/
This game has an extreme learning curve, but don't give up!
Anyway, when laning against melee heroes as a silhouette, they will probably kill you if you're "trading blows" when you both are full hp. So keep your distance and harrass them with your superior range.
If you level up your salvo, you are gonna hit very hard and will most likely force them to use all of their regeneration items early and eventually you will get the upper hand in lane.
Edit: Keep in mind that you have an escape mechanism in your tree grapple, use it!

I've sent you a PM, might be able to offer some help/pointers ingame.
Just in general- make use of your range and mobility. Dont let them get close. Whenever they go for a last hit on a creep, deny it if you can (might be hard if they have a hatchet) or just throw them 2-3 autoattacks. They will eventually drop low enough for you and your lane partner to make a kill. Important while laning against them is: Soften them up a bit first. It might seem they dont lose any health at first, but thats usually from them spamming regeneration items. They WILL run out fast if you harass them enough, leading to them not being able to get close to creeps anymore without fear of death. That results in no farm for them, and so on.
Also, Shieldbreaker helps a lot for those guys who pick up a helm of the black legion (Most STR Heroes). Pretty strong on Silhouette anyway with her passive.
Hon is fun once you learn how to play it properly. Go to the guide section and read up on as much as you can. Start with hon basics then laning, items, ganking, teamfighting, mid, etc. Then read a guide on the hero you want to play. Do this first and play a few games keeping in mind the things you read.
I would then suggest searching up youtube tutorial guides and watch as many as you can. Then play a few more games.
You want to do this first to build up good habits and proper game sense. It will help you decrease the learning curve by a lot. Yes it's just a game, but if you become a student of it you will have a lot more fun.
