He does in fact, kill everything he touches, but he has no method of closing into the enemy on his own and he can only do damage with his melee attacks (Earthshock is not that hurtful when you consider it). The fact he can only be effective when he attacks physically means that you can use evasion items or accuracy drops to deter his combat ability, as well as Heaven's Halberd (which shuts off his melee attack for 3 seconds, which makes a big difference, plus you get nifty stats and evasion). You can also use slows because he needs to be in melee range to do any good, and that slow really makes a difference between saving your life or scaring him away (or if you can, kill him). You can also focus on him first so that his efforts go in vain.
What is also important is that you don't let him Rosh. Keep a watch on his inventory and see if he is building a vlads. If yes, keep a close eye on him and Rosh. The difference between him successfully roshing and not doing it really makes the difference in a game (stopping him from earning a 150-600 gold bounty, 500+ exp and the aegis). You should also try your best to deny him farm, because the last thing you need is an Ursa who can blink.
Good counters would be anyone who can shut him down with ease, like Slardar or Faceless Void.
FYI Doombringer is a counter to everyone mind you. His doom will shut down anyone it hits.
In my last game, Sven, the only disable on my team, disconnects half-way through when we are making a comeback. When the game ends, it counted as a loss.
I thought it didn't count as a loss if someone on your side disconnects and you lose?
These latest buffs made bloodseeker fuckin op. Can't be pushed out of the lane. Bloodrage + rupture = worse than doom, at least when you're doomed, you can move. Rupture might as well be a 9 sec stun too.
So laning with Ursa as Windrunner, being a nice support I am and somehow him not getting any farm at all (even with me babysitting), I buy Vladimir early so we can rush Roshan fast.
The whole game I stuck to him like Glue, and he still ended up buying a Vlads for himself after me countlessly telling him to not.
Pubs are retarded.
Stand still and you'll be fine. If he attacks you, fight back, you're screwed any way if you can't kill him.
Or you can tp
Broke my automerge -.-
how to counter blood seeker:
Also, BS coupled with anyone who has at least a ministun is rather scary. Make that Gondar for example. Invisible, ministun, bonus gold, slow.
Hey guys, anyone here know how frequent the beta invites go out? Applied a while back but don't really know how regularly they're sending invites out? If they are at all now?
Edit: Can't you teleport while bloodraged?
tried out ursa, gotta love being a useless piece of shit and spending all your time jungling like crazy
You people keep making it look like killing Ursa is easy stuff. Hell, killing anyone is easy stuff with burst/kiting/keeping them out of range.
Ursa is melee dominance fighter, thus he is supposed to be bursted down before he can reach his target. This is also why Ursa likes to kill Roshan so much and wasn't nerfed so that Roshan woudln't be soloable by him so early, he gets level advantage and Aegis, which allows him to suicide into enemy team and make them waste cc/nukes.
Ward is a hardcounter to Ursa.
Just played with a randomed Crystal Maiden who didn't buy wards or upgrade boots. And a Drow Ranger who farmed jungle and bought 2 sets of boots. We got absolutely decimated in teamfights due to Apparition and Zeus coordiated ultis.
Worst of all is Crystal Maiden blaming everyone else, and not being in teamfights herself because "she only has 700 hp".
need key :((
do they still give out keys?
