Dota 2 - Which hero is the biggest counter to Broodmother? ⚡⚡⚡ Esports news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!
Generally speaking, no one likes the players who pick Broodmother in a pub game. This hero is one of the most annoying mid laners to deal with because he deals insane amounts of damage and can farm very fast. What's more, once she hits level six, she can pretty much demolish every laner. Nevertheless, if you are trying to go find a way in which you can get as much MMR as possible, this is one of the ways info dong it.
However, while it's true that Broodmother is really strong, there are certain heroes that can make her life a little bit difficult. Today, we will take a look at one of the biggest, if not the biggest BM counter during the laning stage, and that's Kunkka. So, how do deal with the Admiral whenever you're playing with Broodmother?
Let's face it, Kunkka has one of the best abilities when it comes down to the laning stage and even after that. Tidebringer has a very short cooldown and allows him to easily harras the enemy, as well as the creep wave. Not only does it do a lot of damage, but that damage is also pure, which makes it even harder to stay on the lane. However, what makes Kunkka really strong against Broodmother is the fact that she can farm her spiders very fast. Needless to say, this is one of the worst things that can happen to a Broodmother because she will just give a lot of gold to the enemy laner.
So, one of the things that you must do is to try and avoid it all cost. The easiest way of achieving this is by farming the jungle and wait for him to push the wave. Unless he is a really good player, he will always push the wave towards you, which will allow you to farm it under the tower. Then, once the wave pushes in again, move to the jungle and farm there.
Do not let him use his X and Ult combo
Unless you're a really good Brodmother player, you will most likely move the spiders alongside your hero. While that's not typically a problem, it is something that you need to avoid doing against Kunkka, especially when the hero hits level six. Once that happens, he will try to use his combo in order to harass you as much as possible. So, if he gets that X on you and you have your spiders with you, the ship will also land on them, which means that you will give free Gold to the hero for no reason.
The best way of dodging this is to have your spiders on a separate control. So, once you're that the ship is coming, just move them away so that they don't get hit. Of course, this is easier said than done and will probably take some time to get used to.
