I feel like TC is trolling...


If you've yet to experience this or anything similar, you must be new.

Or, y'know, it kind of shows that it's not a stupid lane.

If he failed then that's fine, but don't blame the lane as though it's impossible.

I had to solo against a double-ranged lane as Centaur once. I ended the game 0/0/[some single digit number]. Won the game because our trilane stomped, but it wasn't exactly fun.

Like others have said, prophet is a fairly decent offlane but it requires a lot of experience doing it, something I imagine you didn't have as it was forced on to you.

At level 1 takes Treants and when creeps spawn, spawn your treants and send them to the fog of war area just behind the trees inbetween their T1 and T2 towers. When the creeps come close, use your treants to guide the enemies creeps through the jungle and back to your tower and then use the treants to tank the creeps while you try to get all the last hits you can.

Doing this allows Prophet to do a lot of things typical off laners can't.

1) The enemy can not deny any of those creeps, you get all the xp, and possibly, all the gold.
2) The enemy is forced to tank your creeps at their tower, so either they lose health, or their tower does.
3) The pulling creeps things resets creep equilibrium.

Do this, and at level three have one point in every ability to when you see an opening, TP bot. Now it's 4v2, so you can possibly (if they picked heroes with stuns or strong slows). If you manage to kill both of the heroes and your tri lane has pushers, you can get that tower. If you do, your team just managed to get a 300-400g each (excluding kills) advantage on the enemy team in the first 3-4 minutes.

If not, or after your done getting the tower, go back to the offlane and continue to pull creeps with your treants and allocate your skills as you normally do.

Have your team force you to solo the suicide lane with an Earthshaker and them complain. I had to use fissure for last hits.

I remember laning the suicide lane as bloodseeker with dragon knight against a trilane. I abandoned it for the jungle. Davion didn't fare as well.

I think your advice is really sound and constructive for the tc. Even I have learned from this info as I don't play prophet often but I have done this with Lone Druid as well and didn't even think to use the treants similarily.

When I play in a team of people that I do not know, I generally pick a hero with little flexibility in laning when team composition practically guarantees that I will not have to lane in a way that I would not want with that hero.
