Ophelia is that avoided hero in the lower brackets. Like many I've tried to explore the unexplored waters.
But she's just a mess. The hard thing with her isn't just her micromanagement, it's that she has to do EVERYTHING.
Farm, gank, ward, counterward, push, and to top it all off she has a global ulti (making you need to keep a keen eye on the situation all across the map at all times).
I really can't manage to balance this. I try to gank, but they've warded the place (which you often don't expect at ~1500 mmr) so they just go back as soon as I come close. So I try to roam a bit to gank but since she has such incredibly poor initiation ability and the enemies are cautious, I can't manage to catch them.
So then I try to conuterward a bit. I roam around some more. Now I've spent so much time in the river I'm 2 levels below everyone else.
It's really like S2 were like "let's try to make the hardest hero even thinkable". Ugh
