This is the only hero in the game that I feel is way too strong, and I find myself saying this even when he is on my own team. The damage output is just insane... and the slows and mobility as well as disjoints. Put this hero in the hands of any 1780+ and he just tears **** up and can carry pretty damn well for how strong his early game is. Even pro players tend to say he is too strong. Discuss.
Era himself said that the hero relies on enemies being alone during the early game so that he can get those early kills and snowball into mid-game.
For this reason, Monkey King is rarely picked in competitive games and is more of a pub-stomp hero.
I don't think he's OP, just a strong hero when played by a good player against lesser skilled players.
Kongor: The King of Kings
Just an annoying hero who is hard to click if not stunned quickly.
Does piss for **** in the late game compared to carries.
I wouldn't consider a hero that can take on a full group of 1700+ players so easily a "pubstomper". These are players with a lot of skill, yet there is almost nothing they can do about him. His cooldowns are so much more remarkably shorter than Deadwood's remains serious the whole game rather than once every however long deadwood punch cooldown is.
tbh i think he would be a balanced hero if his vault was remade
Monkey king is a wonderful hero, you can call him "overpowered" but there is no such thing as overpowered, it all depends on the players of the game, depending on who is MK he can MAKE MK over powered, but if the enemy is smart and pubtrains, MK vs pubtrain without sh is pisspoor
lol sh to counter a MK...lol k ^
He's simply not a strong asset in team fights while excellent in 1v1 situations. Makes him valuable in random pub play but unloved in dedicated teams.
It really all depends on who's hand's MK is placed in..
but yes vault really need's to be tinkered with, maybe?
Monkey king is easy to shut down.
Just pick witch slayer and ward, eezee peezee.
sorry bro, no cool Sig for you, too many infractions.
Formally known as `SOBRAVE (bad habit of getting a name change every 2 months or so)
