Spirit Breaker - Needs a Nerf ASAP
I honestly Feel like he doesnt fit with the ethos of this game -

his q is broken, and his ulti dps must be reduced - Late game you can beat him but early and mid he is a daemon ! Ganking lanes etc - Thing is the only way ive found to beat him is to hex and orchid him out of fights but i still feel his early game is too strong.

We usually ban him in teams but in solo queue he just ruins games IMO - LS SB combo your litterally a nuke heading toward a destination.

Fun !

P.S. Waiting for the Dota 2 Network Sucks !

Ward early to negate his charge with a stun or tower camping. Also, teamwork.

I don't think he needs a nerf. You can easily counter him by simply having wards. Or if you have enough disables and good positioning you kill him under tower when you get charged. Or have a quick or instant disable like rubick's telekinesis or dragon tail or storm spirits disable and stun him before he charges into you.

Drow needs a nurf you noob.

Yeah i get that but what i mean is - His q can be locked as an escape - and the thing is even if you cc him, your ccing him and not ccing out the carries on their team, therefore a tank forcing you to cc them is a tanks job done, and too well might i add

One simple nerf would stop him abusing his charge spell. They should make it so that if SB begins a charge and the targetted hero moves into shroud (out of sight) then the charge should cease.

The fact that he can stay locked onto a target which has cloaked or otherwise dissappeared from sight and stay locked on while he traverses the entire length of the map without boots of travel is totally OP.

Urm i hope your joking..... Just CC her and even if she bkbs shes squishy early and needs a support... she needs the short lane safe lane and i dont concider her op against sb who can gank lanes like , yep great. Chain cc with him its broken imo

Yes, his q is really broken and can not be interrupted with most control effects (except stun)

EXACTLY MY POINT ! Its silly.

I think it is the only hero who has the ability to permastun, so yes it is a bit silly indeed.

If one of his abilities ( Be it his charge, his haste, the passive stun, or his ulti) got nerfed i would be happy because lets say you survive his initial stun and ulti stun ( most likely because you are a tank) and somehow you do not get stunned from his mask of madness and passive stun combo he would still be able to run faster than you and kill you anyways. And nerfing or replacing one of those abilities would cut down on the amount of noobs playing as him which is very annoying.

use crystal maiden as bait, while the rest of the team hides in the jungle. stun chain and nuke.
its just having map control and map awareness, have those and your golden.

spiritbreaker really needs a nerf, he's way too effective as a ganker. His charge movespeed should be nerfed, his stuns should be less long and at least his charge or his ult should be countered by bkb (but not both or then he would suck again). His str should be nerfed a bit as well.

He is far from imbalanced.
