Since Footmen Frenzy 5.4 died some players (example DevilsRebel or Dan) started play CHF and they brought 5.4 style into CHF. They always ago unholy, trueshot, lasso and vengeance with turtles and scroll of beast. They have always tier 2-3 after mass with high attack upgrade.
Is it possible counter this tech just with 1 hero with some old classic CHF build like for example chain+forket+ww+death tower? Old CHF players like Cou or Roystom used golems long time ago but it was still possible counter with lizzards, turtles or with charm, explosion, bladestorm etc. But this 5.4 rush strategy is impossible counter in my opinion.
There is 3 replays from today... you can see FTL Roystom and FTL Yeferzon lose 3 games in a row vs these 5.4 players who are new in CHF. They went spider tech vs FTL who went golems-newts and lose in 10 minutes:
i guess 3 games in a row is not only bad luck for FTL... this is new gameplay of CHF
angryroger: nope trust me... FTL had AoE (Yefer shockwave+chain lighting and Roy flamestrike+carrion swarm) and FTL also get 2 hero mass but 5.4 players still get more exp after mass because they used hex on FTL and rats... they hex hero, then catch him with blazzing lasso and kill him in like 2-3 seconds (fiends attack upgrade + scroll of beast + turtle aura stacking with normal command aura) this is impossible and no chance use teleport or aoe spells... and FTL is best (now is better use word "was") best team in CHF... they have best winrate vs teams TAS, TDT or APF etc.
adam if ftl so easy lose vs tech players 5.4 they not best. *Pro FTL* could try to play more than 20 min if they pro. may be this is bad luck how you talk, but look. Hex eeasy dispel jamie, aso easy silence, spiderson aoe. silence on ftl dispel golem . they micro players i think micro with aoe better then tech spiders only if 1v1 if 2v2, may be bad control ftl? may be bad luck i dont know. 2v2 normal gaming i think they can win game vs tech very easy. will see next games next time .
